These Two Friends Shaved Their Heads To Look Like Avocados And Were Awarded With A Year’s Supply Of Avocados And More

“This is the craziest thing I’ve ever done.”

Just three days before the Super Bowl, “Avocados from Mexico” decided to challenge people’s love for avocados and football with a daring friendship test.

A couple of people from Philadelphia were selected for this test. They would have to shave their heads into the form of an avocado. To be specific, they would have to shave a circle at the top of their head and dye that shaved circle brown, to resemble the pit of the avocado. And the rest of their hair would have to be dyed green, to resemble the body of the avocado.

If these people were up for the challenge, they would be awarded with not only a year’s supply of avocados, but with two tickets to the Super Bowl game. However, there was a catch. They each had to convince a friend of theirs to shave their heads to resemble an avocado as well. They were not allowed to tell them that one of the rewards was a pair of tickets to the Super Bowl game. Hence, they’d assume that the only prize they would be given if they completed this challenge was a year’s supply of avocados.

So question was, what were their friends willing to do for a year’s supply of avocados? Even though some of their friends claimed they would do absolutely anything for a year’s supply of avocados, once they found out that they would have to shave their heads, they immediately hesitated and dropped out of the challenge. But then one pair of friends finally agreed to the challenge. It was Sofie Salgado and her BFF who were up for the challenge and made their way to the hair salon for their avocado makeover.

After the avocado makeover, Sofie’s friend was handed over a white envelope, which she probably thought had a certificate that said “You get a year’s supply of free avocados.” But once she opened the envelope and discovered the Super Bowl tickets, she broke down in tears of joy and gave her friend a big hug.

Sofie thanked her friend for taking this risk and shaving her head with her, saying, “Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for being an avocado with me.” And the best part is that this avocado makeover is only temporary. Their hair will grow back soon enough and they’ll be able to look back and laugh at the time they shaved their heads into avocados and went to the Super Bowl together. ??

They both seem pretty happy with their choice.

How Selena Gomez’s Decision To Let Her Natural Curls Loose During Quarantine Is The Ultimate Form Of Self-Care

Even while in quarantine, singer, actress, and soon-to-be makeup mogul Selena Gomez is managing to promote her new cosmetics brand, Rare Beauty. Before quarantine, Gomez would have followed the go-to-recipe for media promotion of her beauty products while in public: flaunting them on red carpets and rocking them on the street for paparazzi to capture and post on celebrity blogs.

Today, the producer/ businesswoman is promoting her new brand by proving the comfort it brings to her in her own home. Which makes for some pretty smart marketing if you ask me.

In a recent post to her Instagram page, Gomez shared a series of selfies wearing her natural curls and makeup from Rare Beauty.

“I had an urge to put my make up on,” Gomez wrote in the post’s caption. “My papa noticed then proceeded to ask “why do you look like that?” He whistled as he walked away. So there’s that. Wearing all @rarebeauty.”

In the picture, Gomez appears to be wearing a creamy nude lip product, winged liner, foundation, and concealer (which we know are meant to come in quite a few shades).

Gomez’s beauty launch might be impacted by the current pandemic but the singer is clearly unruffled.

The global pandemic has led many brands to put a pause on production to comply with necessary health measures.

Still, much to our delight, Rare Beauty seems to be trucking along with their plans for a summer on rarebeauty.com and Sephora. This gesture is something that we are particularly grateful for considering the fact that makeup has proven time and again to give us a sense of empowerment and confidence that we can all need in this time filled with so much doubt. From the looks of it, Gomez is using her own Rare Beauty products to help with her own self-care and we really can’t wait to do the same!

Just when you thought Selena Gomez and her brand couldn’t get any rarer, she launched a beauty line.

The new line, which is set to come out at Sephora stores this summer, is meant to strive for a whole lot of inclusivity and diversity. Which, of course, means tons of shades of concealer and foundation!

Forty-eight to be precise!

Gomez announced her new makeup line this past February before things, you know, got real.

In a post to her Instagram page, the “Rare” singer wrote “Guys, I’ve been working on this special project for two years and can officially say Rare Beauty is launching in @sephora stores in North America this summer! Follow @rarebeauty and become part of our beautiful community. Here’s a tiny sneak. There’s more to share AND I can’t wait.”

Turns out, Gomez’s new line is meant to start a conversation about feeling good in your own skin.

In a recent interview with comedian Amy Schumer, Gomez spoke out about the Rare makeup line and how she views beauty and makeup saying “I wanted to start a conversation about how can you make yourself feel great. It’s not necessarily about needing these things to make yourself feel beautiful. People of my generation have all this pressure to look a certain way, and I wanted to make a line that took away a bit of that pressure. I use real people in the campaigns. I have 48 shades of foundation and concealer. It’s all very clean and easy. I wanted people to feel safe.”

Gomez’s new makeup line draws on the messages of empowerment in her latest album.

Gomez captivated fans earlier this year when she dropped her record, Rare. Soon after its release, her album was touted as a loving ode to self-acceptance and love. There’s no doubt Gomez’s latest project will be something special.
