Here are the ladies who will make you look good. Kim on the left (hair) and LaVerne on the right (makeup). I spent a good portion of the afternoon hanging out in their area, and they are total dolls!
They don’t have offices but they do have their respective hair and makeup stations, with their staff sitting at long picnic tables, waiting to rush onstage to do a touchup whenever they see something amiss in the monitors.
Oh, and you heard it here first, folks — Kim told me that John has officially given a name to Jim Halpert’s tousled hairstyle: the “Farrah Fawcett for Men”! Kim says, “I do his haircuts, he does the ‘de-crunching’ of the products … as I like to say. Which means he swirls his hands around in his hair until we are both happy.”
Wait a minute — is that Angela? Omigosh, no, that’s Angela’s stand-in, Lyndzi Kanter! That’s right — because some scenes require Angela Martin to be standing in the background, and standing could actually induce labor at this point, those scenes are handled by Lyndzi, who jokingly told me she’s fully prepared to deliver Angela’s baby as well.
The stand-in is a dead ringer for Angela, partly because she’s Angela’s exact height and size, and partly because she got her hair dyed exactly to match, plus she wears hair extensions (being removed here by Kim at the end of the day) to match Angela’s hair length!
