Make Everyday a Good Hair Day With This Elite Hair Dryer

Attempting to achieve the perfect salon-quality blowout at home is hard. You’ve probably spent far too many hours fumbling with your brush and hairdryer, only to come out with semi-frizzy locks at best. But maybe you’re not the one to blame here — it’s probably your subpar hairdryer.

If you want to have a good hair day every single day of the week, Tiri Pro’s Prisma Ionic Dryer is a thoughtfully-engineered dryer that will give Dyson a run for its money — and at a fraction of the price. With adjustable airflow and advanced far infrared ceramic heater in tow, it provides more control compared to traditional dryers. It generates negative ions that help repair your hair as it dries, and it’s capable of drying your hair up to 60% faster than standard hairdryers. It even adds body, volume, and shine and reduces static and frizz thanks to the combined power of crushed tourmaline gemstone elements and ionic technology that work together to give you effortless styling results.

Typically, the Prisma Ionic Dryer retails for $150, but for a limited time, you can grab it on sale for $69.99 — that’s 53 percent off, and an overall outstanding deal for a luxury hairdryer.

Yes, Really, These Swarovski Birthstone Stud Earrings Are Only $10 Today

When it comes to accessorizing, the general rule of thumb is the bigger, the bolder, the better. But that just isn’t the case these days. As fashion pivots to minimalistic trends, everyone is finally realizing how incredibly chic and elegant tiny studs are, and always have been. Sure, they’re more subdued compared to hoops and dangles, but they add a sparkle to any outfit.

Unfortunately, studs tend to be on the pricier side (think diamonds), save for the Swarovski Crystal 0.28″ Birthstone Stud Earrings, which are now on sale for $9.99 a pair. Yes, really.

Crafted with 18k white gold plating and certified gemstones, these earrings can complement any look. You can take your pick from a variety of colors, all themed according to birth stones — onyx, sapphire, and topaz, among others. Even though they’re easy on the wallet, they’re still guaranteed to retain color and shine and last a lifetime. Plus, they’re hypoallergenic and offer a comfortable fit, making them a joy to wear.

Usually retailing for $199.99, you can snag the Swarovski Crystal 0.28″ Birthstone Stud Earrings on sale in your choice of gemstone for only $9.99.

Jailed R. Kelly Complains That He’s Too Sick For Lockup & Being Kept Away From Both Girlfriends In Letter To Judge (Exclusive Details)

Disgraced Singer Has Been Locked Up For More Than Two Months On Child Sex Abuse Charges

He’s been locked up for more than two months, and R. Kelly has complained that his life is nothing short of hell.

The “Pied Piper” revealed that he’s suffering from a host of health ailments, can’t see his two young gal pals at the same time and doesn’t have enough phone time while he remains behind bars and without bail on federal sex abuse charges.

In a letter to the judge, the lawyer for the “Step In The Name Of Love” singer said his health has rapidly deteriorated since he was jailed on July 16. Steve Greenberg said his client is now dealing with acute anxiety, numbness in his hand and untreated hernia – and isn’t getting proper medical care.

And to add insult to injury, Greenberg said Kelly can only visit with one of the girlfriends at once, and had to wait an entire 90 days in order to see the other.

Greenberg wrote the letter to try to persuade the judge to release the disgraced singer on bail. The lawyer pointed out that Kelly is broke – so he doesn’t have the means to pay off witnesses or to skip town. He said that the feds had confiscated his passport, so there’s no way that he could leave the country, and he reiterated that Kelly didn’t have a criminal record and didn’t run away during his first child sex trial more than 10 years ago.

The judge has yet to rule on the motion.

‘The Color Purple’ Actress Sues Show After Being Fired For Old Homophobic Post

Actress Oluwaseyi “Seyi” Omooba was cut from the U.K. production of The Color Purple because of past homophobic comments and now she’s clapping back with a lawsuit.

According to Pink News, Omooba was supposed to play the lead role of Celie who, ironically, has a queer relationship in the story. Yet, Omooba still chose to be homophobic, building off a 2014 Facebook post where she cited religion for her beliefs.

Hamilton star Aaron Lee Lambert pulled up the old post, which partly read:

“I do not believe you can be born gay, and I do not believe homosexuality is right, though the laws of this land has made it legal doesn’t mean its [sic] right. I do believe that everyone sins and falls into temptation but its [sic] by the asking of forgiveness, repentance and the grace of God that we overcome and live how God ordained us too [sic].”

In his tweet of the post, Lambert asked Omooba, “Do you still stand by this post? Or are you happy to remain a hypocrite? Seeing as you’ve now been announced to be playing an LGBTQ character, I think you owe your LGBTQ peers an explanation. Immediately.”

Omooba was advised by Leicester’s Curve Theatre and her agency, Michael Garrett Associates, to retract her post and to apologize. However, she refused to do this, citing her Christian faith as an excuse.

I really wanted the role but what they wanted me to do was completely against my faith. I did not want to lie just to keep a job,” she told The Daily Mail. “I just quoted what the Bible says about homosexuality, the need for repentance, but ultimately God’s love for all humanity.”

Omooba insisted that she’s not homophobic.

“I stand by what I wrote, but had I known that it would have come to this, I would have set my account to the privacy mode.”

Riiiight. Like that would’ve helped.

Since her statements were brought to light, she was let go from The Color Purple production, and she was dropped by her agents. Omooba says when she tried to reach out to agents who were once eager to sign her, only one responded, acknowledging that she was ‘talented but misguided’ and brainwashed by her religion.

“I’m heartbroken,” Omooba said. “If I’m unable to get back to the stage, then I feel there is no point. It’s the only thing I have ever wanted since I was a young girl.”

Omooba has now filed a lawsuit against Michael Garrett Associates for religious discrimination. The group hasn’t commented on Omooba’s lawsuit, but the Curve Theatre told The Daily Mail, “The comments made by Seyi have caused significant and widely expressed concerns both on social media and in the wider press. Following careful reflection, it has been decided Seyi will no longer be involved with the production.”

Guess we’ll have to wait and find out if Omooba will have any weight in court. Until then, she might want to just get started on that church production of A Color Purple. Surely, it’ll be an entirely different musical with some of the most important themes lost.
