"The change in her hair and wardrobe is significant between seasons one and two," Cheryl Wischhover says of Sarah Snook's character. "Her previously long, flowy hair became an angular bob. She traded slouchy, almost sloppy, sweaters and pants in soft colors for a simple yet luxurious wardrobe of crisp monochromatic trousers paired with turtlenecks or button-downs. Shiv’s look was carefully calculated to reflect both her environment and her ambitions." Wischhover spoke to Seasons 1 and 2 costume designer Michelle Matland and Season 2 hair department head Jasen Sica about Shiv's transformation. “That was more the identity of a working woman out in the workplace. Prior to her transformation, she had her own life and was basically trying to distinguish herself as someone on her own,” says Matland. “She wants to be identified as a real person.” Sica, meanwhile, discussed cutting off eight inches from Snook's hair for Shiv's transformation. “Shiv’s hair needed to be stronger-looking this year," he says. "She has stepped up her image. The change is significant." ALSO: Succession's Tom and Cousin Greg have TV's best dynamic.
