Q&A Tuesday: Beautifying Your Amber Rose Baldie

Q: What can an SYB babe do to beautify her Amber Rose baldie? She’s really mastered that smooth, uniformed look — what products, treatments would you recommend? — LA

A: Excuse me while I uncross my eyes. Don’t mind me, I get all scrambled whenever the future Ms. Khalifa’s name is mentioned. The lesbionic crush I have on this woman is painful. But I loved her pre-Wiz, back when she was Ye’s mute inamorata, instructed by him to say nothing  — just silently radiate iconic alien sex goddess realness.  Statuesque-stripper-cum-professional-plus-one as performance art. I thought she was genius, perched in day-glo leggings and psychotic sunglasses next to Anna Wintour at the shows, all pneumatic bod and bold baldie and image, nothing more. And yes, I realize this is a feminist nightmare, fetishizing a woman who’s voice was squelched by her man — but lighten up, it’s just fashion! She’s lost me with this Wiz Khalifa business, though. Is she really going all out for this rickety cricket of a rapper? He’s so…twee.

And yes, her dome is dope, divine, delicious. When rocking your Rosebud baldie, the most important thing to remember is to moisturize the hell out of it and slather on sunscreen every morning, no matter what time of year. This one-two punch keeps your look from getting flaky, dry, or discolored from sun damage. Check out these bald-and-beautiful products:

HeadBlade HeadLube Lotion

HeadBlade HeadLube Lotion ($9) moisturizes with shea butter and tea tree oil, absorbs quickly and comes in glossy or matte, depending upon what moment you’re going for. Sexy!

Mission Control Bald Head Balm

Matte for Men Complete Head Care Lotion

Matte for Men Complete Head Care Lotion ($30) keeps scalp skin hydrated, but without looking like an oil slick. Ew. Plus, it’s packed with broad spectrum protection.

    Ya know, I had such mixed feelings about one Amber Rose. Initially, I viewed her as a gold digger of sorts, just out for attention on the arm of Ye. Then it was over between them & I thought she should go take a seat somewhere & wave goodbye to her 15minutes but there she was, still causing a visual stir by simply walking down the street. I really didn’t get why Russell SImmons made such a big deal about her on his reality show. THEN I read a very candid interview she gave about how she was stripping in the bronx barely able to pay her rent when she was asked to appear in a music vid & through that met Ye, thinking nothing of his desire to call her. Then she went out to visit him with barely any luggage & days later she was sitting front row of a fashion show wearing 12k tights! I seriously had to let that sink in, so then it ends between but how in the world was she supposed to return to normalcy when he elevated her to damn near icon status. Everyone knows her name now & if paid crazy loot to host parties or get styled for mag covers, why the heck not? She said she saves her $ because she knows it won’t last forever but for right now, she’s relishing in the profitable attention. Can’t hate on her that. Plus she has her own style & look to boot.

    My cousin met Amber from years back at parties in Philly and she says she is cool people. Very nice, friendly and loyal. What she has with Wiz, good for her. The obviously clicked and that’s what’s important.

    I graduated from high school with Cameron (Wiz Khalifa). He’s one of the nicest & most down to earth guys you could ever meet. I like Amber Rose too. Her style is crazy. Love it. Wish I was brave enough to rock my hair super short like hers.
