Most of us have hair, and most of us abuse it, dye it, fry it, iron it, tease it and make some really awful hairstyle choices. Raise your hand if you can look at old photos and not cringe. Uh-huh. No hands. For most of us, a bad hair style remains hidden in photo albums or behind glass frames on our mother’s mantle. For the rich and famous, it’s a different story.
