Reviews from Past Producers

"I could have the Fu Manchu moustache one day or a mountain man beard or that stupid little tuft of hair right under the lip that some guys have that makes no sense because it doesn't cover anything but I would do it because I could!"

It's time to reveal your secret: You're obsessed with your hair. And why shouldn't you be?

Good hair makes your day. Bad hair gets you dumped.

Good hair gets you to the prom. Bad hair makes you look like an eggplant.

Good hair means you're popular. Bad hair means hat head for the rest of your life.

It's enough to make you want to tear your hair out! But you know what's better than obsessing about your hair? Watching OTHER people obsess about their hair! Now those people are crazy...
