Celebrity Hair Instagram Round-Up


Back with a second edition of Celebrity Hair Instagram Round-Up!  I'm somewhat of a hair stalker on Instagram.  I will openly and honestly admit it.

One thing for sure - we are definitely not the … [Read more...]

Celebrity Hair Instagram Round-Up


On the heels of today's post about celebrities revealing their natural hair beneath the wigs and weave we are accustomed to seeing them wear, two additional celebs shared photos of their natural tresses.  I've seen a bit of criticism from negative people - comments about it not being anything new and how so-and-so's hair is so much longer, thicker, prettier, etc.  But I have to say, I am absolutely loving this "real hair reveal revolution" that … [Read more...]

Beyonce Blonde Bob Hairstyle - Longing 4 Length (2)

Pam Oliver’s Hair Controversy

Pam Oliver's Hair Wig - Longing 4 Length (2)

Even if you are NOT an avid sports fan, as black women with even the mildest interest in hair then I'm sure you have heard about the controversy surrounding Pam Oliver's hair.  My father has been expressing disbelief regarding what he deems as a lack of grooming and "bad weave" all football season - even jokingly saying to me "Ebony, Pam needs your help; Send her to your blog!"  I'll admit, once I caught my first glimpses of her, I had to … [Read more...]

Queen Latifah Hair Crush – I’m Jonesing Bad!


I have a serious Queen Latifah hair crush!!!  In my opinion Queen has some of the most beautiful hair in Hollywood.  I've been lightweight obsessed since her days on Living Single and noticed even WAY back then that she was relaxer free, which she later confirmed in a hair magazine interview.  Although she was definitely famous before the sitcom, I wasn't really checking for her hair too much before then..because like most of us, the 80s and … [Read more...]
