Beauty Salon in Webb's One Stop Drug Store


[via]

Webb's City was a one-stop department store of sorts that was located in St. Petersburg, Florida and was touted as "the World's Most Unusual Drug Store".

Webb's had a gift shop, hardware store, meat market, beauty salon, travel agency, clothing departments, cafeteria, multiple coffee shops and soda fountains and of course, a drugstore.

Webb's City is credited as having implemented a new idea in the checkout aisle, the express lane, 10 items or less.

Bug in your hair?


Really?  Really. 

Hair Mugs

Hungarian designer Krisztina Czika created mugs made from human hair embedded in wax.

She used different colours of cosmetic wax – which is typically used for removing leg, underarm and bikini hair – to make the collection, which she named This Is Not A Värdera, after the ubiquitous IKEA cups.

Perhaps we here at The Hair Hall of Fame Salon could use the day's sweepings to create our own hair mugs and sell them at our Gift Shop.

Cuchi-Cuchi!

Before Shakira shimmied, there was Charo.



Charo celebrates her birthday on March 13th. The year of her birth is unknown but she attested in a court hearing that it’s 1951. Some say her birth year may be as much as nine years earlier.

She was born María del Rosario Mercedes Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza (say it fast) in Spain.

In 1966, she married the MUCH older “Rhumba King,” Xavier Cugat who brought her to the United States.

Internationally, Charo is considered to be one of the world’s greatest flamenco guitarists, having studied with virtuoso Andrés Segovia.



But Americans know her best as the voluptuous, hip-shaking, big-blonde-wig-wearing “cuchi-cuchi girl.” That’s fine with Charo who says, “That’s okay because cuchi-cuchi has taken me all the way to the bank.”



Proving she’s not just a pretty face, here’s Charo performing Malagueña in 1977…

Who Has the Coolest Hair?

Who has the coolest hair?



Contestants from around the world come to the Takhini Hot Pools in the Yukon, Canada each winter to find out.

The purpose of The International Hair Freezing Contest is to create the most creative frozen hairdos possible; you soak in the hot springs and allow the steam to accumulate on your head while the cold air freezes your hair. Like this...




And this...




And this...



And this...



If you can't wait to board a plane for the contest, the temperature in the Yukon is expected to reach a high today of 14°Fahrenheit or -10°Celsius. Either way, it's cold enough to freeze your hair. Although be advised: best hair-freezing results are at -4° Fahrenheit or -20° Celsius ...or colder. If it's warmer than that it may take longer for desired frozen results.

Facts, Not "Alternate Facts" About Dandruff


[via]

From the 1930s to the 1950s, Listerine® mouthwash was marketed as a cure for dandruff.

Listerine® contains menthol, thymol, eucalyptol and methyl salicylate. These ingredients have antiseptic and anti-fungal properties, both of which are good for keeping the scalp in great condition. Methyl salicylate also has an anti-inflammatory, cooling action wherever it's applied - perfect for soothing an itchy scalp.

Just breath and think of Robert Conrad



Stressed with all the POTUS-e BS?

Then join me in thinking about something nicer, someone the complete opposite of the fat assed Cheeto taking the oath of office tomorrow.

Think about Robert Conrad, instead.  And his chest hair.

Think about his smile.  His youth.  His body.  His chest.

Think about his skin, delicious to touch.  To run your hands over.  Think about his chest hair, after all this is a blog about hair, think about his chest hair.

Think about his pecs, his butt and his dimples, all of those dimples.

Now imagine him in his youth, at your beck and call and only for you.

Think about him, tied up, like on his TV show, Wild Wild West.

Just think about that.

There now, better?


Big Hair, Big...Heart

Happy 71st birthday, Dolly Parton.
