Julia Sarr-Jamois is a constant beauty inspiration and I am so excited that Vogue.com sat down with her to discuss some of her beauty secrets. From her love of minimal makeup to the fact that she thinks of her hair as a statement piece, I now love her even more.

“I’ve had my hair like this since I was about fourteen. When I was at school, I had it in plaits, which were quite tedious, and I thought, ‘I’m going to take it out for a bit.’ I remember feeling like it looked really big at first but then I ended up keeping it. I wash it with Bumble and Bumble Tonic shampoo, which smells so good. And a more intense Bumble and Bumble conditioner called Creme de Coco Masque. Then I let it air-dry and maybe play around with it for a bit with my hands. That’s it. People are always asking about it, though. And everyone wants to touch it.”
“When I wake up in the morning, my hair just kind of bounces back into place. It really never changes. If it’s warm in the summer, I’ll tie it up into a high ponytail with an elastic band. Otherwise, it can get quite hot—it’s like I’m wearing one of those fuzzy Prada hats from the fall collection. For Halloween, I went to a Disney-themed party, so I tied it into two little bunches on top of my head with a bow like Minnie Mouse. Everybody knew who I was!”
“I’ve never really been into makeup. My hair is my statement, along with my clothes. I love prints and colors and texture. I like to have a bit of fun with what I’m wearing and not be too serious. I guess it’s the same with my hair. I do feel like London has this thing where you could be wearing a bag on your head and nobody really looks at you. Or maybe it’s that British people are just too polite to stare. The only thing I won’t wear with my hair is flared jeans. I love them, but that look is way too seventies-child.”
