Patti LaBelle Gets Wiggy With It

PHILADELPHIA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – R&B legend Patti LaBelle is wigging out – literally.

The soul songstress – best known for her dance floor hit “Lady Marmalade” – is coming out with a line of wigs for the hair company Essentially Yours called the Patti LaBelle Collection.

And LaBelle says the fake ’do’s were a long time coming.

She says, “People would ask for me for years, ‘Patti, where can I get hair like yours?’ and ‘Why don’t you start a wig line?’ They’ve been waiting for years for Patti to say yes, and she finally did.”

LaBelle, who designed the human and synthetic hair wigs herself, modeled them after her signature hairstyles from the past, and says they are a cut above weaves and extensions because, in her own words, “you can just throw it on and go.”

But one person who doesn’t need the fake locks is LaBelle’s good friend, daytime dynamo Oprah Winfrey.

LaBelle says, “Oprah doesn’t need my wigs. She has beautiful hair.”

LaBelle’s wig collection comes out in February.
