George Fitchett, a lifelong beautician whose motto was "I'm a beautician, not a magician," died last Friday. He was 60 and lived in West Oak Lane. He also was a part-time bartender. But it was in Alice's Beauty Salon, at 16th Street and Nedro Avenue, where Fitchett earned his reputation as a "happy-go-lucky" person. It was where he also got his nickname, "George the Beautician. " A veteran of the Korean War, Fitchett served four years in the Air Force. After his discharge in 1957, he attended a beauty culture school on the GI Bill.

Take it from someone who once Scotch-taped her hair to her face overnight in an effort to straighten it: Trendy hairdos almost always take some doing. Take it from this voice of experience (lots and lots of experience . . . the tape job, circa 1973, was my effort to look like Laurie Partridge!): Now is an excellent time to be a teen-ager with "problem" hair. What's so great about this year, especially as opposed to last year (and, of course, 1973), is that virtually anything goes.

BLACK FOLKS, we've got a problem! "Dere is a whole heap a colored people who ain't got da news, SLAVERY IS OVER!" We are under siege by the hair police, the thought police, "da speech poleese," and mercy Lord, the how-to-be-black police, by Negroes who think it is their right to tell other Africans how to wear their hair etc., while important issues are ignored. Martin Luther King longed for the day when we would be "judged by the content of our character. " But it ain't just white folks doing the judging.

Primp, crimp, spray, clip, push, pull and pray. Women especially color the gray, hide the thin spots and spend oodles of money to treat damaged hair. But few cosmetic problems are as heart-wrenching as a female balding head.

When the 25-year beauty veteran began laying out the floor plans for her new hair and body care shop, La Difference, on Market Street in West Chester, she including a special room.

For years - no, for centuries - man has worried about having peace in his time, food on his table, clothes on his back and love in his heart. Mostly, though, he has worried about hair on his head. He need worry no longer. First, there was the wet look. Then, the dry look. Later, the mousse look. Now, many a troubled man may rejoice. Finally, there is the thin look. Consider the heroes of our time, the men that men admire and women adore.

In the current economy, people are finding all kinds of ways to save a few bucks - including doing without trips to the barber. That's nothing new for me, though. I've been cutting my husband's hair for at least 12 years - since shortly after Ken and I were married. I had never cut hair before. Well, I did try trimming my friend's bangs once in middle school, but that went horribly awry. I lopped off too much of her bangs. (Despite that, we're still good friends.) After that, I never cut hair again until Ken. I'm not licensed.

YOUR ONLINE poll the other day, asking "Do you think Sarah Palin will wear her hair up or down for the big speech tonight?" is, in a word, disgraceful. I'm sure that had Mitt Romney or Tim Pawlenty been named the vice presidential nominee, you would have been worried about the color of his tie, rather than the actual substance of the speech he was planning to present, right?

A lot of hair has been shorn in the 20 years since the rock musical Hair glorified the spirit of the hippie movement. So, in light of the Temple University revival of this tuneful paean to the flower children of the '60s, it is pertinent to ask: Is Hair still pertinent? As social statement it is not, and that is probably a good thing. The Vietnam War and the rancorous dialogue between young and old that spawned both the youth rebellion and the musical are in the past, and no one who lived through those distressing times would want to see them return.

An expert hired by accused murderer Jay C. Smith said yesterday that FBI tests on a hair and rug fibers said to link the former Upper Merion High School principal to slain teacher Susan Reinert are "inconclusive and improper. " Samuel J. Golub, a hair and fiber analyst for 30 years, challenged some of the prosecution's most damaging evidence against Smith. He claimed a single brown hair found in the basement of Smith's King of Prussia home - said by an FBI agent to be "consistent" with Reinert's hair - actually was more likely Smith's hair.

I've always hated the phrase dumb blonde . I hate it even more when it applies to me. I recently got my hair highlighted, and one little section got overbleached. It's toward the back, but it shows when I pull my hair over my shoulder, which I do often. And I can't stop thinking about it. I know it's dumb, I know. I feel dumb writing this now. The modern woman faces many real challenges. We also face some made-up ones. Obsessing over your hair is the latter. Sometimes, as women, we're prisoners of our own making.

Elizabeth Wellington chatted with  Syreeta Scott , owner of  Duafe Hair Salon , on this topic .  Scroll to the bottom of this article to see their conversation. When I was a little girl, I loved to run fast and splash big. But these quintessential kid activities were frowned upon. That's because I was a child of the hot comb. Every other Friday, my mom washed my hair and braided it into sections to let it dry. The next morning, she pressed it straight so it would be appropriate for church and school.

Fierce blowouts - straightened hair that has been hot-curled into gentle waves - are the reason women hightail it to the salon once, sometimes twice, a week, and especially before special occasions. But what if you could get the same look and forfeit those salon trips for up to three months? The trendlet Semipermanent-curl processes are the latest hair phenom that gives women the just-left-the-salon look every day. Think of it as a Keratin treatment, but instead of bone-straight hair, ends are curled into a bouncing and behaving style.

Back on Feb. 29, the retrial of Anthony Wright for the 1991 rape and murder of a 77-year-old Nicetown woman was postponed when police reexamined the clothes believed to have been worn by the woman and discovered two hairs apparently overlooked during the investigation 25 years ago. Now it seems the source of those hairs will remain a mystery. At a pretrial hearing Monday, it was announced that DNA tests excluded the victim, Louise Talley, and dead inmate Ronnie Byrd as the source of the newly discovered hairs.

Guess who's coming over this week. The USA. OK, I'm exaggerating. But only a little. Let me explain. About a month or so ago, I found out that Francesca and I were scheduled to be on Good Morning America , which is very big news. We were booked to talk about our funny series that's coming out next month, as well as my thrillers and novels. We were superexcited because the show has a bazillion viewers, and obviously, this would expose our books to a national audience.

No musician who gained renown in the late '80s playing "glam" or "hair metal" loves those descriptions. The skilled musicians and singers who made heavy metal with contagious pop hooks (and big hair, be honest) find it as off-putting as "neo-soul" is to R&B players of the 2000s. "Not a fan of the term, but considering what most bands looked like at the time, I totally understand," Mark Evans says with a laugh. "There were a lot bands not taken seriously because of how they looked vs. their level of talent.

We like a man's shoes the same color as his belt. And when a lady's clutch is the same hue as her pumps, we know she's willing to go the extra style mile. But should our tresses ever match our trousers? The trendlet According to today's chicest chicas, yes. The deft application of vibrantly blended blue hues is giving everyday blonds and brunettes locks that truly, really, and somewhat unbelievably match their jeans to a T. Look around, and you will see hair that's indigo, acid wash, and bluish gray - and that's just a few options from the denim color wheel.
