Love What You've Got on Top!!

The tide is beginning to change and a lot of Fabulous Brown Girls are beginning to change the way they see themselves and the way they see their hair.

A Sesame Street producer has a young adopted African American daughter and when he saw how she was beginning to have a negative view of her hair he
took to his profession and did something about it.

Here is a clip of his story and why he did it.

Locally in Houston, Fabulous Brown Girl, Ashley Small, President of Medley Inc. went on ABC 13 to talk about her views on her hair and how she loves what she has on top!!

It is great to see that as African American women, we have the option of wearing our hair any way we want. We should not let our racial counterparts dictate what looks good on us, especially when it is not how our hair is naturally. Even though transitioning out of relaxed hair can be mentally challenging, the results are immensely rewarding to those who are willing to do so.

If you have gone natural or love wearing your hair however you want and do not care what others think because you know you were created wonderfully then share your comment below!

Oh and Just in case you have yet to see this example of viral self love check it out and make sure you share with everyone young and old!!

NEW Show to Watch: House of Glam

House of Glam, the new show which premiered October 5th on the Oxygen network immediately caught my eye. The show follows the very hip and fashion forward, B. Lynn Group, which is a New York based image agency headed up by Brandi Simpkins that styles the top urban celebrities for everything from music videos, fashion shows, and photo shoots for ad campaigns.

The stylists are all young and seem to be a very tight knit group of uber talented individuals that know the craft of image consultancy. They work with the biggest names in hip hop and love their job and the agency.

If you are into fashion and enjoy styling and branding through image then this show is for you! It is very a Young, Black and Fabulous sort of show and reminds me of a young black answer to the Rachel Zoe Project which is on the Bravo network.

Follow the B. Lynn Group on Twitter @TheBLynnGroup

So will you be tuning in?

House of Glam airs on Tuesdays 9c/10 est! Catch a sneak peak to this very FABULOUS show !!

For Colored Girl's Trailer and What Ntozake Shange Thinks

Tyler Perry, notorious for keeping our black actors working but also infamous for providing sub-par story lines and perpetuating negative and unsual stereotypes, has decided to take his appeal and approach to what has been deemed a literary classic for many Fabulous Brown Girls.

For Colored Girls Who have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is not Enuf written by Ntozake Shange, is a literary gem that we as women all remember being exposed to and treasuring after our first time reading or seeing the play. Written in the late '70s and being produced on stage for decades, Perry has now decided he wants to put his spin on it.

Many people have no problem voicing their concerns and are automatically going the defensive route with this choice-- with good reason I am sure. Even though it is hard for me not to join the mob on this one, I will not doom this project before giving it a shot. I am sure he is well aware of the masterpiece he is dealing with and how he is already on the bad side of many of the literary and film geniuses that he must know the he absolutely, positively BETTER not screw this up.

The movie has an all star cast with most of the "IT" black actresses from past and present who all have a solid resume. Veteran actresses like Loretta Divine, Whoopi Goldberg, and Phylicia Rashad will join the younger but respected actresses such as Kerry Washington, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose, and last but not least multi talented Janet Jackson.

Simply because BROWN girls are my passion, I can not downplay my natural excitement of this film due out November 5th... so needless to say.. I will be there to support.

Here is what Shange had to say about the film:
“I think it’s very good,” was Ms. Shange’s unhesitant verdict on Mr. Perry’s adaptation. “He kept a lot of my language, that’s what I liked most.”

Here is the emotionally charged trailer released last week

Lauryn Hill Speaks!

As we all know, Lauryn Hill has spent the last couple of weeks on the Rock The Bells Hip Hop Tour. Receiving praises from the masses, Lauryn teases the audience with glimpses of a comeback. Entertainment journalist Toure got a chance to interview her and the interview alone makes me thirsty for new material, but I totally respect her decision to control her own life and destiny for the sake of her sanity and her children. She is a true role model to all those who are musically gifted on how NOT to sell your soul for fame.

Like Solange Knowles says "F-ck the Industry..."

Watch Lauryn now!
