The Story Behind Marla Grayson's Sharp Blunt-Bob Hairstyle
It's hard to picture Grayson with any hairstyle other than her blond blunt bob but believe it or not, she was almost a redhead. "In the end, we didn't want it to be predictable," Lori Guidroz, head of the movie's hair department, told POPSUGAR. "For her to be a redhead seemed almost too on-point or too obvious." Ultimately, Guidroz pulled inspiration from a severe bob that Rosamund had a few years ago and a baby's pure blond hair color. "I wanted it to be very streamlined," said Guidroz. "She's a very strong woman. She's very determined. She's not one to be messed with, and we wanted to portray that in every aspect of her look, from head to toe."
Because the bob haircut was so sharp and precise, it took a lot of styling to ensure not a single hair ever fell out of place. Guidroz would prep Rosamund's hair with a volume booster, blow dry it, then flat iron it straight until "you could see the line really strongly." Then she'd spray her hair with the Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine Spray ($30) to boost shine. Dry shampoo was also a must, as a person like Grayson would never sport second-day hair. "I always wanted her hair to just look super clean and sharp," said Guidroz.
