Naomi Watts became the new face of Pantene's Flat to Volume collection in the US last month and earlier this week she celebrated the appointment with a party in New York, which saw her speak about her latest honour and also introduce a short film about 's Beautiful Lengths program, which encourages women and men to chop off and donate their locks to make wigs for cancer patients. We chatted to Naomi all about her beauty routine and her can't-live-without products. Plus check out behind-the-scenes snaps from her Pantene shoot!
On the one beauty product she can't live without: "I have to wear mascara or I have my eyelashes tinted because my eyelashes are completely blonde. And my eyes just disappear if they're not framed well."
On her day-to-day hair routine: "It's not very much. I don't have the time, skill, or interest, really. Even before having kids but now it's really shrunk down to a bare minimum. That's why I expect a lot out of my shampoo and conditioner. But I will, if I'm doing it myself, use the triple action mousse. And then if I'm going to work and I know that I'm going to get hot irons all over the place then I'll use a little bit of the heat protector and that helps."
Keep reading . . .On picking up hair tips from working with pros for years: "You would think so, right? But I just have never done my own hair. I can't even blow-dry it. I'm a ponytail kind of girl. The best one for me is just the scrunch. Because I actually don't mind the look of, not unruly, but beachy looking hair, slightly undone. I don't like big bouncy hair."
On how she gets ready for a night out: "On my own time, I'm never wearing foundation. Even at night I'll just put lipstick and mascara and rouge and call it a night."
On how she came to work with Pantene: "I just got a call saying they were thinking about me and I was excited. I just thought, 'Wow, I didn't ever think I had good hair so why would they choose me?' And I think that's the whole point is that everyone should be able to have good hair. If it's well-treated, you too can have the volume and shine and I've got fine hair. So the product line that's specific for my hair type works very well with it. [You have to] stay consistent; it's not a magic potion that one uses and then overnight will have extremely different hair. It's a commitment. It's a process and I started using the products about a month ago and I have to say my hair has grown more because I'm treating it well."
