The Best Hairdos In Hollywood History
Female division. In the talking era. According to Michael Musto. Feel free to do your usual whining and add your own faves.
Joan Cusack and Melanie Griffith in Working Girl. It was the hair that really worked for me. Valley of the Dolls, a movie about pills, sex, and mostly hair. Barbara Parkins had her own separate hairdresser, Mr. Kenneth. Pam Grier in Scream Blacula Scream. He was probably screaming over her fierce 'fro. Pixieish Jean Seberg, the new wave's favorite fourth wall-breaker. Her tomboy 'do always left me Breathless. Liza in Cabaret, my favorite Nazi musical. That widow's peeky thing in the middle was such divine decadence. And speaking of Divine decadence...Hairspray! Edna had a great hair day here. Joan Crawford buzzed around in this bizarrely fabulous hairdo in Queen Bee. Hair by Helen Hunt. (No, not THAT Helen Hunt.) Catherine Deneuve's hair didn't move in The April Fools. Don't try that at home. Liz Taylor's hair in Cleopatra was a Caesar's salad of fabulousness--and it went perfectly with her golden arm snake. Marlene Dietrich was a blonde goddess in Blonde Venus. They don't sell this look at Ricky's. Shirley MacLaine had the ultimate kook/tomboy/pixie/waif look in The Apartment. She went with the furniture. Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada. The hair alone could have edited the magazine. Marion Cotillard as Piaf. She regretted nothing, except the fact that this photo is cropped.
