Jessica Rabbit is a fictional cartoon character in the 1988 film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit." Aside from her revealing red sequined dress, Jessica Rabbit is most famous for her sexy hairstyle, loosely based on the 1940s peekaboo bang hairstyle favored by Hollywood actresses such as Veronica Lake. During the film she has only one hairstyle in which her red hair is worn down and in loose, tousled waves.
The Jessica Rabbit hairstyle features long hair that falls just below the bust area. The hair is sectioned into a straight side parting, and one side of the hair falls softly over an eye to produce a sexy, sultry look. The hair has a lot of volume, particularly around the back of the head, and it is tousled into soft, flowing waves with a slight undercurl at the end of the hair.
Jessica's hair is a bright, bold, fiery red color that could be described as vampire, vermilion or fire truck red. The hair color is anything but natural, so you can achieve the look at home only by bleaching the hair blond and then dyeing it bright red or by using a synthetic wig.
Jessica Rabbit's hair falls slightly shorter at the front but is of equal length at the back. If you want to mimic her hairstyle, go for a blunt cut with light feathering at the front. The hair should be freshly cut and immaculately styled.
Many celebrities have copied the Jessica Rabbit hairstyle. During a VH1 "Diva Salute" performance, pop superstar Katie Perry wowed the crowds with a red sequined Jessica Rabbit dress and hairstyle, though she stuck with her natural black hair color. Pop princess Rihanna also channeled Jessica Rabbit's style in a photo shoot, and actress Christina Hendrix is often touted as a real-life Jessica Rabbit, thanks to her curvaceous figure, feminine features and fiery red hair.
