Carey Mulligan’s hair: coming soon

An Oscar nomination was only the start to a whirlwind year for Carey. While her characters change, so does her hair. She’s worn more dos in one year than some stars wear in 10! In “An Education” her long hair ranged from short and messy to up and sophisticated. For the Academy Awards, the unknown actress chopped off her hair and dyed it platinum. Since then it’s gone red and back to a more normal blond and she’s gotten incredible versatility just by going a little bit longer. Check back to get the details on her hot, new dos!

Carey Mulligan’s hair: an education in style

Carey Mulligan barely resembles the young schoolgirl she played in An Education. Her transformation started right the Oscars 2010. That night Carey stood out for two reasons: her leading actress nomination and her barely-there blond haircut (below right). As you can see, the sudden star wasn’t content to stay with the pixie even though it was adorable! She has grown her hair out a tad, but it looks quite different. With that little bit of extra length, Ms. Mulligan can wear her hair windswept, braided to one side, conservative, sexy, sophisticated… you get the idea! 

It’s hard to believe that Carey in a mop top (right) is the same person as Carey the Academy Award nominee. Oscar night the cameras were drawn to Carey, and that drew in the fans. All of the attention hasn’t gone to her head. She seems like a real-life 20-something who likes to experiment with her look. At the same time, she brings to mind celebs who thrive on change (sort of like Madonna and Lady Gaga but more like Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, etc).

Even when her hair was short and dark red, Carey found ways to mix it up. One night, she used a dab of product and brushed her hair to one side. Another evening, she applied something stronger, separated the bangs and put on a headband. Anyone who doesn’t know better would think that you can’t get any versatility from a short cut. But you know better and Carey proves it!
