The nighttime soap follows the turbulent love lives of five successful Black women in Atlanta. The cast dons various hairstyles, including natural styles, wigs and weaves.
Some of the wigs and particular have been a talking point to viewers who talk about the show on social media.
Now, Perry is giving his feedback on the feedback that was given to him.
“I want all of y’all to stop talking about hair to me, please,” Perry recently said on The Tyler Perry Show: Sistas After-Show Edition as TV Line reports. “I swear to you, these are the things I can do: I can run a company, I can build a house, I can go on stage. I do all of this stuff. I know what I do. I don’t know how to do hair. I don’t know nothing about it.”
Perry argued that he employs professional hairdressers to worry about the wigs and styling used on Sistas (and his other TV shows and movies).
He continued, noting that he pays his hair and makeup department well and that if anyone has any complaints to tell them directly.
“I hire people to do hair,” he said. “Pay them $65 an hour. You heard that right. $65 an hour. They work 10 to 12 hours a day to make sure the hair is right. That’s their job, so I’m paying them to do their job and they’re doing that. They’re doing a great job. Sometimes, things slip because I move a little fast, but they get it done. Stop asking me about some damn hair. Go talk to somebody that’s got a hot curler. Like I’m walking around with a d**n hot curler.”
Sistas is currently on midseason hiatus for its third season.
