Closer: Natalie Portman's Pink Bob
While it’s hard to imagine living the life of Natalie Portman’s character, Alice, in Closer, sporting that bubblegum-pink bob she wore in the movie might be easier if you’re into playful hairstyles. This looks cute and sexy and packs a ton of personality. Dyeing all your locks in pink may seem daring, but this bubblegum shade is versatile and can suit various skin tones.

Ghost: Demi Moore’s Pixie Cut
Ghost came out in theaters over 30 years ago, yet Demi Moore’s presence in that movie remains timeless. Demi has always been a style star in her own right and commands attention in her films. Ghost is no exception, especially with that gorgeous (and low-maintenance!) she wore that spawned several copycats.

The Devil Wears Prada: Anne Hathaway’s Shaggy Layers and Bangs
Another movie style moment from the aughts? The Devil Wears Prada.
While the ’90s and the ’00s ruled in beauty montages and makeover sequences, Andy's cut-after-cut serving strong looks made this movie unbeatable. After successfully seeking help from art director Nigel (Stanley Tucci), Andy turns from a frumpy, no-nonsense journalist into a flawless fashion girl. How could we forget that scene when she walks into the Runway office in a Chanel blazer and a stunning shaggy hairdo with long layers and ?
The Princess Diaries is another Anne Hathaway classic with another memorable makeover sequence. However, her rival Lana, played by Mandy Moore, gave Mia a run for her money with a hairstyle that channeled Y2K teen queen: a shoulder-length layered cut, with the front pulled at the back with butterfly clips. With the 2000s going back in style, you can be sure this look will make a massive comeback.
