It’s August, so heat and humidity are at an all-time high. Whether you are fresh out of the pool or need to keep your hair off your neck, a quick and easy hairstyle is vital for your arsenal of beauty looks.

Well, the Today show had Deepica Mutyala, their on-air beauty expert, show off quick and easy one-minute hairstyles for summer.

Sounds great, right?

It was until she completely failed at doing a Black model’s hair. In her “before” photo, you see Malia’s beautiful hair in ringlets and curls.

Mutyala then attempts to give her an effortless look with a one-minute “piled-up pony,” which is essentially a side ponytail. She struggles to put the model’s hair to one side and then leaves out her bangs, but has them fanned out. Basically, no Black woman would wear this hairstyle.

The host then said to the model, “It helps to be gorgeous, Malia.”

Yes…because she looks absolutely crazy on national TV with that “who did it and ran” look.

Watch the entire hair mess below:
