If you’ve seen those wigs labeled after Tyra in your local beauty supply stores, then you’reÂ familiar with the products associated with Tyra Banks. Better snatch up the Tyra-inspired hair styles before they are taken off shelves.Â Unfortunately, Tyra doesn’t want to be associated with the companies.
In a lawsuit against 10 companies that manufacture the wigs, Tyra claims they have used her “name,Â photograph, image and identity” to the excess of 10 million dollars in damages. ConsideringÂ some of the wigs range around $300, that may be a reasonable asking price. Tyra also seeks anÂ injunction so the wigs can be removed from the stores.
Also included in the documents supposedly is an 11 Âpage document detailing Tyra’s supermodel past and on screen credits. Just in case the court doesn’t recognize the name.
