Anyone with natural hair knows there’s no style that can be executed in one minute or less, even with the best intentions. So why the Today show would attempt such a feat with a woman who appears to have never touched a kink or coil in her life we’re not sure. But lo and behold that’s what happened yesterday when the morning talk show’s resident beauty expert Deepica Mutyala attempted to create three easy summer hairstyles in under a minute.
Today gets points for diversity, having included an Asian, Black, and white woman in the segment, but poor Deepica could barely even twist the Asian woman’s hair into a rope-twisted ponytail before failing to convince millions of Americans at home that the ’90s are back and the move is to take textured hair and pull it into the tightest side ponytail ever made on the top of one’s head and shred every curl the model spent no less than two hours setting into twist-out perfection the night before while trying to create “this like bang in front of it.”
Yes, it looks as bad as it sounds. Actually worse. See for yourself in the video below and have a good chuckle with your girls. This is one of those times we hate to admit inclusion was not for the better.
