uring a recent interview with Allure
, actress Bella Thorne
opened up on all things beauty and hair, including that she isn’t a natural redhead!
“A lot of people don’t know I’m not actually a redhead.” Bella said, “I’m a blonde. I dyed it for Big Love. It started off more of a deep red, and Disney was like, ‘Why don’t we take Bella all the way to blonde again?’ I don’t know why, but I had a breakdown and so overreacted. I wanted to go back to red.”
While she loves sticking with her red hair color, Bella also likes switching up her hairstyles when it comes to the red carpet. The 17-year-old star was even spotted sporting a cool braided ‘do earlier this year while attending New York Fashion Week.
Bella revealed that for fashion week, her hair was done by: “My hairstylist Castillo. He does my hair for everything. It’s all cornrowed and then braided. He actually whipped it up really fast. I was worried about the look photographing harshly, but I wanted to go very different for Jeremy Scott—I usually have pretty crazy updos. We were actually going to do purple and green stripes through it, but then we couldn’t, because it was going to take too long.”
As for keeping her skin in tip-top shape for the red carpet, Bella spilled her everyday beauty routine:
“I get up. I wash my face. I use the Pink Grapefruit Neutrogena wash, and then I use a daily pore tightener. I really love the Neutrogena Smooth Color Stick in Very Berry. It’s natural, moisturizing, and it just goes on really light. I also love Aquaphor. That’s the best way to go. Then I either put my hair up in a ponytail or leave it down in its natural wave, which is pretty crimpy. And I’m in jeans and a T-shirt.”

The actress also revealed that things aren’t always smooth-sailing with her skin when it comes to some of the roles she takes on.
“I was working on the set of Amityville, and they were doing gashes on my face, and they were using this sugar and detergent blood, and I’m covered. They’re on my cheeks, my forehead, there’s one on my chin, above my lip, on my eyebrow, all over my whole face. It’s all kinds of ratchet.” She said.
“And it’s just completely freaked out my skin. I had thousands of bumps. And they’re scrubbing it off with oil and alcohol, so it’s like the worst thing you could do for your skin. I had to go see Dr. Lancer, so I’m finally getting my skin back to normal. But those gashes do look realistic. It’s so cool. I actually love doing those scenes.”
