Movies such as Four Weddings and a Funeral and Groundhog Day have made Andie McDowell a famous name. But as she worked her way up the cast list in Hollywood, she displayed an increasingly-famous mane. McDowell appeared in ads for a wide range of fashion designers, usually displaying medium-to-long hair which frequently spotlighted natural curls.
Natural thickness helps accentuate McDowell's styles, even when she occasionally blow-dries her hair straight for special events or ad campaigns. The straighter looks allow for plenty of bounce, yet it's a rare moment when her hair flies so far out of line that it lands in her eyes. So it's no wonder People magazine has put McDowell on its "50 Most Beautiful" list several times.
L'Oreal's executives knew great hair when they saw it, as they made McDowell a familiar face in commercials and print. Yet it seems the ads have placed more emphasis on her brunette color as the other characteristics of her styles. Perhaps that's because McDowell has been blessed with tremendous hair genetics -- and with proper care, Hair Fans dream of her keeping tremendous tresses for a lifetime.
