Even though critics are mixed about the film and many fans have expressed a growing dislike of Tom Cruise because of all the accumulation of all of brand destroying sins, the vast majority of critics and fans continue to rave about Cameron's performance in the flick.

Indeed, the beautiful blonde is still a golden girl on the screen and in the eyes of fans and the media.

Cameron's No Slouch In Beauty Department

Of course Cameron's no slouch in the hair, beauty and fashion worlds either. Plus she has that buff body that was recently featured in Life And Style Magazine with a quote from her trainer Teddy Bass.

Teddy reported that Cameron's killer bikini, showcased in Knight and Day, is the result of focused sculpting.

Cameron does combination exercises which blast several muscle groups at the same time.

Like doing shoulder presses while doing squats. Ouch! That's gotta hurt, but the results are undeniable if you've seen Cam on the beach with Tom in the film.

Cameron's Hair History

The native Californian was born August 30, 1972. Her radiant beauty has been on display since she was in her teens.

The high school cheerleader was just 16 when she signed with Elite Model Management and began her fashion modeling career which took her around the world.

She worked for a dizzying array of major companies and designers including Calvin Klein and Levi's.

The seasoned young model was featured on the cover of the July 1990 issue of Seventeen magazine.

From there she started acting and broke out in films in the 1990s including The Mask, My Best Friend's Wedding, There's Something About Mary and eventually Vanilla Sky with her current leading man Tom Cruise.

Cameron shot to superstar status when she appeared in Charlie's Angels and movies such as Being John Malkovich and Gangs of New York which prompted Golden Globe nominations for her performances.

Cameron's Hair Style Trends

Cameron is famous for her effortless tousled hairstyles, fashions and beauty.

Although she has spent the bulk of her professional career as a blonde, she had taken a few hair color detours into the world of brunettes.

Over the course of her modeling and acting career she has worked with some of the biggest celebrity hairdressers in the world both on and off film sets.

In 2009 she was spotted with a head full of foils at Bryon and Stacey Salon in Beverly Hills.

For many of her films and photo shoots including Charlies Angels: Full Throttle, 50 First Dates, In Her Shoes, The Holiday, What Happens In Vegas and My Sister's Keeper she has worked with hairstylist Lona Vigi

Lona has reported Cameron likes her hair styled, but not too much. As a result, Lona works with Cam's natural texture, keeping it soft and easy. As far as her most prized beauty tool, the blonde beauty loves smudgy eyeliner to make her blue eyes totally pop.

Cameron's Hairstyles On Knight and Day

Cameron's hair on Knight and Day mirrors her off-screen natural hairstyles.

When she first meets Tom at the beginning of the movie her hair is soft, natural and tousled. Thinking they might have a connection, she uses her fingers to tousle and fluff her hair in the bathroom of the plane's bathroom they're flying on.

Little does Cam know but while she finger combing her hair in the tiny restroom, Tom is killing everyone on the plane. That gives new meaning to killer hairstyles.

Later when Cameron is the Maid of Honor in her sister's wedding she looks adorable in a buttercup yellow dress with her hair worn soft and loose.

To be honest, I don't think I've ever seen Cameron in any hairstyle - onscreen or off - which wasn't gorgeous, even when she was drugged by Tom and wound up on a dangerous deserted island.

Hairstyles On Charlies Angels

Cameron's famous character on Charlie's Angels was not stranded on an island with a range of villains flying by and shooting at her.

Similar to Knight and Day, Cameron's character wore her hair tousled in a range of hairstyle.

Cameron sometimes utilizes hair accessories including headbands, hair clips and an array of plain and decorative bobby pins to pull the front of her hair up and off her face.

Hair Secrets:

From most angles Cameron appears to have a classically square face with a strong jawline.

Some beauty and hair experts classify Cameron as having a round face shape but as she ages it definitely appears to be square.

Although she wore her hair shorter during her early acting career Cameron now wisely wears her tresses chin length of longer which softens her jaw line and square face shape.

She looks great either with bone straight or her natural textured barely-there waves.

The biggest secret to Cameron's well groomed silky blonde locks are regular deep conditioning treatments combined with regular trims to keep ends in tip top shape.

Although her natural hair color is blonde, she does have it regularly highlighted which can cause strands to become dry when not properly moisturized.

Quick Hairstyling Tips:

Cameron's tousled barely-there wavy hairstyle is ideal for anyone with shoulder length or longer tresses which are medium in thickness with some natural waves or bend.

Her hairstyle is best achieved on freshly cleansed hair properly prepped with styling products to give the hair appropriate workability.

Follow the styling tips below:

1. Cleanse hair with products designed specifically for your hair's type, texture, condition and/or special needs such as colored hair or to add volume. Add rinse-out conditioner and final cold water rinse.

2. Towel blot. Rake leave-in conditioning and appropriate styling cocktail through strands with wide tooth comb and/or fingers.

Work styling cocktail through strands starting at the hairline and working down through the ends. Apply volume enhancing spray to roots for lots of lift.

Note: If your hair is prone to frizzing apply a defrisant product or mix with your other styling products. Many celebrities are big fans of Phytodefrisant.

3. Dry with a large boar bristle round brush and blow dryer with concentrator attachment. If you prefer to create tousled separation rather than sleek volume use a long finger diffuser instead to amp up waves along edges.

4. Add lots of volume by flipping head upside down while drying. Blow dry until tresses are dry throughout the base, but still damp on the ends.

Flip head back to finish ends. Use a 2-inch round boar bristle brush. Turn hair slightly under at the ends. Blow hair back at temples. Direct strands away from the face briefly to create additional lift and shape.

4. Once hair is 100% dry if you want more defined waves, separate your tresses into 2" sections and curl with large barrel curling iron. After curling each section, roll into large curl with your fingers and pin to the scalp to cool.

5. After entire head is curled, pinned and cooled, unpin all the curls and tousle lightly with your fingers.

6. Finish styling process with light holding spray. Swipe with light shine serum to capture random fly-a-ways and add bouncy shimmer.

The key to the sexy glamour of Cameron's hair is lush root volume, shimmering shine and loose waves throughout the edges. Avoid too much product or styling to keep hair soft.

Hairstyling Notes & Options

To add more volume after hair is completely dry separate hair into 2-inch sections. Spray base of hair with volumizing and/or finishing spray.

Roll target sections towards back of head on large self adhesive rollers. Or roll entire head in 2-inch sections down the middle of the head all the way to the nape of the neck.

Allow rollers to set for a minimum of 30-45 minutes. Remove rollers. Use fingers to shake strands free. Avoid disturbing new texture with comb or brush.

Slightly back comb throughout crown and adjacent to hairline to add more volume. Finish with mist of light finishing spray.

You can easily achieve Cameron's classy tousled wavy style which combines smoothly blown out hair with lush volume built throughout the top and crown.

Hot irons are utilized along the perimeter to give Cameron's ends wavy curves and bend.

For hair which is naturally bone straight, hot rollers or a wet set with adhesive rollers dried under a hood unit will create more defined texture along the edges.
