Sarah Jessica Parker sleeps with damp hair for perfect waves

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has mastered the technique for the perfect smoky eye.

Sarah Jessica Parker swears the trick to getting her perfect waves is going to bed with damp hair.

The former Sex and the City actress and style icon has a reputation for being able to pull off just about any fashion trend imaginable, including over-the-top dresses and voluminous hairstyles.

And when it comes to her signature wavy tresses, Sarah insists she doesn’t rely on any products or styling tools, but simply goes to be with wet hair.

“It’s funny that everyone thinks my hair is really curly because it’s actually just wave. I think it’s because back in the ‘80s and ‘90s, everyone used diffusers,” she told U.K. InStyle magazine. “Now, I shower at night and sleep on it wet – it creates these flat waves that misbehave and eventually turn into massive dreads. They take about 10-20 minutes to get out. It’s like a rat’s nest but I love it.”

When it comes to her make-up regime, the 51-year-old keeps it simple too.

Avoiding foundation and blush, Sarah shares that she tends to focus on a smoky eye as that is the main technique she’s been able to master.

“I do a smoky eye every day. I don’t know how to blow-dry my hair or do the rest of my make-up, but I can do a smoky eye. I use Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Jungle. I put it on the inner rims of my upper and lower lids, then blend it our really quickly. It’s an exquisite colour that suits everyone,” she explained.

And the Divorce star reveals that when it comes to maintaining her slim physique, she doesn’t need to hit the gym, because running around after her three children keeps her trim.

But she does admit to giving in to a crazy fitness trend on the odd occasion.

“I tried trapeze yoga with the aerial silks, but only once! It made me nauseous – being upside down just doesn’t feel right,” she laughed.
