Queen Latifah: Her Best Hair?

Published in: Just For Fun

Did you see Queen Latifah working her royal purple gown at the People’s Choice Awards the other night? I think she does a great job with her looks for red carpet events.


I’ve been a fan since her Ladies First days. Like her ever-evolving career, her hairstyles have also gone through some changes. Now, if only girlfriend would make another rap album (OOH! With guest artist Lauryn Hill… Hey, a girl can dream.).

Which of Queen Latifah's hairstyles do you like best?

Oooo… tabbies first, tabbies first

Check out the first face I saw this morning. Tabs has taken it upon himself to work as my alarm clock, waking me up with wet kitty kisses just before the a$$ crack of dawn. It’s REALLY annoying, but he’s got me figured out. He knows I can’t stay mad at him long.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. It hasn’t occurred to me for years, but I forgot that Queen Latifah is just a stage name. Her real name is Dana Elaine Owens.

    I like #2 & #5! Aww, love that little Tabs. My kitties do the same thing to me in the morning. Except instead of waking me up with kitty kisses, they meow their little arses off. It is sooooo loud.

  3. Tabs is so cute! So my fat Maine Coon Sammy wakes me up constantly DEMANDING water from the bathroom sink. It’s the only way he will drink water. He gets up on the counter and scratches furiously at the mirror until we turn the faucet on for him. Talk about annoying! But really who am I kidding, he’s so cute I could never really get mad at him.

    Oooh, look at that face! You’ve gotta love him! He is definitely cute, please submit his picture to a cat magazine 🙂

    I like Queen, she is very original. #2 and #9 are my favorites. Remember that award show when she kissed Hugh Jackman? That was so funny, she even wiped her lipgloss off his lips!

    Hi Jen,

    LOL, yah, he’s a pretty boy. That’s the only reason why he gets away with his shenanigans.

  6. Karen says:

    Hi Katee,

    Aww, that’s cute. Tabs has the most feeble meow ever, LOL. He sounds like an old man cat when he tries.

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    That’s too funny! Isn’t it funny how cats think that scratching at things makes miracles happen?

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    I think I just might! He’s got a chip in his ear, but I think that adds character.

    Hope you’re having a good week so far. 🙂

    Tabs looks sooo cute! Totally unrelated to this post, but I saw this site and thought of you:

    Because of your photo post the other day 🙂

    Hey Karen! Super cute pic of Tabs!! I absolutely love #2 of Queen L. That covergirl ad was the shiz. I actually love it when she wore the nefertiti style hats back in the 80’s. Her Dana Owens album is fab. Have you listened? Oh on nylon’s beauty website they were dishing about Too Faced new lipgloss that changes color according to your mood. Oh and it gets better! It was inspired by the Smurfs!! Woot! I always liked Gargamaal’s cat though I could never remember the name! Happy Thursday!

    Tabs! What a face! So funny–I couldn’t be mad at that in the morning either. He’s too cute!
    Love all of Queen’s looks, except the platinum blonde.

  14. Glosslizard says:

    I love Queen Latifah! She has such a lovely face and great cheekbones, so I like her hair best when it’s off her face!

    Speaking of beautiful faces, what a great sight first thing in the morning! It’s just too bad the that first thing has to happen so soon! 😉

    Vampy Varnish, I have three cats and two of them line up every morning to get first dibs at the bathroom sink!

  15. Andrea says:

    I like two and four 😀 Looks lovely with the hair up

  16. Briana says:

    Aaaw, Tabs is so cute lol.
    That sucks about him waking you up so early! I guess I’m lucky that my cat is not the snuggly type and doesn’t really care if I sleep in, she leaves me alone. But she also attacks and bites sometimes… I’m not sure if being woke up early is worse or better than that.

  17. Miss QQ says:

    Hi Karen. Thanks for the random fact about Queen Latifah’s real name. Tabs is adorable! I hope he is all well now.

  18. ZAJA Natural says:

    I picked #2, she looks so pretty with the dark chestnut color. She is one of those women who do not need a lot to make a statement. I love that she embraces her size and carries herself with pride. A gorgeous woman!

    I voted for picture no 4. I think is simple and stylish

    Hi Tiffany,

    YAH! That’s the effect I was going for! Smashing magazine is great — it’s one of my favorite sites, too.

    Hope you are enjoying your BBR stuff! Let me know what looks you end up doing. 🙂

  21. Karen says:

    Hi Tania,

    Yah! It’s really good! I swear that woman can do know wrong. She will have to release another rap album soon, though… *crosses fingers*.

  22. Karen says:

    Hi YadiQ,

    LOL! I totally remember that fun Smurf tidbit.

    I bet you’ll the Too Faced Smurf collection will totally rock your boat. 🙂

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Karen4,

    He makes it tough, LOL.

    Yeah, the platinum blonde was definitely a risk. I dunno… I think the shade is a bit too cool for her.

  25. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    I know! I wish I could ask him to reprogram his tummy for one hour later. Then I’d be all set!

    Cute that your kitties get in line to hit up the saloon (aka the bathroom sink). 🙂

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Andrea,

    I like both of those as well! I wish I could rock a ponytail like that! I’m afraid it would give me a headache, though.

  27. Karen says:

    Hi Briana,

    Your kitty sounds like a character, too. In a way I’m a bit jealous that she’s so independent. Tabs is very needy! If he wants attention he demands it, ASAP.

  28. Karen says:

    Hi Miss QQ,

    You’re welcome. You never know… perhaps you’ll need that bit of info some day when you’re playing trivia!

    Tabs is feeling much better, thanks for asking. He’s on his way to being 100% diva once more. 🙂

  29. Karen says:

    Hi Zaja Natural,

    Yeah, she rocks!

  30. Karen says:

    Hi Tavia,

    I agree! It’s a very elegant look. 🙂
