Favorite Hair Flicks
Apr 3rd, 2003 at 8:55pm
 
Which movies are your favorite "hair flicks"?  I remember when I was a kid and saw Zeffirelli's "Romeo and Juliet" I absolutely fell in love with Olivia Hussey's hair and I still think she is one of the most beautiful women to have ever walked the face of the earth (whatever happened to her, anyway?).  

The much more recent "Anna and the King" had Jody Foster sporting some killer hairstyles that you know she has only dreamed of in real life... and there's a mistake in the film where her hair is different in two parts of the same scene, though I'm probably the only person on earth who noticed *that* :P

The musical version of the movie, "The King and I" had Deborah Kerr sporting some pretty updos, too.

Then of course there's "Interview with a Vampire" in which Brad Pitt and Antonio Banderas have never looked better ;)

And how could you possibly ignore Wind in His Hair in "Dances with Wolves"?  Gorgeous!

I'm sure I'm missing tons... anyone have any other favs?

Does anybody like "Sex and the City"? Sarah Jessica Parker sometimes wears really pretty updos, classical knots and buns which look very simple but I never can get the same effect trying to do it by myself  ???
I am also a fan of the looks of Nell Porter, the blonde lawyer in "Ally McBeal" (donīt know her real name).
All historical movies are great for elaborate hairstyles but who can wear it in real life? Therefore I like this modern styles.

I don't like Sarah Jessica Parker's hair when she leaves it down. I have never seen her hair up! I guess I haven't seen enough episodes (I'm not allowed to watch "Sex and the City" anymore, hmph).

Love Nicole Kidman's hair! Debra Messing also has lovely curls in "Will and Grace."

I think Olivia Hussey (if I'm thinking of the right "Romeo and Juliet") became a drug addict...

Speaking of "Charmed" (my favorite show  Tongue!) Holly Marie Combs (Piper) has the most gorgeous long hair! It must be nearing waist length now!

Brahm Stokers "Dracula"  the old count as he floats down stairs has an incredable do and pony tail...I keep trying to duplicate but I haven't quite figured it out yet.

"Gone With the Wind" also has some great styles on Vivian Leigh and Olivia Dehavalind (sp?).

What about the princess in Shrek....she has pretty hair too Smiley.  That opens up another whole can of worms...animated hair.

Back on the origional Star Trek there was a female ensign that had an up do that was woven in a basket weave in the front only...I still think that is cool.

So many movies and TV shows and so many styles to admire...to bad most of them involve wigs and hair pieces and too much pain to try to duplicate in "real life".
What are we to do! : 8)

Does anyone remember Queen Amidalaīs (Nataly Portman) style with the two "horns" on both sides of her head? I have seen it in ethnological books, it is a look worn by some mongolian tribes!

I totally forgot about those hair styles from "Star Wars" what about Leah's styles from the first couple of movies?

Those funny "honey buns" over her ears Smiley.  I had to wear my hair like that for a fashion show and I can tell you from experience...that style is not comfortable and it plays with your hearing too...

Since I'm named after her, I had to do Princess Leia a few times. This was when I was younger so I couldn't really do the buns myself, but I got them done and could hardly hold my head up haha! Princess Leia is very famous for this style.

I like the red-headed daughter's hair in "Grounded for Life" and I get lots of styles ideas from her!

I had recently looked to Tyne Daly of the Judging Amy show as a role model for an older woman with long hair (and not colored either).  I was saddened by the recent episode where her fiance died (as the actor had died) and she cut her hair to a short bob.  The short style is "cute", but I REALLY liked her long hair, especially when she wore it in braids.

I know what you mean about Tyne Daly's hair. It was fab. I cried when she cut it. I loved the way she wore it. I would love to get my hands on some of her clips etc.

As far as great movie hair, Helena Bonham Carter in A Room with a View. Any period films like Sense and Sensibility, Wings of a Dove, Much, oh my gosh..Braveheart! Both Mel and his loves!  I sometimes just watch my collection of those types of videos just for ideas. It is nice to see older women in these films also have lovely styles. Even though they probably helped with hair pieces, they have great accessories. I love accessories. When I decided not to cut my hair ever again, except for bi-yearly trims to keep it healthy, I gave my self permission to spend money on pretty, good quality accessories. I love that photo of Melissa Milano with the updo and flower. I should use more flowers!

Ah yes... Glenn Close in Hamlet!  That huge wonderful braid.  And Angela Lansbury in Samson and Delilah... she had a wonderful long red braid in that one.
