VIDEO: Chelsea Handler Explains a Hair Disaster

Apr 16, 2014

As far as bad hair days go, this is one for the books: Chelsea Handler shared a photo on Chelsea Lately Tuesday night of her shockingly messy hair. And the worst part? She didn't even know how bad it was until a friend snapped a photo to show her.

"I can't believe that I got up, went to the airport, and it never occurred to me that, 'Hey, you might want to check the back of your head,'" the late-night host said.

Handler blames the embarrassing 'do on the hair extensions she had at the time. Needless to say, she doesn't have extensions anymore.
