‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ star Krista Allen shows off real hair after ditching wig

Allen underwent many changes for her The Bold and the Beautiful role. One of the transformations involved the actor sporting a wig during her early weeks of filming. The reason for the wig is because Allen had a blonde pixie cut, and Taylor is known for her dark locks. Allen ordered a wig from Amazon and cut it to fit Taylor’s signature style.


While Allen’s wig helped her land the role, fans didn’t care for the hairpiece. In every Taylor scene, viewers would comment on the horrendous wig. Well, fans won’t be complaining anymore. On the Feb. 3. episode, Allen ditched the wig and showed off her new hairdo.

In an interview with Bold Live, the actor admitted the wig was horrible, then said she dyed her hair and let it grow out. “You guys will never have to look at a wig again,” the actor promised.

On Twitter, fans discussed the actor’s new look. “Krista is a knockout; she looks absolutely gorgeous.
