Alice Eve talks summer hair

Alice Eve named a "halo braid" as the perfect summer hairstyle.

The British actress has been tapped as the face of celebrity stylist Charles Worthington's Salon at Home haircare range.

Alice discussed her favourite hairstyles and named her top tips for summer beauty this year.

"Just keep it fresh. I don't wear a lot of make-up, but I think a good way to pick up your look when you're not feeling your best, is to do a bright lip - and I think the halo braid is perfect for summer," Alice told UK magazine Company. "Also, I like putting a bit of colour in the corner of my eyes to make them pop. Probably my eyes [are my favourite part of myself]. I've got a blue and a green one and they make me 'me'."

A halo braid is a plait which stretches across the top of the head and has been popular with the celebrity elite recently, with Scarlett Johansson, Freida Pinto and Sienna Miller all rocking the look.

The Star Trek actress plays Dr. Carol Marcus in the latest instalment of the sci-fi franchise. Alice resides in Los Angeles nowadays, after moving to the US as her career took off in film. Although she calls LA home, she misses the London fashion scene.

"In LA, outfits are pretty relaxed but still look put together," she explained. "London seems the kind of place where you can invent your own style. London style is a bit more quirky and fun than it is in LA."

The 31-year-old confessed she has a weakness for shoe shopping. It is designer footwear that the star is most likely to splurge her cash on.

"Shoes!" she exclaimed. "There's nothing quite like a well-made pair of shoes, like Louboutins or Charlotte Olympia's."
