16 Aug Summer Salon Movies Now Showing
Let’s face it, South Florida is not at its best in August. All that heat and humidity can limit the number of good hair days you enjoy this month. We know! We may work in best hair salon in Boca Raton, but even we have bad hair days in August.
There’s a silver lining in all this, though! August is a great time to crank up the a/c, put on your sweats and curl up with a great movie. You know you can trust Wild Orchid Hair Salons in Boca and Jupiter to make your hair ready for a close-up. Now’s the time to find out if you can also trust our movie recommendations.
We asked some of the talented stylists and professional colorists at our Jupiter and Boca Raton salons which salon-centric films they would suggest. Here are a couple of our favorites:
These days, moviemakers are turning to Broadway for inspiration (did you know that Taylor Swift is going to be in the movie version of Cats?!), but when it comes to Hairspray, the movie came first. The Broadway version- which opened in 2002 and won Tony Awards, including Best Musical – was based on the 1988 film written and directed by John Waters. That version starred Ricki Lake, Divine, Debbie Harry, Sonny Bono and Jerry Stiller, among others. The cast list for the 2007 version of the film included John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken, Amanda Bynes, James Marsden, Queen Latifah, Brittany Snow, Zac Efron, Elijah Kelley and Allison Janney, among others. In whichever version you see, teenager Tracy Turnblad will dance across your screen as her star rises on a local TV dance show and she battles racial segregation in 1960s Baltimore.

Queen Latifah stars as Gina Norris in this comedy as a talented hairdresser who relocates from Chicago to Atlanta with her daughter (Paige Hurd). When she finally has enough of her shady boss, Jorge – who is played by Kevin Bacon – ), Gina opens her own salon – taking a couple of Jorge’s employees and clients, including Lynn (Alicia Silverstone) and Terri (Andie MacDowell) with her. Jorge, of course, is out to get her.
So, if you’re looking for something to do this weekend, make some popcorn and get ready to visit the salon! (Be sure to let us know what you think!).
And, remember, summer doesn’t last forever – even in South Florida! When you’re ready to start thinking about a fresh fall look, plan to visit our salon in Boca Raton or Jupiter for customized cut and color.
