One actress is bucking a longstanding Hollywood trend.

While other stars spend hours having their hair coifed prior to walking the 59th Primetime Emmy red carpet, Ali Larter will be readying herself by “going real.”

The “Heroes” actress and co-star of “Resident Evil: Extinction,” the third and final installment of the movie series that is based on the video game of the same name, is collaborating with Dove Hair Care and foregoing a professional hairstylist.

Instead, just like the average person, Larter will be doing her own hair for the event.

Her mission is to inspire women to start loving the hair they have and not comparing it to the unattainable images seen in the media and Hollywood.

Typically, a squadron of cosmetologists spends hours of glam-up time per star to achieve the results seen at red carpet events and photo shoots.

Of course, most folks are unaware of the extent to which the beauty brigades have teased, tugged, and twirled to attain the hot hairdos.

Unable to meet high hair expectations, countless viewers feel as though their self-esteem has been flat-ironed. Larter and Dove Hair Care are out to change that.

Interestingly, nearly 60 percent of women believe that the images in the media set the standard for beautiful hair, according to a recent survey done by Impulse Research.

Larter is getting the word out that “there is a lot of work that goes into Hollywood hair.”

“I am doing all of this to help women realize the potential of their own hair and feel more confident every day,” she adds.

Another Hollywood actress that appears to be for real is Amanda Bynes.

The talented young star has graced the small screen where she headlined a variety show called “All That,” had her own program, “The Amanda Show,” and tried her hand at comedy in a series called “What I Like About You.”

She’s made the feature film scene, too, and become a pin-up for teens with her convincing performances in movies like “She's the Man,” “Hairspray,” and her latest flick, “Sydney White,” a Snow White-goes-to-college tale.

Bynes even has her own line of fashion. The actress’ new clothing collection is called “Dear By Amanda Bynes” and is tailor-made for adolescents.

Adding to her appeal is the fact that Bynes has not gone on the party-circuit, not entered rehab and not had to pose for a mug shot.

Evidently, her values are not those typically associated with Tinseltown.

“I like being with my family and friends, and I don't need to be out at the clubs,” Bynes tells “Access Hollywood.”

“If you're hanging out with the partying people or your parents don't care, then it's going to be harder. For me, I'm really close with my parents,” the actress adds.

Bynes brings up the names of some of her famous peers when she talks with Contact Music, relaying that she has little in common with Lindsay, Paris, and Britney.

“We're only compared because of our age . . . I'm in no way in competition with them. I feel like I have a totally different thing,” Bynes says, which has moms and dads smiling along with their kids.
