The Mane Event
Andre Walker on set in New York City as he tweaks Oprah's curls for the October 2013 cover.

For 30 years, Walker has been the man behind the chair, styling Oprah's hair for her TV show, countless appearances—and every single cover shoot for O, The Oprah Magazine. In honor of our 15th anniversary, he shares the hits, the near misses—and the styles Oprah will never wear again.

"We started working together in 1985. We were both babies. Oprah had recently moved to Chicago. I've had the privilege of doing her hair for three decades. When I retire, I am definitely going to miss that woman." — Walker
