Jennifer Morrison often styles her own hair

Jennifer Morrison did her own hair for the Monte Carlo Television Awards.

The 35-year-old actress is having the time of her life, with recent roles in Once Upon a Time and How I Met Your Mother. But rather than get an expert involved when she headed to the Monte Carlo Television Festival earlier this month, she decided to get hands-on.

"I did my own hair all week," she opened up to People magazine. "I'm always careful to choose a hairstyle that doesn't compete with the dress and makes sense for the elements. Monte Carlo was exceptionally hot, so I kept my hair off my neck as much as possible."

Among Jennifer's hairstyles was a cute up-do with a braid wrapped around the front like a headband. She also rocked a ballerina bun, wavy ponytail and a loose 'do throughout the event.

The blonde star works with stylist Jen Rade to get her looks just right. She picked a gorgeous Georges Hobeika gown in pastel green to go with the plaited hairstyle.

"The dress always comes before the hair," the stylist said. "But Jen came to her fitting in a braid and it looked great!"

Jennifer also wore a pastel pink dress by Georges to cocktails at the Palais Princier during the festival. She loved the whimsical flower detail on the gown.

"This felt like the perfect dress to wear to a palace," she smiled.

Her stylist added that she's a "master packer" and reused her Stuart Weitzman sandals to allow more room for other things in her suitcase.
