YOUR SCORE: SHOULD YOU GO BALD?
Less than 10 points: Breathe easy, bro. You’re far from a Homer Simpson three-strand combover. Be sure to shampoo (1) and condition (2) your scalp regularly to keep your follicles frolicking.

Between 10-16 points: Some fuzz may be coming off the top like a freestyle, but don’t lose your head. Mount a preemptive strike and massage those fading fronts three or four times weekly with coconut milk (rinse out thoroughly) or warm organic castor oil to spark growth. If your hairline is so far gone, grab a Minoxidil-powered stimulant (3) for hair loss—check with your MD first—and pray for fruitful crops.

More than 16 points: Sorry, Fall Out Boy; your coif is gracing the side of a milk carton. Snip that remaining struggle hair with electric clippers (4), mowing against the grain. Smooth it out by exfoliating (5), then slicking on shaving cream (6) with a brush (7) and stroking in the direction of your hair’s (non) growth with a razor (8). Once you’ve bared all, tone with an alcohol-free astringent and sun-blocking moisturizer (9) for a Birdman-like chrome dome—minus the star tats.

Prep Your Pockets: Rihanna Reportedly Launching Luxury Fashion House With LVMH

Tackling more than music these days, Rihanna's brand has expanded past her "Pon de Replay" days. Nearly 14 years strong in this industry, the all-Fenty-everything empress is now gearing up to launch a luxury fashion house under her name.

According to multiple sources and Women's Wear Daily, LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton) and the 30-year-old singer/songwriter have been attending hush-hush meetings with the worlds largest luxury group. LVMH has reportedly also cherrypicked employees from within the company, including workers from Celine and Louis Vuitton to work with Rihanna and neighboring associates.

Though details about the launch are extremely limited at this time, many have already developed high hopes and expectations for the " Work" singer's newest business venture.

While this exciting new business venture marks an amazing high note for the Barbadian songstress, many fans await her highly anticipated return to music since her 2016 Anti LP. According to Ms. Fenty herself, her next project should be dropping sometime in 2019. The album was originally rumored to be a dancehall record meant to pay homage to her roots, but there has been no confirmation from RiRi since production began.

Michael B. Jordan Is The Face Of Coach's Men Label

If you have eyes that work (hell, even if you have one eye) then you can tell Michael B. Jordan won the genetic contest. The Creed II star is equally known for his roles in feature films as he is his face, which is why he's been tapped to represent the men's label for Coach.

The 31-year-old actor released a statement about the partnership and expressed great gratitude and excitement about his new venture.

“I’ve been a fan of Coach for a long time and truly respect their inclusive and optimistic values,” Jordan added. “I’m honored to be a part of Stuart’s vision and creative process.”

The admiration goes both ways. Coach Creative Director Stuart Vevers was equally thrilled with Jordan leading the campaign for the men's line.

"I’ve really enjoyed getting to know Michael over the last few years," Vevers said. "He has been a true supporter of Coach so it felt like a really natural step to collaborate more closely and create a partnership we can take to the next level."

While Jordan holds it down for the men, Selena Gomez remains the face for the women's side of the house.

Congrats to Mr. Jordan. We see you. [Insert eye emoji here]

Tiffany "New York" Pollard Hilariously Stars In Fenty Beauty's Gift Guide

We're deep into the holiday season, and it's clear that Rihanna's Fenty Beauty reign just won't let up. The 30-year-old Bajan star recently called upon the first lady of ratchet reality television, Tiffany Pollard – also known as "New York" from VH1's Flavor of Love and I Love New York –  to star in her latest video campaign vlog for the cosmetics line.

The 36-year-old reality show star looks fabulous in the nine-minute video uploaded on Sunday (Dec. 16), wearing brown lipstick with shoulder-length curly, black hair, acrylic nails, and gold jewelry on her neck and wrist.

Pollard gets straight to the point in the video starting, with the Pro’Filter Foundation saying "I feel younger and thinner, I didn’t know it could do all that, but it’s doing it!"

Other products from the Fenty Beauty collection includes the Killawatt Foil palette, the Frost Bunny-Frost Hunny-Frost Money eye, and lip sets and Gloss Bomb in Fu$$y. Pollard does what she does best while she speaks about on the various items, and she doesn't hold back on the profanity nor the R-rated commentary.

When the former I Love New York star posted a snippet of the vlog to her Instagram, she received a lot of love from her Hollywood peers under the post including Rachel True (The Craft), Dascha Polanco (OITNB), Melyssa Ford, Perez Hilton and her former castmate from Flavor of Love, Deelishis.

Despite her current absence on reality television on the moment, Pollard continues to stay relevant as memes and GIFs of her during her time on love show competitions lives on, as well pop-up exhibits of her in museums.Check out New York in Fenty Beauty's new gift guide video above.
