GOT: The Hair Files; Bieber To Drop Girlfriend; And More…


If, like us, you are obsessed with HBO’s Game of Thrones (House Stark forever!), you may be interested to know that the show’s hair designer, Kevin Alexander, uses an estimated 20-30 wigs in the series. Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, Melisandre, and Margaery Tyrell’s long, glorious locks? All human hair wigs—each of which is styled every day with Wella products and can cost up to $7,000! Sansa Stark’s long red locks are real, albeit colored with a mixture of four temporary dyes, as the actress Sophie Turner is actually a blonde. [Fashionista]

From impossibly long hair to shockingly short hair. Cate Blanchett has revealed that a new crop might be in the works. “Shaving off my hair is so liberating,” she says. “I had to do it once for a film role, but I’ve done it periodically, too. I cut my hair short a few years ago and I’m thinking about doing it again.” [Monsters & Critics]

Being better looking than someone in any form of competition only helps you prevail if you’re considerably better looking than them, according to economist Daniel S. Hamermesh, the author of Beauty Pays, a book about how physical attractiveness directly correlates to better financial compensation. Make of that what you will. [NYT]

After his first fragrance, Someday, took in record-breaking sales at the beauty counter, Justin Bieber has announced that plans for a follow-up scent, called Girlfriend, are already in the works. [OK!]
