Andrea Lee Christensen plays sneaky informant Riley Saxe on “Power Book II: Ghost,” and her colorful hair is the perfect fit for her mischievous character.
“Actually, the casting was for a girl with purple hair, and I had already had the pink hair for like two years, so I think the casting directors were like, ‘Oh, sweet, nice, she already has the hair,’” Christensen told Page Six Style.
The actress says going pink in the first place was “a spur-of-the-moment decision.”
“I was reading this really great book where the protagonist changed her life, so I wanted to do something to change my life. I just went to Urban Outfitters and bought pink hair dye, and the rest is history,” she recalled.
Now, Christensen is taking all measures to maintain her eye-catching look, regularly lathering up with Celeb Luxury’s Viral Colorwash ($35).
“It’s a bright pink shampoo that deposits color, because without that the pink washes out in like two washes and it’s just annoying,” she said. “And instead of using conditioner, I use a deep conditioning mask from Dae ($28) and it’s really been working so far. I also try to use a heat protectant before I style it.”
The California native — who now resides in New York — takes her skincare techniques from her mother, who is from Taiwan, and her dad, who is Danish and German.
“I do beauty preps before a scene for the show, but it’s really hard with the mask because ‘maskne’ is a real thing. But I try a lot of new products. Right now I’m using this French brand called Biologique Recherche. I use the Lotion P50 ($30) to balance and exfoliate my skin. And then I use their Placenta Creme ($66) as my moisturizer.”
And when it comes to that first major purchase from her new Starz paycheck, Christensen has only one dream.
“I would love to be able to take my mom on vacation once everything settles down in the world. I would love to take her to a Greek island somewhere and just have a good life and tan,” she told us.
