These professionals, similar to shoe-shine boys, will flag you down as you pass them, and offer to comb down ridiculously-sticking-out locks of hair that are making you look stupid without you being aware of it. There's no official charge; just tip them $1 and they'll be thrilled.
after a rain shower or if you've recently showered and your hair has dried funny. Or if you forgot to comb this morning.
Ready for the job interview.

<Oliver/>Please, sir, I want some more.</Oliver>
||Something for the weekend, sir?
||Better have some seriously well genned-up fashionista homeless doing this as there is currently a plethora of intentionally "scruffy", "destructured" and "asymmetrical" hairdos being carried about on the tops of the heads of insufferable Nathan Barleys. I suspect that these meticulously becoiffed types would be less than appreciative if their expensive hairstyling was transformed into a sensible sideshed.
||I fear this will give rise to hair-mussing punks, strategically positioned upstreet to drum up business for hair-comb boys with whom they are in cahoots.
