Fun Facts about Marilyn Monroe

:star: She is famous for her lovely blonde locks, but did you know that Marilyn Monroe, formerly known as Norma Jeane Dougherty, was reluctant to dye her hair from its natural color? She was advised by the Blue Book Modeling agency in 1946 to dye her hair lighter because it would be more appealing on her and would probably lead to more jobs for her in Hollywood. She was a feminist at heart and did not want to stray too far from her natural look...interesting isn't it?

I knew she was a brunette originally. I found it interesting that she wrestled with changing her looks, considering how made up she ended up being. Thanks for the post! ------------------------------------------------------ "We're forced to bed, But we're free to dream" Gord Downie
