I know I am a loser for watching this but an episode really pissed me off.

For those that don't know it it stars two young girls, Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) and Sam (Jeanette McCurdy). Carly is very girly and Sam more of a tom boy.

Anywho, in one episode Sam wants Carly to make her "girlier" and she does. What pissed me off is to make her girly they straighten her very pretty wavy hair. I know they probably did it for affect since it's so different but why can't one be girly with curly hair?

    Oh for heaven's sake. I like that little girl's hair, too (I have kids, hence, I know iCarly...lol). It's lovely. Why is it whenever there's a makeover on ANY show, it seems, they bust out the flat iron? Bugs the ever loving crap out of me.

    Haha, I'm 18 but still watch Nickelodeon. :p

    But I agree. I think her hair is really pretty wavy and "girly". It looks like she is naturally curly. I'm sure they touch it up but it's lovely.

    Haha, good to know I am not alone.

    I don't know either. They probably just wanted a "dramatic effect". It's just annoying because young girls watch it and they can think they need straight hair to be pretty and get a boyfriend like Sam did.. :angry3:

    I'm 36 and I watch Spongebob. My kids ignore Spongebob. I love Spongebob. He's a great brain break. :goofy:

    Anyhoo...sad that they straightened her pretty hair. That Carly girl (Miranda) has some awesome shiny hair, though, doesn't she? So does Leela on Sesame Street.

    Okay, I need to just shut up now. LOL.

    But yes Miranda does have nice hair. I don't like how it seems the shows making her grow up so fast. But it happens a lot. I remember seeing her on Drake and Josh.

    Nice to see I'm not the only one who enjoys a little Patrick Star now and again! :)

    I liked Sam's hair before they decided to straighten it. She looked prettier with it curly. I don't know why show producers feel that straight hair equals sexy hair.
    My hair is: 3b-4a, at my shoulders

    My goal: To have my hair down to my waist or near my waist by 2012!

    Patrick rules. 8) Seriously, check out this chick on Sesame Street's hair. This picture hardly does it justice. It's the shiniest, glossiest hair I've ever seen:

    Don't feel bad, I love iCarly too! (My husband even watches it with me! :) And I watched a lot of Spongebob this past weekend during the Spongebob Spongebash!

    I really like Sams long curls. I wish my hair could look that good one day :)

    First off, you're not a loser for watching "iCarly." I watch it and I love it. My little sister actually got me into it. Did I mention that I'm nineteen? Haha. :)

    Anyway, that episode sort of set me off too. I noticed that they had straightened her hair, and while it did look good, her curly hair is beautiful! It struck a nerve with me that they only perpetuated that stereotype that girls look sexier and prettier with straight hair.

    I'm not much of an icarly fan, but i was watching that ep. with one of my friends and i hated how Sam's hair was immediately straightened....I'm 15 and i hate how straight hair is what is automatically needed to look "Pretty" and curly hair is labeled 'messy' or 'frizzy' or just plain ugly. It's degrading what they do on those makeover shows... :disgust:

    ughh, that episode reallyyy bothered me.
    what, girls with curly hair can't be 'girly' or 'pretty'?
    i LOVE her hair the way it is, they never shouldve straightened it.
    now little girls with curly hair are going to think to be pretty they need straight hair.

    the part that just put me over the edge was when my brother, who was watching it with me, said, "wow, she looks SOO much better." his girlfriend has naturally curly hair, but straightens it every day. grrrr.

    I agree. Her straight hair was pretty but IMO it was a bit boring and it just wasn't "Sam" or Jeanette for that matter.

    I watch this show too with my daughter. I actually think it is a great show. Every once in a while I notice something I'm not fond of and talk to my daughter about it.

    I didn't see this one but I know my daughter did for sure as she never misses an episode. It is really hard when you are trying to raise a child to be "herself" including loving her curly hair and this stuff keeps appearing.

    The only saving grace for me is that even a $150 flat iron didn't do much for my daughters hair. It is just too thick to straighten well. The only way she could do it would be chemical and neither I nor her are willing at this point!

    The sad thing is that she goes to a middle school where you don't see very many female curly girls---partly due to demographics (70% Asian) *but* the other girls who are curly either straighten or keep their hair back in a ponytail or bun. What I've been trying to impress upon her is that she is unique--and plus it'll be pretty cool to be one of the only curlies in school---since she is in a class of highly gifted kids it's only outside of her class that issues like this come up...inside the class the kids are a complete mix so they are very accepting:)

    I don't watch Spongebob but I do still love any form of Scooby Doo:)

    The episode you speak of was on just last night 8/4/09. I noticed they gave her flat hair too.

    Hah! Can't say I don't know what your talking about.


    I saw that episode of iCarly! I walked in and saw her hair straightened and got upset because her hair looks just like mine and it's not, well turned down by media or whatever. My sister was like just like "What who cares, they're just trying to make her girlier". Well, excuse me. :disgust:

    Of course I agree they shouldn't promote that you can't be yourself AND girly/attractive.

    But even so, I think her soft curls and waves are way more girly and romantic looking anyway.

    I just watched this episode today. I remember all of you talking about it on here, so I was eager to know that Carly was going to give Jeannette's character "Sam" a makeover. I knew that this was probably the episode all of you were talking about.

    I was annoyed. Curls and waves are more feminine romantic looking than straight hair; I don't know why they changed that.

    Perhaps they didn't mean to put curly hair in a bad light...maybe since earlier in the episode, Sam mentioned that she wished she were more like Carly, and since Carly has straight hair...

    I don't really know. I mean, they could've dyed her hair darker to make it match Carly's, so maybe that wasn't the reason. I think they did try to say that straight hair was more feminine than curls and waves. Sigh.

    I get where you guys are coming from although I don't think icarly meant to say curls are less feminine Than straight hair, I an pretty sure they straightened it because Sam wa supposed to have a makeover. And they wanted to make the results dramatic so by straightening her hair they got a more dramatic look. I doubt they wanted to dye her hair because once someones hair is dyed it usually won't return to it's original color, but I see all of your points to, everyone has their own opinions! :)
