*For a recent episode of “Where Are They Now,” Oprah Winfrey reminisced on the dozens upon dozens of hairstyles she’s sported through 25 years of the “Oprah Show,” and revealed the one she hated the most.
It wasn’t this hair from her Elizabeth Taylor interview in 88.
She forgives that hair as being in line with the style of the era.
No. What is unforgivable in her eyes was that short, layered bob from just a few years later.
“I hated that hairdo,” Oprah told the man responsible, her former hairstylist Andre, in the October episode.
“I just had to do a bob on you because it was such a trendy thing to do,” Andre explains. “Not knowing that it wouldn’t be very flattering.”
Oprah tried to make him feel better, saying, “You know what? The bob with the shoulder pads out to here… Maybe if the shoulder pads were in about three inches, it wouldn’t be so bad.”
“You have never let me live that haircut down,” Andre says.
“In 30 years to get one bad hairdo is not bad!” Oprah tells him.
Below, Andre reveals which of Oprah’s hairstyles was his favorite.
