Hair’s the Thing on SNL

Tina Fey and SarahPalin

Memorable hair has always helped to define SNL’s sketch characters and keep the show’s half dozen hair stylists busy. Tina Fey’s “Sarah Palin” look was “spot on” according to Palin herself. When Emma Stone paid homage to Gilda Radner’s “Roseanne Roseannandanna” on Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary special, the hair got laughs before she even opened her mouth.
