You loved Killing Eve, I loved Killing Eve, we all loved Killing Eve.
It had basically everything. Strong female leads – yuh. Script by Phoebe Waller-Bridge – YEP.
Woman objectified because her hair is a giant, wavy, follicle explosion with a ponytail kink – MAIS OUI.
Because, let's be real, the true star of Killing Eve is Sandra Oh's incredible hair.
Look 👏 at 👏 her 👏 beautiful 👏 big 👏 hair 👏:
We're not talking about a swaying weft of shampoo-advert-shimmering-silk here. Eve has thick, dark, wild, and wavy hair. Hair that doesn’t play by the goddamn rules – rather like Eve herself.
And if, like me, you are one of the big, messy haired girls of this world it was like – FINALLY! Representation.
I mean, the whole frickin’ plot of Killing Eve is driven by sexy bombshell Villanelle crushing on women with big, bushy, dark hair. First she falls for Anna:
Then she falls for Eve: a kickass female investigator, who won’t flirt with men for secrets, doesn’t give a shit about getting dressed up, and is deemed a sex icon literally for just taking her unbrushed hair out of a ponytail???????!?!?!??!??!! Am I actually dreaming???!?
Let’s take a moment to relive that epic scene in the hospital bathroom where Villanelle sees Eve take her hair down:
Look at Villanelle’s eyes. That is lust.
So Golden Globes, BAFTAs, and Emmys, please, for Sandra Oh’s outstanding hair!
