Maya Rudolph talks the complications of having black hair while working at a very white SNL
“My hair was natural when I started ‘Saturday Night Live,’ but it was so thick to get under the wigs. [The blow-dry station] was on the same hallway as a lot of the dudes’ dressing rooms. And every [expletive] Friday night, we’d hear some [expletive] white guy walking down the hall going, ‘Is something burning in here? What’s burning?’ I’m like — I’m. Get-ting. My. Hair. Done.’”
