Amazon Prime Video’s newest TV show, “Daisy Jones & The Six,” based on the popular 2019 novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, is reviving the 1970s rockstar look. The so-called “Me Decade” is known for its wild creativity and individuality, so naturally the miniseries provides loads of vintage hair and makeup inspiration throughout — especially in the form of Riley Keough’s lead singer Daisy Jones.
Consisting of flashbacks of a Fleetwood Mac-inspired group as they’re interviewed for a documentary years after their breakup, the series’ strong beauty aesthetic stretches across a 20-year timespan. The primary task of hair department head MaryAnn Hennings and makeup department head Rebecca Wachtel was to transport viewers back to the mesmerizing period when the tumultuous, fiery Daisy catapulted to fame as the frontwoman for The Six, a band led by Sam Claflin’s Billy Dunne.
The process of bringing the characters to life was no small undertaking
