Happy Birthday Rihanna! Today the woman we know as Bad Gal Ri Ri turns the big 2-6 and one thing that’s for sure is the woman has about as many controversial hair choices as she does raunchy dance moves on stage and suspect magazine interviews. Since it’s Ri Ri’s bday we thought we’d focus on the good, though, so we’re counting down Rihanna’s best hair moments starting with her introduction to the world back in the mid-2000s. Let us know which look is your favorite.
These are the men with press n’ curls who had no business having them to begin with and who, thankfully, have retired their free flowing tresses in favor of ceaser’s and other non-pimp-like haircuts more befitting of men of a certain age.
KCi tried to pull off this look at a time when PR people actually had some control over their artists so I don’t know who gave the green light to this Mary Tyler Moore flip mess, but thankfully it was short-lived.
Burr, it’s cold (or should we say polar- vortexing) so why not….PUT A WIG ON IT?!
Wigs can be a women’s best friend. They are the ultimate way to experiment with hair color, style, or cut without having to manipulate your own hair. In the winter, they also serve as a great protective style against winter weather’s damaging effects. Personally, I’ve been experimenting with wigs as a way to let my hair take a break from the constant manipulating I do to it weekly. Here’s 13 different types of wigs from one of my favorite affordable wig companies It’s a Wig! Check out these really great units you can experiment with this winter to keep your tresses healthy and shielded from the elements.

So before we peeped Nicki Minaj showing off her tresses on Instagram yesterday, apparently Gabrielle Union had done the same thing right before her. The “Being Mary Jane” star took to IG two days ago to give hope to weave wearers everywhere when she posted the pic above with this caption:
Ladies… You can achieve hair growth… With a weave! This is allllll mine, no clips, no extensions, hadn’t even been pressed…And it got this healthy thick length from responsibly wearing weaves. #weaveandflowletitgrow
This isn’t the first time Gabby decided to show all of us what she’s working with under all that long, silky yaky, but it appears the actress just wanted to give us a bit of an update on her hair progress. Too bad we never get to see her rock her real hair on red carpets, huh? At least we figure this pic will go over better than the one when she posted when she dyed her hair blonde for a movie role and people tried to revoke her black card SMH.
What do you think about Gabby’s IG post? Impressed she’s maintained this length underneath the weaves?
Nicki Minaj is really trying to make people jealous out in these streets. The rapper took to Instgram last night to show off her natural hair, pulling a Beyonce “Single Ladies” ponytail move, and most people couldn’t believe the length of the 31-year-old’s hair as she boasted “no perm, no extensions.”
This actually isn’t the first time a Nicki Minaj natural hair craze occurred. Last year, the Black Barbie teased us with a pic showing the length and thickness of her tresses, but her face was out of the frame. This time around, Nicki appears to be owning her style and even rocking it in a photo shoot of sorts.
After these makeup chair-type pics, Nicki showed off her hair again in a top knot and skimpy see-through body suit, and we have to say we think we could get used to this look — minus the pasties over her boobs and stuff. We wonder if Nicki is going to stick with this toned-down natural look or we’ll see her in a platinum blonde wig and over-the-top makeup again before the weekend is over. What do you think?
Check out Nicki’s other pics on the next page. Are you feeling her natural updo?
Big choppers of the world have a new national member to add to their crew. Yesterday Tamera Mowry-Housley showed off her new ‘do on Instagram and it’s definitely a big switch. Posting the photo, Tamera wrote:
Love my big chop…love my curl doctor @shaiamiel You did it again
@shaiamiel is Shai Amiel, owner of Capella Salon in Studio City, CA, who literally goes by the name “Curl Doctor” and who showed off Tamera’s big chop on her own Instagram account.
Before the big reveal, Tamera hinted this move was coming when she sent out this tweet while at the salon, but no one knew such a drastic change was in the works.

We’ve gotten so used to seeing Tamera with long flowing locks so this look will definitely take a little time to get used to. We can’t wait to see how she styles it on “The Real.” What do you think about Tamera’s big chop?
Leave it to Erykah Badu to keep it funky fresh. Whether it’s her threads, her music or her hair you can always expect something new. Yesterday, the soul singer took to Facebook and Twitter to debut her latest do. It’s an oldie but goodie.
The FatBellyBella had her locks trimmed into a very impressive high top fade.
She posted the picture on her Twitter with caption: “Faded…High”
And then she showed the back …
…and captioned it “Pyramids and vortices.”
We’d be remiss if we didn’t note the flyness of the four full-fingered rings.
By now you know Erykah is one of those women who can pull off pretty much anything when it comes to hair styles. And this is no exception. Love this look on her.
What do you think? Are you digging it?
Our favorite celebs made a lot of bold hair moves in 2013. Let’s take a look at some of the best…and the worst hair moments of 2013.
2013 was the year of the pixie cut and Bey surprised us all when she cut all her hair off in August. But before we could get used to her new look, she went back to her signature length.
Cold weather can do damage to you hair whether you’re living life relaxed or rocking your natural texture. Here are some ways to protect, save, and help your hair flourish throughout the winter season.
Is there anyone out there who doesn’t admire Ledisi’s locs? The singer has been rocking them for “forever” and as long as we can remember, we’ve always admired her locs in every shade from smoky red to her new blonde and brown two-tone look. That’s why when Ledisi came to our office a couple of weeks ago, aside from questions about her upcoming album “Truth,” we had to ask her: girl, just how do you get your locs like that?
Thankfully, Ledisi wasn’t shy about her hair care routine, even letting us in on a special aloe concoction she uses. But the biggest secret to Ledis’s gorgeous mane, she said, is leaving her hair alone.
“I leave my hair alone when it’s time to leave it alone. I think we play with our hair too much and do too much stuff. Sometimes it’s good to just let it be free and grow.”
