Actress Teri Hatcher is following in the footsteps of her co-star Eva Longoria by signing a deal to represent Clairol's Nice 'n Easy hair colour.

Hatcher is the new spokesmodel for the hair product, while her Desperate Housewives colleague Longoria appears in advertisements for L'Oreal Elvive shampoo.

Hatcher says, "In all my career, in my ups and downs, I've never had a beauty campaign. This was meaningful that at almost 41 years old, I could be getting my first beauty campaign."

The actress has previously admitted she has fought grey hair since the tender age of 25.
