Holiday Movie Hairstyles!
Okay, so since I’ve been spending hours watching Christmas movies just like everyone else (come on, admit it!), I decided to take a good look at the hairstyle choices of some of our favorite Christmas movie characters, both human and animated… Enjoy!
How the Grinch Stole Christmas: Taylor Momsen, Cindy Lou Who
Who would have though that precious little Cindy Lou Who would grow up to become Taylor Momsen, every parent’s nightmare? The Cindy Lou ‘do is hilarious, a great creation of loopy braids, curls, and a gravity-defying ponytail. She was too cute in this movie! I can’t believe it’s the same girl these days. Taylor’s long blond locks get a little ragged sometimes, but I am an undeniable fan of long and blonde, a look that will never go out of style…
Elf: Zooey Deschanel, Jovie
Who doesn’t love Elf? It’s such a great holiday movie. A sweet love story, the true meaning of Christmas, and Will Ferrell dressed up as a giant elf – simply perfect! Zooey Deschanel plays the shy, sarcastic Jovie, a “Gimble’s” employee who’s in desperate need of a little Christmas cheer. Zooey rocks a darker look in real life, but her sweet blonde flip is adorable in this heart-warming and hilarious Christmas movie.
Mean Girls (Jingle Bell Rock): Lacey Chabert, Gretchen Wieners
Mean Girls is, of course, not a Christmas movie… but who could forget the “Jingle Bell Rock” performance? Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried and Lacey Chabert all rock Santa Hats and dance to this innocent song with some not-so-innocent moves:
I love all of these actresses and they all have fabulous hair, although Lindsay’s entire look (and brain) has been questionable for awhile now. Lacey Chabert’s pretty ringlets win hands-down for best hair out of all the Mean Girls. They have that perfect curl, gorgeous bounce and great volume – even with the santa hat on!
The Nightmare Before Christmas: Sally
I’ve never been a huge fan of this movie, just because I don’t think the words “Christmas” and “nightmare” belong in the same sentence. On the other hand, my best friend is obsessed with all things Tim Burton and this is the only holiday movie she likes. Anyway, Sally’s one animated Christmas character that has notable long locks. She could really use a trim, though, and maybe some layers… possibly a few highlights.
It’s a Wonderful Life: Donna Reed, Mary Hatch Bailey
This is one of those cheesy but heart-warming holiday movies that makes you appreciate life. George Bailey is contemplating suicide over an $8,000 loss. In the midst of this, his guardian angel appears and shows him exactly how much of a difference he’s made in the world. It’s a sweet message, and since it was filmed in 1946, the vintage hairstyles are to die for! Donna Reed plays Mary Hatch Bailey, George’s lover. Check out her pretty pin curls and waves:
