TODAY Show Beauty Expert Deepica Mutyala believes that any woman can style her hair for a quick summer updo in under a minute. Mutyala attempted to prove her hypothesis by showcasing easy summer styles on women of different ethnicities and hair textures.
While I can’t say any of the styles were particularly impressive (the first model’s style was called “a rope twist”), the styling of the black model’s hair was no doubt the least impressive of the bunch. When asked about the seemingly intentional imperfect styling of the hair, Mutyala replied:
“It’s actually not that trendy to be perfect.”
The insane thing is the model actually had a cute style to start, only to have it horrifically ‘made over’. Take a look for yourself:
Here’s the official video from The Today Show.
While we commend the TODAY show for their inclusivity in selecting the models for this segment, it’s clear Mutyala’s beauty expertise does not extend to the styling of black women’s hair.
What are your thoughts? Should we give Deepica Mutyala an A for effort or nah?
