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.

Um Hi, Armie Hammer Dropped Out Of A JLO Movie After Leaked Texts Claimed He’s Into Being A Cannibal And Is 2021 Over Yet?

Yes, welcome to 2021. A year whose heels only just hit the ground when Republican extremists terrorized the Capitol building leading to Donald Trump’s impeachment… And oh yeah saw actor Armie Hammer being accused of liking cannibalism. Yes, we said it cannibalism, ya know, an appetite for eating your own kind?

Gossip surrounding the Call Me By Your Name actor and his sex life has become so salacious that the actor announced that he was stepping back from an upcoming movie with Jennifer Lopez.

Armie Hammer announced this week that he will no longer star in the upcoming movie, Shotgun Wedding alongside Jennifer Lopez.

The brewing scandal involving Hammer includes alleged leaked messages related to his sex life.

The leaked messages alleged that Hammer has a thing for fantasies related to rape and cannibalism and was leaked by an anonymous social media account user with the name House of Effie. According to the account, Hammer told a woman that he was “100 percent a cannibal.” Another message suggested that Hammer liked the taste of blood.

“I’m not responding to these bulls–t claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,” Hammer said in a statement to Page Six. “Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”

Still, the show will go on for Lopez who will star in the film being directed by “Pitch Perfect” director Jason Moore.

The film will be distributed in the US by Lionsgate and will stream internationally on Amazon Prime. According to Deadline, Shotgun Wedding was meant to see Lopez and Hammer “play a couple who gather their lovable but very opinionated families for the ultimate destination wedding just as they begin to get cold feet about their relationship. If that wasn’t enough of a threat to the celebration, suddenly everyone’s lives are in danger when the entire party is taken, hostage.”

Despite the unconfirmed gossip around him, Hammer still has upcoming projects. These include the thriller, “The Billion Dollar Spy,” and a sequel to the 2017 hit “Call Me By Your Name” in which he played Oliver, a handsome doctoral student.

Its not the first time gossip around Hammer’s love life has caused a stir. In a 2013, Playboy interview Hammer described himself as a “dominant lover” and enjoyed “grabbing women by the neck and hair.”

He later told E! News of the candid Playboy interview, “Don’t drink during an interview.”

Selena Gomez Is Holding Tech And Social Media Accountable After Trump Mob Shuts Down Congress

Selena Gomez Is Holding Tech And Social Media Accountable After Trump Mob Shuts Down Congress

A pro-Trump mob stormed Capitol Hill Jan. 6 following months of President Donald Trump and his allies attacking the 2020 elections. Selena Gomez, like most Americans horrified by the attack, spoke out on social media about what happened. She made it clear that part of this falls on tech companies and social media companies.

Selena Gomez called out social media and tech companies for enabling hateful rhetoric.

President Donald Trump and his supporters have used social media to spread misinformation since he was elected in 2016. Americans have watched as President Trump used Twitter to spread falsehoods and conspiracy theories. There have been so many debunked claims that President Trump and his allies have spread with no consequence.

Recently, Twitter started to flag some of President Trump’s tweets as disputed or misleading. It was the first time a social media platform did something that checked President Trump and his rhetoric.

People quickly came to Gomez’s side to uplift her statement.

President Trump has a long history of hateful and dangerous rhetoric on social media. He has misled her supporters with false statements and has incited violence. The president has defended white supremacists on multiple occasions and even retweeted a video of a man shouting white power.

Social media platforms are finally muzzling President Trump with bans and suspensions.

Twitter has put the president on a temporary suspension after he incited the crowd that breached Capitol Hill. Meanwhile, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg enhanced the original 24-hour ban to a indefinite ban that will last at least until President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. However, people think it is a little too late for these actions.

“Disinformation and extremism researchers have for years pointed to broader network-based exploitation of these platforms,” Sen. Mark R. Warner, D-Va., said in a statement. “As I have continually said, these platforms have served as core organizing infrastructure for violent, far right groups and militia movements for several years now – helping them to recruit, organize, coordinate and in many cases (particularly with respect to YouTube) generate profits from their violent, extremist content.”

What happened Jan. 6 at the nation’s Capitol was avoidable, but it’s clear who incited this violence.

Congress has officially certified President-elect Biden’s win. What should have been a quick process to certify an election turned into a horrifying scene. It is a day that will always define President Trump’s legacy.
