The result? A hairdo that made her look astonishingly like a high-fashion Danny Cooksey, a.k.a. Salute Your Short‘s Budnick. (Or maybe I’ve just got ’90s on the brain.) Now, I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder — after all, our Top Model recapper, Margaret Lyons, liked the cut, saying Kayla, “got a Run Lola Run dye job and the grown-up version of Dora the Explorer’s haircut, but somehow looked awesome” — but I can’t help thinking the gorgeous Kayla deserved better than the loud, awful-waffle makeover.
Oh, Tyra, we hold you in our hearts. But when I think about this makeover, it makes me want to…give Kayla her old hair back. Whatever, she’ll rock it straight into the top 3. And it could always be worse.
