They say so many things about blondes. They're rumored to be less intelligent, but still they say that they have more fun.
Tameka "Tiny" Cottle has worn her hair in various shades of blond for a while, but now -- because her husband asked her to -- she's added some streaks of pink to the mix!
Here she is with amazing stylist Johnny Wright at the SoftSheen-Carson Optimum Care Salon event, which was held during Steve Harvey's Hoodie Awards in Las Vegas last weekend.
Well hello, Lloyd!
The R&B crooner known as "Mr. Long Hair Don't Care" made a dramatic change to his look today, and revealed it all on Twitter.
"The R&B star, who began growing his hair over 10 years ago, felt like it was time for a change, and time to give back, "I've been growing my hair since 9th grade. It's time for a new me." said Lloyd. He went on to say, "The fact that my hair will go to someone that needs it more than me, makes me feel great about my decision."
Grown and harvested in the southwest region of Morocco, the argan tree has provided a beauty secret to women of the region for centuries. Moroccan women use the oil harvested from its kernels by applying it to their dry hair for styling and overnight moisture treatments.
This ancient Moroccan secret has found quite a receptive market here in the United States. Argan oil is now the hot new ingredient for women seeking softer, silkier tresses. Here are some of the hottest new argan-oil-infused products!
As an adult, you're within your rights to get just about any kind of hairstyle you want. Braid it up, loc it up, relax it, get a weave. Whatever makes you happy, go for it. But what about when you're a kid?
I've asked the question before, and I must ask it again: How young is too young for a certain kind of hairstyle? I ask, because this clip from popular TLC reality show 'Toddlers and Tiaras' -- via Clutch Magazine -- left me feeling all kinds of disturbed.
It's summer and your hair is doing its best to handle the weather. But with that heat and humidity, your hair might as well ask you -- what have you done for me lately?

They measure 19 feet, 6 inches long. When dry, they weigh four pounds. When wet, at least 10 pounds. Asha Mandela has the longest dreadlocks in the world, making her an official Guinness World Record holder.
For Asha, it's more than just a hairstyle. It is a way of life and an expression of self.
"When I started growing my locks, I suddenly became very overprotective of them, as I felt they beheld all my energy, wisdom, knowledge and understanding and my over all strength. So I twisted, groomed and maintained them for myself... to the present," she explained in a recent e-mail interview.
Caring for hair of that length requires a lot of time, and a LOT of products. Check out how many bottles of shampoo she uses to wash her hair!
Naomi Campbell does not come across as cuddly or approachable. She's beautiful and fierce. I'm thinking the people around her hesitate to mention the obvious, so I'll take a shot.
Naomi, it's time to leave the weaves be and let your hairline live. When I caught sight of these photos on the gossip blog Miss Jia of Campbell at a New York City photo shoot on Monday, my heart went out to her poor scalp. It doesn't deserve this kind of abuse!
When did you first discover your chosen profession? Most of us wait till college, while some of us never manage to find that special thing we're meant to do. And then there are the lucky few, like celebrity barber Maurice Manley, who found his calling at a young age.
"I started cutting hair when I was 12 years old. When I started, it was on my own hair. I used to sit and wait for my dad to cut my hair and this one day I kept asking and he kept putting me off, so I did it myself. And I messed my hair up -- badly! But I kept going because I was determined to learn how to so I wouldn't have to ask him anymore," he explains.
The temperatures are sizzling, and so are the popular hair colors! Red hair is back with a vengeance, and you're more likely to see women of color with russet, scarlet, or wine-colored streaks in their hair this season. But what about women with natural hair, or for those of us who may be concerned about the damage hair dye can bring?
For us, there's henna - the flowering plant that's been used to dye everything from skin to cloth since the Bronze Age. Henna has been embraced by the natural hair community for being natural, potent, and a generally beneficial treatment for hair that needs strength, shine and color. But if you're a newbie to henna, where do you begin? There are some great online resources for anyone with questions. Here are BV's top favorites.
