The US Bureau of Prisons indeed lists hair dye as one of its items for sale, at $9.10 (£7). Ms Maxwell said she had been cutting her hair with nail clippers provided by guards at the jail, according to quotes obtained by documentary filmmaker Daphne Barak and shared with the Mail on Sunday.
Ms Maxwell listened intently during the hour-long hearing on Monday to resolve issues related to jury selection, leaning in close to one of her attorneys and whispering into his ear.
In an intimate moment, a second member of her defence team, Jeffrey Pagliuca, stroked Ms Maxwell’s forehead before brushing hair from her face.
A third attorney, Bobbi Sternheim, even rubbed Ms Maxwell’s shoulders at one point.
Ms Maxwell turned to the public gallery on several occasions to smile at her sister, Isabel, who regularly attends the hearings.
Epstein’s high-profile connections with world leaders like Prince Andrew and former presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have put a worldwide microscope on Ms Maxwell’s trial.
Reports that investigators seized Ms Maxwell’s address books sparked speculation that the trial could explore Epstein’s connections, but the judge has made clear there will be no name-dropping at trial.
She said only certain pages of an address book, which shows a section naming the alleged victims under the heading “massage”, will come into evidence.
Judge Nathan blocked prosecutors’ attempt to introduce emails they said would show Ms Maxwell tried to select women for other men.
