To achieve the signature slick look of Don Draper, actor Jon Hamm sometimes has to hit the barber's seat three times a day.
Jon Hamm's hostility towards boxer shorts caused a raucous in the Mad Men costume department, and according to the show's make-up artist, Lana Horochowski, he has the beauty team working double time too.
As the series veered towards the 60s era, Horochowski says that some of the male cast are now subjected to fake facial hair. Oh, and "we throw a little tinted moisturiser on them".
It all gets a bit hairy in the female make-up department too, as Horochowski focuses on the "solid brows" given to both gives both January Joans, who plays Betty Draper, and Christina Hendricks, aka Joan Harris. And if you fancy copying Joan's voluptuous pout, 'Baby Lips' by Laura Mercier and 'True Coral' by Tom Ford are the team's favourite lip lacquers for her.
Unfortunately, it's Peggy Olson, played by Elizabeth Moss who pulls the short straw in the make-up department. "We try to make her eyeliner wobbly…messy without looking too clownish" to achieve the idea that she's always trying, but perhaps falling short in the immaculate Mad Men make-up stakes.
Horochowski is now working on a programme called Look Good ... Feel Better, which teaches women undergoing cancer treatments new make-up techniques.
