She may be one of the most notable women in Hollywood, but that doesn’t stop Helen Mirren from cutting her own hair!
The 73-year-old recently appeared on the British daytime talk show This Morning, and dropped quite the bombshell on its viewers. “I do often cut my own hair,” she shared, adding that she doesn’t always head to the salon when she needs a quick trim.
“I said to my brilliant hair guy here, Stefan, ‘The cut I have right now, Stefan, is something that I did with the kitchen scissors about a week ago in my kitchen,” the actress revealed. “So you know, maybe you could clean it up a bit for me?’ So yes, I do cut my own hair.”
The Oscar winner has never been afraid to share some of her beauty secrets — In April 2018, the Red star admitted to getting eyebrow tattoos. “I was fed up of my brows barely being there and when one of my girlfriends got it done, I thought that they looked great,” the A-lister told Daily Mail. “They’re very lightly and delicately done — but it means that when I get up in the morning and I have no make-up on, at least I have eyebrows. It’s made a huge difference.”
The star recently turned heads when she appeared at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2018 with a stylish pink hairstyle — and we’re quite certain she did not do this herself. Helen also wore a champagne gold colored gown, matched with some diamond pendant earrings. Stunning!
While Helen is quite known for looking great for her age, she has revealed that she was not a fan of being a certain type of sexy when she was in her twenties. “It was the time of [model] Twiggy, and I did not look like a twig. My cheeks were too fat, legs were too short, breasts too big,” she told Allure. “You had to be thin and have a cigarette and only wear black. And I just never fit into that look,” she added.
We think Helen looks great!
