Style Oprah’s Blonde Hair Is Out of This World
The Butterbeer Latte Is Back At Starbucks Under A Different Name
Those who frequent forums devoted to exploring all the so-called "secret" menu items that can be ordered at Starbucks are certainly all too familiar with the Harry Potter-inspired Butterbeer Latte. As tempted as we have been by the idea of drinking a beverage close to the boy wizard’s go-to Three Broomsticks order, we haven’t actually tried this Butterbeer Latte simply because we don’t want to be too much of a bother to our baristas. Now, however, we won’t have to worry about that because the drink is coming back to Starbucks’ official menu.
Much of the film A Wrinkle in Time takes place in the untapped corners of our universe. In fact, three of the main characters — Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which, played by Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Oprah Winfrey, respectively — are celestial beings disguised as humans. Inspired by their mysterious backstories, the film’s hair and makeup teams got creative. In the end, Oprah became a blonde, Mindy Kaling wore elaborate braids, and Reese Witherspoon transformed into a redhead.
The Cut talked to the movie’s hair department head Kim Kimble, a hairstylist who frequently, to get a better understanding of A Wrinkle in Time’s hair philosophy.
McDonald’s Fries Chemical May Cure Baldness, Study Says
The "simple" method has regrown hair on mice and preliminary tests have indicated it's likely to be successful on humans. Japanese scientists may have discovered a cure for baldness and it lies within a chemical used to make McDonald’s fries.A stem cell research team from Yokohama National University have used a “simple” method to regrow hair on mice with dimethylpolysiloxane, the silicone added to McDonald’s fries to stop cooking oil from frothing.Preliminary tests have indicated the ground-breaking method is likely to be just as successful when transferred to human skin cells.
What was the creative process like in determining the movie’s hairstyles?
It took a couple of months of prep to pull together images for our inspiration boards. The wigs took several weeks to make and we had over 50 on set. Each “Mrs.” had five looks, but you only saw four in the movie. These women were beings from outer space, and so we were going for something that you’ve never seen before because they shouldn’t look like your ordinary person.
This is the first time I can recall seeing Oprah with blonde hair. Why did you decide to go with that color?
We wanted something different because she was coming from “the universe.” The universe made me think of precious jewels, minerals, platinum, the stars, so that inspired the color. Even though her character was wise, I didn’t want her to be gray. I wanted her to look very pretty, yet different. She’s also 30 feet tall and a diva. So we did everything a little exaggerated: the braid, the texture, the shape of the hair.
Why you should never sleep with your hair in a ponytail
Breakage can occur when you sleep with a ponytail in. Instead, you might want to try a scrunchie or just leave your hair down.When I was a kid, a classmate of mine had perfectly straight hair that I was infinitely jealous of. Not understanding that it was how her hair naturally fell, I asked her what she did to get perfectly straight hair. She told me that every night she slept with her hair in a ponytail and that if I wanted straight hair I should too.
Blonde was something Oprah was interested in. She had never done blonde before and the director  wanted it too. I tested different colors on her; we tried red, we tried copper. I saw her skin illuminate when we put the blonde on her. We took pictures and the director approved it, and she approved it.
What about the hair for Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon?
Mindy’s character always repeats quotes from different famous people from around the world. Since she was very culturally aware, her hair was inspired by different cultures as well: African and Asian cultures. Although her [character’s] hair was her natural color, I wanted to add color as well. But not hair color: string. She had one look with … I almost want to call them horns. It was all about texture, and it reminded me of certain Asian and African hairstyles. And then the bangs made it look super cute.
Reese was more fairytale: whimsical, a little earthy, and a little bit of fire within. That’s why we went with the red hair. We did a lot of fishtail braids with her, too.

"The appointment took about six hours," colorist Aura Friedman tells Refinery29.
Were the wigs sweaty?
We constructed them to be very comfortable. That was something I was adamant about because they had to wear them all day.
There’s a part in the movie where Meg (played by Storm Reid), who has naturally curly hair, is given the option to become an entirely different person, complete with a new wardrobe and straightened hair. All she has to do is join the bad guy. Looking at her hair, what message where you trying to convey with the straightened style?
It’s something the director requested. There was a message in that, of course. Right now, natural, curly hair is making a big impact in the beauty industry, especially for women of color. The message in the beauty world is for you to love who you are.
Straight hair was supposed to represent what perfect looked like in Meg’s mind. The straight hair was a struggle within — what Meg thought she was supposed to be — but then she came into herself as a young woman who accepted who she was. She said that she’d stay the same and rock her curly hair.
This Student's Prom Dress Was An Homage to Black Icons Like Michelle Obama and Oprah
At one point Zach Galifianakis appears with a gorgeous braided. How did that hairstyle come to be?
I said “Let’s do a man bun!” It was made out of braids and we made it messy because he lives in a cave. I thought he looked very cool. He had the little ear cuffs, he had a man bun, he had a beard. He loved it. Before we started filming, we showed him inspirational pictures and when he saw his hairstyle, he was like: Yeeeeah.
What was the hero hair product on set?
We had tons of hairspray.. It’s the best hair spray; the hair won’t move after that. Curl products were also important on set. We used .
Which look are you most proud of?
What Oprah wore when they were on Uriel, the colorful planet. Her hair look liked a star, in a way. That was the most difficult one to figure out. We did the hair five times before we were all happy.
