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. (more…)
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. (more…)
The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis is an amazing atmospheric phenomenon created by the collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere. Variations in color are due to the type of gas particles that are colliding… But now this super cool northern lights effect of dancing colors been transferred, in style and color, to peoples hairstyles. And it looks freakin’ amazing. (more…)
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. (more…)
Vikings season 4 is going to be great! Just from the season 4 teaser we can already see Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) is going to continue to have all sorts of amazing hairstyles. Let’s be honest, she’s the most bad-ass person on the show as a warrior, mother, and earl it’s amazing she has any time for her hair at all. Bjorn Lothbrok (Ragnar’s oldest son played by Alexander Ludwig) looks like he’s going to play a more central role in the upcoming season, and become way more awesome of a character with some large chest and body tattoos.
Focusing on all the most amazing hairstyles from movies and tv shows all the time isn’t healthy. The actors have an army of stylists making them look incredible for every scene. So to give us a bit of a reality check when our own hair isn’t perfect and to remind us about how much worse it could be (even sports celebrities have shit hair). Here are some of the worst hairstyles and haircuts on the internet. And wow are they bad, from the helicopter (not that one, lol) to a bowl cut with a rat tail finding anything worse will be a serious challenge. (more…)
AMC is seriously killing it with their post-apocalyptic shows like The Walking Dead and now Into The Badlands. Some of the seriously badass female characters are The Widow (played by Emily Beecham) and the clipper Zypher (played by Ellen Hollman). Who doesn’t love a strong woman kicking ass and looking great at the same time? The Barron also has a crazy beard going on, but I’ll leave that for another post, so you’ll just have to watch the show and see it for yourself. Check out Zypher and The Widow in Into The Badlands… (more…)
It’s not easy being a zombie in the usual sense of being undead. But Rose Mclver has it a bit easier, and is way better looking than your average zombie flick. Jumping on the white, gray, silver hair color trend Liv Moore looks great as a zombie. While the white hair is a symptom of their condition (along with craving eating brains), Rose Mclver and David Anders pull it off nicely. The show is just another in a long line of police procedurals with a twist like so many others (forever, castle, dexter, mentalist, etc.) but I like it for its brain content and the comic book style graphics in the intro. I imagine it’s a severe pain in the ass to keep their roots bleached out all the time when shooting new episodes.
If you haven’t seen the show, it’s a bit silly, but worth a look to see if ya like it. I just want to be able to use “…but I’m a Zombie” whenever someone asks me about my ridiculously awesome hairstyles or why I’m eating so much hot sauce. (more…)
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? (more…)
