Cynthia Nixon Hair Secrets - Sex And The City Hair


Cynthia Nixon As Miranda Hobbs Sex And The City Movie 2008

Although Cynthia Nixon is best known as Miranda Hobbs on Sex and the City (SATC) she has had a very rich and successful acting career separate from the SATC franchise, which includes the series as well as the recent movie.

You might be surprised to discover that Cynthia who plays a fiery redhead in SATC is actually a natural blonde in real life. Her hair was dyed red for her role as Miranda. Indeed, it suits her well.

In one scene Miranda wears a gorgeous geometric print Maggie London dress, gold belt and stunning Gucci pumps. She wears her hair with lots of texture on the ends.

Miranda's trademark red strands were still in beautiful view. Like the other three SATC women she has changed up both her fashion and hair style.

The workaholic attorney has dumped the conservative business suits for softer and more elegant dresses, skirts and gowns. Her red hair was softened with carefully placed highlights which brightened her face.

She shows off her short to medium length sassy hairstyles with big, bold hoop and circular shaped earrings in gold and various metallic shapes that punch up her hair color.

Besides turning up the wow factor with her fashions and accessories, her hair was worn in a series of short to medium bobs and chops with lots of volume, movement and natural texture.

Her hair, as well as her overall style, was sophisticated with a slight edge and sexiness that was never present in the original series.

When Miranda appeared in an Alberta Ferretti dress with Luciana Padovan heels her hair was coiffed to pump up lots of texture around the perimeter.

Her medium length choppy bob was cut on an angle so that the style had a perfect flow from the front of her chin towards the back.

The hair had an element of movement and swing that was sexy and in perfect harmony with the Ferretti dress.

Louise From St. Louis Hairstyles - Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson Sex And The City Movie 2008

Jennifer Hudson was a newcomer to the SATC franchise. However, she was fabulous in the part of Carrie Bradshaw's personal assistant. I would kill for someone so organized and together.

Jennifer wore her hair very naturally in curls that were perfectly shaped and trimmed to form lovely ringlets. Her hairstyle worked perfectly with the role she played in the movie and she was a great addition to the original cast.


As always the Sex And The City Girls don't disappoint with it comes to their hairstyles and fashions.

The movie picks up some years after the HBO series ended and the hair and fashion of the four key characters - Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda - have evolved in such a manner as to be perfectly in tune with the characters they play in the film.

No matter what the critics say, whether they love the movie or not, if you loved the original series you will definitely love the movie. Trust me, you've have a fabulous fashion and hairstyle feast.
