Disney+’s “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” finally brings Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk herself, to life after spending over 40 years in the Marvel comic universe. Walters (Tatiana Maslany) is just your average, ambitious, young attorney before an accident involving her cousin Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) gives her superpowers of her own.

Given that this is the first time we’ve seen this Marvel character come to life on screen, the show’s hair and makeup teams felt a great responsibility in staying true to the iconic character while also bringing her into the modern world. Luckily, the first She-Hulk appearance in the comics dates back to 1980, so there was a lot of material to work with.

“We wanted to give an ode to She-Hulk — to get it as close as possible to the comic books,” hair department head Amy Wood tells POPSUGAR. “We’d never seen her live, ever, so it was an interesting process.” Makeup department head Essie Cha seconds this: “The comic book was my Bible.”

Ahead, Wood and Cha give us a behind-the-scenes look into the creation of She-Hulk, plus other iconic characters in the series.
