When in doubt about your hair and appearance, ask...


WWEMD?

Save for her appearance in Airplane and the cover of her disco album, the Merm was an expert at how to look her best.

Sure, she had a voice that could blast the skin off a ripe peach.  But she always looked her best.

So remember, if you see an outfit, or a hair style, tattoo, before you buy, ask, what would Ethel Merman do? 

I think you'll find yourself with answer of charm, poise and good taste.

Hairy Situation in Washington, DC

News out of Washington, DC that does not involve Donald Trump's hair.

Apparently, parts of the Washington, DC metro rail line have become so caked with layers of human hair that it presents a fire hazard.

“I was flabbergasted — flabbergasted — at the amount of hair that’s in the Metro,” said Brian Sherlock, a safety specialist for Amalgamated Transit Union.

“Hair literally comes off of people and off of clothing and gets sucked up."

The hair gets sucked up into the tunnel, and collects on insulators that house the electric third rail. The felt-like lining is 1/8 inches thick in some places, and could pose a fire risk by trapping heat.

“The amount of debris is just beyond vulgar to think of,” Sherlock said.

And the Password is....


Poseidon's Underworld has an adorable post filled with screen grabs of lots of glamorously coiffed dames that graced that game show back in those good old mid-century days. 

Here's but one of many you'll find.


I'm especially fond of Joan Fontaine's glorious Haddasah flip.

Movember

It's Movember. Are you growing a moustache?



Grow a moustache this month and do your part to raise awareness for men's health. You can shave it off at the end of the month. Or you can leave it forever and, like Salvador Dali's moustache (above) it may remain intact forever!

Katy Perry's Hair

Katy Perry (born Katheryn Hudson) turns 33 today...



"I'm really strong as Katy Perry and then sometimes I'm not as strong as Katheryn Hudson."

"People like talk about my hair, right? They don't like it or they wish that it was longer. I so badly want to be Katheryn Hudson that I don't even want to look like Katy Perry anymore sometimes."

"That is a little bit of why I cut my hair, because I really want to be my authentic self 100%. It hurts when I don’t feel like I can.”

How to Survive a Nuclear Attack? Prepare Your Hair



The United States government has issued a two-page fact sheet on how to survive a nuclear attack.

One of their suggestions…

Wash your hair with shampoo, or soap and water. Do not use conditioner in your hair because it will bind radioactive material to your hair.
