Faux Part

Artificial part for an artificial 'do

Spray-on hair has always been of concern to me. Hair appliances are bad enough, in that they tend to be obvious if not skillfully manufactured. One of the key shortcomings of wigs is the unnaturalness of the part. (Obviously this only applies to hairpieces that are designed to imitate hairstyles with a part).

Thus, to prevent the same problems from plaguing spray-on hair products, a reproducible method of producing a part needs to be incorporated into the product. Perhaps a retractable string could be engineered into the can, allowing the user to position it on their scalp before applying the hair-product. After application, the string could be removed, giving the illusion of a ruler-straight part. Different diameters of string could be selected, giving the user a choice of part obviousness.

       Yeah, then you look like you're not only wearing spray on hair, but also have a strange bald line on your head. Still, +, 'cause if hair in a can is marketable, there's no reason this shouldn't be.

       Perhaps a special nozzle could be designed, to aid in the painting of the parting.

       Perhaps you could spray your head with colored silly string?

       [pluterday], that'd be most practical for oldies who like a bit of purple rinse through their hair.

       Are we having another Bad Hair day?

       No, merely a Saturday...albeit a hairless Saturday.

       [UB], please *please* post the Faux Fart. I'm sorely tempted, but I'm afraid you beat me to the title.
