Aired on 05/20/1999 | CC tv-pg
As the self-proclaimed "Diva with a Weava," Melinda has been rocking big hair since the '80s. After 10 years of putting on hairpieces, she says she's ready for an update.

Melinda reveals her sleek new look and shares that she had been using her weaves as a way to hide. "I was larger at one time, and when I was larger, I felt I needed more hair," she says.

"I understand," Oprah nods. "More hair, more jewelry. I understand."
