Ha! Clara Bow's hair could be the worst I've ever seen. Looks like two hairdressers were fighting over her.

 

Delia Magana seems to have a bad case of bed head. Since she's holding a sheet around her, it might have been the look they were going for.

 

No guess on the last one's identity, but I recognize the eyes.

*"Ha! Clara Bow's hair could be the worst I've ever seen."* - patful

 

That one is a "cut" above the rest.

 

*"No guess on the last one's identity, but I recognize the eyes."*

 

I hope someone does figure it out. I was shocked when I saw it. I never knew this woman was even in films in 1930.

Cute idea, Kyle! Wherever did you get the inspiration? :)

That first photo looks like a very young Jesse Royce Landis.

From you!

Well, I mean... from your thread, that is. Hope you don't mind. I actually had saved those photos in a file called "Bad Hair" a while ago.

 

I was going to add them to your thread but thought that wouldn't be nice. I don't have anymore to add but others are welcome to make additions.

Give the little lady a kewpie doll! It's from a film called *Derelict*.

It's the sincerest form of flattery, Kyle! I was laughing the minute I saw it. It is thoroughly amusing.

And IWONIWONIWONIWONIWONIWONIWON the kewpie doll!

 

I guess for 1930, Jesse Royce was actually having a good hair day. I enjoy every scene she ever stole from Cary Grant, no small feat.

 

Thanks for all your great posters and photos. :)

To date my favorite has been those 2 news anchors in the movie "Batman" (1989) after the Joker tampered with the cosmetics.

 

Recently Nicolas Cage

This thread is funny, in that I was watching THE LETTER again today and wanted thru the whole movie to take a comb or brush to that ugly hairdo. Bette Davis was sporting. Thanks for giving me a spot to voice my frustration! :=)

Hey, no mocking Londo! :)

 

Kyle, I really like Claudette Colbert's hair in the shot you posted. Very modern... well, in the 60s it was.

The funny thing is that the second photo is of a "normal", Larry Fine. Never realised until now how nice lookig he really was. :|

I almost missed this thread - how about the man on the right from *Orphans of the Storm*, on now? That "tail" or whatever it is sticking out the back, is part of his hair/wig.
