I watched Brave recently and there was a scene that stuck with me. At
Merida’s low point, she sits in a cave in the rain and reflects the mess
she was in. As opposed to her typical puffy hair, we got to see her
hair getting wet in this scene and it’s one of the rare times in the
movie where her hair isn’t so flashy and over-powering. Her hair is
muggy, stranded, and deformed from its glory. I think Merida’s hair
was a great device that reflected her mental state. Good design!
