Dame Helen Mirren often cuts her own hair before red carpet events because she doesn't like going to the hairdressers.
Dame Helen Mirren cuts her own hair.
The award-winning 68-year-old actress hates sitting in the hairdresser's chair for hours on end and prefers to give her locks a quick snip with her kitchen scissors before a big event instead.
She told the August issue of Redbook magazine: ''I can't handle going to the hairdresser every six weeks, so I only go about once a year. In between, I get out the scissors and do something, usually rather disastrously. Sometimes I'll even chop my hair the morning of a big red carpet event.''
'The Queen' star's go-to beauty look is red lips with a pared down base because she finds she can no longer pull off heavy make-up.
Helen said: ''I wear make-up every day. I love putting it on, and I get really into it: a little bit of this here, and little bit of that there. But then I stand back and look into the mirror and it's awful!
''So I take it all off because I've gotten too anal about it. It's absolutely true that as you get older, you have to wear less and less make-up.
''You can get away with naked eyes if you've got red lips. Or red lips and sunglasses!''
The British icon has always envied French women's inherent sense of style and claims their perfectly-groomed looks leave her feeling ''inferior''.
She added: ''As a Brit, we've always looked to the French and [wondered], 'Why do they never look untidy?' We've got a terrific inferiority complex when it comes to them.''
