Andie MacDowell has naturally long, curly hair, which you might not know if you only know her from her hair color commercials, in which she wears that amazing chestnut hair straight, with perfect waves. But MacDowell has wonderful curly hair, and she usually wears it natural. To keep it in perfect shape, she's reportedly uses L'Oreal's EverPure Sulfate Free Color Care Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner (compare prices online here) and EverSleek Sulfate Free Humidity Defying Leave-In Crème (compare prices online here) and like many women with curly hair, she wears her hair long to weigh down the curls.

When asked if she feels pressure to hide her age (MacDowell was born in 1958), she was honest to Allure Magazine, "Yes, but it's unrealistic. You can look great for your age, but you're still gonna age. In this business people don't talk about much else but aging." That said, in other interviews the actress (who's in her 50s) admits she feels sexier now than she did when younger because she doesn't worry what others think.
