Malin Akerman was born in Stockholm but she grew up in Canada. Her story isn’t one of instant success but of perseverance and hard work. She started at an early age of five as a child model with small gigs and commercials until she won the prestigious Ford Supermodel Contest in Canada at the age of seventeen. This prompted her to pursue a career in acting showcasing her natural blond hair that complements her natural Swedish features. One of her earliest gigs was a commercial back in 1997 for Noxzema where she was played a drive-thru waitress that has her blond hair up in a simple bun.
It was a bit of a struggle for her at the start with only small roles and guest appearances on TV while she was in Canada so she moved to Los Angeles to fully dive into the life of an actress. Her struggles continued there and for a while, she worked as a waitress while she went to hundreds of auditions. When she was 20 years old, she made her film debut as a simple blond unnamed co-ed student in the movie “The Skulls”.
She continued to work hard and kept getting small roles here and there. Just as when she was thinking of moving back home, she landed a major supporting role in the HBO series “The Comeback”. She played the character of Juna that has long and tousled blond hair with gorgeous beach waves. This role opened up a lot of opportunities for her and she was finally getting decent offers. For a time, she became the lead singer of the rock band Ozono wherein she rocked the stage wearing short skirts and tousled blond hair with black streaks.
She moved on from her band and continued her acting career. This is the time when she got into the romantic comedy genre and her career blossomed. She became known as the quirky blond lady from “Heartbreak Kid” and “27 Dresses”. She eventually got her biggest role in “The Watchmen” where she wowed the audience with her acting chops and long brown hair with blunt bangs.
Malin Akerman is now a seasoned actress and a mom with millions of adoring fans. She revealed one of her hair secrets to Us Magazine in an interview saying that she stands by second-day hair. “Second-day hair is great. I love a messy head and kind of that bed-head sexy look.” Aside from this messy hairstyle, she has also shown a lot of different variations to her naturally blond hair.
