Which Beth Harmon Hairdo Would Land You a Win at the Chess World Championship?

Today, Netflix tweeted news that "The Queen's Gambit" has become the platform's largest scripted limited series to date, with 62 million household streams to date. Woah. Of course, we're not surprised, as we, too, have fallen victim to the mesmerizing pull of one Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy). Even people like Chrissy Teigen are gaga for the "Gambit," wondering how much chess board sales have gone up since its release (spoiler alert: they've skyrocketed). But while Beth's triumph over addiction, success in a male-dominated sport and raw talent are all plenty engaging enough, one equally enthralling facet of the series? Her look. Paired with a killer wardrobe, Beth's hair transformation is just as much a character of the story as she is, personifying her coming of age and maturing confidence. Which Beth describes you?
