Slide show: Hair that makes the celebrity

On Monday, Leif Garrett was arrested for drug possession. Former dreamboat pinup Garrett is known for many things: a brief late-’70s recording career, a brief early ’80s acting career, possibly the most depressing “Behind the Music” biopic ever. But mostly, he is known for his hair. His loose, golden, shaggy hair. Long after his films have been forgotten (“Cheerleader Camp,” anyone?), and long after we’ve stopped gawking at his demoralized, addled mug shots, it’s that shag that will be remembered.
