Secret Stylist Agent

Agent Myka Bering. Smart. Bad-ass. Hairstyle challenged. Our very special Secret Service Agent has gone through a bit of a hairstyle evolution since she first drove up to “Warehouse 13.” Remember how light her hair was when the show started? Then through the years it has darkened. But, of course, the biggest evolutionary jump came between the second and third season when The Straightening happened. No, I don’t mean all those meaningful sideways glances between Myka and HG ended (hell, they’re even stronger). I mean her hair. Hello, straight iron. All that lovely kink is gone, leaving sleek black tresses. Which, naturally, leads us to one of the great questions of our time. Agent Myka Bering: Curly or Straight?

On the one hand, I hate the straight intensely. Her curly hair looked natural, free. Her straight hair looks forced, controlled.But on the other hand, I love it. I’m a bit more of a straight hair gal than a curly hair gal – as my hair is straight as well.And then I think both are fantastic. In fact, she should alternate through the week. Wild and curly one day. Smooth and straight the next. Hello, best of both worlds.Though, I will say that Myka can’t pull off all hairstyles with similar grace. Oh, darling, no.
In the end, I think the best thing we can say about Myka’s hairvolution is that it’s clear what the endgame is.
Lesbian Twin Syndrome claims another happy couple.

p.s. Please, tv gods, keep bringing HG back this season. A gal can’t go too long without a good grappling hook.

I vote curly. It's more natural, and it looks great on her. Myka is clearly not the straight kind.... of hair *cough*

I'm so conflicted. I do love long straight dark hair, but I also love Myka's curls. I may have to watch all the episodes again to help me decide.

All I see are duck lips....

I like her lips! I'm hoping that "duck lips" comment is a compliment. Imagine what she could do with those... :)

I like my eyecandy's hair like I like my fries - CURLY.

SON was ruined for me S2, not because the plots, acting & character development were RUBBISH (which they were, shockingly so) but because hair'n'makeup straightened Mandy Musgrave's hair :-(

As a curly girl myself, I tend to love curls... Especially on Myka. But she looks good all day, any day so its all good!

I love and hate the new style as well, and I was deciding wich one of them was the best when I saw the video and I died of laughter, after that I couldn't think anymore obviously. LOL

Your friend, Rusty said...

Just as long as she leaves it long it makes no nevermind to me.

CURLS. Goddess, I miss the curls... She's still very pretty, and I think the Lesbian Twinsies thing she has going on with HG is Very Interesting, but... but I miss the curls something fierce. Please come back?

Maybe she started borrowing H.G.'s flat-iron right after she started borrowing H.G.'s flowy button-down tops? Next thing you know, she'll be wearing lots of sentimental jewelery and speaking in a foxy British accent.

And according to the sneak peak, Myka is using HG's grappler next week.

I seem to be in the minority here, but I strongly prefer the straight hair. The curly hair made her look a little childish to me, and she just looks more mature now. Also, I'm all about the older women. ; )

P.S. In real life, I would totally fall for Claudia. Just had to put it out there lol
