Tyra Banks Hair, Past, and Present


The real Tyra Banks hair length and color was a bit of a mystery until she shocked the world when she removed every piece of weave from her head and showed the world her real, dripping wet hair.

I greatly admire her for her courage and for hitting so many milestones and covers of many magazines worldwide.


Why? Why not?




Everyone’s heard the stories about woman who refuse to believe that the hair they spend hundreds of dollars on isn’t their real hair, and I deeply admire Tyra for being strong enough not to hide behind store bought hair.


5′ 10″ (1.78 m)

This isn’t to put people down who wear extensions or weaves or any type of false hair, because there is nothing wrong with that. However, I think she should be respected for her courage.

Birth Name: Tyra Lynne Banks
Birth Place: Los Angeles, CA
Date of Birth / Zodiac Sign: 12/04/1973, Sagittarius
Profession: Model; actor; TV personality

In 1994, she was included in the list of “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” from People Magazine.

The supermodel likes to play basketball and tennis, but loves to box.


She also appeared in Michael Jackson’s Black and White as one of the morphing faces.

At 11, a growth spurt turned Banks into “this tall beanpole freak all the girls would laugh at.” She says at one of her interviews that, “I wasn’t just skinny and tall; I was sick looking.

If anybody called me skinny, I would just smile, then run into my room and burst out crying. It was a really unhappy time.” Aww, poor Tyra.

For the record, I LOVE Tyra Banks! She is one of my most favorite celebrities in the world! And I’ve watched every single one of the shows 😀
