Kandi Burruss Modeled on a Box of Hair Dye


Kandi Burruss has had just about every profession out there. She was a member of the girl group Xscape, she’s a Grammy-winning songwriter, Real Housewives of Atlanta veteran, Broadway star, restauranteur, web series host and intimate toy entrepreneur. But one job you may not have known she had — hair dye model.

In a #TBT post on Instagram, Burruss shared a photo of herself modeling on a box of Optimum Care hair dye, which you can still find on shelves today!

“Somebody tagged me & said they saw this hair color box in the store recently,” she wrote, calling out past Xscape member, Tamera Coggins-Wynn, on the cover of a box next to hers. “@tamera_wynn & I took these pics when we were 18yrs old… please tell me why #OptimumCare is still using 20yr old pictures on their boxes??? Y’all haven’t changed colors or packaging yet? #TBT”
