Chantal Biya

Because she belongs here. Card carrying member of the Hair Hall of Fame, Chantal Biya, the Empress of Cameroon.

Beauty Shop Beat, Redux

To quote MJ, OK Bitches, let's try this one again.

After beating up on a bunch of ladies in some comments, I thought I'd give you all a second chance at some grace.  So, from Baikenage Overkill's opus blog on forgotten records, Schadenfreudian Therapy (which should be something that you review on a daily basis) I give you this review from June of 2009:

"The cover is a classic, but the highlight of this album is the upbeat "Oh By Jingo" with its flawless harmonies and swinging backup by Bob Bain and the Players.

"The Clark Sisters began their career performing as the Sentimentalists (snappy name) with the Tommy Dorsey Band. Their early roots were in barbershop, but despite the choice of some quintessential barbershop numbers on this album (Down By the Old Mill Stream, Sweet Adeline) there is (thankfully) little in common with typical mustachio'd quartets. Yeah, you want to download this one. "

No go to the site at the link listed below and you can download it for FREE and enjoy it - that is an order, and that is all.

Big Red

Arleen Whelan
The thrice married, thrice divorced starlet appeared in 24 films.  Her big year was '39, with appearances in "Young Mr. Lincoln" and "Sabotage".  After that it went from 'downhill', to 'not so much'.  But she gave hair!

Mothers of your host hairdressers

Mother Cookie

In her day, Ask The Cool Cookie's mother was client of Joey & Tano in Shaker Heights.  She was also patron of Salon Alberto. 

Now 85, she remembers as a young girl growing up on a rural farm in Ohio and how she would use a small glass of water to wet her finger tips to set her hair before bed (which she shared with her younger sister - a line drawn on the sheet in pencil deliniated the center of the bed that neither was allow to cross) and if this was done in the winter - and the farm house had no electricity in the days before the REA, and thus no central heat - the water in the glass would freeze solid over night.
