Lea Michele is one of the hardest-working performers in show business. Whether she’s starring as Rachel Berry on Glee, rocking a glamorous look on the red carpet, recording her solo album, or acting as the spokesperson for L’Oréal, Lea is the ultimate multitasker. She knows better than anyone that it is difficult to be your best self and keep things in perspective when your to-do list is overflowing and you are faced with challenges, so she’s developed a foolproof system for remaining healthy and centered.
In Brunette Ambition—an illustrated book that’s part memoir, part how-to, and part style guide—Lea reveals the lessons and advice that have worked for her, from how she keeps comfortable on the red carpet and maintains flawless hair and makeup all night, to how she stays motivated to work out (even when she just wants to sit on the couch!). Lea shares her favorite recipes—for the hair masque she uses to restore fried ends, the comfort soup she eats to unwind on Sundays, the vegan grilled cheese she indulges in when she wants a treat, and many more. Most important, she reflects on the ways she remains grounded, centered, and true to who she is.
Filled with never-before-seen photos and revealing anecdotes, Brunette Ambition is the book Lea wishes she’d had when she was younger: a practical and inspirational guide to harnessing tenacity and passion and living the fullest life.
