Julianne Moore’s hair help

Julianne Moore says true beauty comes from within.

The 53-year-old actress is blessed with naturally auburn locks but is happy to switch things up for roles. She’s even fine with dramatic changes, as they help her get to grips with the parts she’s playing.

"I do a lot based on my hair. You have to find a physical way in [to a character] because there is so much that people are communicating about themselves, physically. Everything they wear, the way they do their make-up and their hair; all of these are signifiers," she smiled to glow magazine.

"When David [Cronenberg] and I were working on [Maps to the Stars], I was like, ‘She is not going to have red hair! A girl like this has got to be a blonde.’ So I dyed my hair blonde. [For movie Still Alice] I cut my hair because I didn’t feel like this type of person would have really long hair, which I had at the time, because she’s a college professor."

Along with her warm tresses, Julianne is recognisable for her porcelain skin and freckles, which have been passed down to her son Caleb and daughter Liv. To help youngsters with a similar look feel comfortable in their own skin, the star penned children's book Freckleface Strawberry.

“One of the most important things I tell my children is that content matters. Who you are, what you think, who you are going to become, how you behave, all of those things are what add up to being a valuable person. The outside is great, obviously, but it all really does come from within," Julianne explained.

Her striking appearance hasn't gone unnoticed, as she's landed beauty campaigns with the likes of L’Oréal Paris. Julianne is thrilled to be a part of such an iconic brand.

“It’s a company that speaks to women all over the world, all different ages and cultures," she gushed. "There’s an inclusiveness that I really admire. It’s a company that says everyone is worth time and involvement and investment. It’s a really great ethos.”
