AceShowbiz - "Halloween" star Jamie Lee Curtis settled on her signature short hairstyle after a disastrous salon visit left her with burnt hair. The actress has sported a natural grey pixie cut for years - but the look came about by accident.
"I tried to do everything you can do to your hair," Curtis told Britain's ITV on Tuesday, October 12. "Personally, I felt it humiliating. I would go into a hair salon, the smell of the chemicals, the feeling of that color on my hair, the wearing the things, sitting under the hair dryer, I was like, 'For what?' "
Jamie Lee made her film debut in the 1978 horror classic "Halloween" and not long afterwards she had an unpleasant experience with a hair stylist.
"Very early on in my career, I had a perm, and then had to dye my hair for a movie, and it burned my hair off my head. And the first time I cut my hair short, I went, 'Oh, oh, my God. Oh wow, I look like me,' " she said.
"I have been an advocate for natural beauty for a long time, mostly because I've had the trial and error of the other part. Since then, I also stopped dyeing it, and then I've also been an advocate for not f**king with your face... I did plastic surgery, it didn't work. I hated it. It made me feel worse."
Jamie Lee, who will turn 63 in November, added, "And the term 'anti-ageing.' What?! What are you talking about? We're all gonna f**king age. We're all gonna die. Why do you want to look 17 when you're 70? I want to look 70 when I'm 70."
