Hello everyone! I am early in my transition as a trans woman and am working on growing my hair out. In the meantime I am interested in figuring out some way to do my hair that looks cute and feminine and doesn't require a ton of maintenance. [more inside]

Looking for a history-of-fashion art book, please!

I'm looking for a nice art book covering fashion and (particularly) hairstyles, both men's and women's, in America in the 30s, 40s, and/or 50s. This is a gift for a hairstylist, so pictures are key - the text is much less important. Price range up to $200. Thanks!

I just want to look at pictures of other people's hair

Seagull Salon in NYC has a tumblr on which they post photos of some (most? all?) of the clients who come through the salon to get their hair cut, dyed, or styled. This seems like such an obviously great idea - not only has it taught me about lots of new hair trends, it gives me a chance to see what these super creative styles look like on real people. If I were ever in the market for a NYC haircut, I'd feel confident going to Seagull. But for some reason, I've had trouble finding other blogs like this: my results are clogged by hair salon websites and individually run blogs full of tutorials and photos of celebrities and such. Do you know of any other salons that do this? They don't have to be the same genre of hairstyle as Seagull; I just want to look at lots of un-retouched photos of other people's haircuts.

Cue makeover montage

I am just terrible at being a lady. All the usual Beauty Stuff, stuff that it seems like everyone else was either born knowing or learned as teenagers, is a giant mystery to me. I need, like, a checklist or something for being a presentable-looking grownup. [more inside]

How to wear my lack of hair?

I'm in my mid-twenties, and have a substantially thinning crescent shaped area on the crown of my head, though my hairline at the front is fine. What should I do with my hair? Is a #1 buzz cut the only way forward? [more inside]

Girlfriend wants me to get a shaggy hairstyle, should I?

My other half really wants me to get the modern shag hair style like Brad Pitt's. I have long hair at the moment and I'm not too keen on the change... I think it's too feminine (pink is not the new black) and outdated. Am i being too stubborn?

Recommend a miracle-worker hairstylist for men in seattle/eastside!

Seattle or Eastside: Recommendations for a hairdresser specializing in trendy cuts for men, despite the formidable obstacle of seriously thinning hair. This may be my last chance to look young, hot, and fashionable, before my hair declares to the world the world "Going on middle aged and should know better by now!". I have long hippy hair that has never been fashionable. It's disappearing and I'd like a trendy cut at least once before it's too late. It may already be too late. I fear a stylist is going to misjudge how thin it is (the length disguises this) and botch it. So: Who is a miracle-worker hairstylist who can give guys makeovers to hotness?

Makeover MACHIIIIIIINE

Can any Baltimoreans recommend a good salon? Most of my life my hair has been long to very long, cut straight across, bangs, kept in a braid or in a hair clip. I'd like to try a new hairstyle, with no preferences other than not-ugly. I would like a place where I walk in, the stylist looks at me, says "OK, this will look awesome, we are doing this!", does that thing, and I walk out happy.
