Tyra Banks 'starting wig line'

Tyra Banks is reportedly working on a wig line.

The former supermodel famously encouraged women to stop obsessing about their appearance by showing off her natural tresses during the 2009 season of The Tyra Show. She was tired of black women feeling as if they had to have weaves in order to look pretty and happily showed off her own thinning locks.

The star is keen to show there are less permanent ways of making the most of your assets, which is why she's launching a range of hair pieces.

"Tyra's hairline has been inching back over the last few years, showing more and more of her forehead," a source explained to National Enquirer.

"And while her mission is to empower women to embrace what Mother Nature gave them, she's all about going whatever is necessary in order to feel beautiful - as long as it's not too drastic or permanent.

"That's why she's serious about starting her own line of wigs. It's a personal passion and could be another successful business venture for her."

Tyra is well known for her burgeoning business empire. She's now a best-selling author of teenage fiction and still fronts TV show America's Next Top Model.

Working on wigs feels like the next move for her.

"Tyra is an entrepreneur who's pretty much done everything - modelling, acting, singing, producing and writing," the source added. "Designing a wig line was logical step for her. Her aim is to make women feel beautiful, and she knows first-hand that hair is a big part of that. Tyra wants to be a huge player in the wig industry."
