16 Film Hairstyles You Always Wanted But NEVER Got

Very few of us are adventurous when it comes to our hair.

It takes a lot to go for something really new - whether it's a cut, colour or the latest trend - because there's that classic FOIGW (fear of it going wrong) thing that makes us bail last minute.


Now that it's officially hair-mare season (the frizz is uncontrollable) surely it's time to have a drastic change? Anything is better than the helmet hair we're working right now.

What about those amazing onscreen hairstyles from all your favourite movies that you always wanted to try out? That's what we're talking about.

The perfect pouf a la Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette? Frenchy's beauty school drop out 'do in Grease? Dionne Marie Davenport's braids circa Clueless? Yes, yes, yes.

Even getting a fringe cut in can be a game changer. And yes, Pocahontus had that whole glossy long hair thing going on, but it was her BFF Nakoma (above) who had the sharpest fringe to come out Disney.

Normcore hair is a total bore. It's time to make an appointment and go for a style that says look-how-freaking-cool-my-hair-is.
