View Full Version : "Bleak old shop of stuff" - real hair in ringlets?

Probably one for the UKers this..

I was watching the magnificent "Bleak Old Shop of Stuff" on the BBC yesterday (catch it on iPlayer while you can if you missed it). I couldn't help but look at Katherine Parkinson in it and wonder if those ringlets have actually been done on her real hair? The colour is right and the length is about right if you look at photos of her...

If they are then - err - wow :)

I'm rubbish at being able to tell, but for anyone else who wants to hazard a guess, here's an iPlayer link (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b018wzy5/The_Bleak_Old_Shop_of_Stuff_Christmas_Episode/) (her hair is in the thumbnail, you don't need to hit 'Play'). :)

In a close up shot, I thought there was a slight mismatch of colour between the ringlets and the hair near her scalp.... but the ringlets would be about the right length for her own hair, so I wasn't sure either. I agree though, they looked awesome.

It did make me laugh, that show - I thought it was brilliant!

I haven't watched it yet, but Robert Webb + Stephen Fry + Pretty Hair + PseudoVictorian Setting = Yes Please :)

Thanks for pointing out this show, I wouldn't have known about it otherwise :)
