Tyra Banks Flash Mob Flaunts Real Hair

Tyra Banks Flash Mob Flaunts Real Hair

Tyra Banks and her flash mob strip down to flesh-colored body suits and toss away their weaves in New York City’s Union Square on Monday morning (August 18).

The 35-year-old talk show host will trade in her trademark weave and debut her never before seen “natural hair” on the Season 5 premiere of The Tyra Banks Show on September 8 @ 4PM ET/PT on The CW.

Tyra said, “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!”

    Funny, how people are hair obsessed. Anyone who says bad things about black women has not had the pleasure of being with stunning and beautiful black women. They are so diverse. They come in all shapes sizes, colors and hair types. But no need to debate this here on a celeb blog. Racism against black people has been rampant for centuries. Comments here are proof of that. And then people judge black people for crying racism in certain situations. Black people are the most discriminated people on the planet. Why? Because they are distinct, unique and a mystery to non-Blacks. God judges in the end. He really does. Black women are beautiful: everyone from Grace Jones, to Lauryn Hill, to Iman, to Vanessa Williams, to Gabrielle Union, to Lena Horne, to Billie Holiday, to Naomi Sims (former model). I am not black but my parents taught me to honor and respect black people for their strnegth and beauty. Our hair – white hair – is prone to lice whereas black hair is not – now they could attack us for that but what would be the point? I know women who lost all their hair due to chemo therapy. Seriously, what is the point ob being obsessed about something you lose down the line anyway? Tyra is still dumb as bricks though.

    Also, when a black woman has straight hair, it is not fake: it means she put a straightener in it. Some white women with curly hair – Jewish women, etc – do it too. A lot of Latinas especially Dominican and Puerto Rican women straighten their hair. They call it a “relaxer” – a chemical straightener. This is very different from a weave. Ok, can you tell I have gay black male hairdresser friends…lol! They can tell a weave a mile away! lol. I know a black couple with wavy hair who had a straight haired daughter who looked kind of Indian. Some recessive gene thing I guess…

    1st of all i hate her, period
    2nd i hate it when girls wear weaves, not only do you look stupid because it’s obvious it’s not your hair, you look shallow that you need to wear fake hair to make yourself feel better

    They don’t straighten their hair.

    They weave and wear wigs.

    Look at Wendy Williams, the tranny.

    Just because everyone has different hair textures does not make it ok for people to be rude. Hiding behind a computer tends to give alot of people an ego boost but still shows their ignorance. If Tyra as crazy as she is wants to show her natural hair good for her. Not all black women wear wigs or weaves either. Im guessing none of you have heard of a relaxer? Everyone should just keep degrading opinions to themselves. I know all people are entitled to their opinions but some people go overboard when telling what they think. In the end its not about hair at all but respect that should mean the most. Ok enough of that lol…OORAH!

    Jane Says:

    I LOVE African hair types! Whether it be textured and wild or curly. I have long, thick and very straight hair which would never hold a curl, so give me hair with texture and any day. By the way, whats with the racist comments??

    diane Says:

    Tyra, are you going to rock your real hair for one episode only, or are you going to switch between your real hair and a wig during your regular season? To rock it for one episode only is a waste of time if you are trying to instill natural beauty into the young generation. Why make a big deal of it, just simply rock your own hair when you want to. That’s what I call natural beauty. One time only, doesn’t mean a thing!

    I am black and my hair is not wirey and matted, in fact it is quite beautiful. It may not be wavy, straight or soft as Caucasian hair but i wear it proudly and i LOVE it. Some black people choose to wear weave but many black people in the Caribbean appreciate their hair and wear it in braids, twists or locks. Everyone including Tyra has the right to wear thier hair however they choose.

    mkly Says:

    # 23…..why are you lying to yourself…i mean really….do you actually think black people have ” beautiful hair”…the beautiful part is what i don’t get………some history books can prove to you that black people most certainly donot have “beautiful hair”…….
    plus……..its the truth…search it up and you’ll have a good look yourself….

    mkly Says:

    well…everyone…….no one can be or is better than anyone else……….no matter how much they try to be better than others they will not be ……no one is perfect…….therefore we are all beautiful in our own ways….whether its your smile….your personlity……your face…..or your hair….we have all something to be proud of…..hey black people may not have ” beautiful hair”…but come on…half of them look like models………they all have nice white teeth…….they are as tall as ever…and have great bodies…now thats their beauty……some of them also have nice eyes…..some….not all….

    Because we all know white women do not wear weaves and hair pieces. Please. Britney Spears is an example. Paris Hilton wears extensions. Jessica Simpson and Paris have their own line of hair extensions. Black women are not the only race of women who wear fake hair. And are we really getting our panties in a bunch about the texture of black hair? Like someone stated above its just hair. Chris Rock has a movie coming out soon about this very thing. I suggest more than a few people go see it when it comes out. And calm your nerves.

    I thought I was on the wrong site for a second. The comments are on some Perez Hilton thing right now. Very tacky.
