Epic Hairstyles For Natalie Portman In Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace

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…)

The Hunger Games 2 Catching Fire Hairstyles

The second Hunger Games movie Catching Fire again had some amazingly cool hairstyles. Not that I would wear a bunch of them out in public, but they are still really inventive and colorful. One of the main draws to the movie was seeing Katniss in her wedding dress that turns into a mocking jay like magic. So let’s check that out first, Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger games wedding hairstyle that’s a really classy up do with just a bit of flair with the braided bun and white sparkly accessories in her hair.

Charlize Theron’s Hairstyles in Snow White and the Huntsman

Dressing up as a queen? Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman has a few great hairstyles fit for a modern queen. The braid to reinforce the look of the crown and to hold that thing in place is really nice. It gives the heavy metal spiked crown a softer glowing blonde edge. It even looks good without the crown on. (more…)

The Hunger Games Hairstyles

There are a lot of things about the first Hunger Games movie from 2012 that bothered me. First, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is supposed to be from the poorest of the 12 districts, so why is she healthy, almost plump, looking? You’d think if they’re so hungry that they are risking execution to hunt a few birds (and fail at hunting a deer) in the next district they would actually look hungry and at least reasonably skinny. Secondly, those family genetics are pretty strange. Katniss has black hair but her sister Primrose Everdeen (played by Willow Shields)and her mom is blonde or dirty blonde? That doesn’t seem strange to anyone? (more…)

Anne Hathaway French Twist Hairstyle for Vogue Magazine

Yesterday we were looking at a young, twenty-something Anne Hathaway playing a clumsy, fashion-backward girl in “The Devil Wears Prada.” (Not to mention her star-making turn in 2001’s “The Princess Diaries”) We know from real life, that her character couldn’t be farther from the truth—Hathaway has carved out her own niche amid the Hollywood glitterati as a natural beauty not to mention Oscar-nominated actress, she’s reminiscent of Elizabeth Taylor or Judy Garland, says “An Education” Director Lone Scherfig, who will film the actress in his upcoming romantic comedy, “One Day.”  (more…)

Carey Mulligan with a short messy pixy cut hairstyle

Carey Mulligan Hairstyle in Wall Street

In the new movie “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” the sequel to the 1987 movie “Wall Street” Carey Mulligan plays Winnie Gekko estranged daughter of Gordon Gekko (played by Michael Douglas).

Throughout the film Carey has a great short and straight or messy hairstyle that is super cute and (although slightly longer) really similar to the style Emma Watson had at the opening of the latest Harry Potter movie. Though Carey has had several shorter and similar cuts this style stands out specifically because of how short it is and the deep red-ish brunette color it is…  instead of her other brunette or blond looks.
