Yes, That's All Leonardo DiCaprio's Real Hair
One review for the film noted that Dr. Mindy may be DiCaprio's most "sexless" character, but we beg to differ, mostly because of his natural wavy hair that takes center stage. According to Dehaney, many of the cast's personal hair and makeup teams were unable to be on set for filming, so her team had to step in when it came to designing and styling on a daily basis. Still, that didn't stop her from creating this spot-on vibe for DiCaprio.
"We used the natural wave in his hair and kind of just let it go where it wanted to go," she said. "It would be like a guy that doesn't really bother; probably doesn't even comb his hair, maybe just runs his fingers through his hair and lets it dry." As we get further into the movie, said Dehaney, we do see his character put a little more effort into grooming due to, you know, professional appearances he needs to make in regards to the "planet-killing" comet.
It's important to note that his facial hair did get some help from hand-placed extensions and the makeup department. "That's all laid by hand. Maybe one to four hairs at a time," she said. "It's very time consuming."
