Amanda Seyfried has the kind of long, golden locks many women would die for. The actress, who shot to fame in the movie 'Mean Girls' and went on to take a lead role in the Hollywood blockbuster 'Mamma Mia' (on the set of which she met boyfriend Dominic Cooper), Seyfried is a regular on the red carpet with the ability to carry off all kinds of styles.
Seyfried herself has a delicate, heart shaped face with a porcelain complexion and strong cheekbones, so she can carry off a range of styles effortlessly. This is a big plus for the red carpet as it means her hair can be styled according to the outfit she has chosen to wear. Here are some tips on how to create some of her trademark hair styles yourself.
Seyfried attended the Tribeca Film Festival wearing a
trendy outfit with a youthful hair style to match. The actress updated a
classic bun by making it tousled and relaxed, giving it a chic twist.
To replicate this style for your own hair, create volume and height by
backcombing the back of the hair. Next, pin most of it into place
allowing some strands of hair to fall freely. You will need to use a
good hairspray to keep the style in place.
has also mastered the 1940s wave - a classic look which she wore with
added volume for real Hollywood film star style. To recreate this, use a
round bristled brush while blow-drying the hair, this will add volume
to the look. Next, section off the hair and use large Velcro rollers to
create the desired gentle wave. Pull back one side of the hair and
secure with hair grips the same colour as the hair. They will appear
invisible and this will create a sleek, chic style. To add shine and
bounce to the look, use a light serum cream or shine spray, and finally
add salon-quality hairspray to create a smooth finish and natural hold.
with her varying looks, Seyfried is likely to be receiving regular
treatments to achieve her sun kissed, seamless highlights, which work
well with her warm skin tone. If you want highlights like Seyfried's,
ask your colourist for a full head of multi-tonal blonde highlights,
which will need ideally to be applied with a chunky weave. Golden
highlights are best suited to lighter skin as they add warmth and depth.
the roots start to show, it will be necessary to add colour across the
T-section, and one option is to add lighter champagne tones which will
show through the more golden highlights underneath. The contrast between
colours will be noticeable straight after the first colouring, but
quite quickly the colours will blend into one another to give a natural
and dazzling appearance.
Looking after blonde hair
you have adopted the blonde look, it is vital to look after your hair,
keeping it well moisturised and healthy. A weekly deep conditioning
treatment is the best way for blondes to do this, preventing the hair
from getting dry and brittle and keeping that shiny, glossy appearance.
