MTV VMAs #Wigspiration: Nicki Minaj and Kylie Jenner

Did you catch any “wigspiration” at the MTV VMAs?

Hip-hop rapper Nicki Minaj and Kardashian family member Kylie Jenner might not have a lot in common, but Sunday’s awards show proved they might have had a similar mindset when it came to their wig of choice.mtv vmas, nicki minaj, kylie jenner, wigs, wig, hair, kardashian

Both ladies opted for a sleek, dark look with blunt bangs. While Nicki has donned this classic style many times before, the 18-year-old Kylie hasn’t sported this look since she was a tween way back when.

It’s no secret the acclaimed rapper and reality television personality love to experiment with wigs (particularly Minaj), but we were happy to see these fashion icons keeping it timeless on the red carpet!

You also might have noticed the two wore similar colors: Nicki in a partially see-through golden Labourjoisie gown, and Kylie in a nude Balmain bodycon dress.

Girl Power indeed.

Movie star and flawless individual Melissa McCarthy posted an incredible picture on Instagram yesterday of the crew from the upcoming all-female Ghostbusters movie and made a ton of people smile.

Her caption read, “3 cheers to @theellenshow from all the remarkable women of #ghostbusters. When we stand together we are unstoppable! #girlpower”

Despite the backlash from haters (mostly angry men who couldn’t care less about the diversity problem facing Hollywood) the Mike & Molly star, along with Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, posed with their fellow talented crew members to remind us all of the extraordinary work of women can– and will do, even with the odds stacked against them.

Ghostbusters is coming out in 2016, don’t miss it!

Coming Soon! Elline’s Interview on Working Woman Report

working woman report, lemetric, elline surianelloLeMetric Founder Elline Surianello was interviewed by Allison Haunss, host of TV program Working Woman Report, for her segment on the rise of women entrepreneurs going mobile.

There’s no question mobile businesses are on the rise as owners are realizing the major growth opportunity of going to where your customers are. In today’s fast-paced world, there’s nothing more important to consumers than time, convenience, and accessibility when it comes to the services and products they need.

Elline realized this immediately and the LeMetric Mobile Hair Studio was born in 2012 to outstanding reviews. Our custom-designed Mercedes-Benz Sprinter turned all-in-one beauty studio has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur.com, and more!

Working Woman Report is a multimedia content platform which explores female inspired businesses and entrepreneurship. As an established female entrepreneur of 30 years, Elline was very happy to have been interviewed by Allison for this exciting feature!

Stay tuned, the segment will be airing on RNN-TV soon!

Freedom of Hair! Why We Love Pharrell’s Latest Music Video and Its Empowering Message

Other than being amazingly catchy, Pharrell Williams’ new single Freedom and its accompanying music video is both a lyrical and visual treat for the senses with compelling scenes of nature, conflict, and the differing cultures of men, women, and children of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities.

What particularly caught our eye was the sequence of clips beginning at 1:12—several rows of women taking off their wigs. Freedom indeed!

Clad in pastel outfits and wigs of varying colors and lengths, the women in the video are seen standing completely still, only later tapping their hands along with the beat and then walking away after removing their wigs in a dramatic fashion.

A woman taking off her wig is not something we see every day, nor is it something we usually see in mainstream media. In fact, women go to great lengths to prevent any knowledge that their hair is not their own. The long-enduring stigma placed on women dealing with hair loss and hair thinning is not wildly talked about and the concept of female pattern baldness is not yet accepted in modern society.

The women in the music video do not truly represent the female hair loss community (they appear to not have any hair loss issues), but we believe the video’s meaning and its juxtaposition of visually stimulating images definitely encourage freedom of self, diversity, culture, and of course, hair.

Freedom2Freedom3

We support women’s personal sense of freedom, whether it’s putting on a wig every day or showing off their bald and bold sense of style! As Pharrell sings,

Who cares what they see?
Who cares what they know?

What was your interpretation of “freedom” from the video? What does freedom mean to you? Watch the video below and let us know in the comment section!
