To us mere mortals, the life of an actor usually appears all sorts of glamourous. But in reality, all those hair styling sessions on set and drastic colour changes for different roles take a huge toll on the locks of our TV favourites.
Ashley Benson, who played Hanna Marin on Pretty Little Liars for seven seasons, recently revealed the price her hair paid for the role. “I bleached my hair so much during season three and it fell right off and you couldn’t even tell!” she told ELLE. “I got a call from Warner Bros. like, ‘You need to do something with your hair,'” and I’m like well, duh, I’m bald! Bleaching my hair was my biggest regret.”
Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart has had a similar experience, telling PopSugar that those Betty Cooper ponytails are more taxing than they appear. “We just started adding extensions to my ponytail, because my hair has gotten so damaged and fried, quite frankly, from being heat styled every day,” she says. “I definitely have invested in a lot of hair masks and treatments in order to save my hair. I feel like at the end of the show, I’ll have to shave my head.”
After using wigs for previous seasons of Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke decided to finally go all in and bleached her hair ‘Mother of Dragons blonde’. But once the deed was done, Emilia was forced to chop off all her hair into a chin-length bob.
Now let’s all take a moment of silence for the damaged hair that we’ve lost to the TV industry and stock up on restoring hair masks. bh loves: Dove Intensive Repair Mask, Essano Argan Oil Recovery Hair Mask, Schwarzkopf Extra Care Hair Care Supreme Length Intensive Mask.
