#NowPinning: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Perfect Blonde Hair
It's Gwyneth Paltrow's birthday and instead of sending flowers (so 2015) I'm using the occasion as an excuse to appreciate everything the actress and healthy living guru has given me over the years. #Blessed. #SoGrateful. From her morning smoothie recipe to pimple-busting secrets, Paltrow is my go-to for beauty and wellness advice. Importantly, she's also a constant source of hairspo for both colour (gloriously creamy blonde) and style (ever-changing). Have you ever seen a snap of GP with less-than-perfect hair? I haven't. Even when she's off-duty, Paltrow's mane is covetable. Of course, like all celebrities she does her best work on the red carpet. Lucky for me there's no lack of enviable blonde hair shots to text to my colourist. Even if you're not a blonde, you'll find inspiration in GP's ability to always kill it in the hair stakes. Got your Pinning finger ready? Bust out the GP-approved Beauty Seed Bars, and keep scrolling for six times her perfect blonde hair really was everything.
There's something about wavy styles that really show off an incredible blonde colour like GP's. To recreate this look you'll need a wide-barreled tong and a flexible hairspray like Elnett ($11).
This retro-inspired style is so perfectly pretty and yet not overdone. (Just like Paltrow herself, really.) For a similar softness, try heated rollers like these ones from Babyliss ($130).
Straight but with movement and texture, we suggest adding a matte wax or solid dry shampoo to your ends for GP's piece-y feel.
