It’s no hidden secret that Y&R has gone crazy with the weaves that hair and make up slaps on its actresses. What we don’t understand is why? Here’s the 411 analysis of this hairy situation:
Tyra Hamilton: When Tyra showed up in Genoa City she had short hair and was quite stunning. The character was strong, fresh, and enjoyable to watch. Suddenly, Tyra began donning weaves of all different lengths and textures. With each passing weave, the character declined more and more until NO ONE wanted to see Tyra on screen ever again. Hair and make up made an ass out of Eva Marcille again by attaching some kind of animal tail to her head and sending her on set to seduce Devon. Ew. We haven’t seen much of her since, not that we are complaining, but we don’t think it can get much worse than that!
Mackenzie Browning: When Clementine Ford began playing Mac, we took an instant dislike to her. With her short hair and monotone voice, we were instantly calling “RECAST!”. Instead of taking our advice, and yours too, hair and make up slapped some extensions on Mac to make her appear younger. Wardrobe hooked her up with some cleavage-ready outfits and for a hot second, we had a change of heart. It didn’t last. Clementine Ford still kind-of sucks. Sorry girl.
Recently, AMC jumped in the wacky weave races by dropping a hot mess on top of Angie’s head. We aren’t exactly sure what they were going for, but we liked the short, curly, more age appropriate hair do that Angie was sporting before. That weave/wig/pelt is too much for us!
