Oh, LaMont.

I’m not trying to pick on LaMont and this post isn’t really picking on him, so I hope he’s not pouting today or anything.

I had meant to post about this when I read the article, but then I forgot and then yesterday’s post reminded me.

A few weeks ago, LaMont had an article called Hair Force … I’ll pause for a moment in respect to that incredibly witty play on words … and the sub headline was “Pelusi style corps shines during NYC shows.”


Philip Pelusi was one of the stylists helping to shape the look of American women’s hair for next spring and summer. The Pittsburgh-based stylist, his creative director Jeffrey Rietz and four other Pelusi stylists coiffed models in designer Benjamin Cho’s Sept. 9 show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Mr. Pelusi and his crew collaborated with Mr. Cho to come up with edgy, avant-garde hair styles that complemented the designer’s urban-hipster-meets-futuristic-fantasy ensembles.

Here’s the shining examples of Philip Pelusi hairstyles:

My thoughts:

1.  I am not exaggerating when I say that I could do any of these styles in five minutes with a scrunchie, some kitchen scissors and a big ass can of Aqua Net.

2.  When did models get to be so blatantly fug?

3.  The middle boy-girl?  Every single white-trash, too skinny, acid washed jeans-wearing, grungy, smoking, probably gonna be pregnant before graduation girl in my suburban high school had that exact hair.

Futuristic fantasy/urban hipster. HAH!

Now, on that same day, LaMont also gave us the hair trends for the fall, saying that the “bob” is hot stuff.

This is the example he used from Matrix.

You guys, if I saw a woman walking down the street with that hair I’d be all, “Excuse me, honey, do you need help finding your spaceship or are they just going to beam you up back up soon?”

Also, LaMont?  Two posts in two days means that unless you really lose your shit, I’m going to leave you alone until at least Wednesday.

You’re welcome.

Oh, LaMont.

LaMont Jones, Pittsburgh’s prized fashion guru, had an article about saving money on hair care recently and he interviewed two top hair stylists to get us the correct information we need to know in order to get the best hair care for the best money.

Put aside your questions about what hair care has to do with fashion.

What’s important is that in true LaMont style, things got weird.

First he interviewed Philip Pelusi who gave this advice:

Don’t do your color at home. Doing so can waste rather than save money. Statistics have shown those who color at home often end up with a hair color mistake. Then they go to a salon for a corrective color service, which often ranges from $200 to $300.

Then he puts this in there from “celebrity stylist Wendy” which I’m guessing to mean she’s LaMont’s friend who does maybe like Becky Emmers‘ hair.

For big savings, switch to coloring your hair at home. A color close to your natural shade usually provides the best results. Try going one shade lighter for softer results.

So which is it LaMont?

Are we supposed to go to the salon or are we supposed to do it at home?

Join LaMont next week when he reveals the trends for hot Spring fashions:

  • The shade of periwinkle blue is hot this Spring.  Buy lots and lots of periwinkle blue things.  You can’t go wrong with periwinkle blue!
  • White is out, replaced with soft pinks.
  • Also, stay the hell away from periwinkle blue if you know what’s good for you. Blech.

Thanks LaMont!

You’re the best.

Oh, LaMont.

Q: It’s almost November and I still see a lot of people — especially guys — wearing khaki pants. Aren’t those out of season now?

A: Basically, yes. Pittsburgh, with four distinct seasons, isn’t one of those tropical climates where you can wear khakis nonstop. Although we’ve had some recent Indian summer warmth, khaki pants should have been cleaned and packed away by early September at the latest. Like seersucker, khaki fabric is too lightweight to wear in cold weather. For those who don’t know what to replace it with when jeans won’t do, options range from wool blends and corduroy to moleskin and suede.


1.  Yesterday, I saw an amazingly hot, tall, blonde chick walk down Fifth Avenue wearing gorgeous white pants with a black turtleneck and black boots.  I didn’t see a thing wrong with it.

2  I wore white pants with a black turtleneck and black do-me boots last week.  I didn’t see a thing wrong with it.

3.  I knew there was a Don’t Wear White After Labor Day Rule (which I ignore), but Don’t Wear Khakis After Labor Day?  Really?

4.  I hope you boys are scolding yourselves that you didn’t clean and pack your khakis away EARLY last month.  At. The. LATEST!

5.  Show of hands, gents.  How many of you were lost in your closets this morning, standing in your boxers, socks and a sweater while ripping out khaki after khaki all, “Honey?!  Where are my damned seersucker pants?!  Or my moleskins?  Or my sexy sexy suede pants?!  Is it too much to ask that I have at least my suede pants available to me?!  Those hos ain’t gonna pimp themselves out!”

Random n’at.

1.  As I Tweeted on Twitter, “Chuck is the best show ever.  Don’t argue with me.”

And the people started arguing.  Heroes.  Lost.  30 Rock.

All good shows.  All shows I watch.  Shows however whose altars I don’t worship at.

Chuck is where it is at.

2.  We haven’t had any Daniel Sepulveda eye-candy in a while, so here’s a recent picture of my self-united husband from the Steelers site:

Man.  He can wear some pants, can’t he?  And belts.  Yum.

3.  LaMont Jones has Facebook.  His most recent status:

LaMont is wishing I’d known that shirt was $275 before I got to the register. Jesus take the wheel…

Quickly looked at several and decided on that one. didn’t check price. diidn’t even know it was diesel until i got home a few minutes ago and tried it on. it’s sick, though, and no other guy at this dinner of 400 is going to be wearing it. or it’s ON!

It’s ON! Meaning he will get in a cat-fight with any other guy at the event who dares to wear the shirt.  Gosh.  I hope someone wore the shirt.  Because two guys clawing at each other’s perfectly moisturized faces?  Awesome.

He lists his favorite book as the Bible and chief among his interests is Spiritual Development and that is because LaMont is also a preacher at Rodman.

What?  You didn’t know that?


Also, his favorite show is Judge Judy.

Write your own joke.

4.  Up from 35, Pittsburgh is now ranked as the 28th best city for singles from Forbes Magazine.

Go Burghy!

5.  Did you guys see Pittsburgh’s own iJustine during the commercial breaks during RW/RR last night as the hostess of some game show with former RW/RRers?  She’s totally famous now.

6.  Do you watch RW/RR?  Ev is the shit!

Random n’at.

1.  Yesterday, the family, including Ohio Sister, gathered at Mother and Father of PittGirl’s house to watch football and hockey and eat S’mores around the fire.  I should tell you that Ohio Sister is a world-class S’mores maker.  She slow roasts the marshmallows over the very top of the fire.  This cooks that sucker all the way to the inside ensuring that the marshmallow melts the chocolate.  Then she puts peanut butter on the S’more for an orgasm on graham crackers.


As the hockey game was starting and the six hundred anthems were being sung:

PittGirl: Hey, Pens Fan?  I had a reader email me this week and tell me how hot and attractive she finds Tyler Kennedy.

Pens Fan: Was it Miss Piggy?

Pens Fan is such a snarky bitch.

2.  Sage advice from LaMont Jones about buying a winter coat:

• Try on a coat before buying it. Always.


3.  Skippy Skeeve got his own show! The Jeff Reed Show!

One of his co-hosts is LauRen Merola.

Now, Burghers, I did not stutter on the shift key.  That’s how she spells her name.  Not Lauren.  LauRen.

Also, listed as LauRen’s first thing she enjoys: Spinning.



Check out her MySpace because boys, I think you’re gonna like it.  Except for her profile picture.  Why is she standing like that?

(h/t J who tells me the promo video is painful to watch.)

4.  Screw it.  Forget models on the Skippy Skeeve Show who love to spin and who have six kajillion pictures of them looking like pure hot sex.

The next Smokin’ Hot Burgher is NOT LauRen.

It’s ‘Snot Rocket Science.

5.  Readers all over are sending me pictures to support their belief that Maxime Talbot is smokin’ hot.  I must admit that he gets more and more attractive every day.

I think I need to stop drinking.

6.  Reader Addie won the Steelers/Giants tickets when I drew number 115 via Randomizer.

If I don’t hear back from Addie in 24 hours, I’ll draw a new number.

Dom at tells me that he will have other tickets for giveaway for other games this season, so maybe next time will be your lucky day.
