Molly Sims: Hair Las Vegas Style


In 2004 NBC introduced Las Vegas which was developed by Gary Scott Thompson of The Fast and the Furious fame. The fast-paced, sexy drama follows the elite Las Vegas surveillance team charged with maintaining the security of one of Sin City's largest resorts and casinos.

James Caan stars as Big Ed Deline, the head of the surveillance team for the Montecito Resort & Casio. His protg is Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel). If the typical job pressures of dealing with card counters, cheaters and rival casinos weren't enough, Big Ed has to contend with the fact that Danny was caught in bed with his only daughter, Delinda (Molly Sims, MTV's House of Style).

From Sports Illustrated To House Of Style

A true Southern Belle, Molly is a classic Gemini (5-25-73) beauty who spent ten years working around the supermodel block. During her ten years in the professional posing world, Molly made a huge splash as a Sports Illustrated swimsuit star.

Admired for her stunning beauty, her silky blonde tresses and spectacular bone structure she was picked to grace the covers of several fashion magazines like Allure (April 2003) and Cosmopolitan (July Cover March 2002) over the years.

The gorgeous former competitive swimmer successfully parlayed her talents into a gig as hostess of MTV's House of Style following the likes of Cindy Crawford, Rebecca Romijn and Amber Valetta.

Molly also parlayed her versatile talents into being a special reporter for Entertainment Tonight as well as being the spokes model for Cover Girl Cosmetics and Old Navy. Her beautiful face has also graced commercials for M&Ms, Armani, Chanel and Maidenform, to name just a few.

Sophisticated Yet Edgy

Molly is a self-confessed shop-a-holic haunting New York's East Village looking for unusual fashion finds. The blonde beauty is famous for her sophisticated yet edgy style.

Molly, who was born in Kentucky, lets her personality dictate her style. Her own personal style inspiration is Cameron Diaz who Molly believes looks sexy whether in jeans or a designer gown.

Steal Her Look

Molly, like any other buys model, spokesperson and television star has to contend with taking good care of her tresses. She has to make sure that her strands do not fall victim to fly-away frizz.

From her years in the modeling world, Molly has access to a stable of celebrity hairdressers to coif her to perfection for her red carpet strolls and movie premieres. When she appeared on Allure's April 2003 issue, she was coiffed by super stylist Serge Normant. The master hairdresser gave Molly a version of late 60s bangs inspired by actress and fashion muse Jane Birkin.

Sims was quoted as saying that "she loved the retro style so much that she asked Serge to redo the cut for her several weeks after the April cover shoot.

Although Molly has gone through a dizzying array of hairstyles over the years that ranged from no bangs to full bangs to side swept bangs, she tends to favor wearing her honey golden tresses long and loose in an alternating array from curls and waves to sleek and straight. For a change of pace she likes to wear her hair up in a soft twisted style for Red Carpet appearances. Although her hue is usually a rich honey, at times she appears to flirt with darker strawberry blonde shades.

Back in 2002 and 2003 Molly adopted the popular hair in the face and long bangs in the eyes style that were then very popular with models.

She confessed in a Cosmo interview that that style, although "definitely a look to get" was "hard to wear". She also confessed that she liked to keep changing her look because it's always fun to try different hairstyles. After all, "you only live once".


Molly's hair has been heavily highlighted and colored for years. She also has spent a lot of time posing in settings that are focused on surf and sand. When she films on the Las Vegas sets, her hair is subjected to lots of temperature changes and very hot lights. All of these environments tend to make hair dry and prone to the fly-a-ways and frizz.

To protect bleached, blonde highlighted or colored tresses, start by dousing hair completely with lukewarm water. Keep in mind that hotter temperatures will speed up fading and dry hair even further.

Select a super moisturizing shampoo formula like Phytojoba or one designed for colored hair like Phytocitrus. For ultra dry or super fragile strands, use the dry hair formulas and dilute the shampoo for extra gentleness.

Tips For Diluting Shampoo

To dilute shampoo mix 1 part of your favorite product in a freshly washed container with 8-10 parts of warm water. Shake until the mixture forms a suds.

Drizzle the suds over the top of your crown and pat into wet strands. Gently drizzle some of the sudsy formula down the length of your strands. Pat carefully.

Apply only one shampoo application. Rinse well with lukewarm water.

If your hair is very prone to extreme dryness or frizz, consider adopting one of the Phyto Special Treatment programs in for dry hair or for fighting frizz.


After one application of shampoo, rinse well. Keep in mind that if shampoo is not completely removed, a soap film will remain on your strands and cause them to be dull or hard to manage.

When you have finished rinsing your strands gently squeeze out any excess water with your fingers. Apply your favorite rinse-out conditioning product. Match the product to your hair type, texture and condition.

Work the conditioner into the driest parts of your hair. Leave on for up to five minutes. Rinse well. Finish with a cool to cold water rinse.


Towel blot your strands to remove excess drippage. Apply your favorite detangling product or leave-in conditioning product based on your type, texture and current condition of your strands.

Keep in mind that if you have fine or thin strands, you will want to use a very light detangling spray. For medium to thicker strands, use a heavier conditioning product.

If you are prone to frizz, experiment with frizz fighting formulas like Phytodefrisant or John Frieda Frizz Ease that help provide a sleeker smoother finish.


If you want to go for Molly's sleek straight style, be sure to either apply a defrisant product like Phytodefrisant or a straightening balm like Robert Hallowell's Flat Factor.

Distribute a dime-sized dollop of the product of your choice into the palms of your hands and mix well. Use your fingers to work the product completely through your tresses.


Separate your hair into 2" sections and blow dry with a large round brush, starting near the back of the head and working around to the front on either side.

Beginning at the back of your head, blow-dry hair in half-inch pieces using a large round brush. To create extra volume, hold brush in the hair near the scalp until the hair cools (about five seconds), then move the brush down and through to the ends of the hair.


To create a super straight finish, use a hot flat iron to touch up any sections that require a smoother texture.


If desired, spray lightly with the hairspray of your choice. Finish with a shine serum or spray. Apply to the palms of your hands and lightly brush across the surface of your hair.

Optional Looks

If you prefer to go with Molly's loose curled look as shown to the side, follow all of the steps above until Step 5.

Apply a styling mousse like Paves Professional Red Carpet Firm Hold Styling Mousse or Rene Furterer Anti-Dehydrating Structuring Mousse - Strong Hold or if you prefer, the Rene Furterer Soft Hold Mousse, and substitute a 1 1/2" barrel curling iron for the flat iron.

Separate strands into small 1 to 2" sections. Working from side to side, wrap each section around the hot iron. Hold for up to 30 seconds. Gently release the curling iron and roll the hot new curl around your fingertips and then pin against your scalp to cool. Continue to curl and pin until your entire head has been curled.

If you prefer, use medium to large sized hot rollers for a tighter and longer lasting set.

Let pinned curls completely cool. Before removing the pins spray the hair liberally with a good holding hairspray like Paves Professional Flawless Convertible-Proof Firm Hold Hair Spray or PhytoPro Instant Hold Spray #15). For fine or thin strands, use Phytolaque Soie Hair Spray designed for a softer hold.

Use your fingertips to tousle the ends to get that edgy look that Molly wore at the 40th Annual Country Music Awards at the top of the page or at The Color of M&M Party above.

If you want to play with a variety of looks like Molly would, experiment with different parts, bangs and even pulling some strands behind your ears.
