When filming began for the Hollywood adaptation of the video game The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Rinaldi was working for Oscar and BAFTA award-winning hair and make-up designer Jan Archibald, whose wig company London Wigs was charged with the hair design.

“I did all the wigs for Gemma Arterton, who’s the lead actress in it. She had these really long wigs, which were really hard to get the long hair for.”

With each wig requiring about 50 hours of work, when the movie was finally released in 2010, all Rinaldi could look at was Arterton’s character’s hair. “To see it when you make it and then to see it in the film is quite different. It certainly adds a different dimension to watching a film,” she said.

Rinaldi uses only natural human hair for her wigs, preferring European or Russian hair.

“We don’t use Asian hair that has been stripped and dyed, especially if I’m doing blondes or whites. You can process Asian hair to make it blonde, but the texture is different.”
