    Even before Lenny Kravitz was cast as Cinna, the assigned stylist to Katniss, fans were abuzz about the character's look. For Flowers, one of her best decisions was to step away and put the wigs down. "We tried a few things at first, like gold pomade that looks like gold shimmer on the hair," she says. "He's probably going to wear it at his concert, but it wasn't right. After a few attempts, it was obvious: Keep the hair simple." The only adornment was a brush of gold eyeliner, which Flowers says was perfect for the serious character.
