I am looking to re style my hair. I would like to go to someone who can recommend styles that suit me. I have some idea of what I want but could use some advice. Currently I go to supercuts. As you probably know they are not the best for advise. I am willing to pay significantly over supercut prices to get this advice. Just dont know who to go to.
Any recommendations? posted by r2d2 at 7:42 PM - 4 answers
I have read posts about different epilators and have heard good reviews about Braun, but it seemed like lower to mid price epilators were recommended. I am new to epilating and I want to use it for legs, under-arms and chin. I am looking for the best epilator that is easy, efficient and has high techiness that makes general use of it easy such as wet/dry. What are some of the good epilators to use and does higher cost equate to it being better? [more inside]posted by Jaelma24 at 2:39 PM - 11 answers
So a while ago I bought this corset for the lady
and we both enjoy it. I'm fairly certain it's a knock-off of a more expensive design considering the price and style. I'm looking for any similar designs since I like the buckles. Similar price range would be nice, but I know that quality corsets get expensive. posted by gzimmer at 5:04 PM - 7 answers
I can't walk ten paces without most of my skirts rotating at least a quarter turn. (Clockwise, if it matters.) My waist is pretty small compared to my hips, and I'm buying sizes that are (otherwise) appropriate. Annoyingly, they never seem to rotate in the store so I can't weed out the duds.
The suggestions I've seen (gripper waistband, tucking my shirts in, using safety pins), don't work because I generally don't wear tucked-in shirts or nylons. Snugtex wouldn't have much to, ah, snug to, besides bare skin.
Suggestions, please? posted by 2soxy4mypuppet at 4:50 PM - 10 answers
I read this New York Times
article about clothing that is ethically produced and looked up the company they feature, Everlane, and really loved the look of their stuff. It's conservative enough for an office, but still fashionable and hip, and not horribly expensive ($15 for women's t-shirts). The trouble is, they don't offer very much variety. Basically, I'm looking for more things along the lines of these
previous MeFi questions
but for women's clothes available for purchase in the U.S. [more inside]posted by forkisbetter at 11:05 AM - 8 answers

I am looking for someone in the UK to restore/repair a leather writing case. Any recommendations? It needs relining (and therefore reconstructing essentially). It used to belong to my Grandmother and I would love to get it restored to it's former glory. posted by drill_here_fore_seismics at 3:11 PM - 0 answers
I need a new pair of women's winter boots. (Upcoming Australian winter: i.e., quite temperate. Fur lining is definitely not required.) I like brown or tan leather uppers (not black, no synthetics), a low heel (I'm nearly 6'), and reasonable quality construction. I'm prepared to pay up to $250. However, my ankles are giving me pause.

I have super thick, wavy/curly long hair and I am not willing to spend a bunch of time everyday trying to wrangle my hair into submission. How can I get nice, straight hair that I can wear down in public and it not look like I stuck my finger in an electrical socket or I am growing dog ears? Details below!

My two-and-a-half-year-old daughter has inherited my crazy-thick, curly, totally uncooperative hair. She is a spitfire personality who despises having her head washed/combed/messed with, and I want to somehow minimize the trauma of keeping her looking civilized (which, at the moment, she rarely does). Help! [more inside]posted by celtalitha at 2:13 PM - 53 answers
I'm a Former Fat Kid who's had to exercise religiously to stay in some kind of (refrigerator-like) shape as an adult. My distribution of fat and muscle means that I have huuuuge
glutes and quads. Pants are therefore my enemy. Help me find a fit! [36yo/M] [more inside]posted by mykescipark at 9:56 AM - 7 answers
Back in 2009 my wife and I found this store
located in the shopping arcades surrounding the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostella. My wife loved loved loved the baby clothes, especially the baptismal gowns. I'd love to find a place with items like this in the US, preferably NYC. [more inside]posted by JPD at 7:18 AM - 10 answers
Sewists/sewers/seamstresses of askme, I need your help. I bought a beautiful 1930s lace wedding dress yesterday, but need to have the back altered because though the dress fits at the waist, the zipper won't close in the bust. Other non-sewer advice welcome in the style department. [more inside]posted by dysh at 6:01 PM - 17 answers
Yes, another "Help me find this thing to buy." I need sunscreen. I recently found another ask (linked below the fold) but the results are exactly what I DON'T like. More details inside. [more inside]posted by Crystalinne at 4:04 PM - 25 answers
