Zooey Deschanel: 'I Love My Hair, That's Part Of Who I Am!'

Star also reveals her nasty beauty habit...

By On

Zooey Deschanel has wowed us with her Snow White-esque fair beauty, glossy dark locks and generally impeccable appearance on the shoe New Girl, but the star has some shameful habits when it comes to taking care of herself.

The 32-year-old actress and singer revealed that she cares most about her hair, and we can almost tell that from the off with her perfectly trimmed fringe and slick wavy 'do.

''I love my hair, that’s a part of who I am,” Zooey told People magazine. “I don’t like having short hair — I don’t feel like myself.”

And as for the dip dye trend and eccentric shorter cuts to match her wacky personality, Zooey doesn't see the appeal.

“I’ve always liked having a ‘normal’ hair colour,” she says. “I’ve never had ‘weird’ hair … never really wanted it.”

Zooey is pretty much tied down to her immaculate look as well – she's signed to a Pantene contract after all.

“I’m on a show, so it’s not like I can cut my hair off,” she explains. “I also have a Pantene contract, so I don’t think they would like it.”

But Zooey isn't all prim and proper when it comes to her beauty habits. She claims she doesn't care about her nails at all and even bites them to keep them short. Ew!

“I love nail art, but I don’t care about my nails,” she revealed. And when she says 'doesn't care' – believe her.

''f I don’t have my nails done, I’ll bite them. I don’t take care of them,'' she added. Zooey will opt for a manicure when she has to, including the Golden Globes and Emmys among them.

She said: “I’ll get [a manicure] every once in a while, but I don’t have time,” she says. “When I do the show, I just have plain nails.”
