Ellen & Her Writer Lauren Go Wig Shopping

Ellen & Her Writer Lauren Go Wig Shopping

I don’t know about
you, but I have not stopped thinking about my hair. I don’t know if
you have, but you know when something’s
your thing, and you think everybody
must be thinking about it? But anyway, my hair– I told you a story about
my hair, the coloring of it and everything, last spring. I’m not going to
recap the whole thing. But long story short,
my hair was long, and then it was short, and
then it fell out and umm.. right of my head, like it was
breaking off out of my head. And as I said back then, it
started with the same sentence that all bad hair
stories start with, which is “I tried out a new person.” And you know that story, right? So when she colored my hair,
it turned a lot of colors except for blond, which is
the one I was going for. And it was bad. It was like really, really bad. And my hairdresser said I
needed to shave it really short, so that the color was
completely out of it, and I would grow
new virgin hair. And since I wasn’t working over
the summer, that’s what I did. I–It was like I was a talk
show host part of the year, and then in the summer
I was like a Marine. And I really planned on coloring
it again, because I got– it was like you know– I’d never seen my natural color. I’d been coloring
my hair for so long. And it was really, really short. And I knew that I
had to grow it out. And I was going to color it. But then I got used to it. And I was like, oh,
it’s my natural color, and that’s what I should do. And Portia liked it. And a lot of people liked it. And it was the
first time, like I said, that I had seen
my natural color. This is what it looked like. It was that short. And that is my natural color. So I was going to
keep it that way. But then Mary, who’s
right over here– [LAUGHTER] Yeah. She called to give me
her opinion, which was that I should go back to blond. And everybody knows
Mary, because you remember how I talked about
her rash all last year. [LAUGHTER] And I guess the
rash was contagious, because I made a
rash decision after I agreed to go back to blond. So then my virgin
hair was touched for the very first time. And– [LAUGHTER] [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Yeah. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. So anybody who gets their hair
colored knows it’s a hassle. And that’s why I didn’t
want to do it again. So I go to get it colored, sit
in the chair for two and 1/2 hours, and the
color wasn’t right. So then I go back the next
day, another two and 1/2 hours. I mean, first of all, I’ve not
cut my hair since you saw that. This is some–June
29th I cut it. This is how long it’s grown. I have not had a haircut. And so I don’t know how
five hours to color this. Some punk-ass kid can tag an
entire overpass in six minutes, and I’m five hours to do this. Anyway, I don’t know how we’re
still coloring our hair the way we did in the ’50s, too. We have–each hair gets its own
individual little foil wrapped like a tiny little baked potato,
that we sit there angled in all these ways to get their
little foils on there. And then we sit under a
heater till we’re crispy. And if we’re lucky,
it stays on our head. Anyway, it was such an
ordeal, I was making a joke, I should just wear a
wig, and then umm– because it’s easier. Oh, I should? OK. [LAUGHTER] Yeah. Well, I went wig shopping. And I brought my
writer Lauren to pay. And here’s what happened
at the wig shop. [MUSIC PLAYING] (SINGING) I can’t
keep on losing you. Lauren, we’re in a wig shop. But you are here with
me, because your wig is– Oh. I can’t– OK. That’s amazing. All right. If you– It’s good. –have something that’s
that natural, and yet when you pull it,
it doesn’t come out, that’s what I’m looking for. I think a little came out. Well. (SINGING) How many
mistakes do it take till you leave when I’m
left with my hand on my face? Are you getting that one? I’m trying it for
the first time. Is that real hair? No, this is synthetic. Synthetic. And what is it made of,
like, guitar strings? Wow. That feels almost like your wig. Wow. How are you? Welcome to wig heaven. Wig heaven. I’m wiggin’ out,
man, just being here. That’s a good name for a
shop, too, Wiggin’ Out. I think there is a Wiggin’ Out. And what about Getting Wiggy
With It or Hair We Are. Oh, that’s good. Is that good? Yeah, that’s good. What would this be used for? To enhance your ponytail. Ooh. Uh-huh. This is my mother, by the way. Oh, god. Yeah, that looks– How’s that? That enhances it. Is that good? That really enhances it. Oh, wow. What’s your name? Lenya. Lenya. We’re wig shopping
for me really. I’ll be honest with you, Lenaya. What’s your name? Lenya. That’s right. So what do we want to look like? I want to look like me. There may actually be
a wig called the Ellen. Oh. What? Yeah. If I had known I had
my own wig, why would I be doing this the whole time? So much easier. I wear a wig every day. And I know– Is that a wig? Yeah, this is a wig. That’s fantastic, Lenaya. Is that right? Lenya. It’s OK. [BLEEP] You know what? I meet so many people, Lenaya. We can get a wig
that’s very close. Is there a name for this one? Yes, they all have names. Do you have one named Kristen? Because then it
would be Kristen Wig. That’s funny. That’s very good. And we do have a Kristen. Really? Yeah. [LAUGHTER] Yes. Natural? Yeah. That’s pretty good. Oh, yeah. You know what? Anybody watching
“Bachelor in Paradise” right now knows that
this is John Paul Jones. Don’t insult my intelligence. We can leave. I think we’re done. I think we’re done. I think we need to fix this. Oh, really? Yeah. What’s wrong with this? You have the wig cap all the
way down here, so we can see it. And I think it’s on backwards. So I can show you
how to wear these. Don’t you dare. I know what I’m doing. Let’s take our ears out. This is the best thing for
my ears that’s ever happened. My ears stick out. Watch what happens if I do that. They’re cute ears. No, they’re big ears. But you know what? Obama has big ears,
too, and look at him. I know. He’s smart as a whip. There you go. Hm. Yeah, that’s better. So we can cut this a lot
shorter, right, to your hair– All right. –and get it like a 613 blond. OK. I cut my own hair all the time. Do you like it? I really do. I do. All right. Blow on my face. All right. Not my lips. [MUSIC PLAYING] (SINGING) I call my girl
because I got a problem. Do I have a big head? God, do you. You need to buy a double-wide. Is this Charo? Yes. That’s Charo. That’s Charo. Cuchi-cuchi coo. Everyone remembers Charo, right? Everyone remembers Charo. What about– I’ve
never looked gayer. All right, this is closer. Where’s the Ellen? Did you find the Ellen wig? Which one? Well, how many Ellen
wigs are there? There’s two. There’s a few. Those are not the Ellens. Ellen who? Yeah, exactly. Ellen Burstyn? You should try it. Kenya. Try this one. These are Ellen? This is insulting. OK. That’s exactly what
your hair looked like. Which is the Marx brother? Harpo. Harpo. Yeah. It’s very curly. Harpo. [HORN HONKING] What’s your name again? Let’s see. I like that. You like this? I really do. Mother, what do you think? That looks great. I think that looks great. Let’s try this one. This is fuller, and it’s
the length you want. That’s like a Tracee
Ellis Ross wig. She would wear that. A lot of actresses wear wigs. Yeah. Oprah does. You know that. Yeah. Gayle does. Stedman does. John Travolta does. Justin Timberlake wears wigs. Justin Timberlake? He does. Bruno Mars wears wigs. Reese Witherspoon does–
she doesn’t have hair. She wears the wig because
she doesn’t have any– I mean, she does, but it’s,
like, just on one side. It’s weird. Do you want to cut my hair? Mm-hm. Oh, dear. Do you like your job? [LAUGHTER] [HORN HONKING] [SCREAMING] Mm. Mm. Got a tickle up my nose. When we style the wig– Oh. –we’re going to– What? What? No! [INAUDIBLE] [HACKING COUGH] Are you OK? [HACKING COUGH] Oh, my god. You OK? I thought that was
going to be water. But– [HACKING COUGH] What’s this? That’s the ponytails. Oh. I thought it was,
like, pubic hair, because see how it’s down– see how it’s like that? So I thought it was,
like, pubic hair. Do people buy that? They buy merkins
and all kind– yeah. Merkins. Yeah. That’s what that’s called? Well, the merkins are lower. So why would they wear that? Because they don’t
have any maybe? But a lot of people
pay to get rid of it. I know, but it’s
coming back in style. Wow. Really? Yes. The bush is coming
back in style. Yes. Who knew? What have we decided? It’s going to be a surprise. The reveal will be later in the
show which one we picked out. [HORN HONKING] Ah! It was right there. I know, but– Right there. –still shocking. OK. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] All right. So I’ll show you the wig. I’ll show you which
one I decided on. [LAUGHTER] [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] Thank you. Hi, I’m Andy. Ellen asked me to remind you
to subscribe to her channel, so you can see more
awesome videos, like videos of me getting scared or
saying embarrassing things, like ball-peen hammer, and
also some videos of Ellen and other celebrities, if
you’re into that sort of thing. Ah! Ah! [BLEEP] God [BLEEP]!

    She went from ford tough to a Porcha and lost her self along the way.
    There are actual people with an illness that require real wigs and people who donate their hair to make wigs.
    Destroy it all for ratings Ellen.
