Rachel Dolezal Does Hair Now And Black Women Are Lining Up

Well, this is interesting...

If you're looking for some one to do your faux locks, color weaves, and cornrows, you can now look no further than Rachel Dolezal's kitchen. Yep, you heard it right – Rachel Dolezal, the former NAACP president who notoriously lied about being black, has a hair styling business, and apparently black women are lining up.

According to a series of photos Dolezal shared online, she offers a variety of styles. She reportedly offers an array of cornrows and plaits, faux dreads, weaves, and coloring. And surprisingly, she isn't bad.

In one photo on Instagram, a woman is seen rocking a full head of neatly twisted faux dreads. In others, Dolezal boasts about her hair dying technique. There's a rainbow of colors including royal blue, lizard green, and more. "Where the magic happens #timetowork #hairchair #morebraidingtoday," she wrote in the caption of a photo she shared on Apr. 9.

As you could imagine, Twitter has mixed feelings about Dolezal's hidden talent. Many of them clowned her, while others celebrated how good she is.

Check out  some of Rachel Dolezal's in-kitchen styles and fan reactions below.

Puma Releases RS-X Hard Drive Sneakers With Detroit Rapper B Free

Puma has collaborated a lot with Detroit rappers in recent years, and now they've teamed up with 313 youngster B Free.

B Free has garnered buzz for his songs "Platinum Plus," and more recently "All Mine," which sees him trading melodic flows with Diggy Simmons. As a result, he's teamed with Puma to debut sneakers - the latest pair being the RS-X Hard Drive running shoe. The RS-X Hard Drive combines an 80s-inspired design with Puma's Running System (RS) Technology, which integrates cushioning from the forefoot through the heel.

The latest project isn't Puma's first collaboration with Detroit hip-hop style. Big Sean released an entire line of Puma apparel and sneakers last fall, and Detroit street rapper Icewear Vezzo teamed with Burn Rubber sneaker boutique co-owner and Distinct Life founder Rick Williams for a pair of purple Puma suedes.

Along with his deal with Puma, B Free is also working directly with the Detroit Pistons for the upcoming NBA season. He will be appearing in commercials, performing at home games, and claims the title as the official voice of the Pistons.

The Puma RS-X Hard Drive is available now.

August just got a little hotter with two new fashion collections dropping this month.

Beyoncé unveiled her '90s-inspired "BeySearch" Friday (Aug. 9) while H&M is set to unveil their South African collaboration on Thursday (Aug. 15).

Queen Bey surprised fans with new a merch capsule on her official website on Friday afternoon. Fanny packs, bodycon dresses, bucket hats, crop tops, windbreakers, and more are designed with Google searched images that highlight every monumental step her in career.

The aesthetic is to appeal to a "90s teenager's bedroom walls combined with the tidal wave of today's meme culture," as said in a press release.

H&M is to release a legendary collection with the South African brand, Mantsho. Essence reports that the collection will feature edgy African-inspired prints that celebrate the elegance and vibrancy of Africa. Mantsho translates to "black is beautiful" from the native Sesotho language.

Established in 2004, the label has appeared on fashion runways in the U.S., Greece, India, Jamaica, Nigeria, Botswana, and Senegal. This will make H&M's first collaboration with a South African brand.

"This is my love letter to the world from Africa," said Mantsho's head of design, Palesa Mokubung. "I hope customers around the world will enjoy this ensemble of my stand-out pieces from my last three collections."

You can shop "BeySearch" here. The latest H&M collection will be available next Thursday (Aug. 15).
