America's Top Model Makeovers and Hair Extensions

The makeover episode of America’s Top Model is always the most dramatic episode of the entire season. Models literally become more upset at the thought of having their hair cut or dyed than when they are actually eliminated. Makeovers are always discussed in the first couple episodes, which include discussions of the worst possible outcomes. When salon day arrives, there is certainly no shortage of tears, complaining, and hurtful gossip over another girl’s misfortune.

Sometimes, however, Tyra, the Jays, and the rest of her crew get it right. In short, if you haven’t noticed, adding hair extensions is almost always a good decision.

Allison Harvard, Cycle 12:

Allison Harvard is widely known to be a fan-favorite from Top Model. It was no surprise when she made a reappearance in the All Star Cycle. The only surprise was that she didn’t win either cycle. It doesn’t matter though because winning Top Model doesn’t seem to help your career, perhaps it only hurts it. Allison’s makeover may be one of the best transformations in the show’s history. Her mousy, awkward-length brown hair was dyed platinum blond and matching hair extensions were added for volume and texture. She no longer looks like a girl that could blend in with wallpaper; she fills up the photo frame and commands attention with her uniquely-shaped ocean-blue eyes.

Aminat Ayinde, Cycle 12:

Allison Harvard’s fellow Cycle 12 competitor and member of the final three, Aminat Ayinde, also received hair extensions that completely transformed her look. She entered the competition with an afro which reinforced how tall and skinny she is in a disproportionate way. Her waist-length extensions made her body look long and lean, not to mention photograph fantastically. The waves also accented the beautiful bone structure of her face: her perfect high cheek bones and arched eye brows. Like Allison’s makeover, Aminat’s hair extensions bring attention to her unique, perfectly proportioned facial features and draw the camera directly to her eyes.

Teyona Anderson, Cycle 12 Winner:

Hair extensions proved to be the way to go in cycle 12; all 3 of the final contestants received long, wavy hair. Even cycle 12 winner, Teyona Anderson, had extensions with tight curls added to her short bob. If we’ve learned anything from this cycle, it’s that long, wavy hair extensions lengthen your body, make it appear leaner, highlight your facial features, and draw the camera to your eyes.
