^I wonder what she did with them. Maybe she made a big blonde throw rug.

As I recall the story, by the time of Turnabout Intruder Barrett was under the impression she was through with the series. She basically stole all the Chapel wigs (which were the property of the studio) and took them home. Well they needed to film an additional scene with the Chapel character for Turnabout Intruder and the wigs were gone, so the brown hair that you see in Turnabout Intruder is Barrett's own natural hair.

If that's the case, the stylist got her real hair looking just like a high-end lady's wig. Not that I'm any kind of expert.

The only reasons I can imagine her wanting the Chapel wigs are if her own hair was thinning, which happens to a lot of women, or if she imagined going to sci-fi conventions as Nurse Chapel. [The dedicated Star Trek convention hadn't been invented yet, and in January of 1969 nobody suspected it ever would be.]

For his first few episodes, Walter Koenig had to wear a Max Factor lady's wig that they chopped down to Monkees length, as was the fashion at the time:

Well, she actually played Nurse Christine Ducheaux in "The Naked Time."
She was referred to as Ducheaux only in a early draft of the script.

My June 28, 1967 Final Draft shooting script has "Ducheaux." I can't find any version of the script with "Chapel." (I don't know why they would have bothered to change her last name to Chapel. She's never addressed nor referred to by her last name in the script. It would have been a name change for no real reason.)

I'd guess GR fell in love with the pun on Sistine Chapel. This was right near the height of the James Bond craze, with its girl name puns. James Bond was bigger then than we can really imagine now, because we have so many outlets for enthusiasm today that nothing can get beyond a certain size. But in 1966, Bond was a global entertainment mania.

The pointed sideburns continued but mostly Shatner looked very unkempt.
In particular, in many episodes he was in need of a shape-up to take care of his furry neck. Too bad Sport Clips wasn't around then, they give free shape-ups between haircuts.

Re: Hair Changes in the 3rd season

According to 'Inside Star Trek' many of the wigs used in TOS disappeared rather than finding their way back to the Desilu make-up department. The actors denied responsibility of course.

Shatner looked his... least "kept" in Spectre of the Gun I think. His hair is all over the place in that one. Literally all over the place.

Re: Hair Changes in the 3rd season

Why do we need an explanation of hair style changes, maybe those characters woke up one day and fancied a change...

Some people need an onscreen explanation for everything.

Re: Hair Changes in the 3rd season

It just doesnt need explaining though... There were bigger changes in set decoration or costuming snafus without worrying about Mr Scott's choice in hair style.

They did that once in Stargate, O'Neill walked into the infirmary to see Jackson who had just had his appendix removed, Daniel who obviously hadnt seen him for a day or so remarked he had cut his hair... But then they had that kind of banter often where as I would find it odd for Kirk to ask members of the crew if they were doing something different with their hair, McCoy did in WOK regarding Saavik however.

Why not? This board exists as a place for fans to discuss any aspect of Star Trek they want. Judging by the number of posts threads like this usually generate, I'd say quite a lot of members here enjoy these kinds of conversations. If you, personally, don't think the topic is worthy of discussion, why not just ignore the thread?

Kirk asked first:

SAAVIK: Hold please! ...Thank you, sir.
KIRK: Lieutenant, are you wearing your hair differently?

Re: Hair Changes in the 3rd season

I wonder if Bele and Lokai should have been given Cheronian hair. As it was played, the actors stuck with their own actual haircuts.

Not complaining, I have been guilty of wondering about some of the most random details myself, its all part of fandom.
