Chrissy Teigen: My fake hair is fabulous!
Chrissy Teigen didn’t properly consider how switching up colours would affect her “90 per cent very fake” hair.
The 29-year-old model recently dyed her light locks dark brown for a job, but is now back to her sun-kissed hue. She is happy with the result but now realises switching up shades isn’t as easy as she’d once thought.
“We hit up Sally’s [Beauty Supply store] in Mexico, and we just did it on a whim,” she told refinery29.com of her brunette look. “My problem is, 90 per cent of my hair is very fake, so I didn’t realise the toll it would take on all of it. So, getting it back to [blonde] wasn’t the easiest. It took 25 hours, total, over a three-day period."
She’s now very happy with her look, so won’t be making any drastic changes for a while.
Chrissy loves discussing her hair though, including her preference for extensions. The star doesn’t understand why so many other famous women aren’t honest about their locks, as she has no problem admitting that most of hers is fake. The Sports Illustrated star even posts pictures of her extensions on Instagram, including one where she laid all the sections out on a table.
“When I first got them, I had no idea how many people had them on the red carpet,” she explained.
“I don’t know why people want to pretend that they have this natural, full hair. I’ve just never cared about it for some reason - I have no idea why people are so secretive about it. Honestly, I can’t even answer that; it’s just so silly to me. I take it out at the end of every night... It’s like my little buddy.”
The star is as passionate about skincare as she is her hair, explaining she “goes very hard” on products when she is flying. She tries to remember when she’s at home too, but sometimes doesn’t even bother washing her face.
