Want Your Hair To Dry Straight? Try Julianne Moore’s “Clever Hack”

Want Your Hair To Dry Straight? Try Julianne Moore’s “Clever Hack”

There’s a common (and absurd) misconception that women who reach a certain age are better suited to short hairstyles. And though we’ve dismissed this notion many times, no one does it better than Julianne Moore. Just by existing, her thick and lustrous head of hair puts to bed any doubts people may have on whether your age should limit your hair length or style. 

So how does she keep her hair looking this good? Well, up until now the only intel we’ve had has been ‘good genetics’. Classic. However, as the face of the latest Hourglass “We Glow” campaign (alongside her youngest daughter, Liv Freundlich), Julianne has revealed some of her greatest beauty tips (and faux pas).

And there’s one hair-related recommendation that’s really caught our attention. The Still Alice actor has shared her clever two-step routine for ensuring that her hair dries straight after a wash.


Speaking to The Sunday Times the actress revealed that though her hair is naturally wavy and she’s “terrible at blow-drying [it]”, she’s had to get savvy if she wants to keep it from going frizzy.

“I have a clever hack to make my hair dry straight,” she said.  “I’ll wash my hair, put in hair oil and tie it back really tightly so the crown is tight.”

The result? “It will dry flat”. Some would say it sounds very straightforward (sorry, we had to).
