Ugly Betty is a delightful show that ran from 2006 to 2010 and tells a story about a woman named Betty who starts working for a high-end fashion magazine called The Mode. The thing about Betty is she doesn’t exactly fit in with the elite fashion world. The show follows her adventures in a classic fish-out-water story. See where the cast of this lovable show is now.

Rebecca Romijn as Alexis Meade

We won’t spoil the show for you, but we will say that Alexis Meade was a huge plot twist in the series. Well, Rebecca Romijn’s career isn’t surprising at all, as the actress continues to be successful in Hollywood. She has voiced Lois Lane in four different animated superhero films, and appeared in The Librarians, Eastwick, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and X-Men.

Ashley Jensen as Christina McKinney

Christina McKinney was Betty’s best friend in her intimidating work environment. Ashley Jensen has continued that success across the pond by starring in the UK series Agatha Raisin. She’s also appeared in Accidentally on Purpose, Catastrophe, Love & Marriage, and After Life.

Vanessa Williams as Wilhelmina Slater

As a former beauty queen, Vanessa Williams was the perfect person to play Betty’s scarily fashionable boss Wilhelmina Slater. In fact, the actress did such a good job in the role that she won the Best TV Villain award at the 2007  Teen Choice Awards. Since then, Williams has starred in 666 Park Ave and Daytime Divas.

Becki Newton as Amanda Tanen

Amanda Tanen was low-key everyone’s favorite character from Ugly Betty. Since being the receptionist we hated to love, Becki Newton has lent her voice to the animated series American Dad. She’s also starred in The Lincoln Lawyer, Love Bites, How I Met Your Mother, and Divorce.

America Ferrera as Betty Suarez

Betty Suarez was the hero of Ugly Betty, and we all watched her grow in confidence and integrity throughout the series. The role earned America Farrera a SAG and Golden Globe award. She’s also starred in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and another popular series, Superstore.

These days, Ferrera is trending for her role in the movie Barbie, which has earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

5 Perfect Pixie Cuts for Different Types of Hair

If there’s one haircut that’s for everyone, it has to be a pixie cut. No matter your face shape or your age, anyone can actually pull off a pixie cut. This hairstyle is also the best option for people struggling with thinning hair. There are many types of pixie cuts you can choose from depending on your style and preference. Here’s a guide to the best pixie hair for you, according to your hair type.

The Classix Pixie: For Straight Hair

People with straight hair can’t go wrong with the classic pixie cut. This look is perfect for adding volume to the top of your head and showing off your gorgeous features. From Princess Diana at the peak of her fame to Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, everyone has gone for this easy yet sassy hairdo.

A Pixie Shag: For Wavy Hair

Wavy hair, if well-maintained, is gorgeous and chic in itself. However, if you want to rock some cropped hair, the pixie shag is for you. It’s different from the classic pixie in terms of the length of the hair. Instead of tucking your hair behind the ear, here, your hair shows layers and has curtain bangs. A pixie shag needs no extra effort and is a wash and rush hairdo. You can hit it with hairspray for some volume, though.

An Undercut Pixie: For Loose Curls

Usually, people don’t like the blend of loose curls and short hair. But with an undercut pixie, this combination is perfect. An undercut is basically long hair at the front and shorter at the side. The rest is taken care of by your curly hair. Your hairstylist can actually customize the length of the sides depending on your face cut.

Close-Cropped Pixie: For Tight Curls

If you have beautiful curls, the best pixie cut for you is a close-cropped one. With the perfect length, you can choose to add a piece of accessory to take it up a notch. A headband, a scarf, or a barrette will not only escalate your cut but also enhance your curls.

The Platinum Pixie: For the Bold Type

If you want to take a risk and go for something bold and confident, the Platinum Pixie is the perfect fit for you. This pixie cut can be rocked by anyone and everyone, and Charlize Theon even hit a red-carpet event with this hairdo! A perfect, clean look that’ll make you look and feel like a boss!
