ScarJo: I am not my hair

Scarlett Johansson wouldn't dye her hair bright red again.

The 30-year-old actress has sported many different hair hues over the years and is currently rocking a partly-shaved look. She doesn't understand people who don't give new looks a go, insisting experimenting is part of the fun.

"I'm not precious about my hair - it'll always grow back. I had a fashion mullet when I was 19. It was a cross between David Bowie and Meryl Streep in Silkwood. I was into it. Everyone else; not so much. But the one thing I probably won't do, is dye it fiery red again anytime soon. It's so hard to maintain and impossible to get out," she told British magazine InStyle.

Scarlett and her husband Romain Dauriac welcomed their daughter Rose last year and there was speculation that motherhood was one of the reasons for her new look. The actress has rubbished that, insisting there was a more tedious explanation.

"Not true. No other inspiration besides being sick of pulling it back into a ponytail! My hair was super long from wearing it under wigs for so many films in a row. It was just time to cut it off," she said.

The star has taken parenthood completely in her stride. It hasn't changed her beauty routine much at all, in part because she's never been a high maintenance kind of girl.

"Not really," she replied, when quizzed if her regime had altered. "I have a very quick morning routine of showering, moisturising and throwing on a bit of concealer. If I'm going to work, I get up an hour earlier to hit the gym."
