Jean Harlow spent every Sunday bleaching her ash blond hair platinum, with a mixture of peroxide, ammonia, Clorox, and Lux flakes. The painful procedure wreaked such havoc on her hair she was eventually forced to don a wig.

Apparently she had grey green eyes according to friends and relatives. It’s kind of funny, because only 2% of the world’s population has green eyes, yet so many famous actresses from classic film were said to have had green eyes: Jean Harlow, Myrna Loy, Norma Shearer, etc… It’s a conspiracy, I swear!
