Hair is a collective noun (lots of things count as one, like sheep and sand) so we would say 


"Her hair looks beautiful." 


Similarly, her hair is red, her hair is long.

Your name is very similar to mine, so I thought I'd answer your question even though Sian has responded already!


She's right, it is: "Her hair is beautiful."
