Of course!

Out of Africa

Overall, not a hair movie, but the scene where Robert Redford washes Meryl Streep?s hair . . . definitely memorable.

Legends of the Fall

Was anything more tragic than Julia Ormond cutting those luscious tresses? (Well, maybe when she offed herself.) And Brad Pitt?s grunge/sensitive New Age cowboy hair plays a strong supporting role.

Romy & Michelle?s High School Reunion

Hair second only to costumes. Tubular.


For obvious reasons.

Valley of the Dolls

Extreme bouffantage.


Cate Blanchett?s stunning locks almost scared me.


Well, duh.


Jessica Lange with blue snakes as hair. Hello, Medusa!


Bo Derek makes cornrows safe for white people.
