There was a rumor that Sunny’s curly hair was not real, as few suspected she was using a wig!

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin has debuted a brand new hair transformation, with a new hair color and style.

Key Takeaways

  • Sunny Hostin debuted a hair transformation on “The View,” switching from her signature curly style to a shorter ombré cut with blonde highlights.
  • Hostin was speculated to be wearing wigs, but it was confirmed that her hair was natural with some extensions.
  • She also revealed that her natural curly hair was initially discouraged in her legal career, but she embraced it during the pandemic lockdown after receiving positive feedback.

Rocking New Hairstyle

Sunny Hostin has turned her signature curly hair into a shorter ombré cut, with dark roots that lead into bright blonde hair that falls to her shoulders.”

Fellow co-host Joy Behar asked between the show, “Is that your real hair?”

She answered,

No, it’s not. I actually was at a party with Nicole Ari Parker, and she came into the room with hair that looked like this. I felt like the room shifted. I was like, ‘I want that.’ I sent a picture of her to Matthew Yates, my hairstylist, and he said, ‘Say less.’

Another host, Alyssa Farah Griffin, chipped in, stating, “It gives Bond villain, and I like it!”

Fans were loving her new look. On her latest Instagram post, one fan commented,

Sunny’s hair is fabulous. Updated and fun! She had too much hair that weighted her down! This great cut makes her look so much younger!

Another added,

Omg 😱 I LOVE Sunny’s hair!!! I’m glad she changed it bc the other way was played out!

The third one said,

Sonny’s hair looks fantabulous! Short hair takes years off of you.

Fake Wig Rumor Turned Out To Be False

There was a rumor that Sunny’s curly hair was not real, as few suspected she was using a wig.

On an online forum, one person asked, “Does anyone know what Sunny Hostin’s real hair looks like?”

Anonymously, one replied,

She looks so ridiculous on The View with that huge, fake wig. She’s over 50 and wearing it like she’s a 20 year old pop singer. Why don’t her friends tell her she looks ridiculous?? You can wear fake hair if you wish, but do it appropriately. It needs to be shorter, for one (you’re old now Sunny). It looks like she’s trying to emulate 1980s Farrah Fawcett.

Similarly, another follows, “She claims it is her hair with a few extensions.”

I know she does it to save time and to protect her real hair. Those wigs are styled and layed hours before she arrives, and she just walks in, they plop in on and she’s ready! But I’ve noticed her wigs are getting bigger and bigger. As they say, the wigs are wearing her, and not the other way around.

said the third guy.

After many such comments, Hostin cleared the rumor by coming forward with a tweet on December 8, 2020, that said,

“I actually don’t wear wigs but thank you for the um, feedback. 🙄”

Likewise, in the April 30, 2024, episode of the Behind the Table podcast, Sunny revealed that at the beginning of her career, wearing her hair naturally was frowned upon.

You know, I was told, early in my career as a lawyer that curly hair did not look professional and that it looked unkempt. And so I spent years kind of wearing this slicked back ponytail. Right? It was kinda curly in the back, but not really, and I would slick slick my hair back.

But in lockdown, she had to rely on herself for her hair and makeup; she didn’t know how to style anything except her natural curly hair.

Hence, after positive reviews and support, Hostin decided to keep it natural.

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • In 2022, it was revealed that Sunny Hostin had a breast reduction, a breast lift, and liposuction. Her decision to perform plastic surgery came because she was body-conscious, and it made her feel better.
  • Although there was another rumor of Hostin’s secret battle with a disease, it was untrue.
  • She is married to her orthopedic surgeon husband, Emmanuel Hostin, and has two kids.
