Perm: Digital VS. Straight

I have straight hair with a natural wave that curls or straightens very well. However, I am super lazy when it comes to doing my hair in the morning so am looking for a wash and go hairstyle. Thinking about getting either a digital perm or a Japanese straight perm. Any recommendations for one or the other? [more inside]

How to get rid of my beard...for good?

Sick and tired of shaving! I'm going to get electrolysis. Here's the catch: I'm a guy. Anyone out there undergone the process before want to tell me what it's like? I imagine it's quite different for men rather than women as our beards are quite a bit coarser. [more inside]

Help my daughter get her sparkle back!

My four-year-old daughter got a haircut the other day, and as part of the haircut, the stylist sprinkled what looked like glittery talcum powder on her face and hair. She loved having "sparkles" on her face and hair all day and was sad when she had to wash them off in the bath. I'm not sure how this stuff works, but is there anything affordable and low-maintenance that I can get for her to help get her sparkle back?

Glowing light bulbs in my hair: help me wear this piece of art

Help me create a functional light bulb crown! I saw this amazing sculpture at an art walk this week, and I'd like to make it into something wearable for Burning Man. My guess is that I can start by buying this type of bulb, but I need some advice beyond that. Wiring type and strategy? Batteries? How about affixing them to my head? I have long hair and could do something creative with little buns - I want to secure everything in a minimalist way (no baseball hats) so that the focus is on the lights.

Hard H2O Hair Hell

I've just moved to the country from New York City, and although many things about living here are easier, the water is really really hard. My skin is fine but my hair looks just awful--where it used to be big and bouncy, it's now flat, dull and frizzy. I tried adding baking soda to my shampoo (per thriftyfun.com) and that helped for about a day but now things are back to terrible. I just came from getting a haircut--which I'd hoped would help--but it's still awful. Help me. Please. Products, techniques, anything?

where to get a great hair cut in/near SF?

Where to get a great hair cut in or near SF? I have very long hair and I've decided I'd like to chop it to a bob, but I want to go to someone who can do a great job and give me advice on what will look good since I've never had this haircut before. Any recommendations for amazing salons or stylists in the SF Bay Area (SF, east bay, wherever...) or up north in Santa Rosa/Petaluma/Sebastapol areas? I'm not made of money, so salons at all price points appreciated!

Color after henna

So, I used Lush henna on my hair about a year ago. It has taken that long for it to grow out and now only my ends remain the henna-d color. My roots are beginning to gray so I have a box of semi-permanent hair color I'd like to use but I'm afraid of what will happen to then ends if I use it. Is it safe?

How to get smooth hair

I have coarse shoulder length hair that I blow dry and use med heat of straight iron to smooth, but it especially gets frizzy in humid weather. I use a straight iron and hair products to smooth it. When I go to beauty shop the beautician uses a 400 degree straight iron that gets it super smooth and straight, however I don't want to damage my hair using high temp on it daily. I have used these products on my hair to try to achieve smoothness: John Frieda Luminouscolor Glaze Clear Shine, Matrix Sleek Look Blow Down Extreme Creme, Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, Aveeno Nourish & Style Soft Hold Gel Creme. Would a pomade help achieve this? I really like Heidi Klum's current hair style, and my could look like it if I could get it as smooth as she gets hers

Winter hair woes.

I have long, fine, mostly straight (female) hair that becomes dry, limp and majorly staticky during East Coast winters. My normal hair routine involves moisturizing shampoo, conditioner at the tips, volumizing mousse when my hair is wet, and blow drying upside down with a bristly brush. Sometimes I use some light hairspray to keep it in place. Initially it looks and feels great. But by the end of the day, it is totally dead and full of static. I keep a dryer sheet in my bag to smooth out the static throughout the day but this isn't much of a long-term solution and it doesn't fix the limpness. Advise me please? Any product suggestions? Thanks in advance!
