The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
A fashion film that has almost become a rite of passage for young women; this pick might just make you finally cut your own bangs. Anne Hathaway's big makeover involved these framing fringes, they are so chic and it's fun to watch her work them with so many incredible outfits.
Dhoom 2 (2006)
A story list about trendsetting hair looks is incomplete without Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in it. The caramel highlights, big wavy hair and Cali-girl style side part, were all so chic. I tried to recreate the plaited look from Crazy Kiya Re for a school dance myself; and failed miserably.
Possibly one of the earliest movies that had a lead use closet organising “app” to pick clothes, this is a 90s classic. The best hair trend to watch out for? Cher’s (Alicia Silverstone) stylish one length hair styled with many different clips and pins.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
Not that you need ANOTHER reason to watch this SRK classic, we invite you to take a closer watch just for the fashion. On its release, Kajol’s blunt-bob-with-bangs became the go-to for tomboys and has become an unlikely 2020 hair trend as well.
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Avert your gaze from the super cute male lead and marvel at the awesome OOTDs that Lara Jean wears! The movie catapulted hair accessories from add-ons to essentials in a woman’s vanity. Hair scrunchies, wide bands and ribbons are used in the movie’s screenplay as characters, and we are so on board with it!
Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu
Kareena Kapoor’s tousled hair and red streaks looked super cool. There was a time when every college-goer wanted to get red streaks in their hair after watching this movie.
A beautiful mother-daughter story, this film is a reminder that no amount of stress should warrant you use red boxed hair dye on your mane. It is also a reminder that short hair cuts will always be the coolest style for all the self-proclaimed lazy girls out there.
Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani
Deepika’s beachy waves might’ve become a shaadi-style fave after the film and there is not a single bride who remained disappointed! The soft waves; warm brown hue and casual hair flips were an event on their own.
Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
When Anushka Sharma wore a kurti and jeans in this film, desi girls everywhere cheered in delight. We’ve been doing it for years! We’ve also been giving your natural locks easy waves by wearing them in loose braids overnight; just like in the movie.
And lastly, Mean Girls!
This one needs no introduction. Janis Ian’s (Lizzy Caplan) grungy hairdos were both cool and practical for a girl dealing with all that hair!
