I love looking at fun ways to explore fashion and beauty trends, and a recent piece from Allure did just that — highlighting some hot looks from blockbuster movies in the recent, and not-so-recent, past.
I like the thought of getting some new ideas from the big screen, whether Lea Thompson’s subtle, natural makeup in Back to the Future or Halle Berry’s hair in a previous X-Men movie (though I prefer her styles in the last two movies, such as the one seen here, over the one selected by Allure for its list).
And what better time to try out a movie look, whether for a concert in the park or even a night out for dinner and a movie?
The piece started me thinking about some other movie styles that inspire a bit of fun, particularly with your hair.
I recently stumbled upon the site CuteGirlsHairstyles.com. This site is full of tutorials on how to do different hairstyles, including those from different movies. And, while there are tons of cute ideas to try out on a daughter or niece, I think plenty of them work great on adults.
What about Katniss’ braid from The Hunger Games series? It has tutorials on how to make that diagonal Dutch braid.
Elsa’s braid from Frozen? Yep, they’ve got that one, too.
Or, reaching further back, there is the classic French twist, such as Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. If you’ve got the long locks for it, the twist and bun on top, complete with tiara or jeweled clip, can add a bit of glamour for the evening.
JustBebexo.com, another fun site full of hair tutorials, has a great one on putting together Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly look. There’s also a tutorial on the makeup if you want to put the whole look together with a little black dress and gloves for the evening.
Whether it’s the style of clothes, the hair or the makeup, if you see something you like while at the movies this summer, why not give it a try? If you have any to share, I’d love to hear some of your favorite movie looks.
