Escape Hairs Top 5 Brilliant Bond Girl Hairstyles
A Bond girl is a love interest or flirtation of Bonds, and through cinematic history, Bond Girls have oozed class, style and beauty as part of the James Bond series. There is no set rule on what kind of person a Bond girl will be or what role she will play. She may be an ally or an enemy of Bond, or simply eye candy! Over the past 52 years, we’ve seen more than our fair share of sassy leading ladies vying for 007’s heart – each of whom brought their own unique sense of style to the franchise.
In celebration of the release of Spectre this month (the 24th James Bond film believe it or not!) we take a look at our top 5 Brilliant Bond Girl Hairstyles. At our hairdressing salon in Calne we can recreate these gorgeous looks for you. To book your appointment for a stunning ‘Bond look’ give us a call on 01249 819858 or book online using our secure booking system here.
1. Ursula Andress in ‘Dr No’ 1962
When Andress emerged from the sea, curves glistening, with a dagger strapped to her bikini, she made the Bond girl an instant icon. The 1962 film ‘Dr No’ provided Ursula Andress’ character ‘Honey Rider’ with one of the most iconic James Bond moments of all time. Ursula is still the poster girl for holiday beauty and the number 1 beauty reference for beach hair.
2. Halle Berry in ‘Die Another Day’ 2006
With her bright orange bikini and her chic pixie crop spawned a generation of copycat haircuts…and we can’t get enough of it! Halle Berry was possibly the first Bond Girl to rock seriously short locks in 2002’s Die Another Day.
3. Karin Dor in ‘You Only Live Twice’ 1967
Karin Dor perfectly embodied the swinging sixties in ‘You Only Live Twice’ with artfully flicked out locks. The only thing rivalling those flicks is her fabulously feline eye liner.
4. Gloria Hendry in ‘Live and Let Die’ 1973
In ‘Live and Let Die’ Gloria became the first African American woman to be cast as 007’s love interest – and her 1970’s afro packs a serious punch!
5. Eva Green in ‘Casino Royale’ 2006
With more whit than Bond himself, Eva lent a more natural beauty to the Bond Girl role. When Eva Green was cast as ‘Vesper’ in 2006’s Casino Royale, we knew we were in for a treat. Green brought her own brand of elegance to the Bond franchise, styling her glossy, preened locks into a gorgeous chignon.
