Where are all the curly haired women in Hollywood? I’m not talking about curls sculpted with hot rollers and curling irons — show me women with wild, natural curls. The kinds of curls real women have. I am one of those women, and I’m always disappointed to see straight hair dominating the the big and small screen, in magazines and on the red carpet. Especially when women with beautiful curly hair wear these straight hairstyles! If you do a quick search for celebs with curly hair, you’ll find tons of photos of Keri Russell, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift, but even these women wear their hair straight 50 percent of the time at least.
Luckily, lately, I have spotted a few lovely ladies who embrace their curly hair on and off screen and it makes me appreciate my curls even more. If you’ve got ‘em too, cancel your next blowout and join these women in flaunting your curls.
And in other “I can’t believe this shit is really going on news” (because things like gun control aren’t important enough to keep us all busy), there is actually an online petition to comb Blue Ivy’s hair.

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either.

No matter how many hair tutorials I diligently study or videos I watch, I have yet to master ethereal, half-up, half-down hairstyles like this one. I almost wrote this one off too, assuming the curling and spraying and bobby pinning how-to would prove too complex for me, but I’m glad I scrolled down to see that there’s a trick to this one: a hidden elastic headband. Just wrap it around your head, and then roll pieces of hair into it. Boom. Done. It’s THAT easy. [Twist Me Pretty]
We love beards as much as the next woman — actually, perhaps slightly more than her — so imagine our delight when we stumbled across pictures of bearded men with facial hair shaped like animals.
Yes, there was hysteria. Find more photos on Huffington Post…
Spend any time on Pinterest and you’ll encounter a lot of braids. Who knew there were so many different kinds? Lace braids and French braids and Dutch braids and feather braids and waterfall braids, OH MY. While many of them are gorgeous and totally accessible for the average chick with two hands and a dream, I’m constantly seeing braids that make me do a double take and say, “Wait, is that a braid or a complex math equation?” Braids on braids on braids! A vortex of braiding! Look at some of these too closely and you’ll fall into a deep braid-hole. Seriously, these braids are so intense, only the Queen of
Braids Dragons, Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen herself, could pull them off. Click through to see what I mean…
