Hello! Calling all hair specialists! I am a photographer that will be shooting a young punk (as in her fashion, not her attitude) in the role of Leeloo in "Fifth Element".

She will have no trouble finding dye, but what are some home-based products she will be able to use that will give her the almost-dred look of Milla's red locks?

She is used to a blonde-red mohawk held up with glue and egg yolk, so if that helps you in what her resources are, there you go. And possibly any tips in rescuing her hair from whatever damage the glue and egg yolk may have caused, it might be helpful :).

First. What is her hair like? She had glue and egg yoke. The egg is protein going into what she has. Does she have the same mohawk she had or has her hair changed?

There are more questions than answers.

In a shoot.. a stylest can tie her hair to look exacly the same. Is she supposed to be like that? It depend on the money?

This is shoot for promo for a another movie.. right!

This must be a sequel to "5th element?" So, Taking out any glue that is in hair can be done by "Prell" or any dergent you want. Yet, you have establish some body to her hair and what she might want after the shoot. If there is mohawk.. she will need more hair to find your shoot.

Now, use hydrating stuff in her hair to use the stuff you have to make her hair into the "fifth element". Don't kill her... make sure it comes out! Use the right angles to show it!

Let her dye and fly it away.

If this doesn't work, their are stylists who specialize in areas of this kind.

For instance. a short haired girl can have her hair long by a treatment of tying small strands to make long hair. Yes.. what people will do!...

But, for you it is a business and money and what they want.

Is this a promo for a the same movie or a sequel. If a sequel.. have her hair longer. Use tie methos to make her hair longer and with Willis or whatever.
