Marilyn Monroe Bleached Blonde Hair
Marilyn Monroe changed the shade of her hair blonde tresses several times during her career. She first bleached her hair to a golden blonde and chemically straightened her locks (a deadly combo that would never be considered doing today, perhaps why Marilyn's hair kept getting shorter). She also underwent electrolysis around her hairline to remove her widow's peak. By the time she died in 1962 her hair was completely stripped of pigment to a shade she fondly referred to as pillow case white.
