‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Cast Used oVertone To Achieve Their 60s Hair Colors

Wondering how the cast of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood got their hair color? They used oVertone! Check out what products helped these stars get their look.

Quentin Tarantino’s most recent film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, was a box office success for many reasons, including its all-star cast made up of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie, but of course all we could focus on was the hair!

Janine Thompson, the film’s hair Dept. Head, had a clear vision of how the cast’s locks would be colored and styled to achieve an authentic look mirroring the vibe of 1969 Los Angeles, and that vision included a diverse range of oVertone shades for their hair color

“I loved having the versatility of the oVertone colors in my trailer while we were shooting. Having oVertone was like having a paint palette to create whatever we needed…whether it was to alter or correct a modern color, or to create a new color,” Janine told us.

Pastel Blue Daily Conditioner, which is ideal for maintaining pastel blue hair or toning orange-tinted brassiness, was used to remove modern highlights from gold-toned, brown hair, while Espresso Brown Coloring Conditioner was used to complete selected looks.

To achieve Margot Robbie’s iconic 60s platinum blonde look, Janine gave Margot’s hair a quick rinse with Pastel and Extreme Silver Daily Conditioners to cancel out any yellow undertones thanks to their purple-tinted bases. For her scene practicing with Bruce Lee for her movie, The Wrecking Crew, Janine got Margot’s hair in character with a combo of Original Rose Gold and Pastel Red Daily Conditioners.
