The mystery of Phil Spector's hair has finally been solved.
Every time the producer would arrive at the courthouse to face charges of murdering actress Lana Clarkson, he seemed to have a different hairstyle. There was the electrifying afro in 2005 followed by a frizzy brown mop that was reminiscent of O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark. By 2007, Spector channeled his inner Carol Brady with a short blond pageboy cut
Onlookers took to blogs, wondering what Spector's hair looked like under the various wigs. It became an obsession that far surpassed the interest in Spector's legal proceedings. And then, on June 5, Spector's true hair was finally revealed in a mug shot. In the least-shocking news ever, the world now has definitive proof a bald scalp is all he really boasts.
Spector, 69, was found guilty of second-degree murder and sentenced to 19 years
in North Kern State Prison in Southern California. He will remain bald throughout his incarceration – the facility does not allow wigs.
But hair enthusiasts may be able to see yet another side of Spector in the future: he's planning to return to the courtroom to appeal his conviction.
