Amanda Seyfried's Veronica Lake Locks
Hairstylist Jenny Cho and Amanda Seyfried
Actresses love to invoke old Hollywood glamour, but few capture the part as well as Les Miserables' Seyfried, 27. Suave Professionals stylist Jenny Cho did traditional pin curls by curling sections of hair, which she rolled up and pinned to the head while they cooled. "This technique creates the classic waves," says Cho, who recommends letting them cool for 15 minutes or more. When cool, she spritzed hairspray onto a paddle brush and gently brushed out the curls. Seyfried is an unabashed fan of Cho's work: "I know my hair is always going to look beautiful," she says. "It's nice that I can count on her not only as a hairstylist but as a friend." So what goes best with Veronica Lake waves? Bold red lips, of course. "My inspiration was French glamour with a beautiful bright lip," says makeup artist Monika Blunder, "and I kept the rest of the face superminimal." To complete the look, she used Cle de Peau products (Seyfried is the face of the brand), including the Enriched Lip Luminizer in Redcurrant Jam.
“Jenny is the only person who cuts my hair,” says Seyfried. “It’s more easily styled because she’s given it a very specific cut. Not a lot of people can cut hair like she does, which is also why she’s so recognized for hair.”
