“Bieber Hair” Helps Fight Against Skin Cancer

Apparently Justin Bieber is doing some good deeds these days?

It turns out that Bieber’s infamous haircut, one that he no longer sports these days, helps protect against skin cancer.

Researchers Bernard Cohen and Crystal Agi of Johns Hopkins University conducted the study in which they concluded that the hairdo’s bangs protect the forehead, preventing melanoma.

Interestingly, the experiment was originally called “The Justin Bieber Effect.” Ever since Bieber’s numerous misdemeanors, they decided to change the project name to “The Big Bang Theory: Adolescent Hairstyles and Sun Protection.”

Cohen and Agi are not advocates of the 20-year-old Canadian superstar’s former ‘do. They simply wanted to find a way to begin a discussion about skin cancer among young people.

“It can be hard to talk to teens about the importance of sun protection because they often think of cancer as something that happens long down the road, but I see 12-year-olds who develop age spots after one bad sunburn,” Cohen told Yahoo!

I’m wondering if the Biebs is at risk now that he’s moved away from that circa 2009 look?

Still protected against those UV rays though, right?

As if we didn’t already love Jennifer Lawrence to pieces, the Hunger Games actress stepped off the red carpet in London last night to comfort a crying fan.

Lawrence was in the middle of an interview outside the Odeon Leicester Square in London when she saw the young girl nearly bawling her eyes out in awe of her presence. She was dying to meet her Hunger Games heroine, and luckily, her dream came true.

In the video, JLaw is seen taking pictures with the little girl and signing autographs for her.

She went right back to the interview once the little girl was satisfied with her fifteen seconds of JLaw.

For those of you who didn’t notice, Jennifer Lawrence is sporting a new pixie cut hairdo.

Too many people are commenting on the similarities to Miley Cyrus’ hairstyle.

Pixie cut or long haired, Jennifer Lawrence is still the same sweet, kind hearted person we all know and love.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens on November 22nd in the United States.
