My mom is so excited for the new season of Doctor Who that she made a TARDIS appear in our living room. (It’s bigger on the inside)

How will you be celebrating the premiere of Series 8?

So not only do we make less money, but our hair is so precious is costs extra to get it cut.

Gee!
It’s almost like cutting a woman’s hair requires a greater level of styling then it does for a man!  It’s almost like generally women’s hair is much longer then men’s, and women’s hairstyles are generally more complicated and often use higher quality and quantity of hairstyling products! 
But yeah, you feel like a big woman trashing on what’s probably either a mom and pop family run establishment, or one that will probably have a bunch of minimum wage employees? 

As the daughter of a cosmetologist, who has explained many of the different options given to her clients and who has watched her mother transform people multiple times, I know first hand why prices are what they are.
Women’s hair takes longer to cut and it is usually accompanied with a style. Men’s hair is usually very short and they usually come in for a trim, which is really cheap and takes about fifteen minutes tops. 
If the guy’s hair is long and he wants a style too, guess what? The price increases to around the same amount for a women’s style. Because the price is based around hair length because hair length is usually what can determine how long it’ll take.
However, some places give little rewards if you’re a first timer. Men’s first haircut is half off as is women’s. The reason why is so they can get an idea of how good the stylist is and they’ll keep coming back. And then there are preferred customers, clients who have been loyal to a stylist for years, who get little things here and there with management’s approval:
A manicure at half price
A cut and style at 15% off
A children’s cut and style at half off for back to school
And then there are the times that the salon has engaged in charity by cutting and styling people on assisted living for free or cutting and styling a foster child’s hair whose mother had neglected and allowed to get severely damaged and unhealthy (that last one was a recent client of my mother’s and that little girl was so fricking happy afterward).
So yeah, salons have good reasons for their prices and sometimes that profit is used to support the stylists who work for free during certain times like those mentioned above (always approved by management first of course). By making the prices what they were, my mom never lost money even when she took clients who weren’t expected to pay by the management due to their circumstances. The prices of her normal clients was able to make up the difference.
Sorry for the rant, I’m just really proud of my mother’s career. It gets shit on enough by snobs who think she’s just a glorified hair dresser. I don’t like seeing people talking about stuff they know nothing about.

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”
