Go to your local barber or beauty salon and ask them if they will save you all the hair clippings in your color, then come back in at the end of the day or week and collect the clippings. You'd offer to pay some reasonable amount for these of course. Then buy several packs of bubble gum. Chew up all the gum and make it into one big wad. While sticky, press the wad onto your head and flatten, covering all bald areas. Now take your hair clippings and press them in. Instant toupee! You can even get some of another color to add a few highlights.

Okay bring on the fishbones! lol

       you could also mix jello in a way that it will create highlights. besides, the rain would temporarily disable the stickyness of gum, and pretty soon the streets would become a barbershop's floor.

       You could just forget the hair and mold the gum into different shapes on your head. Can you imagine the possibilities? just think what you could create with different flavored/colored gums. lol. Or like you said, mix it with Jello. lol. You'd be quite the tasty treat. lol. When it rains you'd have to stay inside or wear a plastic cap.

       All of a sudden, my head has become - as it were- pliable.

       Too funny. I don't know how you're going to extricate yourself from the pillow, but...

       I guess you'd have to take it off before bedtime.....perhaps with peanut butter? lol. This could turn into a sticky situation when bringing dates home.

       Not if they're an old prune. Ever seen my utterly fantastic Eurohosiery idea? It also puts cuttings to good use.

       Yes it is quite fantastic. lol. Gave me a good laugh. :)
