Ayesha Curry, wife of Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry, did not drop thousands of dollars on her ‘do.
”Steph Curry’s wife AYESHA gets A BRAND NEW 50k HAIRSTYLE . . . To Celebrate Her Husband’s . . . New $200M Contract!!! (Is it Worth the $$?)”
That was the headline of a story that appeared on the website mtonews.com earlier this month. According to the article, the hair was collected from a woman in India before it was dyed and braided.
“That is like the most fake story I have ever heard!” Ayesha tells Us Weekly exclusively. “I don’t know who made it up or where it even came from.” In a tweet she clarified that her plaits cost $150.
The Food Network host debuted her new look while vacationing with Curry in Turks and Caicos on July 2.
“The vacation inspired the braids. I just wanted to be able to jump in the water and not have to think twice,” she tells Us Weekly. “But I change my hair every two weeks. It’s frustrating for the people that do my hair . . . but my mom is a hair stylist so I grew up in the salon. It’s just kind of what I do.”
Indeed, just seven days after sharing photos of her braids on Instagram, the 28-year-old unveiled what she calls a “sexy, flirty and totally mom-appropriate” lob.
“I saw the other day in a magazine that Kate Middleton has a lob now,” she says. “They called it to the Kate Middleton lob. The kob. It sounds like a salad.”
Much to Ayesha’s dismay, her husband of nearly 6 years, doesn’t weigh in on her looks. “I asked him the other day, ‘Which option do you like best?’ and he’s like, ‘Honestly, there’s nothing you could do that I wouldn’t like,” she says. “I was like, that’s sweet . . . but annoying because I really wanted to know which decision to make!”
Meanwhile, the mom of Riley, 5, and Ryan, 2, is keeping busy with her charity-centric tableware company Cheeky. The brand just released a new collection of adorable place settings and lunch boxes for kids — and it’s both Riley and Ryan approved. “We got tons of sneak peeks with all the products,” Ayesha tells Us. “So I had them say what was their favorite.”
