After getting her hair cut to resemble that of Anita Baker’s when she was 18 years old, Today show anchor and MSNBC host Tamron Hall kept the same style ever since, according to People magazine. However, Hall told Today.com that while she loved her haircut, others thought otherwise once she stepped before national audiences on television.
“I remember reading the cruelest, most awful thing about my hair online,” she explained to Today.com, according to People. “A person speculated about who I was as a person and even read into my personal life based solely off my hairstyle. He or she said I must be lazy because I have short hair. It was just devastating.”
The comments even led to her trying to grow her hair out to shoulder-length, says People — that is, until she learned to not let the negative comments influence her hair decisions. Once her mother mentioned Hall’s hair when she was letting it grow out, she decided to go back to her cropped pixie style.
“I’ve finally learned that this is what I like, and this is how I look best. And that’s great,” she said, according to People.
