From Shirley MacLaine's pink updo to Scarlett Johansson's candy-colored wig, click through to take a look back at the boldest hair color moments in movies.
Lea Seydoux, Emma in Blue is the Warmest Color (2013)
Emma’s cerulean hair seems to magnetically attract—and ensnare—new lover Adele.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ramona in Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World (2010)
Veering from fuchsia to green to blue and everything in between, Ramona’s hair is like a glow-in-the-dark, raver party favor.
Chloe Grace Moretz, Mindy in Kick-Ass (2010)
The violet wig gives extra attitude to Mindy’s alter ego—Hit-Girl—a foul-mouthed, vigilante superhero bringing down the local crime syndicate.
Kate Winslet, Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)
Clementine is the ultimate manic pixie dream girl, with a Roy G. Biv range of emotions and hair colors (my favorite is the green).
Scarlett Johansson, Charlotte in Lost in Translation (2003)
On my bucket list: Go to Tokyo, throw on a pink wig, and sing "Brass in Pocket" at a karaoke bar.
Franka Potente, Lola in Run Lola Run (1998)
Her blazing red hair matches perfectly with the feeling of your heart beating out of your chest as you watch her run!
Milla Jovovich, Leeloo in The Fifth Element (1997)
Leeloo saves the world while mesmerizing with Jean Paul Gaultier-designed costumes and Fanta orange hair.
Matthew Lillard, Stevo, and Devon Sawa, Sean, in SLC Punk (1998)
Stevo and Sean—with blue and green spiked hair, respectively—are the hardcore punk fish out of water in straight-laced, early ‘80s Salt Lake City, Utah.
Halle Berry, Storm in X-Men (2000)
Unsurprisingly, Berry makes silver-gray hair look incredibly chic and even sexy, especially when she’s summoning thunder clouds and lightning bolts.
Natalie Portman, Alice in Closer (2004)
Alice, a stripper in a complicated love quadrangle, begins the film with haphazardly-shorn red hair and transitions to a gorgeous brunette bob—but she wears wigs when she dances, including a very Lost in Translation pink one during a particularly tense encounter with Larry (Clive Owen).
Shirley MacLaine, Louisa in What a Way to Go! (1966)
Louisa’s husband Pinky (played by Gene Kelly) is obsessed with the color pink, painting everything in their house pink, and insisting she have a pink chinchilla coat, pink Rolls-Royce and—of course—pink hair.
