Daniel Radcliffe Gets Hair Extensions

Miley Cyrus isn’t the only star going from a pixie to a bob with a little help from fake hair. Daniel Radcliffe has undergone a similar transformation, though his new look isn’t for fashion’s sake — it’s for a role.

While appearing on the U.K.’s Graham Norton Show to promote his film Kill Your Darlings, the actor showed off the lustrous, chin-length mane he has to wear for his role as Igor in the upcoming film Frankenstein. He didn’t have time to grow out his own hair, however, so the longer look comes courtesy of some brand-new hair extensions.

Or as he put it on the show, “real dead human beings’ hair … it’s from, I assume, a dead person or a person who donated their hair.” While dead human hair would add an appropriately macabre element to the Frankenstein shoot, we think it’s safe to assume that fellow guest Mary Berry was correct when she guessed it was likely from someone who cut their hair to sell for extensions.

What do you think of Radcliffe’s longer locks? Should he make the look permanent?

Honestly his hair was his best feature, especially in goblet of fire. When he cut it, i stopped watching his films after that. I don’t know what it was, just when i began to watch OOTP, it wasn’t the same. To most he may look better with his hair all cut, but i will always love him best when in goblet of fire hehe (:

it looks so real! How do they do that with such short hair? He looks much older with long hair.

Love the long hair!! But I’ve always been a sucker for a guy with long hair. I mean, my husband has long hair, and I love it.

Reminds me of Jackson Rathbone, in a grunge, oily grown up kinda way.
