Today, her tresses are "laid for the gawds."
Aside from being the Queen of daytime television and the CEO of a media empire, Oprah is known for her (dare we say iconic) hairstyles. From her teased hair in the 80s to her flipped out bob in the new millennium and her current long tresses, Oprah’s hair has always made a statement.
We have Andre Walker to thank for these mane moments. Oprah’s longtime stylist and friend Andre Walker has worked with her since the ’80s and even created his own special hair care line.
