Courtney Cox may be a girl that gets a lot of flack for having mommy thighs or mussed up hair, but let’s not forget that she is a mom in her 40’s, and I gotta say, if we could all be so lucky, no? Here she is seen looking pretty darn good for a “Cougar” while on the set of her hit TV show “Cougar Town” riding a bike. And if you didn’t know it was Courtney Cox (as if, but let’s just say) and you weren’t too close, my guess is that you wouldn’t be pegging this chick on the bike as a 40 something mom, would you? So let’s give her a little credit, and some recognition for the fact that you don’t have to look glamorously styled to look…well…glamorous.
For her look on set, Courtney went for a simple look in a simple sundress and pink sweater over her beachwear for her beach scene on set. She went with simple with her hair piled up and little concern for muss and fuss and even so, she still looks fabulous with her hair pulled back in a quick ponytail and piled on top of her head. This just goes to show that yes, you can get away with second day hair without drawing too much attention to yourself. This look is obviously not one that you need to style or maintain, it’s a simple matter of effortlessly pinning your hair up and out of your way when you are ready to break a sweat or head to the beach. If you are hanging out in the outdoors like Courtney here, you also want to be sure to run some anti humectants through your hair to protect your hair from the sun’s exposure, and to minimize any drying out from outdoor elements. Post beach day, you definitely want to lose the second day hair, and wash and go as you normally would for your day.
