Move over Beyonce, Pantene has a new famous face behind its brand!
Queen Latifah has been named the new face of Pantene’s Truly Relaxed and Truly Natural Collection.
Apparently, this is an opportunity that the actress-singer has been waiting for. She says, “I’ve wanted to work with them for a long time. When they first approached me, I thought, ‘Finally!’”
She goes on to reveal to PEOPLE just why she wanted to work with Pantene. “Having black hair is unique,” she explains, “in that black women change up styles a lot. You can walk down one street block in New York City and see 10 different hairstyles that black women are wearing: straight curls, short cuts, braids — we really run the gamut. That means we have to have the products that really work for all of our various looks, and Pantene is so versatile.”
Latifah, whose talk show begins on Sept. 9, is excited to rock her hair more natural. “I’m really looking forward to wearing it natural more often. It’s just fun,” she told us.
Oprah is sporting larger-than-life hair on the cover of her September issue of O magazine.
This issue in particular focuses on hair so why not let it be the main focus on the cover?
Alongside the cover Oprah posted the following message on her Facebook page: “Just revealed this new cover of O, The Oprah Magazine – one of my faves ever – Let’s talk about HAIR! Love this cover so much, I’m making it my new profile pic!”
Are you a fan of the cover? Weigh-in below!
The actress posted a photo of herself with half of her head shaved off. Going by the photo caption, it seems as though the What I Like About You star got inspiration from R&B singer Cassie, who has been wearing her hair in the same style for a number of years now.
Even though it’s hard to tell how the style looks, due to Bynes’ hair being blonde, the actress looks like she’s in good spirits. There have been various reports that suggest Bynes is suffering from a mental illness. She has since denied those reports.
One could assume that Bynes shaved her head, so blogs and magazine would stop using the bizarre photos that have surfaced on the web as of late.

Rihanna is featured on yet another magazine cover. This time around, the “S&M” singer graces the cover of Fabulous magazine – a UK-based magazine which will feature RihRih next month. During the interview, Rihanna touched on relationships, her red hair being a sex symbol and much more. One topic Rihanna was not open to dicussing was Chris Brown. Check out some interview snippets below.
being hailed a ex symbol:
Every time I hear that it’s definitely flattering, but also uncomfortable. That’s not a priority on my list – being a sex symbol or being overly sexy. I’m just a normal woman. I don’t really focus on being a sex symbol.
other artists in the industry she’s competing with:
I never focus on who or what is at the top, because when people become better at what they do individually, it’s noticed. And that’s all I want to be: an artist who was known for growing constantly and becoming bigger and better.
It’s not about who’s better between Rihanna, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. I’m more in competition with myself. I always challenge myself to do better next time. It doesn’t matter who’s at the top as long as I’m getting closer to that point every time. That’s all I care about.
why she chose to dye her hair red:
I think I was ready for something new and loud and expressive. It’s really adventurous – I wanted something that was fun, you know. I didn’t want a normal hair colour. I’d had blonde and it was so boring. Black is still my favourite, but I was looking for a colour that was edgy. I guess it was just the place I was in at that time. I felt like being spontaneous, and I also wanted to go for something extreme. I couldn’t do green or purple or pink, so red was like the fine line between normal and extreme!
moving on and forward with her life:
I wanted people to move on from it, [because] the last big thing they know about me is that night. And I don’t want that to be what people define me as.
When asked about Brown, Rihanna initially said: “Excuse me?”
The interviewer didn’t get the hint and asked Rihanna about him again and this time Rihanna said a little bit more: “Next. You obviously want to talk about Chris Brown, I don’t.”
Let’s just say the interviewer got the point after that.
