Hair Robbery Is Acutally A Crime in Venezuela: Women in Venezuela apparently need to be more protective over their hair. The Huffington Post reports that "a group known as “piranhas” are now stealing women’s hair -- and they prefer it straight." The piranhas apparently hold women at gunpoint in Maracaibo and ask the women to put their hair into a ponytail, making it easier to cut. They then reportedly sell the female hair to local salons as hair extensions. Eveling de Rosales, Maracaibo's mayor, stated that “men and women were being placed to guard and avoid [the situation from] happening again.” [The Huffington Post]

Oprah Dons 3.5 Pound Afro on O Magazine Cover: For the September issue of her namesake magazine, Oprah donned a 3.5-pound afro nicknamed "Wild Thang." She compared it to "carrying around an extra head." Oprah even tweeted her excitement over the cover, writing "Just revealed this new cover of @o_magazine - 1 of my faves ever - Let's talk about HAIR!" [Daily Mail]

Britney Spears Wears a Not-So-Holy Ensemble to Church: Britney Spears attended church Sunday with her boyfriend David Lucado wearing a too-short and too-tight sweaterdress. The singer's thigh-high stilettos and tight turtleneck mini were an intersting choice for Sunday best. [The Cut]

Rihanna Celebrates Carnival in a Jewel-Encrusted Bikini: We all know RiRi loves anything bedazzled and cropped, so it's no surprise that the singer rocked a barely-there, jewel encrusted bikini as she rode on a float during Barbados's Carnival. The singer accessorized her outfit -- or lack there of -- with giant white wings, fishnets, and a bejeweled and feathered headpiece. [Marie Claire UK]

Jack White Challenges Karen Elson's Restraining Order: Last week, model Karen Elson was granted a restraining order against ex-husband Jack White following harrassment allegations. The White Stripes singer is now fighting back, countersuing Elson's claims with a series of e-mails in which she "praises his parenting skills." The countermotion states: "The reason for filing this response is that Mr White does not want to be portrayed as something he is not - violent towards his wife and children. One who is truly fearful of another would not leave their children alone with that person for 10 days. The truth of the matter is that Ms Elson is not fearful for herself or the parties' minor children." [Vogue UK]
