A License to Shampoo

People in Tennessee who want to shampoo hair in professional salons must receive hundreds of hours of training and fork out thousands of dollars before they're legally allowed to do so.

Those who wash hair without a license face up to six months in prison and a $500 criminal fine, or a $1,000 civil penalty.

More here.

Bobby Rydell

Bobby Rydell turns 74 today.


Born Robert Louis Ridarelli on April 26, 1942, Bobby Rydell was a teen idol of the early 1960s, approved of by mothers for his "boy next door" image.

Here's Bobby in 1960, singing "Volare" on a TV show, also approved of by mothers: The Perry Como Show....

We dare not Google to see if his pompadour has stood the test of time.

Kim Berry: Prince’s Hairstylist

Kim Berry, or “Kim B” as she is known in the industry, was Prince’s hairstylist for 25 years, and her work has been seen all over the world in commercials, print, films, television and music videos.

“I ended up travelling the world with the artist for 25 years … he became my brother and my friend.”

"He wore more hairstyles then most women would ever try," she said. "He wore it all the way across the spectrum from pony tails all the way to wraps from cuts to finger waves so he didn't have no boundaries."

Kim Berry had just done Prince’s hair at this salon in Rome when he shot photos of the paparazzi shooting photos of him.[photo via]

Kim Berry talks about the “offstage” Prince here.

Ian Carmichael: Personal Hairdresser to Her Majesty

Today we celebrate the 90th birthday of Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other realms and territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.

We salute her hairdresser, Scotsman Ian Carmichael who tends the Queen’s hair twice a week.

Carmichael was issued a Royal Warrant to emphasize how valuable he is to the royal coiffure.

‘Of all my clients, the Queen is by far my favourite, she has wonderful hair.’

However, he remains discreet about the monarch, refusing to gossip.

‘I have done her hair for a very long time and I remain loyal to her,’ he said.

Seafood Platter

Hair full of seashells, shot by Henry Clarke in 1969.

“This is by Alexandre, the great hairdresser, who was the most amazing man. This was in Sardinia. This is something you could never do today either, because you would be arrested. We did all the garbage cans of all the restaurants at five o’clock in the morning, where everybody had eaten the night before — all the mussels and the seafood and everything like that, and he put them on my head!” -- Marisa Berenson.
