Commit to gray
Let the actress’s shiny, swingy hair be an inspiration to us all: Going silver can be foxy. To keep it that way, hairstylist Jet Rhys, owner of the Jet Rhys salons in California, offers this advice: Once a week, use a purple-tinted shampoo, “which will brighten your shade and prevent yellowy tones.” (We like Matrix Total Results Color Care So Silver Shampoo, $9.) Then, “since gray hair tends to be dry, work a dab of leave-in conditioner through damp hair, even if you used a rinse-out conditioner.” Once your hair is dry, rub a drop of lightweight hair oil between your palms, then over any flyaways. “If at any point your shade starts to look drab, a few pale blonde highlights placed around your face can work wonders,” Rhys says.
Do a (sexy) middle part
People think of a center part as being somewhere between hippie throwback and schoolgirl. But done right it’s once of the quickest tricks for a sultry look. “A middle part with pin-straight hair can be a little severe, but when it’s worn with undone waves or air-dried hair of any texture, it’s soft and feminine,” says Rhys. Just be sure to use your fingers–not a comb–to create your part so it’s not too perfect. And while Rhys says this look works best on hair that’s chin-length or longer, “if your hair is shorter and you have brow-skimming bangs, adding a center part can be really lovely too.”
