The Curious Case of Taraji P. Henson’s Hair

Back in the days of the 2009 Oscars and Independent Spirit Awards, I had a serious thing for Taraji P. Henson’s hair. So when she showed up to the MTV Movie Awards rocking a Jenny Humphrey mullet, I was all, “Oh no she didn’t kick ole Bob to the curb!”

But I have to admit that her new edgy do is growing on me.

And how does she get her hair to shine like the top of the Chrysler Building? I wouldn’t be surprised if her secret shine weapon was Moroccanoil Gold Glimmer Shine. That spray is beyond compare!

Cameron Diaz Did NOT Pull A Britney For My Sister’s Keeper

In her latest film, My Sister’s Keeper, Cameron Diaz plays the mother of a girl battling leukemia. In a particularly poignant scene, her character shaves her locks in an act of solidarity with her eldest daughter. But don’t be fooled. Cammie didn’t actually pull a Britney. It was just a wig cap and some clever movie magic.

She tells Metro newspaper, “If I shaved my head and my hair was this long right now, they would have me in a lab somewhere. Kerastase or L’Oreal would have already taken me somewhere.”
