Claire Danes: Am I a Natural Blonde?

Claire Danes' SImplified Beauty Routine
Francis Specker/Landov

She rocked red hair in My So Called Life and some brown-tinged curls in Temple Grandin, but Claire Danes admits she has no idea what her real hair color is. “I’ve been coloring it since I was 13,” she tells Stylelist. “I look at my brother and say, ‘Oh, that’s what I would look like.’ I identify my current blonde as my ‘base color,’ so I return to it when I literally have to wash a character out of my hair.” For such transitions, she leaves her locks in the hands of colorist Steven Amendola at New York’s John Frieda Salon. “I’m pretty passive about this stuff, so I trust him. If he decides to go lighter because it’s spring, I just say, ‘uh huh.'” When it comes to her beauty routine, Danes cuts corners by using the lash growth drug Latisse, which she recently became a spokesperson for. “My makeup artist, Matin, sometimes even has to trim them a bit,” she says of her lengthy lashes. “I still use mascara on the red carpet, but I never wear fake eyelashes anymore, which I used to do pretty often. It helps cut down on that whole process of being made up.” For more on Danes’ beauty tips — and thoughts on plastic surgery — visit Stylelist.com. –Kim Peiffer
