LOS ANGELES (AP) —  Hair has won out over Harry Potter at the weekend box office.

Mandy Moore’s animated musical “Tangled,” a new take on long-haired fairy-tale princess Rapunzel, sewed up the No. 1 spot with $21.5 million in its second weekend. That raised the movie’s domestic total to $96.5 million.

“Tangled” debuted in second place over Thanksgiving behind “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” which had been at the top of the box office the two previous weekends.

“Harry Potter” slipped to No. 2 this weekend with $16.7 million. The next-to-last chapter in the franchise about the teen wizard lifted its domestic haul to $244.2 million.
