Halle Berry wears long hair

By Tenisha Mercer

Source: ET
Halle Berry is synonymous with short hair, especially her trademark pixie cut. So it's a bit different whenever we see her with long tresses, which she's been wearing about Hollywood lately. This time, it's long extensions (armpit length, maybe?).

This isn't the first time Halle has worn longer hair, though it's usually for movie roles. She wore shoulder length hair for a bit in 2012.

While I'm sure she likes to change things up, she is barely recognizable with the longer locks -- a good thing if you don't want paparazzi stalking you.

Judge tosses out $30 million wig lawsuit against Nicki Minaj by her former hair stylist and wig designer

By Tenisha Mercer

A federal judge has thrown out a $30 million lawsuit against platinum recording artist Nicki Minaj by her former hairstylist, who claimed the rapper stole his colorful, eccentric wig designs.

In a federal lawsuit filed earlier this year, Terrence Davidson of Georgia had claimed that Maraj, who's government name is Onika Maraj, also broke contracts and reneged on discussions to launch a reality show and wig line. 

But U.S. District Judge Harold Murphy ruled Davidson did not have valid claims against Minaj and her company, Pink Personality LLC.

In the lawsuit, David said he began working as Minaj's hair stylist in 2010, creating multiple wigs that Minaj wore to the MTV Awards, during media appearances and music videos. He claimed that he turned down a reality show to work with Minaj and the wig line. He stopped working as her stylist in early 2013 and claimed Mina stole his designs and started her own line.

Minaj's lawyers said Davidson is upset he lost a famous client and sought to take advantage of his former client's fame.

Minaj's flamboyant, brightly-colored wigs were a big part of her image up until recently, as the rapper has begun to tone down her look. Davidson claims he's also worked wig singer Patti Labelle and rapper Remy Ma.

Dress like Scandal's Olivia Pope

By Tenisha Mercer

From Birkie Bags, Prada to Burberry and other top-name designers, Olivia Pope from the hit TV show "Scandal" (played by actress Kerry Washington) kills the TV style game every Thursday night  -- she's hands down one of the best dressed women on prime-time TV.

Not only do I tune in for the suspense, I also want to peep what Olivia is wearing. If you've ever
wanted to dress like Olivia, now is your chance. The Scandal-inspired clothing collection hits The Limited Stores on Sept. 23, with 78-pieces.

The line is designed in part by none other than Washington, herself, and is priced from $49-$250.

"There needs to be a way that you can feel like a woman...and still feel like you're in full control," Washington said.

It's a whole new take on power dressing, and in a fashion world that has seen casual chic take precedence in many boardrooms and offices in recent years. Olivia single-handedly brought back the grown ass woman in a suit.

I think what I like best about the line is the pricepoint. I probably wouldn't shell out for the haute couture fashions Pope wears on the show, but this is feasible for the budget conscious. I'm loving the
wrapped coats, the suits and the contemporary dresses.

Can't you just see  Liv wearing this??? Scandal kicks off a new season Sept. 25.

What to do with your natural hair this fall: 3 ways to prepare

By Tenisha Mercer

Can't you just feel it? There's a crisp chill in the air; it's fall!

Fall can be a weird time, hairwise. Depending upon where you live, it's not quite winter, yet it's not quite summer, either. Definitely in-between. But now's not the time to slack up on your natural hair regimen, either.

Winter is right around the corner -- the time when you'll most likely need heavy, more durable hair products to beat off colder weather.

Here are some quick tips to get your natural hair ready for fall. 

Why you should NOT wear this dress

By Tenisha Mercer

After all of the gushing, ga-gaaiing and general falling out over the iPhone 6 debut last week, I thought I'd heard the end of it: Every tech site worth their tech covered the launch. Nothing more to report, right?

But leave it to Elie Tahari to capitalize on the publicity with the iPhone 6 fashion "debut." Tahari designed an iPhone dress, featuring, you guessed it, none other than 50 iPhone 6s.

I need to know who authorized this foolishness! Steve Jobs up in heaven?? Whose bright idea was this? Because other than a Halloween costume, or perhaps an Apple shindig like the iPhone 6 press launch, I can't think of anywhere you'd actually wear this.

There is a beard weave for that

By Tenisha Mercer

Y'all know I will clown. Men, women, doesn't matter, it's fair bait when it comes to hair.

But this right here? This is some downright foolery. And I blame it ALL on women who wear weaves (joking). 
Be-weaved on ANTM
Apparently, beard weaves are what dudes are sporting now, as spotted on an America's Next Top Model (ANTM) contestant yesterday.

Apparently, they want to get be-weaved as well, not wanting to leave women alone to wear weaves.

First man weaves, and now this! LAWD!!

J-Lo Kills it at Fashion Rocks 2014

By Tenisha Mercer

Jennifer Lopez SERVED IT at Fashion Rocks 2014, in Brooklyn. She wore a Versace gown with a banded gold collar that extended down to the waist and a thigh high split. Gone, J-LO!

Nicki Minaj performed and wore a cleavage-baring black midriff dress and strappy heels. Nice touch with an understated look with simple makeup and her hair swept to the back and a center part. Beautiful!
