Our Favorite Summer Movies, and The Hair That Inspired Them

Summer is officially here! The temperature is rising, the beaches are filling up and everyone is getting ready to celebrate the heat with their favorite past time: watching movies!

You may not believe it, but it’s true. Americans watch an amazing amount of movies each summer, many of these inside a nice, air-conditioned movie theatre. It makes sense why, with the stories, the popcorn, and of course the movie wardrobe.

There is no better place to see some amazing hair, makeup and costuming than in the movie theatre.

Don’t believe us? Here are some of our favorite summer movies and the hair and makeup that inspires us.

  1. Teen Beach Movie

    Before you get too mad that this movie is top of the list, we have one question to ask you: Have you seen it? This quirky summer movie is full of so many of the things we loved in a movie growing up, that you have to admit that the hair and makeup of everyone is on par!

    While cast of this movie is dancing away in a 1950s beach movie, you are bound to be immersed in the classic styles that pop off the screen.

  2. I Know What You Did Last Summer

    Summer slasher movies have always had a special place in the hearts of the under-30 crowd as far as popcorn thrillers go, the late 90s style of these teens hints not only at nostalgia, but point at some of the more trendsetting styles of the early 2000s!

  3. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

    The classic end-of-school movie, this flick has fueled multiple generations into shenanigans and empowering them to seize the moment. While the hair and clothes might be a little dated, there is always something to love about a tassled leather jacket and perfectly feathered hair.

  4. Mean Girls

    While this movie may enrage traumatic flashbacks for some, it hits home for so many others. The high school world comes alive in this movie that has pretty much hit cult royalty status.

    From the clothes to the hair, and everything in between, this movie truly embodies everything you loved, and maybe hated, about your high school years.

  5. Wonder Woman

    When you think of powerful women, this superhero has topped the charts since her introduction in 1941. In 2017, this powerhouse exploded onto the big screen with all the amazing costumes and hair you can handle.

    It may be a bit ridiculous to fight a god in curls, but Diana does the job beautifully.

  6. The Fifth Element

    Not many people know of this quirky space opera, but if you do, you can’t forget the hairstyles. Who knew that bright orange could look so good? And what about Rudy Rodd? We may not be rushing to the leopard print jumpsuit store, but his look is definity one we can’t forget.

    Told in a strangely dystopian future, this movie from the 90s almost feels like it was predicting some of the top trends of today!

  7. School of Rock

    Jack Black at his comedic best with a little bit of rock and roll. It’s the perfect recipe for summer entertainment. Not only is this movie a fun ride for your inner rock star, but watching those straight-edged children go from clean-cut to total rockstars will awaken your inner makeover diva.
