High School Musical star Monique Coleman wore a variety of headbands in the 2006 movie and she recently revealed exactly why that was.
In an interview with Insider, the 40-year-old said it was because the crew didn't know how to work with Black hair. She suggested they make the headbands a part of her character's style in hopes of helping them avoid the hassle of trying to fix her hair in a short time before filming began.
"The truth is, is that they had done my hair, and they had done it very poorly in the front," said the actress, who played as Taylor McKessie.
