Hair you have it.
I don’t have much of an explanation or maybe I have too much explaining to do.
Since people usually watch TV news on a regular basis, hair tends to grows longer or lighter, gradually and it’s not all that dramatic. But when I look back at the years I’ve been on the news (officially 12 now) I am overwhelmed by the variety and sometimes the sheer volume of my hair.
This is me at WKTV in Utica, NY. The general manager liked short hair on his anchors, so I had short hair.
I even arrived at WFXT in Boston with a short bob. Fortunately for me, the managers at FOX didn’t have a hair preference. Unfortunately for my hair, I had a huge variety of styles and colors while I was there for three years. I would often change my hair to alter my mood. You can see where that’s going.
By the time I arrived in Charlotte at WSOC, I was pretty confident I wanted to keep my hair long and full. It turns out the station had an image consultant and she wanted my hair more naturally dark brown and more polished. That style lasted the longest for about two years until I got sick of it and my agent said I needed a hipper, fresher look. And my hair stylist gave me this angular bob.
So here I am, back in Boston at WHDH, and my hair above the shoulders again. Let’s see how long this will last.
