The world of fantasy, populated by mysterious creatures such as vampires, fairies and elves, has intrigued mortals for centuries and continues to today. Since the original "Dracula" film by Bela Lugosi in 1931 through the "Lord of the Rings" films of the 2000s, fairies and vampires have been glorified and glamorised.


Bela Lugosi's "Dracula" popularised this hairstyle, and it remains an iconic portrait of what the male vampire should look like. It is best achieved on a short, even haircut, which is then slicked straight back with a fair amount of styling gel. For a more modern version of the same style, check out Eric Northman from "True Blood." Get his style by using less gel when slicking the hair back and allowing a messy part for a dishevelled look.


Legolas is a woodland elf of "The Lord of the Rings," and his iconic hairstyle is perfect for the male fairy. His blond hair is worn long and straight. The top half (to about the point of his temples) is gathered and combed straight back and made into a fishtail braid. Two more small fishtail braids start between the ear and temple on each side and run behind the ear down the length of the hair.

Mina Harker

Played by Winona Ryder in "Bram Stoker's Dracula," Mina Harker's hairstyle embodies vampiric elegance and beckons to a time before our own. The top half of the hair is gathered and pinned into an elaborate braided bun at the back of the head, while several strands are braided or curled.

Ever After

"Ever After," which is based on the fairy tale of Cinderella, features several beautiful hairstyles. The protagonist, Danielle, shows up to the final ball in a gorgeous gown, fairy wings and this gorgeous hairstyle: The hair is parted and pulled into a low ponytail, then split into four sections. The outer two sections are rope braided and wrapped around the head, while the last two sections are coiled at the back of the head and secured with pins and hair ornaments.
