Madame C.J. Walker's Hair Line Launches At Sephora

Let me take you to school right quick.

Black History month has bid adieu, but if you don't know who the late, great, Madame C.J. Walker was -- allow me to hip you right quick. Miss Walker is the lady who paved the way for every African American sista's edges who has opted to get her hair fried, dyed and laid to the side every month or so.
She is the great grandmother of the hot comb. While she wasn't the one who patented the product, she did widen the teeth so that it was able to grab a hold and straighten all hair types.
With this being said, Madame C.J. Walker went on to become the first black woman millionaire in America. Almost one century since her death and the cut off of her amazing hair products, they are now back on the shelves and ready to be purchased.
The products are launched by Sundial Brands [known for their lines including Shea Moisture] can only be purchased at Sephora locations and online. The line consists of 25 products and unfortunately, won't be available at your local drugstore. So, what are you waiting for? Today is the day, run over to Sephora while you have the chance.

Will you be investing?

Princess Diana's Hairstyles
Princess Dianawas — and continues to be — a style icon. Beyond her captivating fashion looks, the"People's Princess"also had ever-changing hairstyles that inspired salon requests for a generation and then some. The iconic short haircut that she famously wore for more than a decade actually almost never happened, according to her longtime stylist Sam McKnight! 1981 For the official engagement announcement on February 24, 1981, the bride-to-be kept it simple, opting for soft layers. 1982 The new royal maintained a similar haircut during her first pregnancy, but added some bright highlights to freshen things up. 1982 The new mom introduced the world to her first son on June 21, 1982, with her hair perfectly swept back on the front and sides. 1983 In 1983, Princess Diana embarked on a major tour of Australia and New Zealand. At the state reception in Brisbane, she dressed up soft waves with the Spencer family tiara. 1984 After Harry was born on September 15, 1984, Diana stepped out of the hospital with a gravity-defying blowout. 1985 The Princess of Wales later returned to her familiar bangs, albeit with some poofy '80s volume. 1989 (jumped to 1989!) The royal looked blonder than ever at the Queen Mother's 89th Birthday celebration. 1992 This style for a royal banquet (shortly before announcing her separation from Charles) definitely embraces the curls. 1995 The "People's Princess" accepted her Humanitarian of the Year Award with super-shiny (and this time, dry) strands. 1997 In the last year of her life, the Princess styled short, blonde bangs. And with that, it's no wonder her gorgeous look defined an entire decade. What do you think! I personally love her hair... but the fact it never really changed surprised me :)

Kpop is Actually Born from Korean Protest Songs
Alright so I'm a total history nerd, I majored in East Asian Studies and eat stuff like this up. Read the full (long!) article here - I will try to explain it basically, but its really worth the read. Here we go: It all started with Japan. As you might know, Japan colonized Korea eventually trying to erase Korean culture all together on the peninsula. In the very beginning though, that wasn't the case. Japan was willing to share Korean and Japanese culture, and the Japanese and Korean elite often spoke together and traded pop culture. Japanese elite brought over Western-influenced music because of their connections with the Western world (which Korea didn't interact with other than missionaries at the time) The Korean elite wanted to be modern and successful like Japan, so they adopted this music (called Changga) as their new favorite genre. (You can hear a lot of European influences in early Korean music...) This is where it gets interesting. The Korean elite wanted to be independent of Japan. They wanted Korea to stand alone as a strong nation, not pushed around by China or Japan anymore. They stared the pro-independence movement. Now, most revolutions like this would turn to traditional music, traditional culture to strengthen the country (for example, Korea would use ancient Korean songs to protest the Japanese occupation) but the Korean elite didn't! They wanted Korea to be strong, and to be strong they felt like they needed to modernize - ie be like the West. They used this Changga music (ironically brought to them by Japan) to protest Japanese rule! To this day Korea is always trying to "keep up with" the Western world so that they can be considered modern and powerful. Most things that they do is to modernize and stay trendy because that is how the country has always defined strength. But then, Japan decided to make money off of that... Japan had seen its first real pop music hit in 1914. People were buying records, following tabloids, and really getting into pop culture. That was really the birth of the Japanese music industry. In 1926, Korea had a similar experience. A song called the "Death Song" appeared, sung by Yun Shim-Deok. The singer committed suicide with her lover right after the song was released and the story made HUGE headlines. It was chilling, 'romantic,' and dramatic. Korea ate it up. Japanese record companies came in and started selling the record, selling over 50,000 copies! (In 1926 that number is totally insane!) You can listen to the death song here: The record industry after that was run mainly by the Japanese yakuza and their partnered Korean gangsters. The industry was set up very similar to how it is now, with entertainment industries doing everything in-house (SM has specific song writers that only work for SM, and their artists are actors, singers, models, etc) This is also why so many Kpop artists become actors...because even back in the 1920s musicians couldn't make enough money so the real way to make a living was through acting. That still stands today. So, today's Kpop is based off of this first "Korean pop" hit (the death song) AND protest songs against Japan. So when people say that Kpop is just a copy of Western music, they're sort of right but not in the way that they're thinking. Yes, its a reflection of Western culture, but the reason behind it is that Korea has been fighting to be recognized as a modern, powerful force to be reckoned with since the early 1900s. They want people to know Korea is strong, modern, and a country to look up to, not look down upon. So the next time someone tells you Kpop is a lame copy of American pop - give them this little history lesson. Again, PLEASE read the full article - its so interesting! HERE it is!
