All Aboard The ‘Baby Hair’ Bandwagon, Alicia Keys Ignited A Fever For Embellished Baby Hairs And Edges And We’re On Board

We’re all obsessed with the way Alicia Keys styled her baby hairs for the Grammys last weekend. So as an appreciation story, we thought we’d to give you a few ideas to style your own baby hairs for date night, work, or just any random day —you’re welcome. 

When Beyoncé declared that she likes her “baby heir with baby hairs and Afros” in the song “Formation,” everyone got ready to style the little fine hairs around the edges of their hairline. Traditionally black and Latina subcultures have been proudly rocking their baby hairs since birth, and now it seems like mainstream culture is finally jumping on the “baby hairs are awesome” bandwagon. 

When Alicia Keys walked on stage at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards, she didn’t just wow the audience with her inspiring words and heart-warming ballads.

The singer also has us obsessing over her show-stopping hair. She was wearing cornrows and artfully laid edges —but the interesting part were the Swarovski crystals, each accentuating a swirl of hair. 

It was a beautiful way of putting baby hairs at the forefront of her beauty look. 

Keys’ hair moment was somewhat of a celebration for communities that have sported the look for decades. For black and Latinx communities who have styled their baby hairs for generations, it was a proud moment —and somewhat of an inspiration tbh. 

So instead of straightening them, damaging them with chemicals or “taming” your baby hairs, why don’t you check out the following list for some styling inspiration. Own those baby hairs this 2020. 

Alicia Keys

Of course we were going to start the list with this bedazzled look. Celebrity hairstylist Nai’vasha swept Alicia’s baby hairs into little swoops before adding individual crystals inside each loop. “Alicia and I are obsessed with glorious baby hairs,” the hair pro told Vogue.

Singer and songwriter Gabriella Wilson, better known as H.E.R., also wore her baby hairs in an artful design at the Grammys last Sunday. Sculpted in a wavy pattern all along her hairline and down to her ears, her baby hairs were at the center of her beauty lewk —and they did NOT disappoint. 

Jennifer Lopez

So we’re all used to seeing JLo in super sleek updos and buns, yes. But for her Saturday Night Live promos, Jenny from The Block’s hairstylist Chris Appleton styled the singer’s baby hairs in long swoops that cascaded along her hairline. The design was a beautiful detail to add to an otherwise bland and sleek ponytail.

The English singer never misses a chance to stye her baby hairs in cute and artful ways. Her hairstylist Kahh Spence, a self-professed ‘slay gawd’ always slays Ella’s hair, and the hair of many other celeb clients, so I guess he really is a hair gawd of sorts.

The R&B singer is a true hair icon, she always styles her mane in crazy colors or intricate styles. We love this relaxed take on the classic top knot. She let her baby hairs flow freely and maybe even curled them a bit —goals. 

Yara Shahidi

The Black-ish star never ceases to amaze us with her flawless skin, hair and style. And in this example, she’s proving that you can always make a statement by styling just one or two swirls of baby hairs around your hairline to make an otherwise simple do, stand out. 

FKA Twigs

The queen of baby hair art. Ok granted, some of Twigs’ signature baby hair looks might require an art degree but hey, nothing a sharp edge control brush and some good gel can’t help you do —with a lot of practice.

Here’s another embellished look that has us floored. A spring time look if ever we’ve seen one. Do like the actress and accentuate each swirl of hairs with a teeny tiny flower. The levels of cute and chic are just beyond.

Serving Ariana Grande vibes, but with way more estilo. Baby hair styling proves, yet again, that with just a few waves, you can make a ‘normal’ hairstyle stand out.

Rihanna

Baby hairs look beautiful braided into a protective style; just be sure to re-braid those pieces as the hair grows to prevent breakage.

La Rosalia 

The urban-flamenco singer also knows that styling baby hairs can add that little extra-ness to her signature high ponytail. Celebrity stylist Jesus Guerrero added a few swoops on the singers temples to create a style that’s a little more glamorous and a little less basic.

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.”

The fact that the early days of Barbie were not quite so inclusive to all of us comes as no surprise. The blonde, impossibly figured doll with a penchant for similar-looking friends is a far cry away from the Barbie of today who has friends of all shapes, races, sizes, sexual identities, and abilities. Even better, today’s Barbie crew includes dolls who give queer children a broader playgound for their imagination.

Recently, Barbie has added a new addition to her friend group whose bringing more power to her LGTBQ fans.

Social media has dubbed the LGBTQ positive Aimee Song doll Barbie‘s girlfriend.

Twitter’s latest excitement is about a theory that Barbie and Aimee Song are dating. Photos of Mattel’s doll Aimee Song doll show her wearing a “Love Wins” T-shirt that supports LGBTQ+ rights. The Mattel doll was inspired by fashion blogger Aimee Song and recently caught renewed attention in a viral post shared to Twitter.

The “Love Wins” photos are only now going viral but were actually released in November 2017.

The photos of Barbie and the Aimee doll were shared to Twitter last Monday by user @kissevermore and now has Twitter debating whether the two are dating.

The pictures of Barbie and Aimee show the two dolls eating avocado toast. petting a dog, and smiling at each other. The images have fans questioning when Barbie came out and how she managed to nail a hot girlfriend before they did.

Even REAL Aimee Song weighed in on the images to confirm the relationship.

“I am the girlfriend,” she tweeted with a photo of herself and the Aimee Song doll. 

While Mattel has yet to officially identify Barbie as a lesbian, the original Instagram posts related to the Love Wins Barbies are proof that she is at least an ally.

Confirmed or not, true or not, one of the best parts of Barbie is that she is meant to be whoever her fans want her to be.
