The lesson Thursday at the Spectrum was about the difference between lip service and true homage. The female vocal group En Vogue devoted a chunk of its opening set to important female vocalists - Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, the Emotions. Charging through eight-bar slivers of famous hits, the self-proclaimed "funky divas" played the role of cover band: There was little soul, no hint of exactly how the legends influenced this still-rising, smooth-harmonizing quartet.

Guitarist John Fahey - drifter, recluse, some say sorcerer - does for the blues, folk and other American primitive idioms what Marcel Duchamp did for nudes descending staircases. His celebrated playing illustrates the concentric circles of motion and being. Though Fahey has been hailed as one of the great finger-style guitarists of the 20th century, over his itinerant 40 years of music-making he has been riddled with the bite marks of as many mythical hellhounds on his trail as any Delta bluesman.

David Tinsch's ultimate root-beer float takes about 30 minutes to make - and lasts indefinitely. "Food should be styled not to deceive or to make it look like something you can't achieve," he intones, gently coaxing more texture into a scoop of "ice cream" with a spoon. "Most people want something natural and real, but the reality is it's got to stay up for a photo as long as possible. " Which is why his "ice cream" is actually a concoction of powdered sugar, margarine and Karo syrup which, despite looking all creamy and yummy, will, in fact, get as hard as a brick, left to its own devices.

When it's good, it's bliss. He runs his fingers through your hair. She leans close and says you look terrific. He knows what you crave. She senses what you need. Through thick and thinning, a healthy hairdresser-client relationship can be as tight as an expensive weave. From the dreamy up-do that made you look like a princess at the prom to the no-nonsense workplace bob, it can be a long-term partnership fueled by true devotion. Deep-conditioner love. But then the day comes when the stylist of your dreams keeps you waiting at the sink, collar splashed, split ends dripping as he applies an extra poof to another customer's shag.

A little more than a week after the holiday hoopla ended, Maria Edelstein was still pooped. But she wanted to do something special for husband Jay's birthday. So Edelstein, 53, downloaded the ManeStreem app on her iPhone. And in much the same way she would hail an Uber cab, she ordered a 90-minute massage for him. Within the hour, a masseuse ($150 including tip) and a stylist - after all, a lady can always use a blowout - arrived at her Voorhees home. The stylist was comped because Edelstein was a first-time user.

In the days leading up to their November arrest, Philadelphia's "Bonnie and Clyde" got bold, sloppy and desparate. Now the stylist that made Jocelyn S. Kirsch's tresses sing has teamed up with her employer, Giovanni & Pileggi LLC., to file the first lawsuit against Kirsch, 22, and Edward K. Anderton, 25, the high-livin' couple who allegedly fleeced at least 16 victims of nearly $120,000 during a year's time. Jennifer Bisicchia, 25, and the salon are seeking repayment plus interest, late fees and attorney's fees for the $2,500 in famed hair extensions and gratuity, according to a civil lawsuit filed in Common Pleas Court on Thursday by attorney Arthur D. Goldman.

Sue Schillings was a stylist for the Freestyle Salon for the last seven years. During that time, the 27-year-old Levittown woman built up quite a clientele. And when she quit to go to another salon just two blocks away on Aug. 26, she took the records of all of her customers with her. They included hair-color formulas and appointments. Freestyle owner Ron Vittoriano complained to police. An investigation was begun, and on Friday police showed up at the i Hair Salon, where Schillings now works, and arrested her on charges of theft and receiving stolen property.

Take a look at most of the hairstyles that make it onto the Fashion Week runways and you might wonder, what's up with the hair? Why is it so messy and mussy? Do they just throw it together? It turns out a lot of time, energy and thought go into creating those birds' nests. Yesterday, Collingswood hairstylist Kevin Gatto spent hours backstage - along with his cousin, television personality and celebrity stylist David Evangelista, and an army of assistants - creating just the perfect bulky ponytail.

Three models stare quietly into a mirror at a suite in the Carlyle Hotel. In two hours, they will be among 25 to walk the runway in couture designer B. Michael's flamboyant gowns. Behind each model work two even quieter stylists. One separates shoulder-length straight hair into three-inch sections, while the other teases the hair with a rattail comb to build volume. Before the stylists twirl each woman's hair into a cross between a chignon and French twist, Frank Rizzieri scurries over.

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.

DEAR ABBY: I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl three months ago. I had breast-fed my 15-year-old, so it was natural for me to do the same with my new daughter. The problem is my husband, "Jerry," does not support me breast-feeding in public. I'm somewhat large-chested, so I always cover up for fear of offending strangers. The last time we went shopping and the baby got hungry, when I attempted to feed her in a dressing room, Jerry got so upset he stormed out of the store and took the baby bag and stroller with him. I had a receiving blanket tucked into my tank top and had covered my breast so no one would see anything.

Hello there Jason was ushering at his Germantown church, as he did Sunday after Sunday. But on this particular Sunday in summer 2005, in walked a man with a gorgeous Philadelphia-style beard and a bit of swag. "I kept staring at him the entire time, trying to get his attention, and he would just not give me anything back," Jason said. Two weeks later, Jason was in a telephone chat room for singles and phone-met a very interesting man named Anthony. They got along so well Jason invited him to his place near the Temple campus.

ERNESTINE McCASKILL fancied herself something of a card shark. Pinochle was her game, and she was good at ignoring distractions to pursue her mastery of the cards, including the apparent efforts of her son-in-law, Ronald Nixon, to throw her off her game. Ronald talked incessantly to disrupt her concentration, her family said, but she would say to the other players, "Aw, just let what he's saying roll off your back. " "She could make you laugh while playing any type of game," her family said.

The majority of us spend a lot of time (and money) to get rid of gray with high-powered weapons such as the get-it-golden double process and make-it-brunette balayage. But the winds of change are coloring the most stylish of women's tresses silver. The trendlet Yes, it's true. Women are paying stylists top dollar to have their inverted, shoulder-length bobs and short spikey-dos colored a perfect gray to silver ombre. (Much like bleach blondes, the first step is to strip the pigment, and then stylists apply a permanent gray dye. You can add a semipermanent rinse for a pastel effect.)

Rihanna. Kate Hudson. Michelle Obama. All of these women have had their hair styled at one of the three Paul Labrecque New York locations. But while names like these would bring an undisputed level of swank to any beauty establishment, they don't single-handedly keep the salons' keratin treatments straightening, balayage processes coloring, or scissors trimming. That's why a team at the three-month-old, $5 million Hair by Paul Labrecque salon in the newly renovated Rittenhouse hotel is focused on building a book of Philadelphia A-listers.

WHITE GUYS who can cornrow black women's hair? In all the hundreds of hours I've spent in beauty salons all around the country, I've never seen anyone but a black stylist perform this traditional braiding technique. But at Panache Hair Design, the white, male stylists have been doing it for years. Co-owner Frank Altomare pretty much taught himself back in the 1980s by practicing on his own hair. These days, not only can he cornrow black hair, but he also does relaxers and sew-in weaved styles that would make even Beyonce do a double take.
