Cynthia Bailey is having a honey blond moment! The cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” looked glamorous in an old photo she shared on Instagram on Tuesday, Aug. 4, of her rocking a wavy, voluminous hairstyle.
Captured from the front, the image shows celebrity beautician Gail Hudson playing in Cynthia’s tresses. Her hair was styled with a side part and chocolate brown lowlights. In the front, the gorgeous mama of one went for a lighter look and sported blond highlights near her hairline. The 53-year-old reality star was in full glam, wearing pink lipstick with brown eyeshadow and fake lashes. With the help of her shimmery highlighter, Cynthia had a sun-kissed glow. The Alabama native tied her appearance together with a low-cut sequin dress that highlighted her cleavage in all the right ways. She captioned the image: “mood: golden.”
Some people went absolutely insane over her radiant appearance. One user wrote underneath the image: “Yaaassss GOLD,” while somebody else said, “Real life Barbie gorgeous gorgeous.” A third user gushed: “Sooo drop dead gorgeous,” followed by someone else who mentioned: “Look at that face .”
Cynthia has been sporting blond box braids with strips of dark brown hair during the summer. At the beginning of June, Cynthia returned to the Peach State after spending months in Los Angeles with her fiancé Mike Hill and her daughter Noelle Robinson. Considering the weather is scorching these days, it makes sense that she is wearing a protective style.
Cynthia typically sports the most fabulous hairpieces, but she has shown off her naturally short locks on Instagram from time to time. The supermodel explained in a 2016 interview with Bravo’s The Daily Dish that she cares for her authentic mane by going weave-free at times. “There’s real hair underneath both [extensions and wigs] that has to be taken care of, so I take weave breaks. I usually try to take them for at least a month, ideally even three months is great,” she said. “During those months, I really just try to work with wigs, pop them on, take them off.”
