Dove Cameron Reveals Her Nightmare 'Mullet Situation'—and How She 'Fixed' It

When you think of Dove Cameron, what's the first thing that comes to mind?

Okay, aside from epitomizing #relationshipgoals with Thomas Doherty, don't you think of her luscious blonde locks?  Well, we certainly do!

But, as it turns out, stars (or at least Dove) are just like us, and yep, they didn't always have the enviable manes they do today.

"When I was in 6th grade, I cut my own bangs, and it was one of those things where you start and you're like, 'Okay, I'm going to cut them right here,' " Dove recently told us. "And then you're like, 'I think bangs are typically meant to go back a little further,' and then you get back to here and it's no longer bangs and it's a little bit more of a mullet situation."

The Descendants 2 starlet thought she had the perfect solution, which only got her into a deeper hair hole.

"And then I was like, 'I'm going to fix it, I'm going to dye it black!'" she said with a laugh. "I was like, 'You know what? It's fine, I'm just going to make it black, no one's going to notice,' and I just made it so much worse. And that was the beginning of my experimentation with my own hair. Because you know the box dyes—ooh girl, middle school was the time of experimentation. And I've definitely grown."

Fast-forward to the present, and the actress now has her very own extension line with Bellami (and it isn't just for blondes)!

"I've been wearing extensions since I was like 14," she admits. "Not all the time—my fans have definitely seen me without them, but I just really like them. It's like a costume. But Bellami actually contacted me and asked if I would be interested in doing a collaboration because they felt I was on-brand for them, and I knew it was going to be something different than they'd done before. It's a really great fit. It really has been me designing everything along the way, which has been so fun and fantastic."

Regardless of age or your level of experimentation, Dove has these words of wisdom when it comes to maintaining healthy hair.

"Don't style your hair with a heating tool every day," she advises. "I'd say unless I am doing something for an event, I let my hair air-dry, and I always have oils in it. Like when people see me out in public, I look a mess. I have coconut oil on top of my head, bloodshot eyes."

And another big no-no:

"Don't dye your hair dark if you're planning on going blonde," she says adamantly. "Because the number one problem with blondes is that they'll strip their hair of color and then bleach it, and it'll all fall out."
