In Defense Of Zooey’s Emmys Hair
I landed in New York this morning and it affected my Emmy experience in two ways. One, I got to watch all the American commercials which really do seem more …commercial, somehow…and two, I was SO HOT during. There’s humidity here like there hasn’t been all summer.
So I realized, maybe in the moment as I watched Zooey Deschanel’s hairdo that, that it was likely not a style choice, per se, but a leaning into what was already happening. It was hot-ish in LA today. So maybe she had a case of the uncontrollable frizz and decided not to fight it? Remember some years she shows up with gigantic poufs and sometimes with lonnng curls. Sleek is not her hair.
I’m just saying. I’m coming out of the closet as a curly-haired person. I currently have a halo of fuzz around my head escaping from the ponytail that is three inches shorter than it was this morning. Life is different for us, okay? What do you want us to do?
Seriously. Would you die if she turned up somewhere and it was skinned back like a Julianna Margulies bun?
