Actress Amanda Seyfried describes her decision to chop her blonde locks into a sleek shorter style as being a "real moment".

Amanda Seyfried likes to keep her look natural, preferring a very low maintenance beauty regime.

The actress has opened up about her daily routine and claims that when she is not make appearances at glitzy red carpet events, she barely wears any make-up at all.

"If I'm going to meetings or seeing friends, I'll put on mascara and gloss, cover up pimples and go,” she told Britain’s InStyle magazine. "I love coconut oil, like Artisana Organics, because it's so natural. I'll use it pretty much everywhere, except for my hair. Sometimes I even wear it around my neck as a scent if the weather's really hot."

The Les Miserables star, who recently cut her famous natural blonde waist-length locks into a fashionable "lob" or long bob, said she was inspired to go for the chop as she “needed something fresh” and felt her hair was dwarfing her petite frame.

She described the haircut as a "real moment" and had around 12 inches (30 cm) cut off, which she plans to donate to Locks of Love, a charity which makes hairpieces for children who suffer from hair loss due to medical reasons. But while she would like to experiment with her hairstyle further, Amanda isn’t quite ready to try a fringe.

"You have to blow dry it (a fringe) every day. And I have two huge cowlicks," she laughed. "I'd probably wake up and part of it would be sticking up in the opposite direction. That's not something I want to deal with."

While the 30-year-old prefers to keep her look simple, for A-list events she turns to make-up artist Mary Greenwell, whom she shares with Australian actress Cate Blanchett. And Amanda reveals that Mary has some unconventional techniques for giving her a natural glow.

"She's the first person who grabbed my face and massaged the hell out of it," smiled Amanda, adding, "It really works."
