Everyone remembers this Gone In 60 Seconds, right? Well you should, there are awesome cars, a bit of illegal activity, and Angelina Jolie looking great with platinum blonde hair as the character Sara ‘Sway’ Wayland. And more than that she has it styled with sort-of faux twisted dreads that are super edgy for when the movie was made.
The new MTV show The Shannara Chronicles joins several other new post-apolyctitpical dystopian future style science fiction and fantasy shows like The 100, Into The Badlands, and Vikings. I’m, obviously, eating it up because I love just about all fantasy shows that aren’t disastrously terrible; and thus far, it’s been a great immersive and cinematic experience getting into a new worlds mythos. While it still has the feel of a CW teen drama, mtv seems to be pushing a bit on the limits of nudity, and the show will hopefully get a bit grittier as the season progresses.
If you haven’t seen StarWars The Force Awakens yet, you should. Then you should read this. Anyhow, Daisy Ridley, one of the stars of the new Star Wars movie (Episode VII The Force Awakens), rocks an interesting and functional tri-knot hairstyle. Obviously, her predecessors (Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia) hair was a unique hairstyle all it’s own with the ear covering giant buns. Rey’s hairstyle is more functional and less regal. Which makes sense for the movie plot, not knowing where she really comes from, and living essentially abandoned as an orphan. But it is functional and stylish. Almost like a samurai warriors topknot, just for longer hair that isn’t undercut. And so I call it a triple knot, not triple bun, because it’s really not a bun style.
In The Huntsman Winter’s War, and after helping Snow White defeat Ravenna in the previous movie Snow White and The Huntsman, Eric must save everyone again. This time with the help of his forbidden lover the warrior Sara played by Jessica Chastain. And it’s not just defeating the evil queen Ravenna but also her sister Freya the ice queen. Charlize Theron again has a stunning Queen’s style complete with great hair styles and a beautiful gold crown like she has in the previous movie The Huntsman. Check out all 4 characters great hair.
Given the impending release of the new Star Wars movies, I thought I’d re-watch the first six and pick out a bunch of the amazing hairstyles the character designers and stylists imagined. The first movie is an ideal place to start with Natalie Portman’s seriously epic hairstyles as the Queen or the Naboo people and in contrast her styles as the Queen’s handmaiden, Padmé.
The Queen obviously needs a bit of an ostentatious style that her position and the gaggle of hand maidens affords. Even though this isn’t practical for real life, some of the styles are super cool. Maybe inspiration for a halloween or themed costume party?
I can’t for the third season of The 100 starting on March 28, 2016. The photos that have come out already show season three will add more badass braided hairstyles
Jodelle Ferland’s hair color is pretty cool in the new syfy series Dark Matter (based on a graphic novel of the same name). Jodelle, Number 5, is so far the outlier on the show. Not a wanted (alleged) criminal like the others. It seems like Dark Matter as a whole is trying for a Firefly kind of feel, but I’m not convinced of Jodelles character being weird enough, maybe I just don’t believe the acted indifference (as I did with Serenity) to the strange dreams and technical curiosity. Anyhow, her blue and green hairstyles is a super cool look for dark wavy hair.
Emilia Clarke’s hair in Game of Thrones Season 5 is looking great. Having dragons like Daenerys Targaryen would probably make anyone look awesome. Check out the fly around gif of her hairstyle in the latest episode. Braided hair is all the rage these days in movies and tv shows. From Katheryn Winnick in Vikings to Marie Avgeropoulos and the “grounders” in The 100. But who has the time for all that? Well when you do here’s some more classy braid inspiration for when you feel like a queen or the mother of dragons.
Lagertha’s Hairstyle in Vikings is super cool all the time. I guess you need bad-ass hair to be a shield maiden. Anyway, the side-braid is so hot right now, like the shaved side undercut that Natalie Dormer made look so hot, but without having to shave the side of your head. And Katheryn Winnick adds all kinds of flair and variations to the braids that makes her look like she is Viking royalty. Must have been nice to not have internet and smartphones so you can sit around and get your hair braided for hours every day.
Queen Elsa Braided hairstyle tutorial! About time I put up something about Frozen, now that it’s over a year old and the highest grossing animated movie of all time. Lets state with Queen Elsa and her more casual look with long braided hair. We’ll get to the crown up-do in another post.
