[Video] The TODAY Show Did THE WORST Hair Makeover EVER on a Black Woman

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?

  1. So this is why that Indian lady had all those black girls on her youtube channel teaching her about black hair. She got bashed for this awful looking hairstyle. I literally laughed out loud when she was done. Like that poor woman.

  2. She should not only be ashamed but she needs to apologize to that model and to everyone that watched that show.. that was terrible and she should never be able to do hair as long as she lives..
