View Full Version : My hair style fell out while I was being interviewed on TV!!

Ugh! How's a girl going to represent long hair in a positive light if in her exceedingly rare public appearances, she has a hairstyle FAIL!?!?!? Mid interview, my hairstick--a lovely a popular brand, not to be named here, since I'm sure I did a botch job of inserting it in my nervous pre-interview state--just quit holding. The bun unrotated. There was sliding. A floppy tail of hair crept down and sat next to my neck for half of the interview.


Hopefully, the reporter will edit that out? And use the first, bun-intact half of what I said? Better yet, none of my friends or neighbors will watch the 5 o'clock news? Maybe they'll misspell my name and no one will recognize me...

Oh, dear! Well, perhaps it was not as apparent on video as you felt it was in real life. I am sure you will laugh about this later. (right?) :)

Don't worry. I think falling-down buns look charming.

Sorry that happened to you. Let me name a few things that could be worse to help you feel better about it ok :)

Tucking your dress in your panties and walking into a crowded room while many see it before you know whats going on (true story)

Having a little boogie slightly exposed while your talking to a person who has no idea what personal space is :)

Being at a public bathroom, your not the one who filled the room with the new aroma but your walking out of the stall as a new person walks into the bathroom, and of course they think it's you!!

I hope this helps!!!

Oh no. What an embarassing moment. Perhaps no one will notice. Was it the sort of interview where a messy bun would be acceptable? :confused: I think less than perfect buns can look really pretty and sexy.

Whew! Thanks, ladies.

I do like a low and loose bun, but I wondered how a bun in the act of unraveling would look on TV, especially as the interviewee stuttered over her words trying not to think about the suddenly flopped hair. Luckily, I just caught the story on the news, and they only used a distant shot of me, and in it my bun was behaving. :eyebrows:

And Sunshine, a very big thank you for that bit of perspective. Indeed, it could have been far, far worse!!

Glad it turned out....what were you being interviewed about?

Oh, I can understand the embarrassment! :o My hair has started to fall down at work before too. I don't think anyone noticed though, and I fixed it in time. It happened more in the beginning when I first started using the hair sticks and didn't get them inserted right.

Don't worry about it. As long as it's not pulling in a painful way, I let my buns half fall out quite often - they look better softer and looser, and one of my halfway-down buns is among people's favorite pictures in my photo journal.

Falling out buns are sexy. It was a good thing.

Falling out buns are sexy. It was a good thing.

Which is exactly why I had a mild panic when mine came down in the middle of a counseling session with a student.

I think you have to look at this quite differently ;)

All the guys with an unspoiled perception of beauty will sit in front of the tv and go: "I can't believe it, that's so pretty!!!!!!!!"

Sometimes god pulls a few strings, and sometimes a few sticks... the interview was about hair after all :D
