Lily Collins Hair Secrets Q+A

Introducing Lily Collins for Living Proof has been one of the most exciting moments for Lp. as a brand. The storied actor, who appeared in films such as The Blind Side and Rules Don’t Apply, is now breaking streaming records with her portrayal of Emily in Netflix’s Emmy-nominated original series, Emily in Paris—but not without cementing her status as a beauty icon first. As someone both transformational and fearless, Lily Collins is influencing a generation both on and off the screen. We wanted to learn a bit more about Lily, so we sat down with her to discuss her (incredible!) hair, her must-have product, and what makes her smile the most.

What’s the craziest hair trend you’ve tried?

The craziest hair trend I’ve ever tried was when I chopped all my hair off into a pixie cut. Not for a movie, just because.

Hair mask or dry shampoo?

Dry shampoo. (Pssst: Lily’s favorite? Perfect hair Day™ Advanced Clean Dry Shampoo.)

Which hairstyle makes you feel like yourself the most?

Weirdly, it’s this one—having bangs. It’s something that I wanted to do for so many years and never quite had the guts to. And then the second that I had it done, it felt like I had it forever. So natural! So I definitely have to go with this.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?

One thing I can’t live without in the morning would be my husband’s cappuccino that he makes me.

The last song you listened to?

“Gypsy” by Fleetwood Mac. I love that song and could listen to it on repeat all day, every day.

Favorite way to unwind?

A hot cup of tea, a hot bath, and probably binge some reality TV—preferably all at once!

What makes you smile the most?

Our dog Redford is pretty cute and makes us smile quite a bit. So, I’d probably have to say Redford…and my husband.
