I just loved this idea…

Evangelicals got you down?

Bracing yourself for more apocalyptic economic disaster? Pregnant?

All of these events can take quite a toll on a gal’s hair…which is why Park Slope’s hottest salon is organizing an evening of wine, women and patriotic hair-dos to lift your spirits.
Yes, you too can look like America’s hottest governor from the coldest state.

For the low, low price of $75 we are bringing the the Sarah Palin updo to NYC and
ALL proceeds for this service will go to Obama’s campaign fund.
We promise to deliver on that feeli
ng of ‘well, heck, anyone can be president.’
We are also going to give a prize for the best Sarah Palin look-a-like and have tons of other treats for you.

The ladies of “Submerged: Tales from the Basin” will be reading excerpts from the anthology, a book dedicated to the politics of hair and a portion of the proceeds of the book go to Katrina survivors. All in all, this should be a really terrific event.
Bring your glasses, brush up on your Tina Fey impression, leave your experience at the door, and don’t forget your checkbooks…and, fellas, pigs and pitbulls aren’t the only things that look great in lipstick.
