    Everyone's Calling The Hair Tie Scene In "Birds Of Prey" The Best Moment From The Film, And Here's Why

    "If there's one thing I've learned from having five sisters, it's that someone always has a hair tie."

    ๐ŸšจObviously MASSIVE spoilers ahead!๐Ÿšจ

    Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) has officially hit theaters and TBH, I loved every second of it.

    Warner Bros.

    But one of the things I can't stop thinking about is a simple hair tie.

    Okay I am obsessed with #BirdsofPrey overall, but nothing brought me greater joy than the small moment when Harley shared her hair tie! A true mark of female friendship ๐Ÿ–ค

    In Birds of Prey, Harley ends up joining forces with Huntress, Dinah Lance, and Renee Montoya in order to protect Cassandra Cain from Roman Sionis.

    Warner Bros.

    Everything culimates in a big fight scene where Harley and the Birds of Prey are fighting Sionis's men.

    In the middle of battle, Harley notices that Dinah's hair keeps getting in her face.

    So, Harley hands Dinah a hair tie โ€” it's such a small moment, but it's a scene that solidifies their friendship.

    According to director Cathy Yan, this moment came from a conversation with writer Christina Hodson โ€” she said, "I put my hair up for anything. I put my hair up to wash my face; I'm certainly going to do it to fight some bad guys."

    Warner Bros.

    Cathy said, "I think [Christina] brought up how crazy it is that all these women have perfect blown-out hair in all these other action films, and I was like, 'You're right.'"

    Like me, the rest of the internet can't stop thinking about this small moment between Harley and Dinah. Here are some of the best reactions:


    You can tell a movie was directed and written by a women when in the middle of an action scene someone hands a hair band to their teammate

    I didn't know going into #BirdsOfPrey that it was directed by a woman, but a key line about a hair tie made me turn to my husband and say "I bet a woman made this". I was correct.

    Itโ€™s hard to pick a favorite moment in #BirdsOfPrey (so many candidates!) but one contender is when Harley hands Black Canary a hair tie in the middle of a fight, paying off at least two decades of me yelling โ€œTIE YOUR HAIR BACKโ€ at women in action movies.

    @GailSimone Let's see Batman put in a hair tie while fighting off goons. Best action movie moment ever.

    Loved #BirdsOfPrey, finally a female character asking for a hair tie in the middle of a fight scene!

    Holy shit is #BirdsOfPrey fun as hell! Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn is just one of those things in life that makes 100% sense. Side note: If there's one thing I've learned from having 5 sisters it's that someone always has a hair tie.

    My favorite moment in #BirdsOfPrey was when Harley handed Black Canary a hairtie in the middle of a fight sequence. Because really, no woman gets serious shit done with hair all up in her face.

    Mild #BirdsOfPrey spoilers: I've been thinking about it. I loved it loads, and I know it wasn't going for realism but my favourite bit was during a fight sequence when one character offered a hair tie to another. I feel SEEN. Amazing glittery practicality. On WHEELS.

    Ok; I have a lot of opionions and things to say about Birds of Prey; all good - but right now I want to say I never thought a hair tie could be so fucking significant and expressive of female solidarity #BirdsOfPrey

    Saw #BirdsOfPrey & hands down my favorite scene is when Harley Quinn hands Black Canary a hair tie during a fight so she can pull her locks back. The ladies all know how important it is to have that one friend who has your hairโ€™s back.
