Cat Houses: A Trend That Gives Us Pause

Sep 26th 2011 11:10AM I don't need all those shelves. My cats jump from the bay window to the grand piano or from the floor to the bookcase (where they walk along or lounge on). They stretch out on the basement steps or the stairs to the second floor, and you have to climb over them to get up or down the stairs (why should they move?). Any house is made for cats. They'll just adopt what's in it for their pleasure. My house legally belongs to me, but my cats graciously allow me to share it with them.

Minute Makeover: Take Your Look From Cute to Sultry [Video]

Jun 30th 2011 12:31PM The make-over was nicely done. The woman was cute before the make-over, and she's still cute after the make-over. She just doesn't have the face that most people would call "beautiful." Sohpia Loren was considered "beautiful." Elizabeth Taylor was considered "beautiful." Hardly anyone would call these two women "cute." Many other women are cute, attractive, pretty, good-looking, whatever else you want to use. But "beautiful" is reserved for only a precious few women. Of course, that opinion is only mine.

Hair Extensions: Stars Go to Great Lengths This Summer

Jun 14th 2011 9:38AM Jane, some women just can't grow their hair past a certain length. It's in the hair's genetic makeup to last only a certain amount of time before it falls out and is replaced by a new hair, so the hair can only grow to a certain length in that amount of time. That's the reason some women use hair extensions. Others use them to get a long look without having to wait until their own hair grows (or while they are waiting for their own hair to grow). If put in correctly and maintained correctly, hair extensions do NOT pull out your own hair. And no, there's nothing wrong with wanting to look good. Not every woman (or man) is blessed with perfect looks. Everyone can use some improvement. And kudos to those who do something about it.

Hair Tendrils: Cute or Childish?

May 2nd 2011 11:29AM Many years ago when I was first a hairstylist, updos with tentrils on the sides were all the rage. I had a woman sit in my chair and describe how she wanted her updo to look. Then she added, "Oh, and I want little testicles on each side." I held back my laughter, smiled, and said to her, "Ma'am, if I could do that, I'd be a plastic surgeon...and there's be a couple of guys with very high voices walking around." True story. The woman became one of my best clients, and we laughed about that first visit for years afterwards.

Oprah Winfrey Debuts Bob

Apr 30th 2011 10:18PM As a professional hairstylist, I think this style is way too flat on the top for Oprah, and it is too stuck-to-her-head looking on the sides. I liked her hair layered way better. It had more movement and flattered her face much more. Also, a side part would make this style at least a bit more interesting and flattering.

Bangs: How to Cut and Style Them (Video)

Mar 30th 2011 11:41AM As a hairstylist with over 30 years experience, I can tell you that it's not easy to cut your own hair. If I had a dime for each time I had to fix someone's hair when they came into the salon in a panic after they played haircutter, I would have been able to retire by my second year in the business. If a choppy, uneven haircut is what you're after, shop low price for a haircut or cut your hair yourself. As with most everything else in life, you get what you pay for.

Hair Care Myths: Fact or Fiction?

Feb 25th 2011 9:59PM I've been a professional hairstylist for over 30 years. There are still people who insist that plucking a gray hair out will result in two more growing in. You don't need to be a hairstylist to know this, but think about it. If a man who is bald on the top of his head and has gray hair around the sides and back started plucking his grays out and two more hairs grew in for every gray he plucked, wouldn't he have a full head of hair again after a while?

Getting Fired Wasn't Your Choice -- What You Do Now Is

Feb 24th 2011 9:44AM Not only is the article stupid, but the guy who wrote it is totally out of touch with reality. What planet is he talking about unemployment on, Venus? Because he's not talking about unemployment on planet Earth.

Nacho Cheese Leads to Disney Suit

Feb 12th 2011 4:47PM Isn't it always the way? Parents don't watch their children, and when the children get hurt because of the parents' negligence, they sue the establishment they are in. Had I seen that happen, I would have left my name and phone number with the establishment and told them I saw the parents not watch the children and will testify to that in court in case the parents try to blame the establishment for their own improper parenting.

New Lady Gaga Song & House of Mugler Short Film [FULL VIDEO]

Jan 21st 2011 10:32AM Why am I not surprised to see the word "shocking" next to "Lady Gaga"? Her M.O. is shock value. Although her songs are commercial and catchy, she no great serious musical artist of the caliber of a John Lennon or a Joni Mitchell (to name only two). So she must add shock value to her minimally passable music to help maintain her popularity. The shock value of her outrageous costumes and antics will eventually lose its appeal with much of the general public. It will be a case of "it's all been done, it's all bee said." At the risk of insulting Lady Gaga's fans, I like to refer to her as Lady Gag-gag. She's not on my top ten list of People I Would Like To Be Stranded On a Desert Island With.
