Hair today, gone tomorrow

We wash it, dye it, shave it, curl it, iron it, mousse it, clean it out of the sink, tousle it, spike it, banana clip it, lose it, relax it, barrette it, berate it, comb it, bleach it, deep condition it, spray it, cut it, add extensions to it, braid it, crimp it, tease it, gel it, brush it, love it and hate it.  People in the United States spend $20,641,000,000 per year on it. So what am I talking about?  No, not pants!  Hair!


Here are some great books featuring this versatile asset:

it (almost) always grows back

Aah, the heat and humidity of summer are doing a number on my hair these days.  It seems to grow faster, and get curlier in the strangest ways.  That must be why I just recently came across a blog for the hair obsessed.  Isn’t the Internet great?

Well, yes, but the library’s better.  Did you know that we can help you decide on your next hair style?  Well, perhaps not exactly help you decide, but, as always, provide you with the resources you need to make your decision.  We subscribe to several hair style magazines:

Plus, we have all sorts of books that can provide a wonderful array of options to choose from:

On top of all of that, you can make an interest in hair into a multimedia experience!  There’s always the musical, or you can read a Bubbles mystery, about a hairdresser-turned-investigative-journalist.   

So next time you’re in the market for a new hair style, stop by!  You’ll get an expert opinion (on how to find what you’re looking for).
