Celebrities are masters of illusion. Whenever we see famous women killing the carpet or a cover of a magazine, we never know just how much of that beauty to attribute to good genes, good docs, Adobe Photoshop, makeup artists, or hairstylists. When it comes to the latter, though, we’re not mad at it. Most times we just want to know how we can get our hair to look just as good. That’s why we often run to beauty salons with pics of our favorite celebrity and are puzzled when the beautician tells us we’ll need 18 inches of weave or a wig to pull off the look we just knew was their real hair.
To illustrate this point, we’ve rounded up a list of ladies who’ve been rocking some very coveted and convincingly real hairstyles. When it comes to their fab tresses we just don’t know if it’s their real hair or a real good wig or weave. You be the judge.

In case you were looking to try out another reality TV star-branded hair extension line, look no further. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Marlo Hampton recently celebrated the launch of her new hair line, Select Extensions, this past weekend in Atlanta.
Celebs like Marlo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mates, Tameka Raymond and Funky Dineva were in attendance of the event, which took place at Atlanta’s My Fair Sweets. According to FreddyO, some drama also went down between Marlo and one of NeNe’s estranged sisters. The nature of the altercation is unclear, but witnesses say that Marlo was unhappy about the sister attending her event and eventually hair went “flying.” NeNe’s sister was eventually escorted out of the party.
What’s interesting, however, is the fact that Marlo’s hair pieces were being showcased on wooden hangers. Currently, there aren’t many details available about the line, but according to attendees, the outspoken reality star showcased multiple premium pieces from the collection.
If you’re anything like me, when you can’t make it to the beauty supply store, you might take your chances scanning YouTube reviews before ordering from one of the many online hair vendors just to have some kind of heads up about what you’re getting into. What can I say? I take my sew-ins seriously. But for every legit objective hair review I find, there are at least five around-the-way girls in their momma’s basement talking about beauty supply store hair like it’s so beneath them. You can barely get a cell phone bill in your name, but you’re bragging about spending hundreds of dollars on virgin Remy? Maybe I’m getting old. Below are some signs of hair snobbery at it’s best from the horse hair jokes that accompany Poetic Justice-style braids to clearing your bank account all for that yaki down your back-y. Because at the end of the day, it’s all about finding what works for your personal budget and lifestyle.
Black people may be a lot of things, but wasteful is not one of them. In fact, we probably hold on to too much stuff for the sake of being resourceful when we’re really being lowkey raggedy, or simply reaching when it comes to the benefit of keeping any and everything that’s ever come through our doors. I know some of our parents and grandparents grew up in times where they didn’t have much and they’re always operating out of a fear of scarcity but I promise you the world will not end if you start to throw away at least some of the stuff on this list. Check out the stuff black folks refuse to throw away.
In order to be the most beautiful version of ourselves, we women have to go through some pretty rigorous beauty routines. Now, when you’re in a relationship, do you want your man to know how much work you put into yourself, or do you want him to think you were born with it, no Maybelline needed. We checked in with our Facebook followers to see what they had to say.
