So we finish it with a very thick layer of something called Aerogel. It’s like hairspray and gel mixed into one — that stuff is like Super Glue, basically. It never moves, but it has a shine to it, so it looks wet. Our hair people, in general, for the boys, they do it once at the beginning of the day.

“I had to train quite a bit. I had stripper bruises. I was quite banged up. Stripping is not easy, I will tell you. I have huge respect for people who do pole dancing. Stripping is incredibly empowering.” —Eva Amurri on being a guest-stripper on the next season of Californication [HuffPo]
