Word on the curb is that Lil Kim
and cousin/business partner Katrise Jones have added a new location to their hair salon franchise.
Kim chose Charlotte, North Carolina as the latest spot for their venue and held the grand opening for the 5th location of Salon Se Swa on October 31st.
Patrons can now visit the 3,600 square-foot salon for wash and sets, hair weaves, eyelash sew-ins, relaxers, and wigs.
Lil Kim teamed up with Jones this past September to become co-owner of Salon Se Swa, which was established by Jones in 1999. The pair now have salon locations in Raleigh, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and Rocky Mount, North Carolina in addition to their latest shop.
“This new location allows us to cater to a larger customer base and better serve the needs of not only Charlotte, but also its surrounding areas,” Jones says.
“We are extremely excited about our upcoming Customer Appreciation Day. Our clientele is vital to the success of our blossoming business. They appreciate the high end services that we provide and we in turn appreciate them returning for a few hours each week, as they get dolled up and pampered.”
It’s awesome that Kim has invested in something can be profitable and maybe even a “fall-back” career if she ever decides to give up on that rap comeback.

Usher Raymond IV
decided recently that it was time for a NEW LOOK.

Ursh hit the tweets and gave his fans a play-by-play as he chose to ditch the sexy mysterious look of the scruffy beard for a more innocent look…. Usher circa “My Way” (1997).
Did Usher accomplish the time machine task? The great reveal below… Continue Reading…
Atlanta’s own Cee-Lo Green
was spotted taking a leisurely stroll down the streets of Hollyweird and while he’s normally known for pushing the fashion envelope, Lo was all casual everything from head to toe.
Rocking a white tee and gray sweats, Lo appeared the epitome of low-key swag, that is… until you scanned down to his feet!
*blank stare* 😯
Granted, Lo hasn’t quite stepped into the stiletto realm of celebrity hairstylist Derek J (yet) but he’s awfully close!
