Over the course of America's Next Top Model's many seasons, hopeful models-to-be go through photo shoots, modeling lessons, and lots of tissues. But if there is one aspect per season that stands out, it's the makeover. Here are the best and worst makeovers in America's Next Top Model history.
America's Next Top Model's Bianca Golden took a seat in the Ken Paves Salon chair ready to fulfill Tyra Banks' vision of her as Beyonce-like blonde, only to be told that her natural hair was fully damaged. Despite the long locks she was supposed to have, Golden's hair had to be completely shaved.
Golden was told that her short buzz cut would make wearing wigs easy, which would allow versatility in her modeling career. But when she put on a wig for the first time, she didn't feel good about it. Instead of the luscious locks that Banks had envisioned for this model, Golden took to her post-makeover photo shoot rocking her short hair.
Was it the easiest makeover process? No, but Golden looked stunning after her transformation. And she made it all the way to the final four.
Cassandra Whitehead was not the first America's Next Top Model contestant to receive a pixie cut, but her flat-out rejection of the look resulted in her departure from the show. After her makeover, Whitehead found herself on a photo shoot set, faced with a request from Jay Manuel, the shoot's art director to cut another inch of hair off. Whitehead would not budge.
The choice got her kicked off set and she eventually left the competition.
She told TV Guide that she saw her long hair as a form of self-expression.
Her negative makeover experience and rejection of the look solidified her as one of Top Model's least successful transformations. But despite leaving the show, Whitehead went on to become one of the most successful America's Next Top Model contestants ever.
