At the start of Tamron Hall’s two-day adventure on Running Wild With Bear Grylls, her hair, though covered in dust from scaling the Pink Cliffs of Utah, is straightened, similarly to how she dons it on the Today show.

However, by the next morning, there’s a slight difference: her locks have been transformed into tiny, loose curls.

Regular Today viewers have seen Hall sport this ’do before. Back in July, the Emmy Award-nominated journalist wore her hair in its naturally curly state on air for the first time ever. Though Hall often wears this curly look off-camera, she credits her Running Wild experience with why she initially debuted the style on Today.

“I brought with me one of those portable Butane curling irons and Bear mocked me and said we could use it to set on the camp fire. And if I had used that curling iron, it would have only fused the dirt into my hair so there was nothing I could do. So I just wore it natural,” Hall shares with XFINITY, adding that she washed her hair with water from Grylls’s canteen. “There is no straightening your hair in the wild.”
