THE BIG HAIR THREAD....

335 posts in this topic

Countess DeLave gave me an idea on the Challenges Thread.

Do you love 'big hair'? Or does it just plain bother you like wet socks? Who has the best 'big hair' of all time?

 

Who has the best bouffant in Hollywood today? Should 'big hair' stay in Dallas?

 

I think Liz Taylor at any award show she attended and Raquel Welch in *Bandolero* come pretty close to the Utopia of Big Hair.

Thanks, Fred!

That photo looks like it was taken later on in the movie when her hair had been growing to gargantuan proportions...after her encounter with the territorio bandolero!

Brigette Bardot has my dream big hair, tousled, sexy, adorable, yet still somehow chic.

I'm trying to think of a way to look like her in time for my hopeful first visit to the South of France next year.

 

I also adore Natalie's lush locks:

cinemafan helped by telling me to place a 1 before and after the links, which I did, and a photo came out when I sent it to myself in a PM, but trying it again on this thread, it didn't. I'm obviously doing something wrong.

I'm afraid that if you want really big hair, you have to look beyond movies:

One of my favorites is Viveca Lindfors' totally inappropriate tower o' hair in "King of Kings".It's supposed to be a period piece and there she is in all her 1960's glory. Sorry I can't post a picture.

This was the first thing that popped into my head when I read this thread...the hair stylist must have went through cases of Aqua Velvet....and yes, my favorite bad movie of all time!

 

Does Elvis ever qualify as having big hair? In some films his "ramp" is rather higher than in others.

It's not a "1," it's a "!." And you don't use the code "img src=" when using !. That's the way it works in this forum for some reason.

The two females in the B-52s? (Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson---I see that Cindy Wilson has already been mentioned)

If Elvis is going to be included in this bouffant fondue, we'd best not leave out Jack Lord.

 

Book 'em Dan-O.
