A lot of women love their high heels, and there are plenty of cross-dressing men who swear by them as well. One of those is Atlanta hairstylist Derek J., who may have inspired the new Morehouse dress code (men attending the school can no longer wear heels or any blatantly “feminine” clothing.) He’s also inspired the Atlanta housewives and will return to the Bravo weaves-and-whine fest when “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” heads back to the airwaves on Nov. 6. The drama continues, of course, with Nene battling, well just about everyone, Kim’s pregnancy, Apollo and Phaedra’s new baby, Cynthia and Peter’s new marriage and Nene’s possible new relationship. Oh, and the wives head to Africa, in what is sure to be classic RHOA material.

Derek J also just finished his second season of Oxygen Network’s “Hair Battle Spectacular” which aired last night with Nostradamus declared the winner. Derek’s salon, The J Spot, which started it all, moves to a new Atlanta location on Oct. 13. You may remember Derek J. as the winner of the Bronner Bros. Hair Battle Royale competition in Chris Rock’s documentary “Good Hair.” That win led him to the attention of RHOA producers and the rest is hair history. Despite his television and film success, Derek J. says that his career as a hairstylist remains his first priority. As he says in his bio, “I definitely go into a creative zone, but I also know how things work and the fact that I went to fashion school, I’m using everything I learned about fashion and applying it to hair. Trend forecasting, color blending, it’s all the same because hair is an accessory.”
