Oprah has rocked almost every hairstyle in the book over her 30-year career in media, but for the September issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, the queen of talk is wearing a never-before-seen look — her own naturally curly hair.

It’s no secret that Ms. Winfrey has thick hair — remember when she set the record straight when Chris Rock told her she was wearing a weave? Ha! — however, like many working women in TV where the daily singe of flat irons and blow dryers can wreak havoc on your strands, Oprah has worn her fair share of extensions, too.

In the magazine’s makeover issue, Oprah opens up about her hair, revealing the one time she considered shaving it all off. “I wanted to wear it close-cropped, à la Camille Cosby, but her husband Bill convinced me otherwise. ‘Don’t do it,’ he said,” Oprah writes in the magazine. “‘You’ve got the wrong head shape and you’ll disappoint yourself.’ I took his advice.”

It’s nice to see such a major media mogul embrace her natural hair texture for the world to witness. What do you think about Oprah’s new look?
