Get ready to see the wildest ‘do you’ve ever seen Oprah Winfrey sport. The OWN creator covers the September issue of O, the Oprah Magazine and wears a wig so massive it earned the name “Wild Thang.”
Oprah looks beyond fabulous as she models the 3.5 lb wig on the magazine cover, which appropriately features the cover story “Let’s Talk About Hair!” But, as Oprah likes to teach us, it’s on the inside that counts, which in this case means what’s on the inside of that huge hair accessory.
As part of the article, Oprah took off the wig and modeled what her hair looks like “au naturel,” which can be viewed below. “No wig, weave, perm, braids, twists, extensions, curling iron, straightening comb, or blow-dryer,” she says in the “What I Know For Sure” page.
Don’t expect to see “Wild Thang” again, either. “As much as I enjoyed hanging out with Wild Thang,” Oprah says in the article. “I know for sure that your true crowning glory comes not from what’s on your head but from what’s in your heart.”
