It’s no small feat replicating Frida Kahlo’s iconic trenzas… But that’s exactly what Mexican hairstylist Beatrice De Alba did when Salma Hayek starred as the Mexican artist in Frida. And De Alba was rewarded for her hair and makeup efforts, winning the Academy Award for Best Makeup at the 75thAcademy Awards with makeup artist John E. Jackson. De Alba has most recently served as a hairstylist on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, Lindsay Lohan’s Liz & Dick television movie and the now shooting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
