Sarah Jessica Parker Talks Hair and Makeup

SJP Talks Luscious Locks and Being Bad at Makeup

I've just about gotten over not being able to meet Sarah Jessica Parker in person like US Bella did. Just. I shared with you earlier that all it takes to please Ms. Parker is a good foot rub and that she's as obsessive about moisturiser as us (good to know), now she's opening up about that gorgeous mane of her and trying to tell us that she's bad at makeup!

From big and blonde to bobbed and brown, SJP isn't afraid to mix up her style (she even had red hair in the early '90s) but what matters most to her is healthy hair. I think I love her even more.

Tell us about your hair: I'm lucky enough to get to work with Serge Normant (HUGE star in hairdressing land) and he and I have the mutual objective of trying to keep my hair as healthy as possible — which is hard given my particular line of work, when they want to just beat it up every day and put heat on it and blow-dry it. And I like to try colour and things like that, so it's hard to do. I am not complaining because it's part of what I've chosen to do that I love. Keep reading . . .I try to take care of it and try not to do anything to it when I'm not working. I try not to colour it if I don't have to. I have a lot of brothers and sisters and my three sisters have the healthiest, most beautiful hair: never been touched, dyed, [or] tortured the way I torture mine. And their ponytails are as thick as a horse's.

How are you with makeup? I am, I confess, very bad at makeup. I don’t wear any in my real life — in my personal life. There’s no time to do it and I’m not good at it. I can cover a zit and I can put mascara on. I can put the eyeliner inside my eyeball but that’s basically it. Honestly.
