    Madison, WI ( -- Scientists at the Medical College of Wisconsin have found what may be another alternative to embryonic stem cells. They have found that adult stem cells from hair follicles, which don't involve the destruction of human life to obtain, are different from other types of skin cells. The researchers recently identified the molecular signature of hair follicle stem cells called epidermal neural crest stem cells. The college says the study resolves conflicting scientific opinions by showing that these cells are distinctly different from other types of skin-resident stem cells. The MCW research team has reported their findings...

    Adult stem cells found in the bulge of hair follicles may provide an alternative to embryonic stem cells, say researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.   Like embryonic stem cells, these epidermal neural crest stem cells have a high degree of plasticity, can be isolated at high levels of purity, and can be expanded in culture, the researchers said.And, similar to other types of adult stem cells, the epidermal neural crest stem cells can be harvested through a minimally invasive procedure. This means that it may be possible to use a patient's own hair as source for stem...

    BEDFORD -- Here's a hairy case for investigators. A woman shoplifted two hairpieces worth $110 on Dec. 18 from Armstrong-McCall Beauty Supply. The theft was uncovered when an employee found two empty packages at the business in the 4100 block of Airport Freeway. The employee went into an office and reviewed videotape from a surveillance camera to determine what had happened to the packages. On the surveillance tape, a woman is shown opening the packages and placing the hairpieces in a sales catalog that she was carrying. She then left the business and drove away in a white car. No...

    Hairstyles in the 1980s were mostly large and fulsome. The decade began with a continuance of the Purdey cult hair cut. The New Avenger series of 1976-79 and which starred Joanna Lumley left above, is recalled as much as anything for its famous Purdey Haircut. The Purdey streamlined hair style was simply a version of a slick bob with a definite back neckline contour. Versions were seen throughout the 1980s and the hairstyle worn by Princess Diana at her engagement above is a version of this bobbed combed forward style with shaped nape of neck style. Look at any picture...

    Talk about going back to your roots... The average British woman spends an astonishing £36,903.75 on her hair in a lifetime, according to new research. She will spend the equivalent of just under two YEARS of her life washing, styling, cutting, colouring, crimping and straightening her locks in salons or at home. A whopping 650 days will be dedicated solely to creating a 'salon look' in her own bathroom. The average woman splashes out a monthly average of £10.08 on shampoos and conditioners, £14.03 on home styling products and £301.14 a year on haircuts and colouring. She spends the equivalent...

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Halle Berry aside, most American men show an "overwhelming" preference for women sporting long, luscious hair compared to shorter cuts, researchers report. Oh, and sorry, Madonna: men also seem to prefer brunettes over blondes, by a wide margin. The findings are based on interviews with 50 men conducted by psychology researcher Dr. Kelley Kline, of Florida State University in Panama City, Florida. She and co-authors Dr. Colin Peeler and undergraduate student Kim Fazzone presented their findings earlier this month at the annual meeting of the American Psychological Society, in Atlanta.

    Philadelphia, PA ( -- Human hair could be a new source of adult stem cells and provide another alternative to embryonic stem cell research. Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have isolated a new source of adult stem cells that appear to have the potential to differentiate into several cell types. If further study proves successful, the researchers say it could yield the tissue needed by an individual for treating a host of disorders, including peripheral nerve disease, Parkinson's disease, and spinal cord injury. "We are very excited about this new source of adult stem cells that...

Each heartbeat pumps millions of the tiny cells into the body's vascular system at speeds of more than a meter per second. In about a minute, they can carry oxygen from the lungs to tissues in the rest of the body and return to the lungs. And they die before they're 4 months old. The body replaces old red blood cells by generating fresh ones, typically producing about 2 million cells per second. A...

A London newspaper said Prime Minister Tony Blair's Labor Party spent almost $14,000 on hairstyling bills for Blair's wife during last year's month-long general election campaign. The Times said the party lists the styling bills as an election expense of $490 a day for a month of campaigning. A Labor spokeswoman responded, "So what?" She said Cherie Blair worked hard and is enormously popular, then added, "Don't forget, we won the election."

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. A Mescalero Apache family in southern New Mexico has sued the producers of Steven Spielberg's television miniseries, "Into the West," claiming a set stylist cut an 8-year-old girl's hair without regard for tribal customs. "It's part of our culture not to cut a girl's hair until her Coming of Age ceremony," the girl's father, Danny Ponce, said Friday in a telephone interview. "The only ones allowed to do that are the parents. Nobody asked for permission." Ponce filed suit in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque on March 6, naming Turner Films Inc. and the unknown stylist as defendants....

So last month, the 37-year-old Knoxville, Tenn., embarked on an attempt to rid the hair from those body parts for good with a laser. The $2,400 she's spending on the process is “nothing” in the big scheme of life and worth it for “convenience and just comfort,” says Winston, a massage therapist and mother of a 3-year-old.

Hair on your head and facial hair have different properties. Cutting your hair will only make it shorter and...

He and his aides were riding in a van on the way to a Time magazine cover-photo shoot. Nicholson had left the hairbrush behind. "Sir, I don't have it," he said, after rummaging in the bags. "Marvin, f---!" Kerry said. The press secretary, David Wade, offered his brush. "I'm not using Wade's brush," the long-faced senator pouted. "Marvin, f---, it's my Time photo shoot." Nicholson was having a bad day. Breakfast had been late and rushed and...

    Karina Hsieh's black hair was so long that it tickled the back of her knees when she walked. It was so long that when she sat down, it doubled as a seat cushion and often got caught in the casters of the chair, making her a prisoner of her desk. Just how long was her hair? It was 43 inches long, to be precise, from the top of her head to the last split end. And considering that she's barely 5 feet tall, that's pretty long. Karina started growing her hair in third grade. Or, rather, she just stopped getting...

    Berlusconi hair mystery revealed by Italian surgeon ROME (AFP) - The mystery of Silvio Berlusconi's rapper-style bandana was explained when plastic surgeon Piero Rosati told the Milan daily Corriere della Sera that he had performed a hair transplant operation on the Italian prime minister. The 67-year-old premier wore the unusual head-dress in greeting British Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites) earlier this week and later when he pressed the flesh Thursday at Porto Rotondo, near his palatial vacation residence in Sardinia. "A little more hair is even better," Berlusconi said when a young boy complimented him on the...

    SCHOOL BARS TEEN OVER RACIAL HAIR ROW - Jun 21 2004 By Tom Parry A TEENAGER was sent home from school for wearing her hair in braids, even though other pupils are allowed the style for cultural reasons. Jade Fitzjohn, 14, had the trendy plaits done while on holiday in Spain. But back at school, she was told to take them out or be barred. Jade refused so staff excluded her from lessons, saying she could not return until she was braid-free. When she pointed out that two black girls had an identical style, she was told they were allowed...

    COULD the outcome of the US election turn on something seemingly so trivial as big hair? John Kerry, the craggy Democratic presidential contender, has repeatedly joked that, in the contest against the grumpy old men, George Bush and Dick Cheney, he and his young running-mate, John Edwards, have "better hair". Maybe he wasn’t joking. Kerry even trumpeted Edwards’ selection as People magazine’s sexiest politician - you can’t imagine Tony Blair taking similar interest in Gordon Brown, who this week was hailed as Britain’s sexiest politician. The fixation with Edwards’ good looks isn’t just a media phenomenon, though the press has...
