Default I love period pieces!

Even if they get everything else wrong (like the updos, customs, and speaking patterns) I love how filmakers give almost all the women long hair! I have found my new hair idol: Miss Natalie Portman as Anne from the upcoming film The Other Boleyn Girl.
It doesn't look like she's got extensions, but that could just be me.

If that's not her hair, it's incredibly natural-looking. That's a beautiful picture.

I love the hairstyles in period pieces, too. I'm watching a Mexican soap opera that takes place in the mid 1700's (allegedly) and the hair is to die for! Here's a sample. (I'm referring to the woman on the left; the one on the right really got the short end of the stick IMO.)

Not sure if Natalie has had enough time to grow her hair that long. A movie she did a year or so ago she had to shave her head.

I don't think she had enough time to grow it as long as it looks in the picture above - maybe it was a wig.

I'm sure it must be a wig, but it's a really good looking one, juding by that one picture. Quality hairpieces can really look natural and good, too bad so many celebs sport bad looking ones.

I think it's less or about two years since she shaved her hair completely for a movie, no way her hair could have grown that long in such a short time. She's also been sporting shortish hairdos since then.

she really did continue to look pretty with a shaved head didn't she? That is why the rest of us grow long hair - I know I would look like an alien with a shaved head

I never thought about a wig- I just had figured it wasn't extentions based on how all her hair is one length- with extentions you can almost always see what layer they are attatched to. But a wig makes perfect sense. Scarlett Johanson has lovely long blonde hair as well that would either be a wig or an act of god since it's too long to have not been noticed in the press. I just really love Natalie Portman's hair since I'm about her height and have a similar hair color to her, so I can visualize my hair at that stage

She really, really did.

I've liked Natalie Portman ever since I watched 'Leon' but never had a crush on her. Then I saw her with a shaved head and she instantly pinged my radar!

I have a few friends who have had shaved heads since I've known them. It's tempted me but, really, it's one of the few looks I just know I could never pull off. I have a pale, lumpy head. Who wants to see that?

It looks so amazing on some women, though.

I love period films too, but not just for hair, for the wardrobe too heh heh.
We rented Elizabeth the Golden Age this weekend, it was a 2 day rental, and I'm sure I watched it at least 4 times (I watched it back to back until I returned it LOL) I even attempted a bun Bess wears alot throughout the movie-it looks like a Cinnbun of some fashion, but my hair is not long enough yet.

I never get sick of watching the first dancing scene in P&P either-soooo many different buns! SQUEEE!

ETA: I agree, Natalie is one of the few women who looks very attractive with a shaved head.
