Angelina Jolie – A Hair History

The break up of Hollywood’s most famous couple ‘Brangelina’ has been making headlines. Following Angelina’s exit, we revisit some of her most memorable hair moments.

Brunette beginnings

In 1995 Jolie starred alongside her previous husband, Jonny Lee Miller in Hackers. She slashed her locks into a pixie crop for this crime techno thriller.  

Briefly Blonde

The late 90s saw a brief stint with lighter locks. For her Oscar winning performance in Girl Interrupted (1999), Jolie sported a cropped fringe.

Tomb Raider

For the tomb raider films, action hero Lara Croft opted for the long French braid. Both powerful and practical. Perfect for tomb raiding. You slay Lara, slay.  

Deadly Dreads

For Gone in 60 Seconds Jolie sported platinum twisted dreadlocks for her character Sara ‘Sway’ Wayland. Can she pull them off? You decide.

Signature Jolie

Jolie’s long, luscious curls in Mr and Mrs Smith make us drool. Her gorgeous chocolaty hues are instantly recognisable.

Hollywood Royal

In 2014, Jolie was presented with a damehood for her sexual violence campaign work. She kept it regal at Buckingham palace, sweeping her hair into a classy up do.
