Chloë Sevigny: Mom loves my style

Chloë Sevigny is glad her mother approved of her "radical" haircuts when she was younger.

The 37-year-old actress is famed for her quirky sense of style and regularly experiments with her look.

Chloë admits that her beauty choices aren't to everyone's liking, but appreciates when she gets the seal of approval from her mother.

"When I was a teenager, I was really into hair; I dyed it different colours and had loads of haircuts. I shaved my head when I was 17 - it was pretty radical! My mother loved it, though: she said, 'You can finally see your face and you're so beautiful!'" she explained.

Although Chloë prefers dramatic hairstyles, the former model admits to toning down her beauty look.

"I'm more conservative with make-up. My everyday look is a bit of concealer with lots and lots of mascara," she said.

"If I'm feeling down in the dumps, or like I need a pop of colour, I'll put on MAC's Lipstick in Lady Danger. I discovered red lipstick when I did the Oscar season: Chanel sent me one and I realised how classic and glamorous it can be."

Chloë has recalled one particular time when her mom didn't approve of her look. The star was determined to get her hair chemically treated and loved her style regardless of what other people thought.

"I permed my hair 12 years ago, because I always wanted a perm, but my mother would never let me have one!" she exclaimed to InStyle magazine.

"I got a lot of stick, but I didn't care - I loved the curls. The growing out was the difficult part!"
