Tyra Banks To Reveal Her Real Hair

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is a few weeks away and Chris Rock will be premiering his Movie Good Hair, a film about African-American hair.

Well, it seems Tyra Banks was inspired by the movie and has decided to get rid of her weave and wear her real hair.

“This season on The Tyra Show we’re taking it to the next level and getting more real than ever before by encouraging women everywhere to own and rock what they’ve got and be proud! For the Season 5 premiere, I will be doing just that – no fake hair, I’m rocking my REAL hair. This will all be going down on September 8, 2009, which we’re declaring National Real Hair Day! We welcome everyone to go natural with me!”


Tyra made the announcement this morning in New York City’s Union Square where she and a group of women in flesh coloured undergarments threw off their weaves.

Hopefully this will inspire other women to throw off their fake hair and embrace what they have.
