Since beginning her illustrious film career, Anne Hathaway has been synonymous with the makeover. Whether it was her transformation from frizzy haired Mia Thermopolis to the oh-so-chic Princess of Genovia in The Princess Diaries or her emotional on-screen crop as Fantine in Les Misérables, Hathaway’s hair has been a prevalent plot point in her work.
In celebration of the star’s 32nd birthday on November 12th, we’ve found her 10 most definitive styles, which provide an infinite wealth of stylistic options for your clients.
1. Oscar Oscar
Anne’s role in Les Mis earned her two things: an Academy Award and this pixie cut. The latter almost made more headlines in this elegant look for the 2012 Oscars.
2. Cool, Calm and Classic
Anne proved she can still pull off her trademark chic aesthetic with a shorter cut, pairing her new style with a black staple dress and bold red lips in a modern take on old school glamour.
3. Hair highlight
This youthful look is comprised of a 90s style fringe, soft curls and multi-toned brunette colouring, retro elements that could also be very trendy today.
4. Everyday sophistication
This short style could be a client favourite, styled dead straight and with just enough length to remain girlish but classy.
5. Princess Mia
This elegant chignon, paired with glamorous crystal jewellery and Anne’s trademark red, is red carpet sophistication at its finest.
6. The Wob
Softening the bob with fresh makeup and tousled, wavy locks, Anne adds a particular vibrance to short hair.
7. Going for gold
Anne’s trademark long locks are styled to their natural best, enhanced by golden highlights that bring out her brown eyes.
A side part and cascading curls are balanced by chunky jewellery and bold makeup, diversifying Anne’s simple taste with an asymmetrical twist.
9. Blonde Ambition
Remember when Anne swapped her chestnut locks for blonde? This was a massive departure from her brunette aesthetic, and shows your clients that a colour switch is possible no matter how attached you feel to your original hue.
10. Natural beauty
This lustrous, long, brunette hair look and natural makeup exudes an effortless sophistication only Anne can muster.
As Anne has constantly shown us, makeovers are a must. Encourage your clients to be brave with their stylistic choice, whether it’s a daring cut, diverse styling or a radical colour departure.
