Hair can be difficult to maintain, are we right? So sometimes going the extra mile and styling it to look presentable is a concept that belongs in the too-hard basket — but not anymore. Starting right now, we're running a weekly series of inspirational hair galleries, where we take hair colour and style cues from our favourite celebrities. First up in the series: vampy and mysterious brunette beauties. From Miranda Kerr's sexy waves, to Alexa Chung's rough chop, Zooey Deschanel's blunt fringe and Kate Middleton's fit-for-a-princess shine — all the dark hair inspiration you need is in here, ready to be spied on, snapped up and made your own. Are we missing any brunettes you take inspiration from? Let us know, and we'll add them to the gallery! Next week, we'll turn our attention to racy redheads we love.
Katie isn't the first actress to break into the business side of beauty. Jennifer Aniston recently gained a stake in Living Proof. It seems brands are no longer on the hunt for just a gorgeous face; now being a spokesmodel requires business savvy. "Katie is a fashionista, a mother and an entrepreneur. In short, she is our consumer," said Joan Malloy, president of Alterna. "Like her, this is a brand that has been very much around, but hiding in plain sight."
How can one forget Katie Holmes as the adorable Joey Potter on Dawson's Creek? And since the show's finale almost a decade ago, Katie has accomplished a great deal. She's starred on Broadway, become a mother, and even created her own fashion line. But through it all, she still seems to maintain her signature casual-cool style. See Katie's top looks over the years, from blonde highlights to her oft-copied blunt bob, in celebration of her 34th birthday this week.
It's funny to think just how far Katie Holmes has come from being little Joey Potter in Dawson's Creek. From the days of pre-ghd'd hair. Just like her former co-star Michelle Williams, she's come a long way. Now she's all about the softly textured lob, the ringlets or the sleek and slick fashion-forward 'dos. But one thing has consistently stayed the same: her nude makeup palette. Save for a few forays into smoky eye territory and a racy red lip, Katie's played it safe with neutrals.
