Chrissy Teigen Beauty Interview | Spring 2016

Chrissy Teigen Talks Long Bangs, Social Media, and Casseroles

If anyone's got effortless beauty on lockdown, it's Chrissy Teigen. When we met on a rainy day at a West Hollywood hotel, the seven-time Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, Lip Sync Battle cohost, and cookbook author was sporting a flawlessly neutral, lash-heavy look. It also didn't hurt that the 30-year-old mother-to-be was positively glowing. Her snug black dress showed off a beautiful belly, and her hair cascaded in glamorous waves, with just the right amount of volume — fitting since she was there celebrating her new role as a brand ambassador for Tresemmé's Beauty-Full Volume collection.

The line — which includes prewash conditioner, shampoo that softens sans heaviness, a maximizer, mousse, and hair spray — is something Teigen uses on a daily basis, ensuring that this endorsement passes her self-proclaimed "bullsh*t meter." That's another thing we love about Teigen: her unabashed authenticity. She is not afraid to speak her mind, and when it comes to shutting down haters, Mrs. John Legend is a total pro. Just last week, she took to Twitter to tell snarky commenters to "Go f*cking be happy, please."

When I asked if her husband offers any advice in this arena, she laughed: "He knows better than to give me any social media tips." But tips from Teigen are exactly what we want. Here, she reveals how to feel awesome in the face of haterade so you, too, can adopt her zero-tolerance policy . . . starting now.
