Marie Ferro, owner of Marie’s Hair Studio in Malibu, CA, has been doing actress Jane Seymour’s color and haircuts for 15 years. In preparation for a recent InStyle Magazine photo shoot celebrating “50 Years of Bond Girls” Seymour sought out Ferro for a quick touch-up.
“Jane is known as a beauty icon and is always asked about her anti-aging tips because she doesn’t look much older than when she was a Bond Girl, “ says Ferro.”One of the ways I keep her hair looking youthful is to create shine and dimension. I use three interwoven colors and apply a toner over all for additional shine, creating a watercolor, washed effect over the entire color.”
And the cut? “Cutting face framing layers accents her beautiful features and long layers throughout her hair gives the hair flow and movement.”
Seymour, actress, artist, philanthropist, and spokesperson, became Bond Girl beautiful with this Ferro formula:
