What you can do to help with the Oil Spill: get a haircut.

The events unfolding around the recent oil spill off the coast of Louisiana seem to many of us to be unfathomable.  We yearn to help, but it seems as if there’s little we can do.  But… it turns out, there is something we can do!

Getting a hair cut.

Turns out, human hair clippings are excellent at absorbing oil and barbershops and beauty salons across the nation are being urged to save their clippings.  Even if you are like me and you clip your own hair – you can take your clippings to certain barbershops and add them to the cause!

Seems to me that short hair should be IN this Spring!
