After Big left Carrie at the altar, director Michael Patrick King was very clear with the hair and makeup teams that he wanted her look to mirror her depression. "I think of this as Carrie's dark period. I was thinking goth," said Chin. "I just drowned her in black liner." Lyons's job, however, required a bit more planning. "Before the wig was made, we tested hair colors against SJP's skin to find the shade that was closest to her natural base. We added auburn and honey gold highlights so that the wig wouldn't read too flat on screen," she said. "Carrie was meant to look beautiful, but like she wasn't paying as much attention to her hair."
