I have thin, curly, short hair. I used to use Redken Fresh Curls Spring Mousse and it worked beautifully on me. It wasn't sticky, it didn't crunch up my hair and I was able to apply it, let my hair air-dry, and my curls would form, essentially frizz-free (in Florida's humid environment!) and look great. But now, Redken has discontinued that mousse. What can I replace it with? [more inside]

If I was a guy, I would call them sideburns and shave them into submission. But I'm a 50 year old woman and they have turned into horrible wiry gray kinky bushy things and I don't know what to do. Stylists freak if I suggest shaving them. So, help. [more inside]

For years I've been using Pureology Texture Twist. Product description here.
Of course since I like it, it's now discontinued.
I haven't tried other products, I liked the way this allowed me to style my hair (messy/spikey). I liked that it was more on the "natural end" of things, didn't have petroleum/mineral oil, and was amazingly balanced at "staying" and being easy to wash out.
Any recommendations for a replacement? I found this from a hair stylist I used to see who was always trying new stuff. My current one only recommends things she sells (surprise!)

I have fine, long, wispy, ultra-ultra-straight hair and according to the hairdresser, lots of it. I would like to occasionally have some loose, simple curls or waves, for going out, weddings and other dressy events. [more inside]

I do okay when it comes to doing my makeup and hair, but I pale in comparison to the girls at my university who are able to come to class fully dolled up. What am I missing? [more inside]

I have been watching season 4 of The Office, and I really love Pam Beesly's hairstyle (shoulder length, and curly). I have a tough time styling my hair, and would love tips on how to do something similar to Pam's hairstyle. [more inside]

Which is the correct spelling of these words:
