The most important thing about Sandy in this scene is her tight black spandex.  She had the shiny kind of spandex that has the wet-look to it.  She also wore some open toe red high-heels that also had that slick, wet-look to them.

Another important feature to think about was her make-up!  Sandy had very distinct make-up in this scene of the movie.  She had black eyeliner on and mascara and some red lipstick.  She went total greaser chick with her make-up in this final scene.   A lot of folks refer to this has her “Bad Sandy” personality.

Sandy wore an off the shoulder black top like this one in the movie during the finale. Her infamous black outfit with the tight black pants, leather jacket, red heels and off the shoulder top like this one is probably the most popular scene in the whole movie.

If you’re going to dress up as Sandy in Grease from the finale of the movie, you absolutely have to have a top like this one here to go with it. There are other off the shoulder black tops similar to this one too. To stay true to the movie, you have to get an off the shoulder black top with short sleeves or no sleeves.



Red-Open Toe High Heels – Sandy’s Grease Shoes

Sandy’s shoes in the finale scene were open-toed red high heel shoes.  They really made the entire outfit that much more of a head turner.  Shoes like these are hard to walk in so make sure you get lots of practice before you head off to the sock hop with Danny in these.

Olivia Newton John Costume Wigs & Hairstyles

Olivia Newton John Hair Grease MovieSandy wore a few different hairstyles in the movie, the most distinct feature is her bangs.  She wears her hair half-up and half-down with her bangs down in front. This is the hairstyle she had when she met Danny for the first time in the movie. She also wears her hair down and has the ends flipped outward with bangs in front.  There are a couple of scenes where Sandy has ponytail with her bangs down.  Here are a couple of Olivia Newton John costume wigs that would work for your outfit.

If you are dressing up as Sandy and you’re not a blonde, you’re going to need the wig.  If you are a blonde or dirty blonde you can pull it off on your own without the use of a wig.  For the good-girl look, a bob with a headband or ponytail with a ribbon would be cute.  For bad-girl look, you need to get the bouncy curls going on, so if you have thin hair, a wig might also be an option.
