Some of us in the Style section (well, one of us) would like to say something about Prince Caspian's hair, as seen on the head of 26-year-old British actor Ben Barnes in "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," which opened yesterday, and can also be seen on movie posters pasted up around town and in newspaper ads.

What we want to say about his chestnutty, floppy, feathery, David Cassidy-derived hair -- without having to go through the charade of scheduling an interview with the actor and subjecting readers to the many hundreds of words about conditioners and layering that could needlessly result -- is that we think Prince Caspian's hair looks really, really good. Some of us (well, one of us) would give anything to get our hair to do what his does, especially while wearing a suit of armor on horseback during battle scenes and in other on-the-go situations.

We congratulate everyone involved with Prince Caspian's hair.

That is all.
