Jessica Alba turns 34 today, so we’ve decided to mark the occasion by rounding up her best hair and beauty looks. We’ve managed to whittle it down to five (which is harder than it looks when you’re as beautiful as Jessica); here are our top picks:
With this hair Jessica has managed to achieve that ever so tricky look; tousled locks that look like you’ve come straight from the beach – bypassing any sign of frizz on the way. A texturising spray is crucial for achieving this kind of look; we love Schwarzkopf’s got2b Beach Matt Texturizing Salt Spray. The soft waves frame her face, and with the addition of those fluttery lashes – we’re sold.
There’s nothing like a bleached brow to totally alter the way you look. Jessica debuted this look at The Met Ball in 2013, adhering to the ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ theme. The lack of eyebrow immediately draws attention to her glimmering eye makeup, as well as those interesting ear cuffs.
Jessica does her best Danny Zuko impression with lofty quiff, popped collar and bold brows. Her deep brown eyes are highlighted in shades of gold eyeshadow, and the glossy lips ensure attention remains on the hair. We don’t know many women who could carry off this style, so applause is in order.
If you’ve tired of red lips, how about trying a vibrant orange? The colour pop makes teeth appear whiter, and gives a monochrome outfit that lift; try Clarins’ Joli Rouge lipstick in Orange Fizz for some intensity. With such a bright colour, there’s no need to do anything fancy with your hair; make like Jessica and sweep your hair into a low side ponytail.
Slick and Sleek Low Bun
There’s nothing chicer than a low ballerina bun. Slicked back tight to the nape of the neck, with not a flyaway to be seen, Jessica complements this hairdo with classic makeup – a pink glossy lip and a charcoal grey smokey eye.
