[show]Many speculations have been made if Jeannies hair was real. The answer is - half of it. The show required lots of quick changes for Barbara Eden. In order to expedite the hair changes, many wiglets, hairpieces and hair falls were used. Ms Eden's real hair was actually styled in a French knot at the back of her head while her bangs were Brushed forward. The various hairpieces were then pinned over the French knot. Her famous Jeannie ponytail hairdo was actually 3 different hairpieces - a false ponytail, a braid wrapped around her cap, and two side swept pieces under the braid to mask pinning. The hairdos developed as the show progressed. As seasons changed the length of the hairpieces used became longer. In earlier seasons her flip hairdos were above her shoulders in later seasons below her shoulders, and in the final season was all the way down her back. These were all false hair "falls." According to Barbara Eden's interview on the Wendy Williams talk show, it took 3 hours to get her hair and body makeup done. In the first season her own hair was so short the Jeannie hairpieces were "practically nailed on."
