Ashley Greene: I Used to Be a Tomboy

She may be known for her pretty red carpet dresses and girly on-screen persona, but growing up, Ashley Greene says she was “definitely” a tomboy. “I was always trying to be like my older brother,” she admits in the latest issue of InStyle Hair. But as she grew up, Greene became more aware of femininity. “I got really self-conscious because I had older friends. I thought they were prettier, and they were going through all these life experiences before I was.” So Greene’s mom enrolled her in modeling classes, aimed at giving her confidence a boost. “[They] helped a lot,” she says. Now, the 24-year-old is a total glamour girl — even starring in ads for Mark cosmetics — but she hasn’t lost her tomboy roots. “I love having my hair and makeup done, but I’m really just a 15-minute girl, throwing everything on with no fuss,” she shares. Transforming into her Twilight character, Alice Cullen, however, requires two hours in the stylist’s chair. “My hair is pretty thick, and we wrap it and put it under a wig,” she explains. “To get it to fit so I don’t look like I have an alien head is a talent in itself.” Since the Twilight series began in 2008, Greene says her wig has gone through three major changes. “The newest is a classic Audrey Hepburn cut,” she shares. Perhaps we’ll see it in Breaking Dawn later this year? For more on Greene’s style evolution, pick up the latest issue of InStyle Hair, on newsstands April 8. Kate Hogan

Ashley Greene looks great on the new Issue of InStyle Hair, it’s interesting she used to be a Tomboy, but I’m glad that, after Her Mom signed her up for Modeling Classes, it worked out! Also, The Biggest Loser Host, Alison Sweeney, 34, looks great in a Bikini, and it’s interesting to hear what she had to say!
