Natural Hair Debate: Is That Oprah’s Hair?

I’ve been rockin’ my natural curls for years. (Honestly, I can’t quite remember when I gave up on straightening my hair). I went from fab to fro before the look was socially accepted. So I was very happy when TOprah-Rochellehe Miami Herald asked me to do a man-on-the-street video about natural hair. The assignment was to find out what locals thought about O’s new look? Responses were shocking. It made me wonder… are people saying these nasty things behind my back, too?


Miami Herald: Rochelle Oliver collects opinions about Oprah Winfrey’s natural look, featured on the September cover of ‘O’ Magazine.
