Any Fringe Fans?

I know this is petty but I've been watching Fringe on Netflix and... my curly girl Astrid?.. I don't know what those stylists are doing to her! I know she has lovely curls but they're mashed into a weird helmet on top of her head that does NOT flatter her face. Every time she's on screen I want to reach in and tease out her hair into a more flattering shape!

Maybe they're trying (and totally failing) to give her some kinda fro?

Okay thanks for letting me vent in the only place that might understand lol

    I felt the same way when I watched that series. Sometimes her hair was really cute but that was rare. It's the same when she is on Scandal.

    Ah! I will look out for one of her good days then!

    Scandal is on my list to check out too. I will brace myself for more inexplicable helmet head curl failure! :scratch:

    Are we talking about Astro? ;) loved her character, she was so sweeand patient with Walter. We loved all the variations on her name. A yes, I wish they had done her hair properly.
