Celebrity Hair Weaves: Tiny & Shekinah’s Weave Trip, Plus Kim Kardashian Goes Weaveless
It seems like everyone wears hair weaves these days. And, reality TV stars are definitely no exception. Reality stars such as Kim Kardashian, Tameka “Tiny” Harris and her hair stylist, Shekinah Jo have made it almost “unbeweaveable” to go without virgin hair extensions. And, now, VH1 has done the most. The network now has a new reality TV show coming out featuring… wait for it… hair weaves.

Tiny & Shekinah Take a Weave Trip on VH1
Tameka “Tiny” Harris made her reality TV show debut on BET’s Tiny and Toya in 2009. She played alongside Antonia “Toya” Wright, ex-wife of rapper, Lil Wayne. Then, she made a reality TV comeback on VH1’s T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle in 2011.
And, that’s where we met Tiny’s friend and hair stylist, Shekinah Jo. It took a while for the audience to warm up to the boisterous, country-slurring hairdresser who worked out of her home at the time. But, once she began to wear on viewers, they simply fell in love with her.
Since then, Shekinah has continued to make appearances on T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle. She’s also continued to hook Tiny up with the gorgeous virgin hair extensions we come to know so well. She keeps Tiny’s hair weaves in tip-top shape. And, the hairstyles Shekinah comes up with for Tameka’s hair extensions are endless. Now, they’re set to go on a cross-country weave trip together, courtesy of VH1.
Weave Trip is New T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle Spinoff
VH1 recently announced that Tiny and Shekinah will soon have their own spinoff, dedicated to nothing by virgin hair weaves. The current title for the VH1 spinoff series is Weave Trip. According to All Hip Hop, the series will feature these reality TV stars going around various areas of Atlanta and Los Angeles, opening up mobile hair salons. And, to make things even more interesting, the duo will also drive across the country in their mobile hair salons.
Although there’s no definite air date for VH1’s Weave Trip starring Tameka “Tiny” Harris and Shekinah Jo. But, it’s expected to make its debut sometime in October 2014.
More Celebrity Hair Weave News: Kim Kardashian Goes Natural
As you Goddesses may well know, the Kardashian sisters truly love their virgin hair extensions. All three of them, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe, have been known to sport luscious, long locks that are part natural, and part hair weaves. Many people assumed that because of their race, there’s no way this trio wears hair weaves. But, if you pay attention to how quickly they go from thin, short hair to thick, long hair… overnight… you’d know they were sporting hair extensions.
Of all three of the sisters, Kim Kardashian is the most famous for wearing hair extensions. She’s worn them long, shoulder-length, blond, brunette, with streaks, highlights, and more. If you’re a Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan, or simply a fan of Keeping Up with Kim, you know that she’s rarely without her weaves.
