Shenae Grimes Hair

Shenae Grimes Hair

Shenae Grimes (born October 24, 1989) currently portrays the role of Annie Wilson on 90210, a spinoff of Beverly Hills, 90210. While famous for her ongoing role on the CW Network, she is adored by fans for her hair. Her hair is long, lush and often wave enhanced.

Shenae has been consistent about keeping her hair long and lush, but she's changed up the color from her trademark light chocolate brown to a recent deep dark chocolate which she then had dipped a lighter brunette along the edges.

Prior to her famous turn as Annie she played Darcy Edwards on Degrassi: The Next Generation. She was also a recurring guest star on the series Naturally, Sadie, and had a cameo role in the horror film Scream 4.

She also appeared in Picture This with her former Degrassi: The Next Generation co-star Lauren Collins and Ashley Tisdale and then in True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet alongside singer JoJo.

In 2009, Grimes was named one of the world's most beautiful peopl, without makeup, by People magazine. She also appeared in a music video for rock band Our Lady Peace's single "All You Did Was Save My Life".

In May 2011, during her 90210 hiatus, she took a six-week internship at Teen Vogue in New York City. She stated that working as an editor for a fashion magazine has always been her dream.   The Canadian actress has cited Natalie Portman as her inspiration.

Shanae Grimes Hair How To

Shenae's current base hair color, as of the end of Sepetember 2011,  is a gorgeous dark chocolate interwoven from the chin down to the ends with contrasting auburn dipped hues.  It's a spectacular mix of rich auburn dipped ends and deep dark chocolate roots and top hair.

Does Shenae have perfectly selected hair extensions which instantly create the stunning contrasting color palette?

Regardless of how she got the great dipped dye hair color, Shenae offsets her stunning hair color hues with flawless make-up.  She plays up her beautiful eyes, lips and skin.

Although she has been photographed with her below-the-shoulder length tresses bone straight, she tends to rock lots of  very loose waves which fall strategically mid-cheek and shoulder length before cascading down into the hint of a loose curls at the ends.

Her hair appears to be medium in thickness and either straight or just slightly wavy in textures.

Shenae's hair is precision cut with slight layers enhancing the loose curls and waves patterns throughout her head.  This explains her beautiful natural texture profile.

When she and the other 90210 cast members are dressing up for a stroll down the Red Carpet she tends to wear  her hair with more volume, movement and lots of bouncy curls cascading from a messy center or off-center part. This gives her hair the look of stellar texture.

Shenae has a combination of an oval and square shaped face features which looks great with her long lush slightly waved hairstyle.   The length of her hair balances out her strong chin.

Step By Step Instructions On How To Copy Shenae Grimes Hairstyle

Although Shenae doesn't wear a traditional fringe, she often has side swept panels of hair extending over the sides of her forehead from a center part or off center part.  It softens her square face shape and imparts a saucy look.  It also plays up those stunning eyes.

Follow the steps below to copy Shenae's beautiful long and lush hairstyle:


Start by detangling hair with fingers or a wide tooth comb to remove knots, snarls and tangle. If hair is fragile it might  be advisable to pre-oil the hair with a light jojoba oil or apply it just to dry or crunchy ends.


Wash hair in lukewarm water with the shampoo product designed for your hair type, texture and condition. If you wish, utilize your unique washing program ranging from full shampoo to Diluted Shampoo (DS), low poo, Conditioner Only Wash (CO Wash), no poo or water only.

Note: If you have chemically colored hair like Shenae it would be best to use either a highly diluted moisturizing shampoo, do a conditioning only wash (CO Wash) or use a product line specifically designed to preserve  this type of hair.

Rinse out shampoo (if used) and then apply a rinse out conditioner from the tops of the ears down to the ends and detangle with a wide tooth comb or fingers.

Rinse well and then finish with a cool or cold water rinse. Towel blot (don't rub) to remove excess moisture. If the hair is washed with a Conditioner Only Wash (CO Wash) then detangle at the end of the cleansing cycle.


Apply your designed styling cocktail to your hair working it through with fingers or a wide tooth comb. Your idea cocktail to re-create Shenae's hair might consist of, but not be limited to, leave-in conditioner, defristant, styling mousse and a volumizing spray for roots to get that lush look Shenae showcases.

Since chemically colored hair is dry and fragile, be sure to use moisturizing products.


Separate hair into 8-10 individual sections. Use a long finger diffuser working through individual sections at a time and allowing the strands to rest in the basin of the diffuser. After each section is dry, roll into a spiral or ringlet curl with your fingers and pin against your scalp to set.

To get lots of volume throughout the crown area you may prefer to separate hair into 1-2" sections and blow dry with a 100% boar bristle round brush.  Once each section is dry then roll around fingers into a big barrel curl pinned against the scalp.


Unpin all sections of dry hair. Touch up any uneven sections with a curling iron. Bend over at the waist and gently shake out curls. Arrange with fingers.

Apply 1-2 drops of shine serum into the palms of your hands. Avoid pulling any curl clumps apart with fingers or else frizz will form. Do not brush.


Shenae was interviewed in the December 2010 issue of OK! Magazine and shared some inside

scoops about her life.  She told OK! that the last time she felt embarrassed was "right now;  I'm at Starbucks with a terrible hairdo!"

Obviously the 90210 star works hard to keep her hair looking amazing, both on and off camera, although truth be told, she probably has some pretty stellar hairstylists on her speed dial to help her keep her tresses in tip top shape.

The 21 year old actress also told OK! that she's "brutally honest" and "definitely not too much of a liar."  In fact, she said "I'm pretty blunt."

The actress does have a great sense of humor.  She explained to OK! that she laughed when she "tried on a baby blue one-piece swimsuit with a Baywatch high-cut leg.  I looked like Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat."

Well that seems highly doubtful, but since she promised she is not much of a liar I guess we'll just have to take her word for her time as a Borat look-a-like.
