There’s A New Hairstyle In Town And This One Was Taken From The Unlikeliest Character: Introducing The Lord Farquaad Flip

In recent weeks, you might have been noticing a new hairstyle trend making its way through social media. From Selena Gomez to Khloe Kardashian, every Insta-girl has been sporting a Lord  Farquaad-esque bob with a flip. Honestly, the new trend is euqal parts curious and nostalgic. Who hasn’t thought about Lord Farquaad’s hair over the years? His hairstyle was the first hairstyle many of us were able to differentiate. 

Remember Lord Farquaad from Shrek?

We all know Lord Farquaad, the ruler of Duloc and Shrek’s enemy. The evil monarch plots to become King by marrying Princess Fiona, and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants —even torturing the cute Gingerbread man. Farquaad is short, and he overcompensates for his lack of inches with a big attitude and sassy hairstyle, the one that we will refer to as: The Farquaad Flip.

So why is this hairstyle trending?

 Jesus Guerrero, the stylist behind the Kardashian-Jenner flips says it’s “an easy chic look” that will help you channel your inner Lord. “I love how simple it is, yet it exudes so much power,” adds Guerrero. Achieving the Farquaad flip is pretty simple. “To create this hairstyle, brushing with a small round brush is key,” Guerrero explains. “It helps create that full flipped in look.”

The long bob with the ends notably flipped inwards, aka the Farquad Flip, has made its way into Instagram’s creme de la creme, making Lord Farquaad undeniably, an influencer. And we have proof.

Here is one of the first sighting of the iconic ‘flip.’

Selena Gomez made her triumphant return to the AMAs in a (Shrek?) green Versace dress and a hairstyle that can only be described as Farquaad-ian. People were too excited about her return to the stage that they overlooked the hairstyle.

The Farquaad Flip was spotted at the TIFF red carpet thanks to the “Hustlers” cast.

Jennifer Lopez wore the cut on the TIFF red carpet like nobody else could. It looked so good on her that you kind of forget about the hairstyle being a part of the “Shrek” empire.

Khloe and Kylie were twinning in the style.

Just last week, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian drove the point home with not one, but two matching Farquaad flips at their epic annual Christmas party.

Here is Chrissy Teigen looking all cute.

Even everyone’s fave, Chrissy Teigen, has been spotted sporting the look. Coiffed by Jesus Guerrero, celebrity hairstylist to the Kardashian clan.

This instance of the queen of Instagram is a good case in point. This is a Farquaad Flip if ever we’ve seen one. 

Jessica Alba giving the flip a more princessy vibe.

A little longer and with more volume, but the ends are flipped inwards and that’s all that matters.

Even Becky G in doing the flip and making it super impressive.

The ‘Mala Santa’ singer has been spotted in the style of the moment too, albeit a shorter version. There’s no escaping it! 

Celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway also loves the style.

And if a celebrity hairstylist loves it, that’s it, it’s officially a moment. The flip has been cemented.

Lastly, Bella Hadid giving us a half-up Farquaad flip moment.

Ben Affleck & Marc Anthony Spoke Frankly About J.LO And My Nostalgic Aughts-Self Is Giving A Toast

No doubt, as the Latina Queen of Hollywood, Jennifer Lopez has played the better half of quite a few relationships and not just on-screen. From Diddy, formerly known as Puff Daddy and P Diddy, to Casper Smart Lopez has been The Strong Woman behind some pretty well-known men.

Her exes Marc Anthony (whom J.L o shares twins Emme and Max, 13 with) and Ben Affleck know it, and in a recent interview, they opened up about what they really think of her.

For her recent May cover of InStyle magazine, Lopez’s feature story included insights from her former loves Anthony and Affleck on everything from her drive to her ageless beauty.

In honor of the singer and actor’s 30-year run in the entertainment industry, the magazine featured her and her most prolific exes. For the interview, both Anthony and Affleck commented on Lopez’s character, heart, and business savvy. “The thing about Jennifer is her ability to see and understand things before they happen,” Anthony, explained in his interview.

Anthony, a singer and actor who starred in the 2001 film In the Time of the Butterflies was married to Lopez from 2004 to 2014.

“Before she even brings an idea up, she has visualized it a thousand times. And if anyone says it might not be the greatest idea, she’ll say, ‘You just don’t see it yet.’ Nine times out of 10, she’ll nail it. She’s the first one in the room and the last to leave. The hardest worker I’ve ever met,” Anthony went onto share. “When we were together, it was quite the opposite for me. That has changed since. I learned so much from her. She’s the original!”

Affleck who dated J.LO in 2002 and starred alongside her in the films “Gigli” and “Jersey Girl” also spoke openly about Lopez.

“I thought I had a good work ethic, but I was completely humbled and blown away by what she was committed to doing day in and day out, the seriousness in which she took her work, the quiet and dedicated way she went about accomplishing her goals, and then how she would go back and redouble her efforts,” Affleck, whose romance with Lopez earned him the other part of the nickname “Bennifer” by the media, explained.

“She remains, to this day, the hardest-working person I’ve come across in this business,” he revealed, “She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”

At one point Affleck commented, relatably, that he felt J.Lo appeared as if she hadn’t aged since they dated.

“Where are you keeping the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it kind of looks like I’m in my 40s…at best?” he joked.

Selena Gomez Tells Senate to Pass Equality Act, Credits Gay Community with Launching Her Music Career

Selena Gomez Tells Senate to Pass Equality Act, Credits Gay Community with Launching Her Music Career

After the Equality Act was recently passed in the House, Selena Gomez is now telling the Senate to pass the bill that would give added federal protections to the LGBTQ+ community. The Mexican-American pop star also talked about her history with the gay community and how they helped support her music career.

The Equality Act would extend protections from the Civil Rights Act to the LGBTQ+ community.

The Equality Act was first introduced in 2015. The bill would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to extend protections against discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity when it came to employment, housing, education, and other public and federal accommodations. In 2019, the Senate under President Donald Trump refused to vote on the bill.

The Equality Act recently passed through the House and now Gomez wants the Senate to pass it as well.

In February, the Equality Act was reintroduced to the House of Representatives. The bill passed through the House for a second time on Feb. 25. In a recent interview with the Recording Academy, the institution that hosts the Grammy Awards, Gomez is telling the Senate to vote on the bill this time and pass it through.

“We’ve come a long way in the last 10 years, but we have so much further to go,” Gomez said about the progress of LGBTQ+ rights in the country. “The Senate must pass the Equality Act. It’s absurd that this is even being debated in 2021.”

Gomez says the gay community helped support her 2009 breakthrough hit “Naturally.”

While Gomez was promoting her Latin music EP Revelación, she also revisited a few of her past hits. In 2009, she launched her music career with her band The Scene. Later that year, Gomez got her first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her breakthrough smash “Naturally.” While talking about her relationship with the gay community, she says they were the first ones to show that song love.

“Earlier you mentioned my song ‘Naturally’ and I remember when it was released, it truly started getting played in the gay bars before anywhere else,” she said. “I would hear from older friends that they heard when they went out. I was so jealous that I was too young to be out and dancing to it with everyone. The LGBTQ+ community has been there for me and I don’t take them for granted.”

The Equality Act is waiting to be debated by the Senate. This is Gomez’s first time speaking in support of the bill. Last year, she launched the Black Equality Fund to support groups like the Movement for Black Lives.  In March, she also asked for the Senate to pass the People Act.
