Dita Von Teese Dyes Her Own Hair, Wears Minimal Daily Makeup


She may look high maintenance due to her always perfectly polished vintage inspired beauty look, but Dita Von Teese insists it doesn’t take as much effort as you might think. The model beauty doesn’t even like to visit the hair salon and says she prefers to dye her hair herself. She believes anyone can figure out how to look after themselves without professional help if they practice enough. She commented:

”I can’t stand having my hair done in a salon – I like to dye it myself. You can do pretty much any beauty look as well as a professional if you devote the time to learning how. I use Garnier Nutrisse in a blue-black shade. My hair was originally blonde. In the early ’90s I dyed it red, burgundy and finally black. My boyfriend at the time got a little upset, but I felt people listened to me more.”

Dita even says her daily makeup routine is very minimal, and often she just quickly applies some powder and mascara, as well as her signature red lips. If she isn’t going out, she’ll opt to go makeup free:

‘I don’t wear a lot of make-up day-to-day, just a sweep of powder and maybe some mascara. I live in sunglasses and red lipstick – that’s my quick look – but if I’m not leaving the house, I’ll have a no-make-up day.”

The famous face also revealed that she once almost had a star tattooed on her face but changed it to a simple beauty spot in the end:

”I had a beauty spot tattooed on when I was 20. I originally wanted a little star but the guy in the tattoo shop talked me out of it.”
