The new season of VH1’s Basketball Wives LA premiered July 12, and we’re looking forward to seeing what Shaunie O’Neal has been up to. Shaunie is known for rocking a fierce cropped style and switching up her look with long lengths. Here, Shaunie shares why she likes to experiment with extensions: “They’re more of a convenience thing for me. Although my hair is trained from years of being short, I think the upkeep is a little harder when I’m traveling. I can’t just walk into anybody’s salon and get my hair done because not everyone can do short hair. So if you throw in a weave, you can’t do anything to damage the hair. It does what it’s supposed to do—just wash it and go.”
