The 'Butler' actress wears a 3.5-pound wig created by Kim Kimble who once styled Beyonce Knowles' hair.
Oprah Winfrey goes big on the cover of her magazine O's latest edition. The media mogul dons a huge O-shaped wig and flashes a big smile on the front page. The 3.5-pound wig was created by stylist Kim Kimble, who has worked on "The Voice" and done Beyonce Knowles' hair.
The hair-raising cover is to accompany the "O Extravaganza" issue which appropriately goes through all aspects of hair. "Just revealed this new cover of O, The Oprah Magazine - one of my faves ever," the TV host hypes it up. "Let's talk about HAIR! Love this cover so much, I'm making it my new profile pic!"
"I wish I could say it was all mine," Winfrey says of her big wig. "In fact, though, it's borrowed. And it feels like carrying around an extra head." She adds, "My own hair is shorter, not quite so spherical, and a lot lighter. But that doesn't mean it never gives me grief. When it comes to hair, I'm in the same boat as most every other woman."
She elaborates, "The way we feel about our hair is universal: We love it when it looks great, we can't stand it when it looks not so great, and we all want it to tell the world something about us." She continues, "I know for sure that your true crowning glory comes not from what's on your head but from what's in your heart."
She's back showing off her natural curly hair when attending the premiere of her new movie "Lee Daniels' The Butler" in New York City. Accompanied by her longtime partner Stedman Graham, she's joined by Forest Whitaker, Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, Liev Schreiber, Terrence Howard and Jane Fonda among others.
