We could all learn a few things from Freida Pinto. She's active in philanthrophy, has acting chops to boot, and her updos her award-worthy. Click through to see 10 of her best off-the-shoulder hairstyles as she celebrates her 29th birthday today.
On the 2009 SAG Awards red carpet, Freida wore a sleek, tucked-under ponytail that was adorned with a sparkling hair tie. Neutral cheeks and lips, along with a gown-matching lavender shadow, completed her look.
In 2010, Freida tried on short hair for a short while, wearing a faux bob at the Miral movie premiere.
This braided hairstyle at the Immortals premiere was another winning moment for Freida. Her subtle makeup palette further accentuated her prettily plaited coif.
Her hair had a vintage flair at the 2011 London Film Festival, where she wore a sassy swoop and a flush of coral on cheeks and lips.
At the Golden Globe Awards in 2012, Freida forewent her typical upsweep for a half-up hairstyle, but we can still consider that an pseudo-updo, right?
Freida added a black silk headband to her style at the Cosmopolitan Fun Fearless Men and Women of 2012 event. Her typical smudged eyeliner was more concentrated for a graphite-toned look.
Even though it seems Freida has a preference for off-the-neck hairstyles, this half upsweep, which she wore to a 2012 Nylon celebration, is a thing of envy.
A ponytail may be one of the most basic updos around, but most people need extensions to get Freida's extralong pony from Cannes 2013.
Even though she has locked down her signature look, Freida still keeps it interesting. She wore a crown of braids at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, an unexpected move that had our jaws dropping (in a good way).
Usually, Freida sticks to a neutral palette, but she turned on her sultry side with a cherry red lipstick and smoky eye on the Jeune & Jolie red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.
