Don't Visit a Bald Headed Stylist!

This afternoon I was watching a rather interesting Judge Alex episode.  A woman sued her former hairstylist for giving her a CUT instead of a TRIM.  The hairdresser was sleeping with the client's brother but when the affair ended, the plaintiff claimed that the hairdresser became nasty and spitefully cut her hair on purpose instead of trimming it like she asked.

I felt this woman's pain and I believed that she should have won the case. It was obvious to me that the hairstylist did that out of spite. She was wrong for that.  I can relate because I've had inches cut from my hair when I only needed a light dusting, and I've had another woman scratch my head right before applying a super relaxer.  These are just a few incidents that stand out in my mind.  It's to the point where I am very hesitant to trust people in my head.  A wise person once remarked about a short haired salon employee that did my hair: "[her name]'s hair all broke off and you lettin her in your head?"  I wish I'd listened to those words because that lady's faulty technique ended up causing me severe breakage later on.  I found out during my routine touchups, she'd been combing the relaxer from root to end to "keep it straight".

I have become scarred from my bad experiences so now I only want people with long hair to do my hair.  If you've got a short cut I might let you do a rollerset but you won't be wielding scissors and coming near my head.  If I can't trust you to keep the hair on your own head wtf you gonna do to my locks?  Now I'm not saying that all short haired stylists are like that.  There are so many professional women who wouldn't dream of being so unprofessional and cruel, and many of them aren't bald headed because they can't take care of their hair, but they have a short cut by choice.  I'm not talking about them.  I'm talking about broads like the one on Judge Alex.

Has this ever happened to you?  Unfortunately this is a problem that long haired black women end up having to deal with at some point in our lives.  Usually it's because someone is jealous, angry, or bitter because you have hair so they mess you up.  It's that pathetic crabs in a barrel mentality that some people are afflicted with.  If you got it - get help!!

Why We Love Toya Carter (Rolling Out Mag Interview Inside!)

I've become a Toya Carter fan.  To be honest, I didn't pay that much attention to her before (IKR) but her recent press promotions have shown a different side to her that we can all respect.  Read below to find out why.

People thought Tiny and I were gong to do a baby momma show. They only knew that I was married to Lil Wayne. But once we did season 2, they knew more about me. My life has changed, and I’m more in the public’s eye. I hear from people who are inspired by my story. I didn’t do the show to bash Lil Wayne or be labeled the mother of his first child. I will always be attached to him, but I’m doing things to better myself such as the TV show, my book and opening a clothing store.

It's a gift and a curse, but a blessing. People feel like they really, really know you. So you get the weirdos who come up to you, ‘Oh, you looking for love? I can help you with that,' and ‘Wayne's crazy' and this and that. The plus side is you get to meet people who genuinely give you this love and open up to you so it helps people. 

I just feel like women just go so hard. They give their all so fast. They give 100 and don’t get that in return. Relationships supposed to be equal. A lot of women didn’t grow up with the affection from their dad. So, when they find a man, they expect that man to give that to them.They look for love in all the wrong places. They never had their fathers around to say, I love you, and you’re beautiful. So, the first man to tell them, I love you, and you’re beautiful, they fall for it. That’s the biggest problem. They throw themselves on a man all the time and say, I got him. That [doesn't] work.

When you have kids at a young age, your kids tend to grow up with you. So, as I was learning, she was learning, which is why she is wise beyond her years. People see my daughter and say, She is so grown. We were learning together. I couldn’t just put her off on everybody. That didn’t stop me from being a mother. I told her when she was born, I’m going to give you all I didn’t have and more.Love your kids listen to them, hear them out. People say, If you didn’t have it, you can’t give it, but that’s not true. I didn’t have [anybody], but I’m trying to be there for my daughter. talk to me because I didn’t have [anyone] to talk to.

Men have to be more respectful. This generation is just so disrespectful. They think it’s corny to open a door for a woman and just be polite. What goes around comes around. What you put out, you will get back

We respect her positive insights on dealing with life's ups and downs, raising her daughter, and being classy.  We and 1.5 million viewers as well wanna see more of our girl Antonia Carter so we'll definitely be tuning in to watch more episodes of Toya's Family Affair on BET.

Maxi Skirt Trend

This season, inject a dose of ladylike glamour by rocking maxi skirts. The dramatically dropped hemlines are perfect for enjoying calm spring breezes.  Maxis let you look radiant and feminine. You can easily dress them up or down, yet still maintain the effect of making an effort.

Short girls- You ladies look best when you stick to monochromatic skirts, detailing closer to the neckline/face, and avoid patterns & colorblocking.  A 1 color dress can actually visually elongate your body making you look longer and leaner, and pairing them with wedges is a nice addition for your frame.

Big girls- A cute idea is to stick to heavier materials and A-lines.  Look for good structure, yet fabric that wields and floats gently away from your body.

Will you be rocking maxi skirts? Yay or nay?

Fantasy Shoes

If you've got 3 stacks to blow on heels, let these be the ones you choose.  Patricia Field showcases these 6 inch multi-colored Swarovski stoned beauties.  

1 look at the Chiquita shoes made me orgasm on sight!  I would love to stomp the concrete runway rocking these.  I like them with a simple t-shirt and skinny jean so as not to compete with the drama.

What bad bitch can you picture rocking these? Nicki Minaj? Lady Gaga? You??

Are The Kardashians a Decent Choice for Kids??

I just watched Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards with my little sister and just became annoyed with society.  I couldn't believe my eyes.  What were the Kardashian sisters doing at the awards?  No, not Kendall and Kylie, which would have been an age appropriate choice at least; but Kourtney and Kim.  Yes THOSE Kardashians.  I didn't think they were kid stars.

As we all know, the Kardashian family fame is only a byproduct of a cleverly leaked sex tape starring Kim and Ray J. A kid's network just gave a glorified porn star unwarranted airtime.  Could Nickelodeon even pretend to be responsible?  What kind of message does that send to kids, particularly young girls?  That you don't need any talents beyond your sexual abilities and looks?  That you too can get fame and recognition from a sex tape?  I'm just trying to get it..

As a big sister, I didn't approve of that message at all. 

No tea, no shade, just reality. Did you see the 2011 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards?  Do you mind your kids watching Kim Kardashian?  Drop me a line and tell me what's good.
