Happy birthday, Salma Hayek! The Academy Award nominee turns 50 today and her complexion is as flawless as ever, leaving fans to wonder if the secret behind her ever-ravishing glow can be attributed to her namesake beauty line, Nuance Salma Hayek.
The Mexican-born actress recently executive produced and starred in Septembers of Shiraz, the story of a Jewish family caught in the crosshairs of the Iranian revolution, but not every one of her projects is quite so serious: Hayek lent her voice to this summer’s hilarious Sausage Party, and stars alongside Alec Baldwin in the upcoming Drunk Parents.
Hayek finds inspiration in the strong roles she chooses (remember Frida and Ugly Betty?), always being mindful to fight for equal rights, especially as they pertain to women. We’d say she’s a pretty incredible role model to Valentina Paloma Pinault, her mini-me 8-year-old daughter with fashion executive husband, François-Henri Pinault.
Take a look at her transformation through the years and celebrate the lovely lady’s big day.
The natural stunner achieved fame in her native Mexico on the soap opera, Teresa.
Salma let her curls go wild-and starred with Antonio Banderas in Desperado.
The star tamed her curls for the From Dusk Till Dawn premiere, adding a raspberry lip and bold brows.
The Fools Rush In star had the perfect take on a topper. “I love that the tiara is far back on her head,” hairstylist Brad Johns said of the updo. “It’s sleek.”
In honor of her role in 54, Salma wore a disco-ready crimped mane and major lashes.
Although she produced and took the title role in Frida, her subtle makeup and streamlined half-updo were far from the theatrical styles worn by her character.

The new mom and Ugly Betty producer brought her A-game to Cannes with a crown of braids and cat-eye liner.
“She wanted a change, and that was the purpose and the reason,” hairstylist Robert Vetica said of the 30 Rock guest star’s chin-length bob. “Salma’s had this style before and it just suits her so well-it’s a great length, it frames her face, and it’s not too short or too long.”
Now Salma Hayek Pinault, the Grown Ups actress hit the Cannes red carpet alongside husband Francois-Henri Pinault. Her look? A high-glam updo, matte red lips and defined arches.

For a dinner in Italy, Hayek debuted a festive, sophisticated take on a classic beehive.
“I was inspired by the dramatic design and shimmering black in [her Gucci] gown, and wanted to create a look that was reminiscent of Hollywood’s Film Noir period, but very modern,” Moroccanoil Global Brand Ambassador Robert Vetica said of Hayek Pinault’s locks. “The hair was long, glamorous and luxurious, and we added a bit of length for the night to complement the noir feeling.”
Hayek Pinault went retro at the Venice Film Festival.
For the N.Y.C. premiere of Here Comes The Boom, Hayek Pinault opted for natural curls and a creamy brick red lipstick.
