Conan O'Brien wears Bo Derek like dreadlocks

Posted on

Conan O’Brien has always been a perfect 10 in my book, but the late-night host looked especially alluring last night.

Coco showed off a 1970s Bo Derek-esque look, complete with real dreadlocks and a spray tan. I don’t care what his sidekick Andy Richter said, the orange glow really brought out his baby blues and ginger roots. “I wish we had time to get a slow-mo shot of you coming out of the ocean,” Richter joked.

O’Brien said he thought his hairdresser was going to supply a wig for him to wear, only to find out he had to get actual cornrows. “The cornrows up here took an hour. The ones down below took two,” he said.

He made a promise to fans last week during the Night of Too Many Stars telethon to don dreads in return for donations to autism research. So it was a win-win deal.
