This Sunday, June 21st, at 8 PM ET/9 PM PT, Lifetime Movie Network airs Killer Hair, the first of two made-for-television movies based on the Crime of Fashion mysteries by Ellen Byerrum. Maggie Lawson stars as Washington DC fashion editor Lacy Smithsonian, who finds herself reporting on more than just this season's line when dead bodies start showing up in her best friend's hair salon. Lacey's uniquely trained fashion eye catches clues that others miss. The only thing that knocks Lacey from her high-heeled stride is the sudden appearance of Vic Donovan, the guy she left behind and the one man that makes her heart flutter. With her best friends, Stella, a punky hairstylist, and Brooke, an upper crust Georgetown lawyer, at her side, Lacey foils the murderer, solves the mystery and the fashion crime itself, all while meeting the deadline for her column. Killer Hair is a funny, fashionable, and fabulous murder mystery set against our nation's capital. (MBN note: Killer Hair is also the title of the debut mystery in this series.)
A week later, on June 28th, the second movie airs. Hostile Makeover, based on the third mystery in this series, has Lacey sashaying right back into trouble when her interview with reality TV makeover star turned fashion designer Amanda Manville reveals she's been receiving death threats. When the uber diva, whose bratty behavior and tendency to take credit for her sister Zoe's designs have ruffled more than a few feathers, is gunned down at her own runway show, Lacey jumps in to investigate, one fashion clue at a time. But the one thing that can knock Lacey off her stilettos is the sudden appearance of her mother and sister who are convinced Lacey should move home to Colorado. Not only does Mom think DC is too dangerous, she doesn't like that the vintage-loving Lacey has recycled the man who broke her heart the first time, gorgeous cop Vic Donovan. With best friends Stella and Brooke, and her mother and little sister in tow, Lacey foils the murderer and solves the fashion felonies.
