It’s August, so heat and humidity will be at an all-time high. Whether you are fresh out of the pool or need to keep your hair off your neck, a quick and easy hairstyle is needed in your arsenal of beauty looks. The TODAY Show had Deepica Mutyala, their on-air beauty expert and style tastemaker, showing quick and easy one-minute hairstyles for summer.

Sounds great, right?

Until she completely fails at doing the Black model, hair. In her “before” photo, you see a photo of her beautiful hair in ringlets and curls.

Deepica attempts to give her an effortless look, with a one-minute “piled up pony.” The piled up pony, is essentially a side ponytail. She struggles to put the models’ hair to one side and then leaves out her bangs, but has them fan out. Essentially, no Black woman would wear this hairstyle.


The host says, “It helps to be gorgeous, Malia.”

Yes…because she looks absolutely crazy on national TV with that ‘who did it and ran’ look. Is anyone else sick of hairstylists, “beauty experts,” and makeup artists that are not “experts” or “professionals” at all, because they can only do their craft on select demographics?

They completely failed on this Black woman’s hair. Malia, come to HelloLive!, we’ll show you how to do a great hairstyle!  Watch the entire hair-mess, here.
