Talk about hands-on parenting! In the McConaughey home, Matthew is responsible for keeping the kids well groomed.

“[He’s] a great haircutter,” Camila McConaughey tells PEOPLE at the I.N.C. for Macy’s presentation of the Winter 2013 collection on Thursday. “He cuts really well … kids hair that is.”

Between son Levi, 5, daughter Vida, 3½, and youngest son Livingston, 10 months, the Dallas Buyers Club star, 43, — who wed Camila, 30, last year at their Austin, Texas property — has plenty of little ones to practice on.

“He’s actually the only one that cuts their hair,” she adds.

But when it comes to her own long, enviable locks, the model isn’t ready to give her husband free rein.

“He’d probably do a great job with it, but I’m not taking that chance,” she laughs, “But with the kids, he’s great.”

They may not share scissors, but Alves McConaughey says she and Matthew (who are both known for their curly manes) do bond over beauty routines. “We change up our hair products a lot. It’s good for you hair. Sometimes we share, sometimes we don’t. At home I use a little Moroccan oil.”

So what about the family’s style? The brand ambassador for Macy’s International Concepts says her go-to garb is the line’s boyfriend jeans. “They hug the right places. You want to make sure the butt looks good. Being from Brazil, that’s important.”

Alves McConaughey also adds that her eldest son Levi, is starting to get interested in fashion. “He dresses himself now. It’s pretty sweet actually.”

zoom- I think it’s just their hair type. They both have curly hair like their parents, and sometimes it’s hard to get curls looking “right” no matter how much you brush them!


Damn the kids hair..I want Camila’s hair it is gorgeous so shiny and healthy! Styled to perfection.
