Abbie Mills' Hair

 

Can't they try something else? Personally, I'm not feeling it. And Nicole Beharie has had other much more flattering hairdos....

If she switched back to this, "Abbie" would look more like "Jenny".

  1. Oh yeah.. I'm so not feeling Nicole's hairdo. Its plain to the point where you can't classify it as a hairdo and her clothes..arghh!. While I get that she's working and that it wouldn't look right wearing flashy clothes on her job ,she ALWAYS wear the same thing. It's kind of funny when they joke about Tom Misons character,
    Ichabod wearing the same clothes/not shaving, but beautiful as Nicole is..she can use a little updating on the hair and wardrobe.

    1. This is the perfect role for braids/twists - efficient hairstyle for an efficient woman. The weave is so shamelessly obvious and so poorly done that it's just downright appalling.

  2. Girl, I did a marathon last night and said the same fuckin thing. Get rid of that tired-ass weave already! It's like it's meant to make her as unattractive as possible--which is impossible. We all know that Abbie's hair would have been secured in braids in a low bun that's neat, professional and most importantly, out of the way. That weave on her head looks like a dead cat's ass.

      Meanwhile, Katrina's always conveniently dolled up to perfection.

    3. Yeah...what is that about? Who gets to look their best in friggin' purgatory? I mean, if you can get THAT dolled up in purgatory, why work your ass off to go to heaven? Are we even allowed to show all that cleavage in heaven????

    4. Even though FOX is spot on with SH, it's like with their women of color, they seem to intentionally "deglamorize " their female leads. I mean.. look at Lucy Liu, Taranji P. Henson...both are beautiful women,but they have that just-go-out-bed appearance while , like many of you mentioned on here, keeping their White female characters glamorous as ever.. That's ok..people seem to love the show no matter how she looks.

    5. Mm-hm - that's what they did with Guinevere & Morgana on "Merlin".

  3. Thank you! I thought I was the only one who felt that way about her hair. I didn't want to see another beautiful black actress get a lead role in a tv show, which is a great feat in Hollywhite, for me to just to turn around and have a Gabby Douglass moment. Although I never thought that about Gabby, It was the first thing I thought about Nicole. She looks a 1000 times better natural. She is gorgeous in that second pic.

    1. Indeed; that one's the most flattering.

  4. Maybe they're afraid if she wore her hair natural, Tom would spend all day trying to resist touching it. ;)

    A few weeks ago, when I was at my sickest, two nurses took the opportunity to cop a feel of my hair. Hubby literally snatched me away from them. Asians can be just as foolish as whytes. One colleague of mine, who already sneaked up on me once, freaks the hell out of me. Every time we have a conversation, she looks at me like she's doing everything in her power NOT to touch my hair. She literally licks her lips in anticipation. These days, I never ever wear it down. It's always braided because I fear being pounced upon. Even then, the smaller the braids, the more desire people have to maul me. I wish I were joking.

    Anyway, they really need to remove that mess from Nicole's head. It's as ridiculous as sheriff deputies NOT wearing their uniforms.

    1. I can relate. Since I started wearing braids all kinds people have been coming up to me, men and women, with no shortage of creeps who just stare at me the whole time not saying anything. Thank God no one has asked to touch them, but it's like they are some kind of lure to them.

    You are BETTERN me, Hateya! I would give that bitch a centimeter just to see how far she'd go with it and then I would slap the dog shit outta of her ass, and then backhand her teeth out for good measure. I would not modify my personal style to reduce the number of asswhuppins I dole out, but I'm confrontational and crazy. That bitch would have caught a quick right and let the chips fall where they may. Shit.

    I smooth told my new principal that if a colleague comes into his office complaining that I slapped their freakin' jaw loose, the only question he need ask is, "Well did you touch her hair?" I ain't playin' with these mofos!

    I don't think they're sheriff's deputies, tho. I think they are detectives under Captain Irving. I never understood having a sheriff's office and the cops in the same jurisdiction.

      Yeah, they need to clear that one up, 'cause I'm confused as hell.

    Okay, I laughed aloud when I read this shit, even as it creeped me out. Maybe you should bring this ish to her attention and make her understand how she comes across.
