  • For Matisyahu, no beard, no entry

    January 29, 2013 | 1:09 pm

    Since Matisyahu shaved his beard last year, the former Chasidic reggae musician has been suffering all sorts of blowback. Along with losing his facial hair, sidelocks and the love of some Jewish fans, apparently he’s lost his VIP status in the eyes of club bouncers, too.

  • Conversations From Twitter – Part 6

    By Ilana Angel

    June 24, 2012 | 10:13 pm

    When I called my latest interview, he answered the phone by serenading me with Sinatra’s “My Way”.  He sounded great, and while surprising, exactly what I expected.  That was my introduction to Twitter’s @JohnnytheGrk.  I knew I would like him because I love his wife...

  • Remembering Vidal Sassoon

    June 19, 2012 | 4:24 pm

    It was only a few weeks ago that I was sitting with Vidal Sassoon in the living room of his sprawling Bel Air home. It was a chilly early evening and we warmed ourselves by the heat of the fire that was roaring in the fireplace.  We were drinking green tea – it was always green tea...

    I was very excited about doing this series of interviews, and while I knew it would be great, I was not sure how long it would last.  I have been interviewing people that follow my reality blog on Twitter and with each person I talk to I find myself loving the series more.  They...

  • The Power of Hair

    By Ilana Angel

    June 1, 2012 | 8:22 am

    I have always had nice hair.  It has been a lot of different lengths, and even more colors, and with the exception of a really bad perm in the 80’s, it has always been very pretty.  I pride myself on taking care of it.  Hair is a lot of work, especially when you have much as I do. ...

  • No Bieber Fever Here!

    By Julia Bendis

    December 9, 2010 | 9:22 am

    Well, as much as I swore to never speak or write about this Bieber kid, here it comes:

    I can’t stand the kid!  What is the hype all about?  Seriously, the kid is not cute, his voice is sub-par at most, and if everyone hasn’t noticed he’s got a Tick.  Have you looked at him...

  • First Person - My Upfsherin

    By Rabbi Anne Brener

    May 4, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    The upfsherin (hair cutting ceremony) took place on the last day of Shevat -- an auspicious time for a healing ritual. The day before Rosh Chodesh (first day of the month) is observed, in the medieval mystical practice of Yom Kippur katan (little Yom Kippur) -- a day for cleansing,...

  • Keeping My Hair Under Wraps

    By Judy Gruen

    Recently, I found myself spellbound while watching "Girl With a Pearl Earring." This film, based on the excellent Tracy Chevalier novel, is a fictional account of the history behind Vermeer's famous painting of the same name.

    The novel revolves around a servant girl, Grete, who...

  • A Reason to Wig Out

    By Gaby Wenig

    May 20, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Is your hair kosher?

    That was the question being debated at a fever pitch this week in ultra-Orthodox circles here following a ruling by an Israeli rabbi saying that wigs made from human hair coming from India could not be worn.

    Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv said that hair from India,...

  • Hair Club for Jews

    By Carin Davis

    December 18, 2003 | 7:00 pm

    Hi. My name is Carin and I have a Jewfro.

    Heeb hair. A Moses mop. A latke lid. I'm down with my fun girl curls, but I can't say the same for the men I meet. My big hair is the Mason-Dixon Line of my L.A. dating life. Some men love the untamed, wild, bed-head look of my natural...

  • Fuzz

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    September 6, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    A day before I left for a vacation cruise to Alaska, I looked in the mirror and spied, atop my clean, bald head -- Hair! There wasn't much of it, standing less than one-sixteenth of an inch tall. But when I ran my hand over my crown, I felt the delicious tickle of stubble.
