Love, like, or tolerate, Wendy “How you doin” Williams is an icon for so many reasons and in so many ways. Wendy Williams, an American – straight out of Asbury Park, NJ – broadcaster, businesswoman, media personality, and writer, is perhaps best known for her nationally syndicated show, The Wendy Williams Show. Still, this fierce and fabulous diva’s got a track record of firsts, street cred, and the hair to match. This post is her hair story, curated from a few sources around the web.
Wendy, who is very outspoken about having thin hair, chooses to wear wigs because she loves the fullness and versatility of styles she can rock. Plus, as a woman in the limelight, the amount of heat styling that goes into looking like perfection is quite damaging. So, throughout the years we’ve seen her rock nearly hundreds of different wigs varying in color and length.Read the entire article at HypeHair.com
Wendy shared photos on Instagram from her days as a radio DJ before she made a name for herself on the small screen.
Her fans couldn’t wait to comment on the photos posted during the COVID-19 lockdown. “Oh we like you with black hair,” wrote one, while another said: “Beautiful colour hair on you.”
Wendy often chats about her wig collection on her Wendy Williams Show and revealed the reason she wears them is because of a thyroid disease.
“People think it’s a vanity thing,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “But I have a thyroid disease and there are a few by-products of having a thyroid disease that a lot of people aren’t aware of.”
Wendy pointed out that one of these is thinning hair and added: “I’m not bald, but my hair will never thicken up. So wigs are fun and wigs are cute. I would never rock my real hair now other than at my house.”
Wendy has a huge collection of wigs and even launched her own line called Wendy Williams Hair World.
She said of the range: “Beauty is about diversity. No matter what their style, attitude or skin tone, all women are beautiful, and my goal with this line is to help them look and feel their best.”Read the entire article at HelloMagazine.com
