40s/50s pin up girl style fringe does seem a bit weird. But then maybe its not that odd, Cinderalla was made in 1950 so this style was still in fashion at the time.
There are some other references to the 40s that I have noticed. During the Cinderella servant working scenes she looks quite a lot like a land girl. She wears a head scarf with her hair tied back and her pin-up girl fringe at the front. This combined with her dowdy clothes, apron and sweeping brush make her look really quite similar to the 40s land girls.
2. Aurora - Sleeping Beauty
final ball-dance scene her hair is kept the same. I suppose the contrast with Cinderella is that sleeping beauty doesn't center around Aurora, I mean she is asleep for a large amount. She doesn't have the 'rag to riches' thing that Cinderella has either so there is no need for a drastic hair change.
3. Snow White
4. Belle - Beauty and the beast
I know there are many people who believe the beast looks better as a beast rather than when he changes to a man. I am sort of one of them because there is such a build up to him changing back to a man, when he finally does I always feel a bit disappointed. Also is it just me, or does human beast look EXACTLY like guybrush threepwood in the first monkey island computer game?Actually this is making him more attractive to me... haha (I actually couldn't find a good photo of Guybrush to illustrate this. He does though... well sort of)
Contrary to popular belief (well my belief) the early Disney princesses did not tend to have long stereotypical princess hair. Snow white has a short bob, Cinderella has shoulder length hair and Belle's hair is only just past shoulder length. However, its still Disney so everyone's hair is glossy and perfect. I have also noticed, hairband and hair accessories seem to be popular in all of these films. There is a large amount of ribbons used, I suppose this helps to make them look youthful and maidenly... or whatever.
The next one of these Disney Princess hairstyle thiiings I will do in a little while. I will probably do The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Pocahontas etc. or something along those lines.. yay, excitement!
