I turned to wide brim hats, fedoras, and caps after experiencing hair-loss from wearing other people’s hair and processing my own from darkest brown to platinum blonde repeatedly…both DIY and…

Post-Extensions Blues

You’ve definitely heard someone speak of being shocked, sad or depressed after removing their extensions, but have you ever experienced the post-extensions blues?

The bad looks included the unflattering monokini- a maxi…

Rihanna X Manolo Blahnik “So Stoned”

Rihanna collaborates with Manolo Blahnik on “So Stoned” capsule of clear strap and heeled sandals ecrusted with large stones…it’s what a senior stripper might envision after.
