Article Title: If black TV stars are treated so differently, what can the rest of us expect?


Article Summary

In this article, the author touches on the topic of hair discrimination affecting many black TV stars.  The author has interviewed many a black TV stars all of whom attest to the fact that they have to pay for their own hair styling for the fear of getting a botched hair job by the on-set stylist. One of the black stars says that this is because Hollywood hairstylists are one-size-fits-all and that ‘all’ does not include black hair. She says that this is unfair as her white peers get their hair done on set as a part of the standard pre-production process. The author reveals that she often wears wigs so that, in the event of catastrophic styling, her real hair will survive intact. She thinks that the studio should stop thinking of black hair as a specialist situation and invest time and money for their hair and makeup.
