This is definitely not the first time that the supermodel became real with her avid fans about her hair. In a 2009 interview, she revealed that she has been sporting "fake" hair since 17.

During her appearance, Banks wore her natural tresses and disclosed to the host that it felt liberating. The star also described her natural hair texture as "very kinky."

Banks, who became the first black woman on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, shot to stardom in the '90s. She has been known as one of the most popular faces in fashion.

Another iconic moment of her career was when she graced the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue solo in 1997. Banks is also the creator of the hit reality television series, "America's Next Top Model."

Aside from her very successful career, Banks is also a doting mother to her son York Banks Asla, who was born via surrogate. She shared the four-year-old with her then-partner, Erick Asla.

Banks is currently the host of "Dancing with the Stars." She joined the hit show after Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews were removed. Since its debut in 2005, Bergeron hosted the series.
