Black women’s hair becomes target in TSA’s security theater

But this week, it was Oprah Winfrey demanding that we talk about hair on the cover of the September issue of O Magazine, where her usual solo feature was upstaged by a massive, perfectly round Afro.

Turns out, Oprah’s own considerable head of hair got a whole lot bigger courtesy of a faux ‘fro. Her cover co-star was actually a three-and-a-half pound wig, designed by hair stylist to the stars Kim Kimble. Who, coincidentally, was also shocked this week–along with the rest of us–when another one of her superstar clients snatched her own hair–right off.
