New York, NY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–January 7, 2003–Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek and Shakira are among the celebrities who top People en Español’s first-ever “Best and Worst Celebrity Hairstyles” issue, which hits newsstands today. From the super straight to the wildly curly, romantically tousled and downright colorful, the picture-filled issue proves that today’s hottest Hispanics know the key to making headlines.
Featured in the “best” category is Spanish actress Cruz, who traded in her super-long locks, for a much sleeker and shorter bob this year. Other winners include Oscar contender Hayek, who continued to seduce co-stars with her long sultry mane, and model turned actress Sofia Vergara whose silky strands are set to hit the big screen this spring.
Among those who didn’t make the “cut” are Grammy winner Colombian rocker Shakira, who shocked her fans – and record executives – by changing her signature tresses from vampire black to vixen red to beach-girl blonde. Diaz – a trendsetter in Tinseltown and beyond, also got the thumbs down, with her “straight out of bed” ‘do at last year’s Academy Awards.
The February issue also features celebrity makeovers – Then & Now – showcasing the beauty transformations of Miami’s Gloria Estefan and TV host and model Daisy Fuentes. Former weather girl, Fuentes, who began her career with dark frizzy curls, now sports the lighter, sleeker, frizz-free style. Throughout the years, Estefan fluctuated between super straight and corkscrew curly; today she wears both styles, updated and sexier than ever.
Other celebrities included in the issue are Kelly Rolland, Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim and Salsa singer Celia Cruz, who all chose individuality over run-of-the-mill styles with multiple hair colors, shocking extensions and infamous wigs. In addition, the “Best & Worst Hairstyles” highlights hairstyles of today’s leading telenovelas stars.
