When Krista Allen landed the role of Dr. Taylor Hayes on “The Bold and the Beautiful” she knew she had to make the role her own, while still seeming familiar to fans. “Nobody can ever replace Hunter Tylo. I am just stepping into the role of a character, and that character lives on forever, no matter who is playing her,” she told Soap Opera Digest.
As previously mentioned, Allen decided to sport a wig that resembled Hunter Tylo’s hair on the show. However, fans were not convinced by the hair piece, and often voiced their disapproval of Allen’s wig on social media. “Maaaaaan if y’all don’t take that Party City wig off Krista Allen’s head,” one fan tweeted.
Per Showbiz Cheat Sheet, Allen finally ditched the wig during a February 2022 episode of the long-running soap opera — to the delight of many viewers. “Krista Allen’s hair looks SO cute today … The wig is gone!!,” wrote one excited fan on Twitter. Speaking to Bold Live, Allen herself revealed that she didn’t care for the wig in question. “You guys will never have to look at a wig again,” the soap star commented, adding that she decided to grow out her real hair and dye it instead.
