Vacant area, Open skies, thousands of miles, and one surprise… Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind.
Burning Man is a week-long event that inspires people from all over the world to come and celebrate creativity and self-expression. The Desert floor or “playa” is converted into a city of sorts with a theme. The annual event began as a bonfire ritual on the summer solstice in 1986 when Larry Harvey, Jerry James, and a few friends met on Baker Beach in San Francisco and burned a 9-foot (2.7-meter) wooden man as well as a smaller wooden dog. Harvey has described his inspiration for burning these effigy figures as a spontaneous act of radical self-expression.
“While some artists have never questioned the current marginal and passive status of art and are content to work within the reservation called the ‘art world,’ others have made conscious attempts over the last decade to combat the relentless commodification of their products and to reenter the ‘outside world.’ In the late ’60s, after a period in which most avant-garde art was drastically divorced from social subjects or effects, many artists became disgusted with the star system and the narrowness of formal ‘movements.’ They began to ask themselves larger questions. When they looked up from their canvas and steel, they saw politics, nature, history and myth out there.”
Lucy Lippard, Overlay (1983)

Our Bruno wig is one of our most VERSATILE! Check it out next to Justin Bieber and Zac Efron. For JB, his hair has been as large a part of his public image as his music and dance moves. His brunette combover and “boy bangs” have increasingly become part of his public image.
According to HairBoutique.com, the “key component [to the Zac Efron look] is the eyelash-grazing, side-swept fringe with a sexy peek-a-boo element. Zac’s hair is the hottest hair style right now for trend-conscious guys.” The wig is incredible timely with the release of Charlie St. Cloud, released in theaters nationwide on July 30th!

Lady Gaga – how much do we love thee? Let us count the Facebook stats. From the Yahoo Music Blog post today:
Lady Gaga, the self-proclaimed Fame Monster, is gaining more notoriety by the day. On July 2, she reached 10 million fans on Facebook, making her the first living person to achieve this honor, Us Magazine reported.President Barack Obama, who has 9.5 million fans, had the most followers for a living person on the leading social networking site until Lady Gaga surpassed him.
Gaga ranks sixth overall for most Facebook fans. According to USA Today, Facebook, the Family Guy, Michael Jackson, Texas Hold ‘Em Poke, and Mafia Wars are the only other entities with more Facebook fans than the pop singer.
Despite her popularity and success, Lady Gaga recently told Rolling Stone that she keeps herself grounded. “When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year-old girl,” she said. “Then I say, ‘ … You’re Lady Gaga you get up and walk the walk today.”
