Ashley Greene Recalls Her Worst Hair Mishaps

Ashley Greene Beauty Tips

Sure she looks gorgeous on a daily basis now, but Ashley Greene didn’t always know how to best take care of her skin and hair.

“I think the biggest mistake I ever made was when one of my friends was like, ‘You should just iron your hair with an iron,'” she tells Stylelist. Needless to say, “It was not good at all. It was just stick-straight. I was probably around 14 when I did that; I did a lot of dumb things at 14.”

She’s also moved past over-dying — “My hair’s been every color under the sun,” she admits — and over-scrunching, too. “I used entirely too much hair gel,” she says. “It was highly flammable, extremely crunchy. I feel like you could break it. It was not a good look for me.”

These days, though, the Twilight star is feeling more comfortable in her own skin, and encouraging others to find that confidence, too. “I don’t know that I’ve ever met someone who hasn’t had some type of insecure moment or stage,” she shares. But “I understand that a lot of things aren’t the end of the world. There were certain things I was very insecure about, but I’m constantly going out there trying to make girls feel like they are special, and I think it rubs off on me.”

So what is the starlet most looking forward to these days? Strangely enough, her answer is aging. “My mom said she loved her 30s, she was most comfortable in her 30s,” the actress explains. “So I’m looking forward to that. A lot of it’s you live, you learn, you grow.” Tell us: What was your worst beauty mistake ever?
