Christina Hendricks is famous for being able to tie her hair up so quickly.

The Mad Men actress has opted for a change from her usual red locks of late and is now sporting blonde hair. She is happy with the change, explaining she has always been one for experimenting with her locks. That's probably why she's been called on to help some of her pals out on the biggest days of the lives.

"I did a couple of my friends' hair for their weddings. I'm not sure why they asked me, but I take it as a compliment. I'm known for doing messy up-do really quickly on myself - my mom's always really impressed. I like putting my hair up, and wearing lots of headwraps and scarves for fun," she told British magazine InStyle.

It's not just hair that gets Christina's blood pumping; she's a big one for beauty products too. She can always be persuaded to splash out on something new if it looks pretty enough, which is handy as never a day goes by without her applying some product.

Even if she has nothing planned the 40-year-old picks up the cosmetics as they make her feel better about herself.

"Yes I'm such a girl - I love make-up and I love the packaging. When something comes out in a new tube, I'm totally going to buy it," she laughed.

"I started wearing make-up in high school. I always had a deep burgundy lip, liquid black eyeliner and white baby powder on my face to look a little more like Siouxsie Sioux. Nowadays, I put something on even if I'm just home alone. My mom and I were talking about it the other day; I've probably learnt it from her. I'll always use a bit of cream blush, if nothing else - it makes me feel like I've woken up and I'm ready for the day."
