Queen Latifah adds hair model to her resume
The star is 'ecstatic' to be working with Pantene.
She’s a talented actress, an award-winning singer and one of the famous faces of Covergirl cosmetics, to name a few. But now, Queen Latifah is adding hair model to her growing list of accolades. The star has been announced as the newest face of Pantene.
According to People.com, Latifah will represent the hair care brand’s Truly Relaxed and Truly Natural Collection, something she’s been waiting quite a while to do. “I’ve wanted to work with them for a long time. When they first approached me, I thought, ‘Finally!’” she told the mag.“Having black hair is unique,” she explains, “in that black women change up styles a lot. You can walk down one street block in New York City and see 10 different hairstyles that black women are wearing: straight, curls, short cuts, braids — we really run the gamut. That means we have to have the products that really work for all of our various looks, and Pantene is so versatile.”

But just because she’s Queen Latifah doesn’t mean she hasn’t had a most embarrassing moment in the hair department — especially in her youth.

“When I was a freshman in high school, which is a serious time in your life for how people look at you [Editor's Note: Agreed!], everyone wanted to wear their hair curly. So this woman went to put curls in my hair, but I had permanently straight hair at the time and didn’t know you couldn’t go curly if you had that! Let’s just say I ended up looking like a hot mess. I’m glad I wasn’t insecure back then, because that would have been beyond devastating.”

You can rent a couture dress or a designer bag, but would you rent hair extensions?
To get the scoop on quick office party beauty tricks, we turned to Landy Dean, celebrity makeup artist at Marie Robinson salon. His simple tutorial requires only a handful of products, starting with the darkest, inkiest eyeliner you can find. Dean swears by the Nars Larger Than Life liners smudged over the waterline and lashline, topped off with a few coats of Maybelline The Falsies mascara. Before you dash off to apply product, there’s one small step that involves removing makeup. “If your foundation and concealer have caked or creased, I recommend a quick removal with a cleansing towelette and a redo to avoid heavy looking skin,” he cautions. For those who would prefer to go the easy route, apply a hydrating moisturizer using a stippling motion and a sponge. Finish the look with a dusting of BareMinerals Mineral Veil—“this will even out discolorations and give a reflective finish that still looks natural”—swap your work bag for a chic clutch, and get ready to ring in the season.
