Black Women’s Hair Is Under More Scrutiny With The Army’s New Grooming Regulations

todays lady news
  • The Army released new regulations on Monday for hair and grooming which seem to specifically target Black women’s hairstyles. The new regs now forbid braids or cornrows larger than a quarter of an inch (dreadlocks and twists have already been banned since 2005). As a result, Black women who wear their hair this way have to either get a new hairstyle or cover it with a wig. [Huffington Post]
  • Hobby Lobby is fighting the Obama administration not to pay cover contraception for women in their health care plan, but they seem to have no problem at all investing in contraception makers with their retirement funds. [Mother Jones] Keep reading »

Frisky Eats: 10 Fish Recipes For Potential Pescatarians

I do a lot of cooking at home, but as a creature of habit, I have to sometimes push myself to try new things. In an effort to do just that, and cut back on my chicken and red meat intake, I’ve been trying my hand at cooking a lot more fish. Salmon has always been my go-to and I continue to love it’s rich flavor and meatier texture, but there are, quite literally, many other fish in the sea. Here are 10 fish recipes to try if you, like me, are indulging your inner pescatarian.

Taylor Swift has a lot of best friends — Selena Gomez! Emma Stone! Lily Aldridge! Karlie Kloss! — but her BFF du jour is New Zealand singer Lorde. I can’t help but wonder if TayTay raided Lorde’s closet with this latest all-black ensemble, which is decidedly more goth than we’ve ever seen the girlie girl. I’m totally feelin’ her black skater skirt, leather jacket and booties, especially with her newish modern bobbed haircut. Get the look for yourself, after the jump… Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo

Beauty Test Drive: Klorane Dry Shampoo

Between my super dry scalp and the cold winter weather, I’ve been trying really, really hard to wash my hair less often. This is not a fun goal to have when your hair is very blonde and does not hide oil well. The solution to extending the time between hair washing without having super gross hair? Dry shampoo, of course! But finding the right dry shampoo for me turned out to be more of a “Goldilocks & The Three Bears” situation than I expected. After trying dry shampoos that were too clumpy, too smelly, too powdery, too heavy, and too light, I finally found one that was juuuuuuust right: Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk.

The boutique where I work on weekends has some pretty crazy ear cuffs in our jewelry section, big ol’ things blinged out with rhinestones and crystal feathers. True statement pieces. A couple weeks ago, this little old lady came in. She was a classic southern lady, probably close to 90, decked out in Ferragamo heels, a fur bolero, and bright pink rouge. She picked up one of the ear cuffs and asked, “What is this?” I showed her how to put it on, and she looked in the mirror and gasped, “I look … badass.” “Yes you do!” I said, because she totally did, and she ended up buying it. So rad. I’m not sure I have what it takes to pull off a huge ear cuff like that lady, but I love the look of a dainty ear pin that extends up the ear a bit. This triple star design is so cool. Maybe not badass, but definitely cool. [$18.36, Arajera]
