Hailee Steinfeld too busy at Fashion Week

Hailee Steinfeld is too busy to wash her hair during New York Fashion Week.

The 19-year-old actress is constantly rushing from show to show so always has a kit of beauty essentials to help her stay looking her best, including dry shampoo to keep her locks in check.

She said: "You know a powder is good when you're running around and it's freaking hot as New York City is in September. That's always key. A lip, obviously, even though I'm not very good at touching up my lip -- I need reminders. And a phone charger.

"Dry shampoo is a must."

The 'True Grit' star admits it is extremely "stressful" trying to manage her time to ensure she gets to all the shows, especially when impractical but fashionable outfits make it hard to be comfortable.

She told People Style: "Having to be places on time with traffic and distance and getting ready and wearing things that you literally can't sit in a car straight up in with a seat belt on like normal people. That's probably the most stressful thing."

But while her schedule may be hectic, Hailee adores the "madness" of New York Fashion Week and finds it "pretty special" being involved.

She said: "There's nothing that you could compare New York Fashion Week to.

"You're walking down the street and you see models catching cabs and going from show to show and it's something you don't see anywhere else.

"Then again having the honour to be involved in it and going to shows and meeting designers and seeing the work that goes into a show that lasts minutes is amazing ... It's pretty special."
