Ever wonder how all that gorgeous hair on TV makes its way into your living room? Michelle Rene Elam, the department head of hair on CW’s Jane the Virgin, shares her TV styling secrets and tips for creating the hair on the hit show…

Jane’s long-hair look.

Hair Changes On The Show “Big changes happened in Season 3 on Jane The Virgin. The lovely Gina Rodriguez, who plays Jane, returned with her head partly shaved, so I had wigs designed to portray her regular Jane look. She had to sport the wigs 16 hours a day. While she was on set acting, I would be prepping another wig for her next look. We did a lot of fun creations through the season—the 1700s, 1902, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, aging everyone 20+ years, a Cinderella & Prince Charming episode, cat woman, Cavemen, Flamingos, and a spin-off of a Sex & the City story.

The series then jumped three years in time and everyone got a new overall slightly grown-up look. Jane sported her stylish natural short hair—no longer needing all the wigs except for flashback scenes or period pieces. Xo wore a shorter length and side part with a more natural curl. Petra’s hair was shorter and more relaxed. Rafael became Zen and messy after his bout in prison. It was an adventuresome and evolving hair season.”

Time jump backward!

A Typical Hair Day on Set “Atypical hair day is a marathon of creating styles. While we are designing the actors looks, executing hair changes through the day, and staying on top of their upkeep on set, we are also wig shopping and designing the next episode. We had an episode where waterfalls of gushing water fell on different actors. We had to shoot everything with their hair dry so we didn’t have to spend hours re-doing their hair from being soaked. The episodes keep us on our toes!”

Xo and Jane with those fab waves!

Long-Lasting WavesLong-lasting waves are vastly important and vary with each actress depending on their hair texture. We had a very rainy season in Los Angeles, so we had to up our demands of keeping their hair in check. If their hair was falling flat, I would ‘wake it up’ by flipping it to the opposite side, brushing my fingers through to keep the curls flowing, then flip it back to continue matching in the scene. I also relied on White Sands Haircare’s Orchids Oil to control frizz, CHI Dry Shampoo for volume and removing moisture, and a strong hairspray.
