Also with high and low settings on hair dryers, neither are exactly what I want. So ours is on a roller—that way you can get in-betweens settings and not damage your hair, which just makes me so happy. And the price point for me is very important. Anything we do with Flower, I want to make attainable and affordable. It’s an all-economic party and an all-ages party.
You said you think about hair first-thing when you get a new role. Of all the characters you’ve played, which one had the best hair?
That’s hard because I tried to play as much as I could. I loved Lucy’s big white mermaid hair in 50 First Dates, that was fun. I also loved that mullet wig I wore in Charlie’s Angels 2 during the motocross scene. God, that wig! I was so in love with it.
If you could only use three beauty products for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Well, now I’m going to sound bougie because it’s so expensive, but I have a full-blown addiction to the Sisley Nutritive Lip Balm. What else? This is hard! I also love Bioderma Micellar Water. And my favorite hair mask is the Lazartigue Nourish Mask. It doesn’t have protein, so you can really leave it in. But I’m also really into this Hairitage mask by Mindy McKnight. It’s so good. It’s really hard to pair down my favorites to three. I could give you 50!
What beauty habits have you missed during the pandemic?
Going to concerts and putting feathers in my hair and glitter all over my face. And taking my eyeshadow to my temples and wearing weird patterns of clothing. It’s fun to be playful and express myself.
What’s one beauty rule you swear by?
Keep playing and trying. Although now I’m very settled. This will be my look probably until I’m in the grave. I’ve tried everything, and now I just can’t handle the fuss. But with my hair, I’ve never regretted trying every color. And my roots are getting so grey now, I don’t know if my very soft translucent base is going to work any longer. I do miss red hair. Maybe I might do a cayenne or papaya shade?
What trend are you glad is in the past?
Tweezing my eyebrows really, really thin. It was fun when I was young, but now I like to go back and forth from a medium to a bushy brow. When you’re older you don’t want a line of eyebrows. At least, it doesn’t look good on me.
What is one hair tip that completely changed your life?
There are too many! I love a good shea butter mask, or any mask that isn’t protein-filled that you can leave on your hair for 12 to 24 hours. A little dusting at your ends really does make a huge difference. It’s not an urban legend. And know the color wheel of your hair. Hair color is such an art—for example, if you’re going from red to brown, you want to get that red out before you distribute the brown or you’re going to have a shitshow on your hands.
What’s the hair product you use the most?
I definitely interact with my Wet Brush a lot. It’s such a joy. It feels nice on your scalp, it doesn’t hurt or rip your hair apart. My daughters use it too. We’re all big Wet Brush girls.
What do you think will be the biggest hair trend in 2021?
I think the trend will be called: leaving the house. And if you want to style your hair? We’ve got some tools for that.
