Are Hair Booms a Bust?
As most of you are now aware, Matter of Trust (, a San Francisco-based environmental non-profit organization, has helped clean up oil spills since 1998 by reusing donated hair clippings from hair salons, barber shops, pet groomers, and wool farmers. These donated manes are stuffed into recycled nylon stockings, creating highly absorbent booms to help contain oil spills. Since the Gulf Coast oil spill began, the group has been coordinating efforts to collect donations in temporary warehousing along the coast.

Jessica Simspon's wigging out???
Today, Ken Paves tweeted these pix of BFF Jessica Simpson and what appears to be her new, supershort pixie cut. I don't know, but I think it's a wig. Although I love the way it looks in the profile shot, not too sure about the head-on picture: She looks a little too like the pre-extension Kate Gosselin for my liking. What do you think? Do you think it's a wig? Do you prefer her hair short or long?

Beauty At Your Fingertips
Remember the days when beauty wasn't easily accessible? And by easily accessible, I mean you had to do a little bit of hard labor...I mean research: thumb through the Yellow Pages, ask for word-of-mouth referrals (which are still priceless), be a walk-in at your own peril.

Crash and Perm?
I don't know about most people, but no matter how late I was for my hair appointment, I wouldn't crash my car into a salon. I'm just sayin'. According to, Marion Zock, 82, of Plainfield Township, Michigan, accidentally plowed her Ford Fusion into Classic Hair Design salon yesterday morning as she mistakenly stepped on the accelerator while trying to fit into a tight parking spot.
