Hairy Issues

Wait, so there isn't just an endless supply of glossy, ethically-sourced human hair waiting to be made into extensions for Jessica Simpson? Um, no. Although celebs and those they inspire may not choose to think too hard about where their borrowed locks spring from, according to a new BBC documentary, Whose Hair Is It Anyway?, the growing demand for human hair extensions has led to ethically dubious hair-culling, with sources ranging from Russian prisoners to corpses (although hair dealers deny both.) Just as well that the recent extension-related bald patches and errant red-carpet strands are raising the celeb consciousness quotient. [Times of London]
