The overlap helps explain why less attractive people are more generally discriminated against, and why the handsome among us often seem to lead charmed lives. While we've long known that attractive people tend to be treated better, until now it was unclear whether it was a societal choice or something innate.

Jessica Simpson went without makeup or photo retouching for the May cover of Marie Claire. She's all about being natural after traveling the world for The Price of Beauty, and Jess is also using her newfound knowledge to help others — she's launching a new program called "A Beautiful Me," which is designed to help other women learn to love themselves. Jessica even serves as a guest beauty editor in the magazine's issue, and she joined Ken Paves to dole out a little advice. She touched on her own hair preferences and washing schedule, which is about as lax as her tooth-brushing regimen. Jessica said:
- On her newfound confidence: "I don't have anything to prove anymore. What other people think of me is not my business."
- On her preferred hairstyles: "If I'm in a mood to go out and feel hot and sexy, I want long hair that I can feel on my back. But I also like bed head."
- On her hair regimen: "I'll usually wash my hair and let it air-dry wavy, but if I'm just in a hang-out mood, I won't even wash it. I'll wait until it smells."
