Do you remember the first time you saw someone and thought they must be the most beautiful person you’ve ever seen? Almost 40 years ago, when I was five years old, Bruce Springsteen’s I remember that very clearly when I was watching the music video for “In the Dark.” In it, 20-year-old short-haired Courteney Cox was dragged onto the stage dancing. She made an adorable first impression with Boss and ultimately the world. Especially to a kindergartener in New Jersey who suddenly wanted to cut her waist-length hair. (Reader, she didn’t.)
I wanted to be like her one day, but Cox turned out to be in a hurry to stretch out that hairy pixie. “That was the scariest haircut I’ve ever had in my life,” Cox told me by phone. She “didn’t like it then, and I definitely don’t like it now.” In fact, the only hairstyle she regrets more is the one she wore in one horror film series, when she created the infamous baby bangs. Thing. Due to her ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, she currently has no freedom to speak. (She also couldn’t mention a popular comedy she starred in.)
Bangs are making a hilarious comeback on Instagram in 2020, when, like several celebs in the first year of the pandemic, she’s kicking off a new chapter as a prolific content creator. And given her obvious talent, her culinary and comedy reels have racked up hundreds of thousands of likes, but it’s not until March 2023 that she finally joins TikTok. Hard to believe it took. Her clips are now garnering millions of likes. “I don’t take it seriously,” she tells me. “I just try to be creative and silly and I like it [create content about] Things you want to know or things that make you laugh. “
Cox says her beauty routine when recording a TikTok isn’t much different than on a non-content-creating day. Under-eye concealer, mascara and, of course, moisturizers that work wonders even when your skin is often irritated. Traveling on super-dry planes. “That’s why I love Dermalogica His Stabilizing His Repairing Cream,” says Cox, a new partner at the brand. She “truly protects the barrier.” And since a good portion of her posts are recorded outdoors, sunscreen is a no-brainer, which is what she’s been wearing here in her decade. It’s a daily habit I put on.
Now, with regards to TikTok consumption, Cox said many of the “new” trends being put out by Gen Z influencers seem to be something the rest of the generation knows, so it’s more about home care than beauty and health content. He says he spends a lot of time looking for hacks. for decades. For example, why is cottage cheese trending on TikTok?Cox has been a big fan of the dairy product for as long as he can remember. She couldn’t see her over the phone, but she felt her lighten up when she happened to stumble upon the topic.
