For the first time ever, Oprah‘s appearing on the cover of O without blow-drying or straightening her hair. Oprah admitted that she enjoys wearing her hair natural as she often as she possibly can. Like many women, Oprah even said there was a time when she wanted to just cut it all off. “I wanted to wear it close-cropped similar to Dr. Camille Cosby but her husband Bill convinced me otherwise. ‘Donâ€™t do it,’ he said. ‘Youâ€™ve got the wrong head shape and youâ€™ll disappoint yourself.’ I took his advice,” she says. Although, never one to shy away from a style update, Oprah is a firm believer that changing your hairstyle can change what we see and feel is possible. “I even notice a change in my dogs when they get their summer cuts: theyâ€™re friskier and livelier, feeling more themselves once the weight of the hair is released.”
After all the makeovers sheâ€™s done in O magazine and on TV, Oprah stands firm that the only makeovers that are maintained and sustained are “those in which something inside the receiver clicks, aligning with that which is being received. The only way to real transformation is through the mind.”
