HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Tyra Banks kicked off the fifth season of her hit talk show Tuesday by debuting her real hair.

The 35-year-old media mogul took out her hair extensions and went weave-free for the first time since she was a teenager.

Banks emerged on stage "straight out of the shower" with her hair slicked back, drawing a loud round of cheers from her studio audience.

"I wanted to show the real me and I wanted to show the raw me," said Banks, who had her real hair styled during the show.
