IF, like us, you’ve been a fan of That Seventies Show since it first aired in the late nineties, you were no doubt already familiar with Lauren Prepon when she first appeared as Alex Vause on Orange Is The New Black. She’s conquered the world of television with not just one, but two hit shows (so far), but what you might not know is that she’s also an author and director. Not to mention being a full-time mom too. She keeps her private life pretty private, but she’s not shy to share her secrets to looking fab.

RED. Platinum. Black. She’s rocked it all! But her natural hair colour is a beautiful auburn. We’d love to see her as a redhead again!

Cash Flow Problemo
“I’M bad about putting my money into my wallet, so I have cash free-floating at the bottom of my bag. My friends have to take my purse and put my loose bills away for me.”
