In the case of Vanessa Marcil, the Las Vegas series imitates real life. Vanessa, famous for her work on General Hospital and 90210, comes from the school of life's hard knocks. She makes no bones about the fact that she is half Mexican and half European.

Her character Sam Marquez on Las Vegas has a similar background which helps define her hard edged personality.

Celebrity hairdresser Nanci Cascio, who has worked on many film sets over the years, including Las Vegas, remarked that Vanessa "has really great dark locks that are lush and thick".

In keeping with her sultry man-eating character for Las Vegas, Vanessa’s hairstyles are constantly changing from long, layered wavy locks that “pop” with heavily applied multi-dimensional highlighted hues in soft shades of caramel and rich blonde to dark chocolate with minimal highlights.

She mixes up a variety of textures appearing with silky straight strands, softly curled cascades and flirty ponytails.

Molly - Silky Long Blonde Locks

Her hair, which morphs back and forth between light copper blonde and darker burgundy shades, is usually styled in soft, ultra feminine texturized looks that would be in keeping with for her exciting day job as a special events planner for a world class casino.

Sometimes Nikki as Mary will mix it up by wearing flirty ponytails and soft messy twists. Most of her hairstyles are built around a center zig zaged part with side swept bangs.

For evening events her tresses are transformed into more seductive evening styles built around cascading waves and curls ideal for cavorting with her on-again, off-again main man, Danny.
