Amanda Seyfried, she-of-the-hypnotizing-eyes, is on the cover of InStyle Hair right now. And you have to admit, it’s hard not to want some nice Amanda Seyfried hair of your very own (we know you’d treat it right!).

It is so long, wavy and shiny. And hey – we are running a giveaway sponsored by Dove (who is working with Glee!) for amazing conditioners that will be the first step in having similar hair. (Hint, hint! Go enter!)

Psst. Hiya! If you’re new to the site, make sure to check out our review and giveaway section because we have several AMAZING giveaway’s each month!

Amanda talked to InStyle Hair about her hair tips and makeup preferences:

On the reason she’d cut her hair: “I would chop [my hair] all off for a movie, but the role would have to be worth it.”

On why she likes wavy hair over straightened hair: “It’s natural. It means I spend less time doing my hair”

On the eye makeup she likes: “[I like] smoky eyes at night, and a nice little cat eye is really helpful,” she says. “You want to look like yourself but not too naked.”

On why red lips are the best: “It has a more traditional glamour,” she says. “It’s timeless.”

On preferring lipstick over gloss: “I don’t wear it often, but I like the matte finish.”

Seyfried’s next movie, Letters To Juliet, hits theaters this Friday, May 14th. It’s definitely a must-see for me.

Amanda Seyfried’s Hair: try it on yourself!:

But back to her hair! Have you ever want to kind of virtually try it on? InStyle has a free program on your website that will let you upload your picture and try on her hair, or let you pick from a selection of other Hollywood celebs known for their tresses. What’s really cool is that they even let you play around with the hair color, highlights, and low lights. And that stuff  really makes a difference in how your hair can look – but it’s better to test it out virtually than spend the time and money on something you’d hate.

How to get Amanda Seyfried’s Hair from the InStyle cover look with a flower hair clip:

  1. While wet, use a volume boosting product (or a volume boosting shampoo). Let your hair air dry so it has maximum wave. Make a deep side part.
  2. Take a curling iron and define some large waves in your hair (Bottom half only), making sure to run your fingers along it so that it doesn’t look too tight. (For this Amanda Seyfried hair tutorial, I am suggesting using a curling iron – but if your hair is wavy enough that you can skip it, by all means do!)

  3. Spray your hair lightly with hairspray so the waves don’t fall, and optionally – some shine spray (her hair is always super shiny). Smooth the top 1/3 of your hair down the most for this particular look. But be careful not to use too much product or it will look oily!

  4. On the side where you have most hair hanging on the side of your face, take your hairclip and gently slide it against your hair, anchoring it against your head so it’s lining up with the outer corner of your eye. It should remain viewable in the front. Arrange your waves to look like they’re flowing down from the flower.
