Best Business Decision

Karen Shelton's best business decision was the hiring of a corporate hairstylist who visits both HairBoutique.com & T&S Software the first Monday of each month to provide complimentary haircuts for all employees. Karen was quoted as saying this was the best business decision because it saves all the employees personal time and distraction. It also shows special appreciation for all of the employee's contributions to both companies.

Let Your Hair Down
Author(s): Nick Galvin

The follically challenged Nick Galvin recommends a good hairdresser & here is what he said about HairBoutique.com

Hair Boutique.com

Delving deeper into the realm of the tonsorially obsessed, we arrive at Hair Boutique. Dedicated to "banishing bad hair days", Hair Boutique occupies the more offbeat end of the hair spectrum and features the strangely compelling Hair-o-Scope, which gives astrological prognostications about the likely state of your hair on any given day, and an article on how to stop pulling your hair out, by the distinctly dodgy-looking Dr Howard Rosenthal. Don't miss Jerky Flea's Celebrity Hairspray, a freewheeling bitch-o-rama about the hairdos of the rich and fatuous.

Dot.prom: Check our these sites
Author(s): Sue Levin

Whether you're going to prom or you're freaking out because your child's about to, the Web tells all and helps many. Now that you're calm, let's focus on the hair. Find the tendril sensation of your dreams. Another site to check out is Hair Boutique's prom section ( http://www.hairboutique.com/tipspromstyles.htm).

Ned a dress, date for prom?
Author(s): Tom Bray

How many once-in-a-lifetime experiences involve corsages the size of Maine lobsters, periwinkle ballgowns, undercover teachers armed with walkie-talkies, rented waistcoats with paisley cummerbunds and purple punch spiked with warm Zima?

If that describes your wedding day, I'm deeply sorry. We're talking prom night. Step off the dance floor for a moment and peruse these prom-ising sites:

Teen.com has a one-stop prom site, including teen journals, embarrassing prom stories, ideas on hair and gowns and an updated prom poll. It has everything but the 800-number for a good bailbondsman. www.teen.com/prom.html

More Big Night advice is available at PromNight.com, plus Patty the Prom Pro. P the PP will answer questions about etiquette, apparel or planning, but will not offer hangover cures or legal advice. www.prom-night.com.

If you spend more time tending to your hair than to tending to your relationships, go immediately to Prom Hair Countdown. It will help you craft a 'do so perfect your date might actually mention it. www.hairboutique .com/tips/tip129.htm

Choosing a prom dress can be a problematic equation. Straps or strapless? Tangerine or lilac? Modest or go-home-and-get-yourself-dressed daring? PromDress Home can help you choose by showing off this year's hot designs. www.promdress.net

If you're putting on this year's prom and you need help ? boy, are you in trouble. But if you're putting on next year's prom, try the Prom Planning Network. Their experts can help plan prom menus, tickets, transportation, fund-raising and much more. www.proms.net.

If you're too shy to ask your elusive love to the prom, try the Cyrano Server. Pump in the pivotal information and it will pump out a poetic, eloquent e-mail that could be compelling enough to win the hand of your most admired. Or be mistaken for the Love Bug virus and swiftly spiked. www.nando.net/ toys/cyrano.html.

And if you're home alone in your rented Armani because everyone said "get bent" to your prom invitations, spend the evening with Julio Iglesias. "Julio's Prom-Planning Calculator for Boys," is a snotty little satire of the high-living crooner, with calculated categories for "sensual gifts," "fine motorcars" and "collateral material." Using the Faux Julio's formula, the prom should run you about $460,000, give or take the convertible. www.chickenhead.com/julio

Now get out there and make like Freddie and Britney. But be home by midnight or Dad will take back the SUV.

Develop fashion sense by making the cyber-scene...

From dandruff to dreadlocks, the Hair Boutique [www.hairboutique.com] has the topic covered, coloured, straightened and cut. This site not only offers the basics, such as 1,000 hairstyle photos, but goes over the top with Hair-Scopes, where you can get your hair's horoscope done.

Comb through the site's 52 Ways to Have More Fun With Your Hair Every Week of the Year section and read about Linda Tripps' new 'do.

Then, clip right along to HairTalk, HairPersonals and HairNews, some of this site's other hair snippets.

Warning: This site is addictive -- I was on it for 40 minutes and only clicked off when I smelled a potential electrical fire in the house.
