The family that styles together…We’re really feeling this fabulous portrait from the latest season of the VH1 reality TV show “T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.” Each member of this talented family looks pretty amazing. Our faves: We adore Deyja’s hip glasses, Niq Niq’s topknot and Tiny’s sleek lengths adorned with sideswept bangs! And the guys? Well, we thing they look pretty fabulous too!

Just because it’s Monday…We’re bringing you double the style power today to boost our mane inspiration for the remainder of the week. Here to inspire us are two gorgeous stars with great style swagger and the same name (sort of): 106 & Park co-host Keshia Chante and singer Keyshia Cole. Television co-host Keshia Chante flaunts caramel waves detailed with a low part while reality TV diva and singer Keyshia Cole goes bold with a red-hot partial upsweep. Which look are you feeling?
