Based on a book written by Ellen Byerrum (Crimes of Fashion), Killer Hair (also known as Crimes of Fashion: Killer Hair) is a television film that aired on the Lifetime Movie Network in 2009. The storyline follows a fashion journalist, Lacey Smithsonian, as she investigates the discovery of a dead body inside her friend's Washington, DC hair salon.[1]


The story begins with the discovery of an emerging fashion stylist's dead body. Angie Woods, a stylist recognized for succeeding with difficult rejuvenation jobs, is found dead with a razor in her hand. Investigators suggest that Woods committed suicide because of the unattractive hairstyle she was wearing. Smithsonian (Maggie Lawson), a fashion columnist and amateur private investigator, is an acquaintance of Woods and suspects something more sinister; she believes that a notable client of Woods, a congressional staffer with a salacious web site, is somehow implicated. Detective Vic Donovan (Victor Webster) is assigned to the case. This causes complications due to his prior romantic affair with Smithsonian.[2]
