From head to toe, Kelly Rowland always looks like a million bucks, so we were surprised to learn that her favorite beauty secret is something we can all achieve at home — and costs practically nothing.
“I like moles. I think they’re the cutest thing. It’s all Marilyn Monroe’s fault,” she tells People magazine of her knack for adding a DIY beauty mark on her face. “I remember one day seeing the black Duo glue that I put my lashes on with [and trying it on my face]. I let it dry and it was raised and everything. It was the cutest stinking mole, and I was sold. I never walk out of the house without a mole. It can be anywhere on my face — it’s the forever moving mole.”
The singer, who was recently named Caress’s new celebrity “Fabulista,” goes on to share that her adorable new bob is actually the result of an at-home dye job gone wrong.
“I wanted to experiment and color my own hair. That was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I thought it was semi-permanent color. It was permanent color. I was packing up to leave for a red-eye flight, and I thought that I’d have enough time to rinse it out cause I’ve kept semi-permanent color on long before. I ended up keeping it in for almost two hours and the permanent color ate all of my hair,” Rowland explains.
“My hair had grown down to, like, right where my shoulder hits, it was nice and healthy and thick. I went and reached for the back of my hair and it was all in my hand! So I went to my stylist the next day and said, ‘So, my hair’s broken off, I need you to fix it.’ He was like, ‘How did this happen?’ and then cut all my hair off and it just turned out really cute. I actually used Beyoncé’s hairstylist, Neal [Farinah]. Neal cut my hair and I love it.”
