Marcia Cross's Red Hair
Thinking back to her days as crazy Kimberly on Melrose Place, Marcia Cross had a shaved head and a terrible scar. Now, as buttoned-up Bree on Desperate Housewives, her long hair is back, as is a touch of the crazy we missed. We wouldn't want to be subjected to her perfectionism, but we do love watching her fiery temper.
Her signature shade of red is stand-out gorgeous a color most of us aren't lucky enough to have naturally. Coloring your hair can be a woman's right of passage. Teenagers dye for rebellious streaks of blue and orange, graduating to natural highlights and finally to gray-covering shades. If there's one thing we know about colored hair, it's how easily it can break. If you want to keep your hair looking healthy and shiny, it's all in the wrist.
How you hold your blow-dryer could mean the difference between frizzy and fabulous. For maximum shine, point the nozzle down toward the floor while you dry. This forces the hair shaft to dry flat, leaving your locks looking their glossiest.
