You don't have to be ashamed — we've all been guilty of cutting corners when it comes to our beauty routines. Whether it's by not quite removing our makeup the way we should, skipping out on SPF, or deciding to cut our own hair instead of going to a professional at a salon, laziness and low budgets affect everyone. But what if we told you that Hollywood royalty felt the same? Well, it's true.
In a recent interview, actress Helen Mirren revealed her at-home hair hack that she turns to when she's feeling lazy and doesn't want to phone her hairstylist. It's so relatable, and we can almost guarantee you've done this before, too.
Well, she just got a whole lot cooler.
On July 12, she revealed her beauty routine on British daytime talk show This Morning. It was there that she revealed that she doesn't always make a formal hair appointment when she's in need of a trim.
“I said to my brilliant hair guy here, Stefan, ‘The cut I have right now, Stefan, is something that I did with the kitchen scissors about a week ago in my kitchen. So you know, maybe you could clean it up a bit for me?’ So yes, I do cut my own hair,” Mirren said.
This is the second time Mirren has made headlines for her hair this year.
In May, much to the surprise of basically everyone, the actress dyed her hair pastel pink for Cannes Film Festival. According to The Hollywood Reporter, her 'do was the work of hairstylist Stephane Lancien. The summery shade paired masterfully with her rose gold Elie Saab gown, which glittered and glistened on the Cannes red carpet.
Keep it up, Dame.
Judging by the looks of her killer hair, the at-home haircuts are surely doing their job. Every time she's spotted out, her locks appear healthy, even, and enviously colored. A legendary actress turned beauty icon? We stan.
