TODAY Show Hair Disaster Comes Full Circle
Remember that Natural Hair disaster that aired LIVE on the TODAY Show last week? Well, the hairstylist from that “60-Second Summer Hairstyles” segment Deepica Mutyala got together with popular Youtubers Akilah Hughes and Tiarra Monet, as well as the model from the segment Malyia Mcnaughton and TV Host Kamie Crawford to learn a few tips about styling Natural Hair. Malyia was able to get a few seconds to return the favor back to Deepica in the video. Lol. I’m happy to see this event come full circle.
The initial video went viral and unfortunately, Deepica was dragged all over social media. However, she didn’t let the backlash affect her. Admitting that she’s not knowledgeable about natural hair styling, she turned the negative experience into an educational one for herself and her audience. I’m sure that this attention was a huge wake-up call for Deepica and helped her to realize that preparation and knowledge is KEY, especially if you plan to go on LIVE television.
