Styling Keanu Reeves’ Hair In Bill & Ted Was No Easy Task


Winter (jokingly) explained how complex the hairdo was, explaining that it was Reeves’ idea:

“Ted Hair was really hard to do. I have to give Keanu credit for that. Ted Hair had to be out like — and this was all his design — it had to be out of this kind of physically impossible level. Like, not too high. ‘Cause the makeup people would be like, ‘Oh, I’ll just spray it. I’ll put it up in the air.’ He’d be like ‘No, that’s not what I want.’ It needs to be between ‘down here’ and ‘up here.’ […] It is kind of genius. You know, I had to suffer for months with him trying to get it where it needed to be. We’d be waiting for the camera to roll, and Ted Hair would ask for a mirror.”

Winter was, of course, exaggerating. He did, however, find Reeves’ look to be genuinely funny. “It does make you laugh your butt off,” he added.

Winter then noted that the perfect shot of Ted’s hair came near the film’s climax. After receiving psychoanalysis from Sigmund Freud on stage in front of his high school class, Ted sits up from the therapy couch and simply says his trademark “Woah.” Reeves was lit from the back, silhouetting his hair, which was still a little frizzy from having laid down. It was a moment of beauty.

Winter and Reeves reprised their roles in the 1990 “Bill & Ted” animated series as well as the 1991 follow-up, “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey,” and the 2020 long-in-the-tooth sequel “Bill & Ted Face the Music.” Ted Hair did not appear in the 2020 film. Winter and Reeves also did not appear in the 1992 live-action TV series “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures,” however, having turned over their roles to Evan Richards and Christopher Kennedy, respectively.
