Special Feature: Movie Musical Styles

Today’s topic will be the styles of not one but two movie musicals!

“The King and I,” written by the fabulous duo of Rodgers and Hammerstein, is one of my favorite movies. It takes place in the 1860s in Siam and features many lovely songs such as “Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Getting to Know You,” and “Shall We Dance?” Yul Brenner’s style is a matte scalp. This look is extremely versatile! He wears it for formal occasions such as the grand ball for the British ambassador (above).

This look is also perfect everyday and casual get-togethers.

Our other movie musical is “Annie” from 1982. In this film, Albert Finney sports the more daring shined scalp. This look can be somewhat harsh,

but he manages to soften it.

The waxed look is also waterproof, making it ideal for swimming!

Happy April Fool’s Day, everybody!

  2. How did you ever figure out those complicated styles?! I’ll have to try them out someday.
    lol. Not:)
    I personally prefer the matte scalp look – you get some serious glare issues with the shined version;)

    I knew it was April Fool’s Day the minute I opened my booby trapped bedroom door=)

  3. Hah, that’s funny! I half expected to see you at the end wearing a matte scalp, because I knew you would never shave your head.

    Happy April Fool’s Day everyone.

  4. I’m know my comment is late, but better late than never, right? πŸ™‚

    Janet, I planned this post back before Christmas, and I was seriously going to try a bald cap, but then I remembered back to when I was in diving class (failed attempt 314159 at being athletic!), and I broke sooooo many swim caps. And PhotoShop just isn’t the same.
