5 minutes, 5 questions with angela kinsey

Have you seen those cute and funny Clairol Nice 'n Easy Root Touch Up commercials featuring Gigi, your hair color Guardian Girlfriend?

Well, that's actress Angela Kinsey who is best known for her eponymous role on TV’s Emmy-award-winning comedy The Office.

I recently had the chance to interview her and was thrilled that she took some time out of her uber busy schedule to answer some questions.

So without further you go...

First off, what's it like being on one of the most hilarious shows on television?

I feel incredibly fortunate to work with such an amazing group of people. We really do have a blast together. Honestly, there are no egos on set – everyone on set is just good people. I get to wake up every day and look forward to coming to work. And my daughter gets to come to the set too!

Can you tell us a little about Gigi, the character you play on those fabulous Clairol Nice n' Easy commercials?

Gigi is short for Guardian Girlfriend. Gigi is everyone’s favorite girlfriend who holds your hand every step of the way when you’re coloring your hair at home. She knows exactly how to help you get beautiful-looking hair color and feel good about the process. She’s a fun straight-talker that always has her friends’ best interests in mind when giving advice. She’s Nice ‘n Easy’s biggest fan, pops in to help with a hair color issue, solve it and then is off on her merry little way. Oh, and she is a little klutzy just like me!

I think all of us have had a bad hair moment at some point. Did you ever have a moment where you wished that you had a Gigi in your life?

Yes, after I had my daughter, Isabel, I was exhausted trying to figure out, like most moms, how to balance my career with my new life! Every time the baby was asleep and I had some time, I found myself saying, "I can shower, check emails or eat…hmm what to do?" Showering was definitely the first thing to go and I had mastered the ponytail, but not that cute bouncy one you see in magazines, it was the real-life greasy one. Looking back to those first few months, I wish I had Gigi to help me leave the house looking put-together!

What's in your makeup bag right now?

Lancome foundation and powder, Lancome Juicy Tube lip gloss, CoverGirl Lash Blast, Victoria Secret Very Sexy Blush/Highlighter Duo (Blush Pink), Olay Active Hydrating Cream (Original).

What's your favorite beauty tip?

Well I actually do use Nice ‘n Easy Root Touch-Up in my daily life. It is an awesome in-between fixer when you can't get into a salon. I have to keep my hair color very light while we are filming The Office and I am lucky I have people to help me do that but when I am on hiatus I would rather be at home with my daughter. Finding the time to go to the salon can be tough and I love using Nice ‘n Easy Root Touch-Up for a quick fix. It is also great to take with you on a long trip. Another favorite tip; I love to go on long walks with my makes me happy. And I think when you are happy it shows in the way you look.

And if you didn't think that I was going to add one of her sooooo do not know me.
