special effects hair

“I had done another TV series at one point called, um, Providence where they had me comb the hair down and they couldn’t do it.  And FINALLY, the special effects department came into Hair & Make-up and they go, “No, no, we can get it down. ::laughter::  We have this stuff called Gafqat.  It’s an industrial strength polymere.  You just stick it on there and it’s like plastic.”  So they did it and, uh, it’s like, “Wow, this is really cool.”  And sure enough, after an hour…BOING!”
