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?
