Oprah Says She Doesn't Wear Weave!+Chilli & Friends Celebrate With Dasani+ESPN Party

Oprah says stop asking her about her weave.  Because she doesn't wear one!  Black Voices reports that Oprah dedicated a portion of her show yesterday to prove her locks--long and short--have always been all hers.  She put up this pic of her unpressed natural hair to convince folks.  Was it really this serious though? And Chilli celebrated her Dasani campaign at the Townhouse Spa in NY:

Debra Lee and Teyana Taylor came out to celebrate as well.  And Chilli's son is also featured in the ads.  Cute.

Elsewhere in NY last night, Spinderella partied it up for ESPN with fellow DJ/actor Idris Elba.  *fanning myself* More pics when you read the rest...

Liris Crosse, Deb Lee, and Teyana Taylor all kicked it.

Interesting sense of style that Teyana has...

Dr. Michelle Callahan was there to promote her book.

And Chilli looked fab as usual. And more pics from the ESPN party at Espace:

Adrienne Bailon was there kickin' it with Fabolous.  Hmmm...

Al Harrington, Fat Joe, and Winky Wright all kicked it.

Gibril Wilson, Osi Umenyiora, Chris Canty, Mike Boley and Dave Tollesson were all there.

And damn that Idris....

Thank you betty bsr for your

Thank you betty bsr for your astute comment. Oprah does indeed wear fake hair----mostly nearly full wigs. The day Chris rock --cagey Oprah was ready for him as her own hairs had been done and if you looked close you could see it clearly didn't match the quality of the hair in the numerous wigs she wears almost Dailey. I am an experienced wigmaker and have done wigs for films and celebrities. The wig she wears most these days is a center part wig . It is NOT a lace front wig . Its edges are about 1 inch behind her natural hairline The part is called a drawn through part or (these days) a sandwich part. The knots are under the white silk (representing the skin) . So each hair is knotted and pulled through the silk and this way the knots are underneath and they do not show--- so you have a very natural effect. Her own hair is parted to joint the wigs part at the exact same spot , so the part joins in seamlessly. You can often see the texture of her own frizzy front and side hair which doesn't match the smoother silkier (probably) Asian hair where it is blends into the wig . Her own hair --the front 1" to 1&1/4" of her hair around her hairline is tapered and feathered so there are no hard edges and it will brush in to the wig and blend . I would add that Lace Front wigs are NOT a new item . They have been used since the early 20s . Notably in films but Max Factor offered them by mail to clients since the 40s. In the film Little Women-- Elizabeth Taylor wears a golden one, Belle Watling's red hair is a lace wig in Gone With The Wind and Nichole Kidman wears them in almost every picture she has done. The lace on the cheap things they sell now is terrible. A lace wig should fit flat around the hairline and would hardly need the glue to lay flat. It should not buckle out . If you have a nice open hairline then it is usual to have the knotted or ventilated hair begin 1/4 to 3/8ths" in front of your own hairline. Of course if you have a keyhole or narrow hairline you have to keep the hair line back almost on top of your own. I am tired of all the misinformation about lace wigs and people spending money when if they knew more they could get much better results for almost the same price.

I am a long time hair

I am a long time hair dresser,and I know when something is real or not.Oprah does wear a part hair piece or weave.Her edges are short side and front and sometimes don't blend.She is on medication which thins the hair,so insted of telling the truth,don't even say anything at all.who cares,but if she says she doesn't lie,well she did about her hair and she knows it.Let's face it.Oprah is human,she will have to stand before God like all of us and she is not a god,but a person.Her word is not bible.Stop idolizing Oprah.Money can not buy any of us salvation.

She doesnt wear weave. Poor

She doesnt wear weave. Poor thang she doesnt know what shes missing. Yep I got long hair( so called good hair cause im chinese and black) and I still rock my weaves. Oh Oprah you just dont know what its like to throw in some curls, wet and wavy, and go from having 2inch wigs to 12 inch weaves all in one month. Natural hair is beautiful to no matter if its wavy, kinky, or curly.However if your a girl who likes options and loves to switch it up the hair store is like the candy store.

Oh Edris....The Package sits

Oh Edris....The Package sits so lovely in them jeans.... Speaking on Oprah's hair,the curly days are clearly extentions because you can see her real hair pieces are curled to match the rest.Isn't it darker when it's straight? If you live in the ATL area or will be visiting soon..check me out...I only do presses and weaves using a flat iron and I love natural hair. Keep it Silky

lipstiick: Black women can

lipstiick: Black women can grow their hair long!!! Check Hairlista.com,Blackhairmedia.com,Longhaircareforum.com, these all sites sre dedicated to women of color achieveing healthy long …black women just tend to do so much to their which is why it doesn’t grow….Oprah might be real, when you look at pix of her when she was younger she had full long hair…I’m just not sold that her hair is that thick…but if anyone is wearing a weave it’s Teyana Taylor!!! Oprah's hair is really that thick...I've been studying it for many years...but it is like mine...unusually super unbelievably thick.

BEYONCEISBETTER!!: Uhh, I

BEYONCEISBETTER!!: Uhh, I love Ms O. But come any good stylist or a person who wears weaves can tell that it’s a weave. Plus if you are able to afford the REAL 100% human hair ( you buy it buy the ounce, not in a pacakage) you also know that when you wash it and blow dry it out it will look just like the hair in Oprah’s pic. I have a 100% human hair weave and I have a great stylist so no, it’s not going to look like the fake “packaged hair” that most women buy in the beauty salons… I’m sure Ms. O hair real hair is long and healthy due to the fact that she wear weaves and she is not damaging her real hair everyday by using heat or perms…come one EVERYBODY wear weaves now days not just black women.. I'm thinking along these lines, and I don't even think Oprah's straight (pressed out) style is absolutely natural. First, the front/hairline left out is a completely different color and I've wondered if she and her stylist really don't notice the obvious. Second, the picture of her hair blown out before her press would have been more convincing had she chosen a pic without a headband on. Third, she has to get her hair styled way too much, daily, to not want to use enhancements. It seems like she has a great grade of hair no matter what, if you look at pictures when she was little and when she started her career. It's probably the case where her natural hair is long and fairly thick (but that thick Oprah? after being styled daily?) I'm a natural sista', been natural for 14 yrs, with nothing too special about the type of hair I have and my natural hair is in the middle of my back when it's pressed out. But it is that way because I keep it in natural twists 90% of the year and there have been years that I rock kinky extension twists so I don't have to touch it up as often and ultimately both styles are to keep heat out of it. I just don't know if she can claim to not have any hair extensions, quick weaves, clip-ins, whatever, given how much her natural hair would have to have heat in it, get sprayed, etc. Also, my pressed out hair would not even hold a curl as long as hers has to on camera under the heat of those lights, so I'd need some pieces added in as well to hold the curl. I want to believe you Oprah, but you could have represented the sistas with their own nice hair by still being truthful about the demands of having to style it daily. But then again, she's a billionaire and definitely knows what to say to continue her O-brand :-)

I never thought Oprah wore a

I never thought Oprah wore a weave. I've always beleived she has always worn her real hair. She had long hair when she was a teenager but it fell out and it has grown back over the years. Her neice has beautiful hair people probably would think it's fake as well but I beleive it's real. The only time I can recall Oprah saying that she wore a wig or anything else was when she was trying to be Tina Turner that time on her show. Even if her hair was a weave I beleive she would say it was because her and Tyra Banks are some of the most honest celebs in the business. Look at that picture she released of herself most famous people wouldn't show themselves without makeup and their hair undone because they are pretending to be beautiful behind all that makeup knowing they don't look like that. If she did wear a weave, she would be 1 of many people in entertainment and the world that wears one. What's up Oprah, invite me to that big ass house in Montecito.

Oprah didn't say she NEVER

Oprah didn't say she NEVER wore weave, she said at the moment that she wasn't wearing it. I believe her, her hair is very thick (even when it was really short). Also pictures of her as a young girl show that she's always had a lot of hair. But who really cares!

Diddy is the devil: WORD.I

Diddy is the devil: WORD.I have unpermed, thick, relatively long hair…and I still wear sew-in weaves NON-stop (which is why my hair grows so quickly…no heat or chemical damage). OK, so you have a lot of natural hair, Oprah. But you ALSO wear weaves, let’s not act like both can’t be true. I 3rd, 4th, and 5th this...

I think Ms. O was just saying

I think Ms. O was just saying that her natural hair is long, she has stated that she wore weaves before, and she has even had a show with her stylist showing her weave, especially when she wears it curly. Now let me tell you who has a bad weave...BRITTINEY SPEARS, her weave is horrible...it doesn't blend well
BEYONCEISBETTER!!'s picture

serene: but its like some

serene: but its like some people can’t believe WE can have long hair. If people dont ask if its mine, they run their hands through it to make sure. So it wasnt that serious, but i understand. There is no shame in wearing a weave, but some of us do have long hair, no big deal there. I would not let a co-worker touch my hair (eff dat!!) so I had to produce a photo of myself as a child with long braided pigtails to "prove" it was all natural (yes it was that serious to her, whateva). I mostly wear my hair up in a bun, it's easier and I think that is why it grows so long, not a lot of styling with heat and no chemical processing.

I once saw a pic of Oprah from the inauguration where you could see where here track was. So she dors occasionally wear weaves. and that is why the front of her hair is that reddish color now and the rest is black. Yes she has a lot of nice long hair but she does wear weaves at times. Ain't no shame in that.
