Hulu's "How I Met Your Father," the spin-off show of the hit 2000s sitcom "How I Met Your Mother" tells the story of Sophie (played by Hilary Duff) and her quest for love in New York City as a hopeless romantic. Like the original show, it's narrated by her future self (Kim Cattrall), who's explaining to her son how she met his father.

Overall, you'll find the hair and makeup in the show to be tame by comparison to other TV shows out there right now (we're looking at you "Euphoria"). That was intentional. The characters are meant to look realistic — like a "good looking version of what we all see every day," Katy McClintock, the show's hair department head, tells POPSUGAR. Many of the hairstyles and makeup looks were things that your average person could do at home: beachy waves, elevated space buns, glittery eyeshadows — and use products that are currently trending.

Ahead, learn more about those products that were used on set to create the show's hair and makeup looks and how Duff inspired her character's look.
