Check Out Eva Mendes's Crazy Curly Hairdo

We thought perms were a thing of the past (we’re not the only ones who tried the treatment in the ’90s, right?). But Eva Mendes is bringing back the style … at least for her latest role.

She plays a woman with seriously tight curls in the HBO film Clear History (also starring Kate Hudson and Jon Hamm). The somewhat wild ringlets are seemingly highlighted, hitting the star at her shoulders. And when we spotted this shot of her on location in Rockport, Mass., we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves.

The curly look is a major departure from Mendes’s usual soft and feminine hairstyle, which she either wears wavy and voluminous or straightened. And while the actress probably doesn’t need us to tell her, we just want to go on record saying that as soon as she’s done shooting, she should go back to her natural hair. Tell us: What do you think of Mendes’s ultra-curly ‘do?

I think her hair looks FABULOUS!! People Mag, my hair is naturally like that & I don’t think it’s a CRAZY look at all. Shame on you for putting a negative spin on it.

Cyn on

Wow, way to hate on the curls. My hair is naturally curly, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Eva’s were, too. Your Eurocentric idea of beauty is borderline racist.

Krista on

I agree with Dani & Cyn. I have natural curls that look JUST like this and I love my curls. They set me apart in a world of flat-ironed boring hair. She looks great. Curls rock!

Bekki on

She looks great, so Im sure she gets ready in a short time. Great hair Chica.. on
