OILY STRANDS: In light of the recent and tragic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Van Michael Salon is collecting and donating hair to help in the cleaning efforts of the spill. Instead of throwing the extra hair away from a haircut, they are saving it and donating it to Matter of Trust, a Florida organization, which is going to make brooms with excess animal and human hair to combat the oil spill. Just a simple haircut can make a world of difference during this time. If our hair can make a difference, then get those scissors ready. Chop, Chop. GET IT: Van Michael Salon, 1667 Michigan Ave., Miami Beach. 305.534.6789.
