Yep. The internal misery of the British Candace Owens is practically oozing from her needlessly bitter attack against Chika. All that hate can’t just be inspired by a random person on a billboard unless that random person reminds you of something you can’t stand in yourself.

She is fucking gorgeous. Why is it so hard for people to believe that some of us are not exclusively attracted to tall skinny people?! People are out here falling in love with ugly ass Adam Driver and I don’t badmouth them for that. Let us enjoy different kinds of people! Lawd!

I will never understand folks who get on the internet just to be absolutely ugly to someone. How about we stop looking at people and making judgments about what’s going on with their bodies? But also that “your bad karma is paying my bills” line took. Me. Out.

Been seeing that 1999 v 2019 Calvin Klein billboard meme floating around on social media, and most of the people posting it don’t even realize they’re supporting the bad-faith trolling conservatives love - “whatever happened to the good old days of skinny blonde women?!” Read more

Maybe it’s just me but I wouldn’t go to Aveda and expect them to know what to do with my hair except to cut it very close; yes it’s another example of need to have a diverse workforce.

I have wispy white curls, so different situation, but no matter how many times I tell a hair stylist that I never blow out my hair at home and to please not give me lots of choppy layers that are going to look ridiculous when I air dry my curls with no product, they don’t understand.

Just wondering what it feels like to stop minding your own business to visit web sites, not aimed at your demographic, for the sole purpose of negating people’s lived experience while you throw in some completely stupid, ill mannered things you think are insults. Read more

I still have a problem with the fact that cosmetology schools don’t teach their students how to work with thicker, more textured hair, though. Read more

Don’t bother unless you get a recommendation from someone with curly hair that you think looks good. I am white but I have Jewish 3A-3B curls and I have gone to every Deva certified curl specialist in my city, which was fewer than 15 stylists and I live in one of the top 5 biggest cities in the US.

I mean, I know no one knows that to do with curly hair, because I have gone to so many places and people and...they always try to blow it out. NO, I want to know what it’s actually going to look like. However, I didn’t know about the upcharge and don’t know if I’ve been charged extra. I considered having to go to a Read more
