Don't it make your black hair pink? Only Janet Leigh's hairdresser knows for sure, after the actress filed a $4-million suit in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging that her coiffiste , Louis Licari, told Leigh he could bleach her hair blond for a film role without damaging her hair. But according to the suit, Licari's first attempt at coloring Leigh's hair resulted in its taking on a slightly rosy hue. Attempt No. 2? Solid pink, plus hair that became "very stiff and portions of (her hair) falling out," according to the suit. Leigh added that she had to buy wigs, undergo scalp treatments and suffer embarrassment--$4-million worth. Attempts to reach Licari through his attorney were unsuccessful.
