Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Shares Her Biggest Beauty Disaster


British model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley may be a flawless beauty these days, but she reveals that she has made a few beauty blunders in the past – including a bad hair dye job when she was 14. The top model explains that the hair dye didn’t turn out as she expected and at the time she was devastated:

”As for beauty disasters, when I was about 14 I had pestered and pestered my mum to get a box of hair dye with brush-on highlights, and I ended up with two massive peroxide streaks, like a badger. I remember crumbling on to the bathroom floor screaming at my mother, ‘You ruined my life!’ and sobbing my eyes out.”

Rosie adds that she dyed over the bad hair colour and it ended up becoming extra damaged, so she would refuse to be photographed for an entire year until her hair started to look better:

”At 14, it seemed like the worst thing that could possibly happen to you. I think we bought about 10 boxes of hair dye to try and colour it back and it just ended up a kind of murky red and really damaged. There are no photographs of me for that whole year: my dad could never find photographs of me turning 14 to 15. I think I refused to have any taken.”

Now extremely in tune with all things beauty, Rosie says she always takes care of her skin because she believes it’s important to have clear skin before makeup is even applied. She also thinks people don’t understand how important it is to drink water and stay hydrated, and she thinks the benefits are numerous:

”Thankfully now I like to keep my hair looking natural and am really diligent with my skincare. It’s the most important thing, it’s my canvas for the make-up artists I work with, so that comes first. It’s not something that comes really easily for me. I drink so much water you wouldn’t believe and find that it has so many benefits, not only for my skin but for general wellbeing, dealing with jet-lag and weight loss. Water is the key to so much. I believe many of the issues we have with our bodies are down to dehydration.”
