Danielle Moinet (WWE Superstar!) Interview!

Sophisticate’s Exclusive Interview!

danielle moinet 1

You might recognize Danielle Moinet as the well-known, gorgeous WWE Superstar “Summer Rae,” a blonde baddie who has proven she is a force to be reckoned with in the ring. But when she’s not heating up your television screen, she’s everyday gorgeous Danielle, a North Carolina peach with an eye for fashion and the most luxurious golden tresses we’ve ever seen! In an exclusive Sophisticate’s interview, the star shares how she stays so haute…

danielle moinet 3Sophisticate’s: How do you like to wear your hair day to day?
Danielle: I’m so boring when it comes to my hair! My mom is a hairdresser in North Carolina so I’ve always been very fortunate and she’s always helped me. When it comes to my hair, I almost don’t know how to do it well. I usually wear it straight; I blow-dry it and it’s stick straight.

Sophisticate’s: What’s your go-to hairstyle?
Danielle: Every girl wants the opposite of what they have so I want nice, beachy waves whenever I get my hair and makeup done. Nothing too done, effortless.

Sophisticate’s: Are you a natural blonde?
Danielle: Yes. I’m very blonde! In the summer, my hair is crazy beach-blonde.

danielle moinet 4Sophisticate’s: Your hair is so long and lush! Do you wear extensions?
Danielle: This is all my hair. I play a bad guy with WWE and having long, blonde natural hair makes people hate me even more. I think I attribute that to why my hair is so healthy and why I have so much of it, because my mom never let me put extensions in. When I’m on WWE and a piece of my hair comes out, it’s my hair and it’s a killer.

Sophisticate’s: Where do you get most of your hair inspiration?
Danielle: Mostly Instagram. Most of the people I follow are makeup artists or hair people [or] bloggers for clothes. Women are such visual people, and that’s why Instagram speaks so well to women.

danielle moinet 5Sophisticate’s: What are some of your favorite hair products?
Danielle: I’ve always been a Matrix Biolage girl. I have a lot of breakage from my line of work and I wear my hair in a ponytail, so one oil that I’m obsessed with at night is [the] Biolage Matrix Exquisite Oil Protective Treatment Moringa Blend. And also a new product I started using is Nioxin.

Sophisticate’s: Tell us about “Summer Rae’s” iconic look.
Danielle: I wear my hair down like most of the girls.

Sophisticate’s: How does your beauty routine differ from when you’re on television versus when you’re at home?
Danielle: At home I’m in workout clothes and no makeup, lathered in serums and creams [and] I just pull my hair back. [For] TV it’s glammed to the nines, tons of makeup and you sweat so much.

Sophisticate’s: What are a few beauty products you cannot live without?
Danielle: The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I fill my brows in and I use all Anastasia Beverly Hills products. And I always use a pressed powder; my new favorite, and all of the WWE girls’ favorite, too, [is] called Coty Airspun.

danielle moinet 6Sophisticate’s: How would you describe your personal style?
Danielle: My personal style can be very casual…or it’s glam. I love getting dressed up, getting glammed up. Nasty Gal is a great store because you can go casual with them or super glam. I also love Alice + Olivia [and] J Brand and Rag & Bone for pants.

Sophisticate’s: Which celebrity’s closet would you love to raid?
Danielle: Carrie Underwood. I love her style! She loves her legs and a lot of times she’ll wear a dress that’s super covered up on the top, but super leggy and that’s how I am. I love my legs; that’s my weapon of choice when I’m in the ring. She has a great casual style as well; jeans and boots. I love her, and whenever she hosts the CMAs or any of the award shows, she always nails her red-carpet look.

Sophisticate’s: What’s you advice to younger girls who look up to you?
Danielle: With life…you never know what’s going to happen, just do what makes you happy. No one is going to live your life for you; you have to be the one who motivates you. The worst thing that can happen is you can fail. If you do, who cares? Pick something else.
