Finally, hair color is a consideration that has to be approached carefully. Miss Jolie has a
wonderfully rich, olive skin tone, which gives her a natural glow and works well with her dark hair. Color for her is usually
best served in subtle highlights and in shades of warm, medium-to-dark browns. Shown in image 8 is a thankfully short-lived excursion
into life as a blonde, which we can see was not a successful proposition as it left her complexion appearing sallow and jaundiced.
The base colors of Miss Jolie’s natural hair color obviously result in a brassy result, with the blonde coming out too
Of course, the skin tone Miss Jolie has does mean that she can support a darker hair color
easily. And as this photo shows, she can support the darker color much more readily than she can the blonde shades. Even so, note
how the darker color makes her skin tone look much paler than the more brown tones do.
I have considered Jessica Alba to be one of the more inherently beautiful young women in
Hollywood for quite some time. This is an opinion apparently shared by many others given that she has appeared on countless
lists of “Sexiest”, “Hottest”, “Desirable” and “Most Beautiful” women in magazines all over the world. Her exotic look is courtesy
of her parents. Her father is Mexican and her mother is of French and Danish descent.
Many of Jessica’s fans are most familiar with her long dark-haired look. The rich, chocolate
brown color is ideal for her skin tone (obviously given it is her natural color). In image 1 we see Jessica with her long, wavy brown
I must say, personally, I think that Jessica makes most of the errors in her choice of look
by either trying to (or being talked into thinking that she can) be blonde. She has been seen in several instances with a hair
color choice that is much too light for her skin tone and eyes. For example, photo 2 shows how wrong she looks with blonde
In spite of the fact that many of the color jobs are beautifully executed and look natural,
the color still seems “wrong” on Jessica. Photo 3 is an example of what I mean. The color isn’t too blonde, and is warm and doesn’t
wash out her skin tone, but her eyes are simply too dark to support the idea that she is a natural blonde.
Of course, color isn’t the only area where the look can go wrong. While Jessica has a
lovely, well-proportioned face, she must be careful to avoid styles that make her face appear disproportioned. In photo 4 we see her hair styled
in and up-style that makes her forehead appear too wide and too high:
She is better served by up-styles that more evenly distribute the bulk of the hair, or keep
the volume low in the upper portions of the head, as shown in photo 5 and 6.
