Hairstylist Appreciation Day
What would Marge Simpson be without her blue bouffant?  Rachel without her “Rachel” shag? Farrah Fawcett (who?) without the famous “Farrah Fawcett” flip? Dorothy Hamill’s wedge? Bo Derek’s cornrows? Or even Sanjaya without his pony-hawk?

Well we’ve got their hairstylists to thank for these lovely, and in some cases iconic doos. So give a shout out today (and maybe a bigger tip) to your own hairstylist and let them know how important they are to you and your tresses.

And how are you celebrating “Hairstylist Appreciation Day?”

While we’re getting our hair spiked and highlighted today and those unibrows waxed and plucked just be thankful you’re not living in Iran. An official edict from the big cheeses over in Iran have decided its a no-no for the Iranian men to get western style haircuts. Or even to get their unibrows plucked!

“In an official order to barbershops, they have been warned to avoid using Western hair styles and doing men’s eyebrows,” the student news agency ISNA quoted a police statement as saying.*

Damn that picture is disturbing!

Did you know there was a Sense of Smell Institute?

Me either! Well today the Institute plays host to activities in museums and science centers across the country educating us about our 5th sense, smell.

Did you know:

Everyone has his or her own unique odor-identity or “smell fingerprint.

No two people smell the same odor the same way. In other words, a rose may smell sweeter to some people than to others.

The average human being is able to recognize approximately 10,000 different odors.

Our sense of taste is greatly influenced by our sense of smell.

A woman’s sense of smell is keener than a man’s.

For the answers and more “smell” facts visit the website of the Sense of Smell Institute.

Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day is designed to expand opportunities for girls and boys, expose them to what adults in their lives do during the work day, show them the value of their education, and give them an opportunity to share how they envision their future. It is intended to be more than a career day. Each year, workplaces and adults around the country recognize its benefits and participate in the program to support our nation’s daughters and sons.*
