An elegant way to officially declare yourself as Marvel royalty.
Karlie Kloss chopped off 7 inches of her hair in 2013. Everyone, from the New York Times, to Vogue, freaked out. Kloss said, "having short hair actually takes the focus off your hair and puts the focus on you. I'm starting to realize that it's all about confidence."

Natural blonde hair -- what's that? The brighter the platinum, the more stylish the wearer.
