7816 Launchpad’s Alyson Osterman-Kerr chats with After Earth Hairstylist Araxi Lindsey to get the beauty scoop on the upcoming flick! How did you first get involved with the film?Pierce Austin is a friend of mine. He’s also Will and Jaden Smith’s Hairstylist/Barber, and the Department Head for the film. He invited me aboard to style Sophie Okonedo, Zoe Kravitz, and help out with other hairstyling duties. How did you research and plan the actors’ styles?As I read the script, I started envisioning ideas for hairstyles. I then asked M. Knight Shaymalan, Will Smith, and a few writers about the personalities of both characters. I also took into consideration what my Department Head had in mind. What were your favorite styles to create? How did you craft these looks?I enjoyed creating the styles for both ladies. Knowing they were pleased with my creativity warms my heart. To create beautiful waves for Zoe Kravitz, I first applied White Sands Orchids Oil.
