I Love Oprah But I'm Sick of Her Lace Front Wig!

Hey, I'm here to say that I love Oprah (I tape and watch her show everyday) but I'm sick of her lace front wig, or weave, or whatever it is. The last time I remembered, Oprah had beautiful, thick hair, probably 4a/4b.

Maybe she should join NC and release the the wig to free her hair and show the world that curly/kinky hair is beautiful.

PS: I don't want to hear how busy she is because she can afford to have her hair styled everyday!

Yes, the curly hair that she's been wearing for at least a year now and it looks like a lace front wig. It's nice but can't she at least give it a rest? Doesn't she have a hair stylist (Andre)? What gives?

I think it's a weave, and I hate it too. I loved her thick hair when Andrew Walker was styling it. Even straight.

Is this the style you are talking about? What am I missing - I don't see any lace sticking out.

During that period, they insisted she relax her hair and they felt her features were too wide apart and asked if she would consider plastic surgery! (Now that's beyond insulting!) I think she went on to AM Chicago, a morning show after that, in which she wore TWA. It was really cute. It seems like she stopped wearing her hair natural when she started the Oprah show.

I respect her hair choices much more now. I think in her industry it's even more unforgiving of natural hair. Even worse than the knuckleheads we put up with in corporate jobs.

I'm glad to see younger anchors and commentators like Amy Holmes are starting to wear their hair natural. That's off topic though, sorry.

I found a video of AM Chicago. Shows Oprah's TWA:

As I always say, people should wear their hair in whatever way makes them happy.

BUT one of the reasons the entertainment industry continues to be unaccepting of natural hair is BECAUSE celebrities/news anchors/models continue to give in and straighten or texturize their hair or wear wigs and weaves.

Someone like Oprah could do a real service by proudly showing her natural hair once in awhile.
And she could further promote the cause by doing makeovers where they DON'T straighten everyone's hair!

kirsetn dunst wore them in all of the spiderman wigs.
I had no idea that wasn't her real hair! I love the style though.

I don't know very much about them. How can you tell it's a wig, if it's high quality and there's nothing sticking out?
I love Opera's hair!! it's so glamorous...real or fake.

I'm a little over the lace front too...It's time to switch it up O
