“People say it’s a difficult hairstyle to pull off, but I don’t see how it is tricky,” the Once Upon a Time star told PEOPLE on Thursday at the Young Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles.
“I have very curly hair and I straighten it every day — it takes maybe two minutes. I can’t imagine anyone having a bigger challenge than I do in the kinkiness that is my crazy ‘fro,” she added.
Aside from how easy the ‘do is to manage, Goodwin said the hairstyle lets her be more flexible when it comes to fashion.
“I can wear far more with short hair than I could when I had [long] hair,” she said while donning a white lace Monique Lhuillier dress. “Everything goes with short hair. It’s bananas.”
The style-savvy starlet also named some designers she’s currently loving. “I’m very excited about what Jason Wu has coming out,” Goodwin revealed. “I’ve been fairly impressed with Jonathan Saunders, and I’ve been wearing a whole lot of [the line]. I think the same about Preen as well.”
Added the actress, who wore bright pink lipstick and said she’s a fan of the neon trend, “The fashion industry is growing and changing and taking risks. I’m excited about all of the shapes and colors.”
