Oprah Winfrey with longtime hairstylist Andre Walker

*After three decades, Oprah Winfrey’s hairstylist Andre Walker is leaving the nest to focus full time on his own line of products.

“I’ve been with Andre for 30 years—longer than I’ve been with Stedman!” Oprah says in the latest issue of O magazine.

The TV titan met Andre in 1985, when she was the host of “AM Chicago” and Walker sent her a letter saying he could make her hair look better. “And we’ve never had a fight,” Oprah added.

According to O:

Walker is transitioning from his day-to-day styling duties to focus on his haircare line, available at AndreWalkerHair.com. Fittingly, his last O cover—this month’s glam trifecta—showcases his incredible range. “Andre can create so many styles,” says O director Adam Glassman. “But he always makes sure Oprah looks like Oprah.” As for the man himself: “Working with Oprah has been life changing,” says Walker. “It’s taken me from the White House to the slums of Mumbai to Tina Turner’s house in the South of France. And along the way, it’s given me a great spiritual teacher.”
