Ok, who's been slacking off on the job around here?

The haircase needs a touch up!

Bernard of Hollywood

make an appointment today

Attention, Please!

Akim and Gyorgi have asked me to remind all HHoF customers that they reserve the right to refuse any and all services at their own discretion.  As some of you may have heard, there was a regrettable incident in the break room spa yesterday afternoon, and the less said about it the better. They would like to thank Margaret for her prompt calling of 911, and they look forward to resuming their work tomorrow from 6:00 p.m.

Note to staff working reception:  Under no circumstances should you accept future appointments from anyone who identifies himself as "Mr. Preston," "Mr. Trovalta," or "Mr. Barbarino."  We get the cops in here one more time this month and we'll never finish paying for those Benevolent Fund benefit tickets.

Meanwhile in the dryer wing

Margaret is taking orders and serving cocktails.

Where is MJ?

Cookie is concerned that Mistress MJ, aka Vagabond Lady, hasn't returned from her from her whirlwind tour of Lower Scunthorpe.  Did she just say "Fuck Everything" and disappear?

Now in the HHoF giftshop: MERKIN MANIA

With MJ away, we thought it was time for some merkins, lest anyone out there feel as if they were about to go through merkin withdrawal.

We found this old ad online that reads:

"If wearing a bikini is your thing, THE PUBIC HAIR WIG will add sensual pleasure to the on-looker and yourself.  Worn on nude beaches, it's even more exciting!  At last you can shave your privates without anyone knowing.  THE PUBIC HAIR WIG is a real turn-on as it can be worn above the hairy areas or as a cover-up.  Hand made with invisible stick on tape only $9.95.  Send cash, check or money order with hair sample for a perfect match to: MAN HAIR..."

Alas, no complete address. Still, there's no mistaking, this is a manly product.

We also found this for the ladies:

"Botched Brazilian? Misbehaved shave? Unveiled va-jay-jay?"

Kitty Carpet, available online, advertises itself at the "reusable downstairs toupee".  Our sample is shown in the ever popular "straw" coloring.

Ask Margaret in our gift shop about our full line of merkins.  Wednesday's blue-rinse merkins are half-off*!

*The pile is not quite as thickly thatched.

Challenging Client #8: the Perils of Power

I want it long, straight, curly, fuzzy, snaggy, shaggy, ratty, mattyOily, greasy, fleecy, shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxenKnotted, polka dotted, twisted, beaded, braidedPowdered, flowered and confettied,Bangled, tangled, spangled and spaghettied...

Notre chère cliente, the one and only Mme. Chantal Biya, First Lady of Cameroon, is perhaps the only person in history whose crowning glory represents every single aspect of the subject covered in the title song from Hair.  
Eventually, we had to give her up; the long weekly flights to Yaoundé for her maintenance wash and sets were bad enough, but we simply lost patience with having to explain to her that there just weren't any more techniques we hadn't already tried.  Hers is in fact the world's only straightened, stripped, dyed, permed, ironed, layored, razored, texturized, up, down, marceled, and ruthlessly curled 'do in history.  But she always wants more...

Why not try a new look for the new year?

...or not.

Move Over, Ladies!

New Year, new 'dos, carissimi!  It's 2013 - why shouldn't beehive glamour be available to boys as well as girls?  I admit that I'm less sold on the idea of matted fur T-shirts, but why quibble?
