When “The View” airs on ABC each weekday, co-host Meghan McCain often appears on-screen wearing unique hairstyles — from space buns to long braids.
Some have speculated that the TV star’s hairstylist might be attempting to sabotage her by giving her unconventional looks. But in a new interview with The Cut writer Erica Smith, makeup artist and hairstylist Carmen Currie said that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
“I’m not slapping something on her and being like, ‘Take THAT!,'” Currie told the publication. “I’m not telling her what to do all the time, it’s not like that at all.”
“I want her to feel comfortable, I want her to feel confident with what I’m doing, and I want her to like it overall, and she does,” the hairstylist continued. “I think it shows, and that’s part of what people are picking up on.”
Some of those styles include cascading curls, giant space buns, and glitter-covered middle parts. When McCain wore the latter style, she praised Currie’s work on Instagram.
“@ccprostyles is the most incredible, creative hair and makeup stylist,” McCain wrote. “Such a privilege to work together every day getting ready for @theviewabc ♥️🙏🏻💄.”
McCain has also addressed critics of her styles in the past via Twitter.
“People have a lot to say about me in general but in regards to my hair and makeup… I’m just having fun switching up, playing around and experimenting,” she wrote on February 25. “It’s covid and I just had a baby, let a b—- live!”

Currie noted while speaking with The Cut that she’s only worked with McCain for one season of “The View,” and she was hired by Disney — the company that owns ABC — not McCain herself.
She also said that because she typically works with newscasters and politicians, she doesn’t always get to have fun with hair and makeup.
“Working with Meghan and ‘The View,’ I get to be more creative and more artistic with the looks,” Currie said.
Representatives for McCain and Currie did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
