Nobody puts Baby in a corner, but they can certainly put her in the salon chair for a much-needed makeover. In order to fill in for Penny at the dance, Baby has to put some makeup on and a low-neckline dress in order to become the star that everybody knows she can be.
Penny is on-hand to give her all the help she needs after the two finally mend fences, but Baby’s sister Lisa is there to bring in the big guns with some iridescent lipstick. Sure, the movie might be called “Dirty Dancing,” but Baby cleans up in the best way.
Trying to Look Younger
In “Never Been Kissed” Drew Barrymore plays Josie Geller, a twenty-five-year-old journalist asked to go undercover at a high school. Legal? We aren't sure. But it gives Geller an opportunity to have a second crack at high school – the first time, she was a nerdy, antisocial loser with bad personal hygiene.
She at first goes overboard, obviously trying too hard, but then she settles down into something a little more natural. The makeover scene is over the top as Geller puts on a ridiculous outfit to make her stand out, but it doesn't last that long.
A Reluctant Look
Katniss Everdeen is skilled with a bow and ready to do what it takes to win the Hunger Games, and that means going through a makeover to appear glamorous for the waiting crowd. The capital has plenty of amazing dresses to help her make a statement, even if it's clear that she's more comfortable in the clothes that she normally wears.
No one can deny that she makes the best of it, even as she fights against the oppressive government and wins the hearts of the people from the surrounding districts. Her beautiful red dress earns her the moniker “girl on fire,” and she makes the most of it.
We're Business Ladies, We Swear
The titular characters of “Romy and Michele's High School Reunion” were a couple of loser slackers during their time at high school, but the reunion gives them a chance to prove their fellow students wrong about them. By pretending to be a successful businesswoman.
In order to do this, they have to hit the salons and the shops for the outfits that successful businesswomen would wear. This works like a charm, sort of, but not everything goes according to plan. They also try to say that they invented post-its.
Bringing Home the Bacon
This makeover was for an incredibly practical reason – Sue Ellen and her younger siblings have a babysitter for the summer that doesn't last long on this plane of existence, and they try to get by without any adult supervision. Sue Ellen quickly discovers she has to start earning some money.
She gets all dolled up and manages to land a job with a fashion house, something she figured she would be great at. As Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead shows, she has plenty of fashion up her voluminous sleeves. It's not that easy, of course, but this makeover is all fun when it happens.
