One of the conditions of being a great super model is that you have to be really cool about dramatic hair changes. One of the more hilarious episodes of America’s Next Top Model is always the one where they do the hair cuts and color. You almost always see a girl crying about what they did to her hair. A girl I knew from my hometown was on that show, and they didn’t change her hair that much, but they did have to shave her armpits.
We have such a weird psychological attachment to our hair, and some times you don’t even realize it until it’s too late. I encounter this everyday at my job. I see women freaking out over bangs that are cut just slightly too short or color that’s not exactly what they wanted. Sometimes it is totally justified and sometimes it’s that their goal was unrealistic. Models just have to live with it. But then again, they do get paid quite a bit, so if changing their hair is one of the more traumatizing things they have to do… I can’t say I wouldn’t do it myself.
Do you think these models look better before or after the hair makeovers?
