Women Want Jessica Alba's Hairstyle More Than Any Other Celebrity

"Fantastic Four" Star Is #1 Beauty Icon According to BeautyRiot.com July User Statistics

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2005 -- Women want Jessica Alba's hairstyle more than any other celebrity's, according to July user statistics from BeautyRiot.com (www.beautyriot.com). Jessica Alba, Jessica Simpson and Ashlee Simpson drew the most interest from women seeking hairstyles and makeup inspiration and ideas, measured by user stats from the celebrity beauty and hairstyles Web site in May 2005.

Out of more than 300 different celebrity hairstyles available to view and print, Jessica Alba's long, brown, honey-highlighted 'do was the most popular among BeautyRiot's over 500,000 July visitors. The "Fantastic Four" star's hairstyle pictures made up over 10% of the site's total page views. Jessica Simpson came in at second place, and her sister Ashlee Simpson was number three. Ashlee Simpson's famous black shag hairstyle, notably, was the third most visited page on the Web site in July.

"Jessica Alba represents the new non-traditional beauty," said BeautyRiot.com's editor in chief, Kirsten Lambertsen. "Her appearance as the number one Beauty Icon signals a trend towards a lower-maintenance, more nonchalant, self-confident look for women. Angelina Jolie and Eva Mendes are other examples of this persona."

Among BeautyRiot.com's remaining Beauty Icons, fourth place went to Hilary Duff making her first appearance on the list, and Nicole Richie also made her debut coming in fifth. Statistics were gathered from over 500,000 users and over seven million page views at BeautyRiot.com in July 2005.
