HAIR INSPIRATION

And The Oscar Goes To… 50 Cent!

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

50 Cent is going to star in what seems to be an impressive dramatic role titled “Things Fall Apart.”

I have to be honest, when I first noticed the title, I thought the movie was about the fantastic book I read in college titled, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, but it’s not.

The photo below caught my attention. Look at how much weight he loss for the role! I thought it was a joke. Then I said, “No that’s him. Is he sick?!” Afterwards I realized the picture was associated with an upcoming film. 50 Cent has so many talents. Not only is he a super rap star, he is also a best selling author, business man and now an actor – not a movie star – but an actor. there’s a difference.

Check out the trailer.

Press News:

Leaving the actor 54 pounds lighter than his usual self, the film depicts a promising young athlete, Deon Barnes, whose life is perfect, glorious and victorious until the worst happens. Barnes is a University of Michigan football player with a dream of one day becoming a Miami Dolphin.

The well loved athlete is a candidate for the Heisman trophy, but his hopes come crashing down when he collapses in the locker room after a big win. He is diagnosed with cancer and begins the journey to healing as he endures chemotherapy.

In the midst of it all, Barnes has hope.

“My motivation for the project was my best friend, Charles Pringle. He lived across the street from me; he actually died of cancer,” 50 Cent once said on what the film means to him.

No release date has been set.

I’m Done! This Is Too Much Work!

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Brilliant. Extremely funny. What a video!

This brand new natural head is frustrated with her hair. She is done with the natural hair scene because it is too much work. I know how she feels. In the beginning maintaining natural hair is  a lot of work, especially if your hair isn’t trained. I am experiencing this frustrating feeling right now. But I am sticking with it. I’ll find a technique that works for my hair and everything will be alright. Right?

Check out the video and her accent. Classic!

Black Owned Beauty Supply Stores. Are There Any?

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

In New York City every black beauty supply store I have been to is owned by Koreans. There are African Americans who work in the shops but they do not own them.

When I saw the video below I discovered that almost the same thing is happening in London! People of East Indian ancestry own and operate black beauty supply stores – not black people.

In Chris Rock’s movie “Good Hair” he mentioned that Koreans, who distribute black haircare products, do not sell materials to black owned beauty supply stores. By doing this, black store owners are sometimes forced to close their businesses.

In the 1970s and early 1980s this was not the case. I remember buying haircare products from black owned beauty supply stores all of the time. How did African Americans loose ownership of beauty supply stores that cater to the black market?!

Check out the video below.

Also check out the documentary by a white filmmaker named Aron Raven who reveals how Koreans have come to control every aspect of the multi-billion dollar black haircare industry. I believe this film was released in 2006. In the film there is talk about taking back ownership. Five years later African Americans still have not taken control over the black haircare industry. It feels as if we lost an important piece of ourselves.

Let me know your thoughts on this subject.
