buy disulfiram over counter I heard you were a fan of the original Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (G.L.O.W.) series from the ‘80s. How did you come to work on the Netflix series?
I was working on Masters of Sex and Betty Gilpin was doing a guest spot. She asked to borrow a wig for an audition for this new show, GLOW. As soon as she said it, I was like, “You mean the wrestling show?! I was obsessed with it in the ‘80s!” She suggested I try to get on. I immediately called my friend Theraesa Rivers who does hair, we did Mad Men together. Then I called my agent and told her I needed to get this show. The rest is history.

So much fun! First of all, it was so nice to work on an ‘80s show because I lived it. I remembered it, so I didn’t have to do much research. It was fun to go back into that time
period and get to have so many different characters to give their own look and personality.
With such a large main cast what was the collaboration like between the hair and wardrobe dept?
It was a team effort. We did everything together. Beth Morgan, the costume designer, came in first and she had done her initial research and designs. By the time Theraesa
and I came in, we were making books of photos. For the comedy duo — Dawn (Rebekka Johnson) and Stacey (Kimmy Gatewood) — the backstory was they were both hairdressers at the mall. Since they went to cosmetology school, they knew what they were doing when it came to their own hair and makeup, so we could really play it up with them by using a lot of color. On the first day, they cut their hair, shaving it on one side. They were really going for it! Once you see that, you know how far you can push it.
