Men's hair product and technique for thick, mostly-straight hair

I got kind of a funny haircut (not on purpose). It's like the mid-'90s "butt cut" but extra long in the front. I have no idea what the stylist was thinking, as she did the two things I specifically told her not to do: no butt cut, as I have a serious cowlick that accentuates that look, and nothing that requires product, as my hair is very thick and everything I have tried is absorbed and useless within two hours. So what can I do? Technique and product recommendations? [more inside]

What mousse should I use for my hair?

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]

Who is the Lisa Eldridge of hair?

I am obsessed with Lisa Eldridge's fantastic makeup videos - she's incredibly friendly, her videos are beautifully shot, and she talks to you about why you should or shouldn't do things as well as how. Do you know of someone similar who focuses on just hair? [more inside]

What do I do with these out of control sideburn things?

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]

Replacement for "Pureology Texture Twist" - now discontinued?

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!)
