Oprah Winfrey shows the world her natural hair on the September 2012 cover of O magazine, the makeover edition. According to her website, there was a time when she wanted to just cut it all off. “I wanted to wear it close-cropped a la Camille Cosby but her husband Bill convinced me otherwise. ‘Don’t do it,’ he said. ‘You’ve got the wrong head shape and you’ll disappoint yourself.’ I took his advice,” she says. Although, never one to shy away from a style update, Winfrey is a firm believer that changing your hairstyle can change what we see and feel is possible. “I even notice a change in my dogs when they get their summer cuts: they’re friskier and livelier, feeling more themselves once the weight of the hair is released.”
This one picture will indeed set off trending topics on many social media sites. Things like “curl pattern”, “regimen”, and “is that really her natural hair?” come to mind. But you know what, Who cares? Isn’t it CHIC!
