Kristin Landen Davis (also listed as Kristin Lee Davis) is a classic beauty known for her stunning long brunette tresses. The actress was born February 23 or February 24, 1965 depending on the source) and is most famous for playing the role of Charlotte York Goldenblatt on HBO's Sex and the City (SATC) series.
Fans of the SATC series are already becoming excited about the second SATC film which is due to be released on May 28, 2010. In fact, may critics believe SATC will be one of the most successful films of 2010.
Besides her role as Charlotte, Kristin is also famous, at least in some circles, for her obsession with Prada. The beautiful chocolate tressed actress is a huge fan of the Italian fashion house and always stocks up on their clothes and accessories. Anyone who is a fan of SATC knows that the four ladies were often styled in spectacular fashions and shoes.
Kristin, who is petite but understands what looks spectacular on her figure, told the media 'I have a stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, who I love very much and who helps me with important outfits. I am a Prada-holic, though. Whenever I'm in Manhattan, I can walk into Prada and buy 10 outfits. I especially love their bags.'
Kristin also admits she has to be careful with what skincare she uses because her peaches and cream skin is so sensitive.
She has told the press "I use Ahava skincare, which is natural line from Israel and is made from minerals for the Dead Sea. I have the most sensitive skin. If you just look at me wrong, I break out in blotches! So I have to be really careful with what I put on my face. I try and focus on being really healthy, too. I don't drink and I don't smoke, which helps."
The brunette actress who is the proper, polite and conservative voice of the four Sex and The City ladies has been expanding her horizons with roles in other films.
In 2009 she was again part of an ensemble cast in the film 'Couples Retreat' along with Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Faizon Love, Malin Ackerman, Kristin Bell, Kali Hawk and Jean Reno.
Kristin Davis Hairstyle 411
One thing is pretty clear, Kristin has rich long hair which she dresses up for Red Carpet events by changing up the texture from sleek and straight to undulating ripples of soft waves.
For her role as Charlotte she often wore her hair in an array of finished and sleek classic styled ponytails or chignons.
Hairstyle: Long Classic Wavy Hairstyle
Looking closely at Kristin's photo above it doesn't appear obvious she does not have add-on strands, but with the options available in today's add-on hair market it's often hard to tell. If I had to guess I might say there has not been hair added to increase Kristin's volume but only her celebrity hairdresser knows for sure.
Hairstyle Color: Warm chocolate brown base
Hairstyle Highlights/Lowlights: If you look closely you will see what appears to be a hint of caramel or lighter chestnut highlights with deep cabernet or burgundy lowlights which give Kristin's hair warmth, depth and lush movement.
Texture: Kristin appears to have medium to medium thick hair in excellent shape with either natural bend or natural waves. Her hair appears to have very slight layers skillfully placed around the perimeter of her hairstyle.
For the Red Carpet her hair is usually styled with lots of body and some volume built in around the crown. For less formal events she generally wears her hair straighter with a slight hint of bend or waves, especially near the nape of her neck in back.
Fringe: Kristin's rarely wears a fringe and is often seen with her chocolate brown tresses cascading from a side part which directs a section of hair near the hairline over to the opposite side of her face.
Sometimes Kristin's hair is brushed off her hairline in such a style that no obvious part is visible.
Face Shape: Kristin's face shape is a blend of oval and square. She has beautifully chiseled cheekbones which slope into a slightly rounded chin.
Hairstyle Works Best: Kristin's hairstyle works best for hair which is shoulder length or longer which is all one length or with very subtle layers.
The best texture for recreating this hairstyle is hair with some bend, natural waves or light curls. It can be copied with or without a fringe.
Hair Tools Required: Large barrel curling iron or hot rollers, 100% boar bristle brush, long tail comb, bobby pins, styling spray and/or cream, sculpting hairspray, shine spray and/or serum drops.
To add strategically placed volume, fullness and length you may wish to play with clip-in hair extensions.
How To Recreate Kristin Davis' Wavy Hairstyle
Kristin Davis wears her tresses in hairstyles which work with the event she is attending while complementing her face shape and fashions.
To copy Kristin's long wavy hairstyle follow the simple steps listed below:
1. Start with either freshly cleansed and completely dry hair or with day old hair with a cream or spray designed to help with the creation of soft hair waves. Depending on your hair type and texture you may prefer mousse, gel or some other styling product.
Note: If you shampoo your hair before styling be sure to use products for your hair type (fine/thin, medium, thick, very thick), texture (straight, wavy, curly, kinky) and current condition (normal, damaged, extremely damaged).
2. If you wish to copy Kristin's look completely, create a deep side part extending directly off the hairline using a long tail comb. If you prefer, you can copy Kristin's hairstyle with a fringe or different part although it may not look exactly the same.
After prepping hair with spray or similar, wrap around a large barrel curling iron (or large hot rollers) for a few seconds to avoid burning or damaging strands. Hold the iron until you feel the heat coming off of the hair.
5. After creating the hot curls and removing the iron, re-roll curl around fingers to recreate the curl. Pin to the scalp.
Note: If you prefer, you can opt to use either hot rollers or create a wet set with traditional style sponge, rag or adhesive style rollers to achieve similar results.
6. When all the sections of hair have been completely ironed, reformed and pinned, spritz the entire head lightly with a setting or styling spray.
7. When hair is completely dry and cool, unpin each curl.
Spray well and then smooth back and over to the opposite side of the head from the part to achieve that sexy sweep of hair Kristin is famous for.
9. Rake through the remaining hair with your fingers to arrange hair into sexy waves just like Kristin is wearing on The Red Carpet above. For added tousle you may bend over at the waist and gently shake your strands.
10. For Kristin's brilliant shine add a few drops of shine serum, spray or shine enhancing hairspray to the palms of your hands and then wipe lightly over the top of your tresses. Remember that a little bit of shine product goes a very long way.
Note: If the waves are too well formed use a 100% boar bristle brush to break up the waves a bit and make them softer. Remember the smaller the curling iron barrel, the tighter the resulting curls and waves.
Kristin's hairstyle is a classic style and truly gorgeous. It can be worn for any Holiday or Party Hair event ranging from a formal or semi-formal dinner or a special formal dance or Prom.
This is a classic hairstyle which never goes out of style. To amp up the look even more add a bejewelled hairpin clip on one side of the hairline or slide or a jeweled headband.
Kristin recently appeared on the cover of Health Magazine. Inside the publication she shared her challenges with keeping her svelte body shape.
The petite actress revealed she isn't perfect with her diet but has learned to listen to her body. She acknowledged she has weakness like other people. Hers just happen to be M&Ms.
Kristin reveal in Health that "if I want some, I will have them. I went through periods when I said 'I can't have this' or 'I can't have that' but now I don't deprive myself."
