Celebrity Spotlight: Oprah Winfrey
By: Delores Hurst, The HBN Writer for Online
Oprah is an icon. She is recognized as one of the most loved and powerful women on television. Throughout her career, she has inspired and directed many people’s lives and paths. Oprah is a real woman who stands up for what she believes in and isn’t afraid to talk about her beliefs. She is the same way when it comes to her hair as well. Recently covering her magazine wearing a huge afro, she raised many hair questions and opened her fans to the discussion. Oprah has always had a great support team when it comes to her hair. Having been natural for years, her stylist has found many ways to keep her hair healthy and growing.
In 2009, Oprah stopped questions of whether her hair was real when Comedian Chris Rock played in her tresses and in 2012; she covered her magazine wearing her natural curl pattern. Many still doubted Oprah’s natural hair, so she took to twitter and posted a photo of her with no make-up and no hair care. She is indeed natural. Her hair has created an opportunity for her and her stylist feature articles on her website about the best products and techniques in hair care. Oprah will be showing off her beautiful mane in her new movie, The Butler, in theatres now.
