Book-to-screen adaptations can be a polarizing topic. Some people aren't concerned about how closely the new plot follows the original or how the characters look IRL. Others, however, are deeply invested in every tiny detail and wait with bated breath until the premiere. Luckily, fans don't have to worry too much about "Daisy Jones & The Six".

If you've read the book, you can maybe agree that it was surprisingly easy to picture the characters. Author Taylor Jenkins Reid admitted that the inspiration for the story came after seeing a live performance of Fleetwood Mac, specifically the palpable tension between two of its lead singers, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. Eventually, that spawned the idea of writing an oral history, in a similar vein as "Behind the Music," which chronicles the meteoric rise and abrupt dissolution of a fictional '70s rock band, Daisy Jones & The Six.

While the cast spent pre-production in singing lessons, the show's hair department head, MaryAnn Hennings, and makeup department head, Rebecca Wachtel, were doing research, much of which included studying how rockstars we know and love today — The Rolling Stones, Debbie Harry, and, yes, Fleetwood Mac — came alive on stage. Daisy Jones & The Six may not be real, but they sure look iconic on screen.

In the slides ahead, Hennings and Wachtel share how they created some of the show's most memorable beauty looks, the products that brought them to life, and just how much of Nicks we'll see in Daisy Jones.
