Nothing beats escaping the sweltering summer heat than catching a movie. Theaters are dark & cool & your favorite snacks are always at hand. And not only are they entertaining relief from the weather, movies keep us up to date on the latest styles & trends. Here’s a look back at some fun classics with hairstyles that made them memorable…
Celebrating its 20th anniversary this summer (can it be?) is pop culture sensation Clueless. We love everything about Beverly Hills teen queen Alicia Silverstone’s Cher, especially her luscious, long blonde hairstyle that looks as fresh today as it did two decades ago. For more about Clueless’s impact as a cultural barometer of the ‘90s, visit Vanity Fair.com
The Farrelly Brothers’ comedy hit There’s Something About Mary with Ben Stiller & Cameron Diaz undisputedly has one of the most infamous hair moments in movie history (yes, that one!). Stiller’s long suffering Ted greets the object of his desire, Mary – beach babe gorgeous with a sexy blonde bob – at his door & here it comes: “Is that hair gel?” 😛
One of the most famous on-screen couples of the 1970’s was Sandy & Danny, better known as Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta, in Grease. Their retro ‘dos rocked & rolled: Sandy’s bad girl, big blonde hair (actually more ‘70s than ’50s) & Danny’s perfect pompadour were made for each other. Fun fact: In August you can join in on the fun of this classic musical when Grease Sing-A-Long hits movie theaters nationwide; get your tickets at fathomevents.com.
And last but not least, how could this or any list be complete without a shout out to Uma Thurman’s iconic page boy in the ‘90s cult classic Pulp Fiction? Dangerously sleek & mysterious, her jet black bob was a declaration of unabashed sexual allure. Its razor’s edge angles secured this look’s status as one to go down in film noir beauty history.
