Hair de­part­ment head

“I told her I can’t stand fake Afros. We had an open call for peo­ple with Afros, their nat­u­ral hair, and 2,000 peo­ple showed up. In some cases, it was ‘No, that’s a wig. Get out of the line.’ La Wanda and I had a long talk. I said [char­ac­ters] Pa­trice and Ron [played by Laura Har­rier and John David Wash­ing­ton] have to be true to the pe­riod. Their Afros can­not look like a wig. I’m not mak­ing fun of the pe­riod. I’m gonna honor it. In the end, they were wigs, but they looked real, thanks to Lawanda.”
