#HQGirlCrush : Taylor Momsen

The next in our #HQGirlCrush series is the one and only Taylor Momsen. She is one of our absolute favourite rock chicks of all time here at HQhair and we couldn’t resist the chance to have a little fan girl moment! We will be forever jealous of this sassy 22 year old rocker, with her tousled long blonde locks and supermodel figure, what’s not to love?

Who is Taylor Momsen?

Taylor Momsen has been destined for stardom from the young age of 3 when she began acting, starting with the commercial for ‘Shake n’ Bake’. She then went on to land herself the part in The Grinch, followed by Gossip Girl. As well as acting, Taylor also has a successful career in modelling running on the side lines of her hectic lifestyle.

Even though Taylor is an astounding actress and model, this grunge chic’s real passion lies in music and her band (The Pretty Reckless) takes top priority. This alternative artist has such a wide variety of talents we think she may actually be a robot!

Dr Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas


In 2000, Taylor was cast as Cindy Lou Who in The Grinch, the minute we saw her looking adorable with those extremely eccentric plaits we instantly fell in love. Somehow even one of the biggest stereotypically punk celebrities can put us in the Christmas spirit and melt our hearts. One thing we cannot take our eyes off is those precious eyelashes…so cute! Recreate them for a cutesy Christmas party look with Eyelure Texture 153 Lashes.

Gossip Girl


The role which brought Taylor Momsen to the little screen was her part in Gossip Girl. Sticking at it for 5 seasons, her career flew and her fan base grew immensely. When her role as Jenny Humphrey came to an end, so did her squeaky-clean image and even though we adore the edgy bold Taylor, she still managed to pull off the innocent look.

The Pretty Reckless


Commonly known as lead singer of The Pretty Reckless, this grunge girl is forever rocking out with 3 number one singles and performing over 450 shows! As much as we love the sweet and innocent image, Taylor Momsen rocks the gothic form with her signature black eye make up and tousled tresses; making her the ultimate definition of a hot mess. She even revealed during an interview that on tour there isn’t time to wash, making dry shampoo and black eye shadow her only essentials! Achieve her style with a spray of Tigi Bedhead Oh Be Hive Dry Shampoo and go overboard piling on Lord & Berry Sketch Eye Pencil as she states ‘Whatever is the blackest eye shadow I can find, that glittery stuff or blue blacks just don’t cut it’.
