Hair Weave Thefts Are On The Rise

Feather Hair Extensions
Would you wear them? Read More »

In recent months, there’s been a rise in burglaries at hair salons catering to African American clientele. But thieves aren’t stealing money or expensive equipment — they’re taking hair extensions, specifically silky, expensive human hair that clients pay top dollar for. At the My Trendy Place salon in Houston, Texas, thieves made off with more than $150,000 worth of the stuff. Another $10,000 in hair was stolen from a San Diego shop, $85,000 from a business in Missouri City, Texas, and $60,000 from a salon in San Leandro, California. In most cases, the thieves overlooked the cheap synthetic hair the salons carried and went straight for the real stuff.

I guess Lady Juggernaut and “Girls” creator Lena Dunham had a birthday last week, and to celebrate she decided to throw herself a birthday party. At spin class. Yes, that’s right, Dunham invited her friends to celebrate her annual name day (as the “Game of Thrones” folk call it) by making them get together and sweat it out on a bunch of friggin’ spin bikes at Soul Cycle. Max Greenfield (pictured with Dunham), who plays Schmidt on “New Girl,” was there. He apparently loves spinning. And so was Lena’s dad. Happy 26th, lady! Don’t ever, ever do this to us. [Twitter]

As much as it pains my Brooklyn heart to say this, this little video from a couple of cool Portland parents might just score extra points in the Portland vs. Brooklyn battle. These guys made a shot-for-shot remake of the Beastie Boys’ iconic Spike Jonze-directed video “Sabotage,” starring their own children. Brooklyn, I believe you’ve been one-upped.  [Portland Mercury]

The Good, Bad & WTF: The Wango Tango Festival

L.A.’s Wango Tango fest gathers together pop stars and music fans for a day of music and fun. Justin Bieber was there, which makes sense, but also “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” trainwreck Taylor Armstrong. Does she even know who Justin Bieber is? There was lots of outrageous/horrible fashion, too, because 1) It’s a festival 2) It’s in Los Angeles. So consider that we’re grading on a curve as you flip through and check out the horror show after the jump!
