I revealed the finalists in the StraightFromTheA Derek J makeover giveaway?on October 25, 2012.
I’d received so many entries that I just couldn’t go through them all by myself, so I had to call in some reinforcement.
Since celebrity hairstylist Derek J was unavailable that night, my boo Funky Dineva stopped by last night in her best wig to help me weed through the entries.

But enough about me… this is about YOU! I pulled a Nene Leakes and decided to do what Sandra did.
