Jessica Alba: Her Best Hair?

Published in: Hair, Just For Fun


Hark, a Dark Angel cometh, and she’s got bitchin’ hot hair!


Okay, so I just walked in the door from seeing Avatar (the 2D version… I KNOW! The theater was closer to home), and, yeah, I loved every minute of its FernGully-ish, eyeball-kissing spectacle. 🙂 That Jimmy James Cameron (Aliens, Terminators 1 and 2, The Abyss, True Lies, Titanic) sure has some science fiction film making chops, right?

Makes me wonder if Jessica Marie Alba (born April 28, 1981; NOTE: She doesn’t star in Avatar), when she learned back in 2000 that she’d been picked to star in Cameron’s short-lived Dark Angel TV series, thought, “OMG! I’m going to be taking orders from James Cameron!? How cool is this?”

I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that Jessica’s bad girl looks and lascivious locks had something to do with her getting the part. And yet she’s managed to maintain a strict no-nudity clause in her acting contracts throughout her career, once saying, “I don’t do nudity. I just don’t. Maybe that makes me a bad actress. Maybe I won’t get hired in some things. But I have too much anxiety.”

It didn’t stop her from taking the No. 1 spot on Maxim’s Hot 100 list in 2001, or’s list of the 99 Most Desirable Women of 2006.

I don’t know about any of that, but daaaayam, girl has some foine hair.

Which of Jessica's hairstyles do you like best?

    I think she looks the prettiest with hairstyle number two but number 1 looks awfully cute on her.

      Hi bluematilda,

      I didn’t mean to imply that Jessica stars in Avatar, but I see how it sounds that way now. Sorry about that. I just meant that she’s worked with James Cameron (lucky girl!). I’ll add a note to the post to clarify.

      You have a great year, too! I’m not sure about the ysl or guerlain swatches, but I’ll try. I haven’t seen them yet. Are they rad?

      • bluematilda says:

        very pretty…guerlain has a new formula for the rouge g, a more sheer version, and they have a new kiss kiss lipstick…strass i think? which is sheer with some sparkle….wants it!

    Aww, I used to watch Dark Angel! It was delightfully bad…

    She’s insanely pretty but she seems to have a knack for sticking her foot in her mouth! (I think she said something about being less hispanic than Cameron Diaz or something… I just remember it being a kerfluffle!)

    Karen!! you *NEED* to see it in 3d!!!! wasnt it amazing? i literally was speechless!

  6. I miss Dark Angel.
    1 & 2 look cute 🙂

    Every hairstyle are nice on her. I pick no.2 for the nice waves. I would prefer it with the same hair color as the picture no.7 .
