January Jones may have rocked a trendy look at the SAG Awards on Sunday, but behind all that hair product, the actress says there’s not much left on her coif.

“I have been every color and now my hair is falling out in clumps,” she tells Grazia Daily via People.com. “I’m going to have to shave it off and wear a wig.”

The star, who has dyed her hair for various rolls including going deep brown to play Betty Draper on ‘Mad Men.’ says she’s changed colors so many times, sometimes people don’t even recognize her. “I was suddenly invisible,” she says of first dying her hair brunette. “Not just as a celebrity, but to my friends and family. I was like, ‘Come on you guys, it’s me!’” But of all the colors she’s dyed her tresses, she’s a fan of herself with blonde hair the most. “My son recognizes me in photos when I am blonde. He says ‘mama.’”

didn't mean to sound so bitter-sorry if I offended anyone-but I would have more respect for just someone like us who had this situation instead of just the famous & their issues-we all go thru different types of despair, pain & sickness but we don't feel the need to share with the entire world-again sorry if I offended anyone- & laanelson thank you & my recovery is very slow but everyday is better, as I hope yours is-

Versus, there is no need to be rude.  All actors change their hair color.  If they take your advice, everyone would be in wig.  You sound incredibly judgmental.  True not all actors are smart but they have many intellectuals amongst them as well.  Kind of like the real world where you and I live.   Oh and it's "grain of salt" unless you were trying to be pithy, which I seriously doubt.   Regardless, I am not so sure that this is because of haircolor but possibly due to pregnancy hormones.  Before and after giving birth.  My hair has done the same thing after my pregnancies.  Another thought is most likely her diet or her gallstones.  I know it sounds weird but my mother stopped losing her hair after her gallbladder surgery.

Why didn't she think of a wig about twenty or thirty shades ago? Actors are not very intelligent and their views should usually be taken with a box of salt.

    Fall shopping, decoded: How to get the most from every budget

    Smart fall shopping can’t be boiled down to some set-in-stone lineup of items. It’s much more about how you play with what you’ve got rather than just racking up a bunch of new stuff; sometimes your bank account’s balance simply won’t allow for a full-on wardrobe refresh. That’s when it’s important to know what’s worth it—and what isn’t.

    Cool collective: Fall’s best products

    Beauty editors are routinely asked to name three essentials they couldn’t live without on a desert island. So here’s our list: water, matches, protein bars. As much as we depend on beauty products, they’re not exactly essential to survival. These luxurious fragrances, nail polishes, and tools are no exception. They’re the anti-basics—hardly your medicine-cabinet staples. They won’t shrink pores or obliterate frizz, but they will make you weak with desire. And that’s a refreshing change of pace. Beyond just looking and feeling great, each of these cool new things appeals to our sense of style. How’s that for an SOS?

    12 iconic beauties who make the case for the cat eye

    Like red lipstick, cat eyes owe their timeless appeal to their spectacular, style-defining range that can, depending on application, telegraph Old Hollywood glamour, graphic minimalism, or counter-culture punk—what else do Siouxsie Sioux and Brigitte Bardot have in common? It’s impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe without those heavy-lidded bedroom eyes or Amy Winehouse sans her subversive, exaggerated swipe. A mere sweep of eye pencil transformed Anna Karina from a fresh-faced teenager into a French New Wave style icon, and Sophia Loren’s wide-eyed gaze has been forever etched into our collective memory with a frame of perfectly delineated black powder liner. Today, Alexa Chung gives the look a modern ease with a signature liquid swoosh that feels right whether she’s heading to brunch, the airport, or the red carpet. Here’s a look at the best feline eyes of all time. We feel certain that Choupette would approve.

    Plus-size layering tips that work for everyone

    It's far too often that "The Best Styling Tricks Evaaarrrr"-type stories leave you at a loss.
