We’re so familiar with the blonde bombshell that is Scarlett Johansson, that it’s easy to forget how long this talented actress has been in the movie business. In fact, her first breakout role was during her teenage years, in The Horse Whisperer. Since then, she’s entertained us with a sultry superhero, a young wife lost in Japan, a woman that turns into a computer chip, and an alien that stalks the streets of Scotland.
So, it’s fair to say that she’s had a rich and varied career. She’s currently shooting scenes for the highly anticipated adaptation of Ghost in the Shell and we’re already in love with her punky, manga hairstyle. The asymmetric bob is bang on trend right now; it’s very striking, but also surprisingly easy to maintain. It’s not the only amazing hairstyle that we’ve seen on ScarJo lately, either.
If you want to steal some style tips from this thoroughly modern screen siren, look no further!
The Epic Avenger
In superhero flick The Avengers, Scarlett Johansson even manages to make totally practical ‘you’re next on my hit list’ hair look effortlessly cool. She famously had to dye her hair red for the role of Black Widow, which is a bold style, but she has the fine features to pull it off. She also had to go for the chop and sport a textured, kickass bob. If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge yourself, but can’t bear the idea of being without long hair, don’t forget that hair extensions are perfect for adding length and switching up your style.
The Punk Rock Crop
Do you remember the 2015 Oscars and the most awkward kiss ever committed to camera? Well, the rest of the world does; the odd moment when John Travolta appeared to plant an overfriendly smooch on Scarlett Johansson’s face (much to her disdain) quickly went viral. The cringey encounter almost eclipsed the fact that the actress showed up with an amazing new hairstyle. It’s shaved at the sides, but left long and lush in the middle, which is how she’s created that super suave quiff. The trick to building up any style of quiff is backcombing. Tip your hair forward and brush vigorously from the roots outward.
The Ghost in the Shell
There’s been a little controversy over the upcoming Ghost in the Shell adaptation. Some comic book fans and film critics are not very happy that Johansson has been cast to play a character who is originally of Asian origin. Nevertheless, she looks fabulous in the first promotional stills. Not many actresses could pull off an asymmetric bob, with electric blue highlights, but this one promises to do with ease. If you’re not bold enough for a pixie cut or a bob, you can always swap the chop for longer clip in highlights, in a bright blue, pink, or purple.
The Pink Haired Heartthrob
As fans of indie film Lost in Translation will know, Scarlett Johansson can beguile, enthral, and tug at the heartstrings all at the same time. This quirky neon style gave audiences one of the most iconic images in recent cinema history. Now, we’re pretty sure that the pink hair she wore in the movie is a wig, but pastel tones are all the rage at the moment. Everybody from Kylie Jenner to Kesha, Lady Gaga, and Vanessa Hudgens has been spotted rocking candyfloss colours. You can dive right in and dye your whole head or take it slow and experiment with clip in extensions first. They’re easy to wear and they come in a huge range of different colours.
