"Good Place" Star Jameela Jamil Opens Up About Her Personal Beauty Journey

Jameela Jamil's role as Tahani Al-Jamil on The Good Place has made her something of a fashion icon, as her character makes pretty much every floral maxi dress look like an extravagant ball gown.

Kelly Rowland on Her Short Hair in Destiny's Child: "It Was This Statement of Individuality"

Kelly Rowland has a lot of love for her hair - or, as she calls it, her "crown" - but that hasn't always been the case. As a preteen, the Destiny's Child alum struggled with embracing her natural texture due to mainstream perceptions about how women's hair should look. But by her earlier days with the girl group, that feeling managed to fade into the background thanks to the statement-making pixie cut she was known to sport. "I thought I was fly, period," she told POPSUGAR. "But I was like, 'Ok...

The Mastermind Behind Beyoncé's Lemonade Braids Gives Her Best Natural Hair Tips

When it comes to getting a hairstyle that makes you feel fresh and fly, braids are one of the best go-to options. Not only are there are so many different ways to wear them, but they also save you a ton of time while getting ready in the morning. Still, it can be easy to fall into the way of thinking that braids require no maintenance - a rhetoric that celebrity hairstylist Susan Oludele is working to reconstruct. Oludele, who has been doing hair since she was around 9 years old, specializes in...

Lupita Nyong'o Speaks Out on Black Hair Being "Shunned" Throughout History

Lupita Nyong'o has nothing but love for her natural hair, and she wants to empower other black women to feel the same way. In , the 35-year-old Black Panther actress explained her hair "historically, has been shunned" and today people still make assumptions about it and how it affects her career. "Natural, African, kinky hair - it's often been painted as uncivilized or wild," Nyong'o said. Even as one of the most powerful actresses in Hollywood, she's no stranger to this prejudice in the indu...

What It's Like Living With Macrodactyly, a Condition That Most People Have Never Heard Of

I can remember being 4, in a booster seat in the back of my dad's car. I don't remember where we were going, but I distinctly remember holding up my middle finger so the people driving behind us could see it. My dad saw what I was doing, and if my memory is correct, he made eye contact with me in the rearview mirror and said, "Jess-Jess, what are you doing? Put your finger down - that's not nice." To which I replied with something along the lines of, "I'm just showing the people behind us my bi...

Beautyblender's Founder Talks the Brand's First-Ever Foundation - and It's 32 Shades

In the social media age, words like "major," "epic," and "game changing" can lose meaning when you see them in the comments section of nearly every big brand's posts.

The Black Girl's Braid Dictionary, From Box Braids to Marley Twists

Ever since I was a little girl, Summer was the time my mother would braid my hair. The styles took hours to create, and, of course, I never quite cooperated (which earned me several hand slaps with the comb). However the intricate cornrows would keep my hair untangled through weeks of swimming and day camp. But Summer braids aren't just reserved for little girls (nor are they reserved for Summer!). Many of my friends are still making appointments to get plaits before a big vacation or to take a ...

CoverGirl Launches Its Most Inclusive Foundation Range Ever

Finding your perfect foundation shade is just half of the purchasing battle. Of course, any brand offering a wide and inclusive range of shades that match a variety of skin tones should be lauded.

Haters Shamed Cardi B For Stomach Hair, and I'm Never Going on the Internet Again

Cardi looked like a modern-day In Living Color episode, and I never want to go back to real life again after seeing her work it. Image Source: CBS That should be the end of the...

Iconic Dancer and Grey's Anatomy Actress Debbie Allen Has 1 Secret to Self-Confidence

If you grew up taking ballet classes, you know the name Debbie Allen like you know bobby pins and pointe shoes. The verified triple threat has graced the dance, film, and TV worlds since the mid-'70s, and if you're too young to know her from Fame (both the OG and the reboot!), you've definitely seen her as Dr. Catherine Avery on Grey's Anatomy, or watched her directorial turn on Insecure.

Rihanna Revealed How Much Fenty Made in 40 Days, and We're Blown Away

We all knew that Rihanna's Fenty Beauty disrupted the entire beauty industry when it launched in September 2017. It lit a fire under the collective industry's ass, demonstrating that offering a wider spectrum of shades wasn't just the responsible thing to do, but that it made financial sense. Time even named Fenty one of the most important inventions of 2017, putting it right up there with glasses that give sight to the blind, athletic hijabs, Halo Top ice cream, and Tesla's electric cars.

This New Pinterest Feature Allows You to Search Beauty Looks Based on Skin Tone

Confession time: the writing of this article was delayed due to my playing around with Pinterest for a half hour or so. The website is a hive of gorgeous beauty looks that are worth the time suck.

Whatever you want - a new cut, color, or motivation to finally get bangs - you'll find it on Pinterest. Now, the site has rolled ...

Whenever she speaks, we always perk up to hear what the 21-year-old has to say, whether it's when she does her own makeup for red carpet appearances or shares her favorite affordable skincare products. Likewise, we dig how she's not afraid to speak out for what she believes in, such as when she told POPSUGAR how important it is that media outlets correctly report on hairstyles that appropriate other cultures.
