There’s something to be said about a breezy style that looks as if it came straight from the beach. We loved how Yvonne Strahovski’s hair maintained a carefree feel without looking too messy. “We wanted the perfect summer hairdo to kick off this season,” said the star’s hairstylist Luke Chamberlain. “What better than some sexy beachy waves?” To create the most natural texture possible, Chamberlain used a one-inch curling iron to form a slight wave, loosely twisting small sections around the barrel. He then misted on a dry shampoo to impart a matte finish and amp up the volume. A spritz of beach wave spray ensured a uniform texture throughout her hair. If your strands have the tendency to fall flat, apply mousse to your roots while your hair is still wet, then blow it out using your fingers and a wide tooth comb. “This technique leads to more volume at the ends, as well as a relaxed texture,” Chamberlain added.

Australians wow Hollywood
Yvonne Strahovski in Naeem Khan
Chuck actress Yvonne Strahovski won the Breakthrough Award, and scored red-carpet props for her Naeem Khan gown.
With Chuck and that loyal gaggle of Nerd Herders behind her, Yvonne Strahovski has (as previously reported) set her sights on a killer role in Dexter‘s upcoming seventh season.
Unfortunately, as is typical with the Showtime saga, details surrounding the guest spot are being kept under wraps. That didn’t, however, stop the bubbly actress from gushing to TVLine about her new gig on Wednesday night, at the Australian Breakthrough Awards (where she was an honoree).
“I feel very lucky to have come from Chuck, and then gone straight into a movie, I, Frankenstein, and then to something completely different again with Dexter,” Strahovski said of her transition from one cult fave to another.
“Dexter is respected for the quality of work that the actors and the writers and everybody brings to that show,” she continued, praising the series she now calls home. “It’s just really nice to be part of something that’s so celebrated in this industry.”
As for how her mystery lady plays into Dexter‘s slice-n-dicey world, Strahovski was careful not to show her hand (or even one card) just yet. She did tease, cagily, that her character, Hannah McKay, is “a woman who is haunted by her past, and [becomes] involved in solving a murder through Dexter.”
And why exactly is she so beneficial in aiding such an investigation? Laughed Strahovski, “That is a mystery that I cannot reveal!” (With reporting by Vlada Gelman)
On Wednesday, Showtime announced that the Comic-Con panel for their flagship series will be held on Thursday, July 12 in Ballroom 20, and will feature special guest star Yvonne Strahovski along with Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, and executive producers John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton, and Scott Buck. The first two minutes of season 7 will be shown off, as will a special world-exclusive trailer for the second season of “Homeland” (which will follow “Dexter” on the schedule beginning Sunday, September 30).
One of our favorite ladies is returning to TV…and in a dangerous new role, no less!
Chuck badass Yvonne Strahovski has joined season seven of Dexter in a multi-episode arc, Showtime announced today...
Strahovski, who played Chuck's one true love Sarah Walker on the NBC action-comedy for five seasons, has been cast on Dexter's new season as Hannah McKay.
The character, which we first reported on in a previous Spoiler Chat, is described as a strong, sexy independent force of nature who has a shaky past she's trying to put behind her…until she meets Dexter (Michael C. Hall).
A turn of events leads Hannah to join forces with Miami Metro Homicide to solve old cases, and Dexter finds himself drawn to her mysterious nature. Is there a romantic entanglement ahead? Possibly. Something tells us Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) will not be a huge fan of Hannah. Of course she just found out her adopted bro is a serial killer, so she might have other things on her mind.
Dexter, which began production last week, premieres Sunday, September 30 on Showtime.
Excited for Yvonne to be back on your TV, hopefully kicking ass again? What do you expect from her mysterious new character Hannah?
Talk about killer casting:Chuck MVP Yvonne Strahovskiis joining Dexter‘s upcoming seventh season for a multi-episode arc.

As a turn of events leads Miami Metro Homicide to ask for her help in solving some old cases, Dexter works with her and begins to wonder if there’s more to this woman than she’s professed.
