Sixth-Grade Stylist

An eleven-year-old boy is making waves in his basement hair salon in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Vincent's Hair Art already has 25 clients.


Vince Weishaus has been interested in hair since he was a toddler. His mother said, “He would flip the hair of the dolls his older sister had back and forth, and he would take them wherever he went and brush their hair.” 

His dream is to become a celebrity hair stylist. “The only thing I don’t know is whether I’ll go to LA or New York.”

More about Vince here.

The best of intentions gone horribly awry


The time, the late 1960s.

The Toronado by Oldsmobile.

The customization by George Barris.

The caftan and shoes reportedly bought at I. Magnum.

The tropical flower, by Pier One, or Patty's Plastic Posies.

The female model? Well, we're not sure. 

Women have been posed alongside cars since the beginning of time. 

Then came the 1960s and they posed on the cars, with less and less on, and more and more cleavage.

That's why this is such a confusing photo.

The car alone is plenty to look at.

She seems like a bit out of it, from the way she was posed. 

She's isn't alluring, and that party tent she has on is really blocking the car.

Maybe she posed like that and they moved the car.

More likely, they had to have her slouch down. 

Yeah, let's pretend that's what was going on.

Yeah, let's just pretend.

Raquel Welch and her big special Special



It's 1970 and Raquel Welch is going to have a huge special on TV.  Everything about Raquel was bigger than life, and for this special, even her hair was a spectacular spectacular of backcombing, curls and cascades of rich auburn cascades.  You are looking at her hair, right?

And to sponsor this extravaganza, Motorola stepped up to hawk Raquel and its Quasar II TV - the televisions that feature "Works in a Drawer".  Because in 1970, if the TV conked out - and they did - then your TV repairman could access the guts of the set without befouling your raked shag carpets.

I mean, you can't miss Bob Hope and Raquel trading jokes, can you?

“He (Oribe Canales) was Cuban and I was a little Puerto Rican girl. He’d play with my hair and I’d dance around. I’d feel like a million bucks.”

Take Pride in the Height of your Hair


Pictured above is Eunice Christine Tiroff, a familiar face and head of hair around Lubbock, Texas.  Mrs. Tiroff manned the tea cart at Furr's Cafeteria and featured in a 1992 Texas Monthly article entitled "Hooray for Big Hair"  for her trademark teased tresses. 

Better known as "Chris," she passed in 2012, her obituary can be reached through the following link: Eunice Tiroff

We here at the Hair Hall of Fame salute this woman and her dedication to her work and to style which followed no trend but her own.  As such, she is hereby bestowed with the honor of Hair Hall of Fame Salon of Honor, our second highest accolade.

For those of you who are curious what the highest honor is, it in the HHoF Court of Honor, which Norma Desmond oversees.  How exclusive is this Court of Honor, reserved for the hairstylists that create only the best?  It is so exclusive that Norma has yet to admit anyone, save his own name.

Nevertheless: Eunice Christine Tiroff: Salute!

Stylists are Satin's Minions? Oh. Bitch. PLEASE!



Cookie is OFFENDED.

The Pope, Francis, has pissed Cookie off.

He has done NOTHING to clear the putrid stench of child abusers from the Catholic Church, but today, the Pope did this, per NBC News:

"The pope exhorted some 230 Italian Catholic hair cutters, stylists and beauticians - on a group pilgrimage to Rome - to "avoid falling into the temptation of gossip that is easily associated with your work".

Francis, look, you have  Benedict who did this crap in the years before he retired.  Cut the crap.

Leave the stylists at Stella's Smart Set and Style do what they need to do to make the world a bit more curly, and beautiful, and you do something about those Goddamned child molesters and Archbishops who are fighting reform.

Our Lady of this earth has a right to be beautiful and entertained while she is pampered.
