Product Review: Get Beach Waves in 5 Simple Steps with 'Lotta Body'


Who doesn’t love having hair with a “Lotta Body”?

While the summertime heat prevails, I decided to ditch my bone straight mane and opt for more festive, beach waves. You know, that effortlessly sexy and bed head chic look our favorite celebrity Vixens have been rocking recently.

In five simple steps you too can have your own rendition of this seasons must-have beach waves. Follow accordingly:

  1. Follow your normal hair washing routine, but use only a dime-sized amount of conditioner to ends of hair (with this casually cool hair style the less product you use, the better, so it looks more natural).
  2. Leave hair wet, sectioning into various parts (how many parts you section is dependent upon how big or small you want your waves to be).
  3. Apply a liberal amount of Wrap Me Foaming Mousse to hair, which will eliminate frizz and define waves. Then braid the sectioned hair.
  4. Sleep with a satin bonnet to protect your precious mane overnight.
  5. Unbraid hair and finger comb waves to your liking. Apply a small amount of Style Me Texturizing Setting Lotion to hair for added shine and hold throughout the day so your waves don’t fall.

Personal Thoughts: To begin, the revamp of the Lotta Body brand is great, as the product overall looks more appealing and not as generic as it previously did. I think both the Foaming Mousse and Setting Lotion did an awesome job achieving the beach look on my brazilian extensions. The product is definitely something I could use on a daily basis when wearing a wash and go style on hotter days. Although I do like the Setting Lotion, I would probably only use the Foaming Mousse instead because using both might result in unwanted product build up and may weigh the hair  down more than I like.

Pros: Smell, Both are lightweight, Contains hydrating oils, Dries quickly

Cons: A tad bit sticky on hands, Didn't see a big difference in shine in Setting Lotion

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
