Eclecti Hair You can tell a lot about a person by what's on top LYNN LAU Journal Staff Writer EDMONTON Listen carefully. It's your hair talking. It's trying to teflyouasto- ry- There are almost as many heads of hair as there are people and, as you can imagine, some have more to say than others. Today, we take you through Edmonton by hair. Try to describe 53-year-old Ba-ba in one word and "visible" might be what comes to mind. At 6'4", the "old hippy" is hard to miss. You've probably seen him on Whyte Avenue, or at the grocery store, or the Folk Festival. Those who listen to CJSR 88.5 know him as the campus station's Master Crocodile. Baba grew up in Punjab, India, and moved to Canada when he was in his 20s. According to the Sikh tradition, he treats his hair like a part of his body, sacred and whole as God created it therefore he does not cut it "I was raised with this," he says ofhis hair. "This is part of the Sikh tradition. I cut it as a rebellion. Then, I don'tknow, for five orsix years, I just did whatever I wanted to do with my hair. Then there was some sort of return to my roots. I kind ofbecame sensitized to my body as a whole. I sort of gained a new appreciation of what Td learned as a child and rejected as a teenager. "Whenlstarted to wear my turban again, when I was 27, it was nourishing for me. It was a rediscovery for me, like a child. A lot of other stuff came with wear-ingaturban and growingmy hair learning traditional values and understanding why my particular culture believed what they did."Babahasn'tcuthishairin25 years but last year, he stopped wearing his turban.

' It also divides them into a number of "descriptors": ' Mild Animated Violence Contains scenes depicting cartoonanimatedpixilated characters in unsafe or hazardous acts or violent situations. Mild Realistic Violence Contains scenes depicting characters in unsafe or hazardous acts or violent situations in photographic detail. 0 Marie Sato Chris Falconer Electrician Jerry Paschen, 61, likes to tell people that dectrifi-cation is the reason his hair is the way it is. It's been tousled ever since he was a kid and he doesn't have to put any of that funky pomade in it to make it stand up. "There's nothing special about me or my haircut," he says, pensively. "My daughter says to me sometimes, Dad, are you apunk?'I say No, that's just my hair.'Ido it myself. Diet may have something to do with it I eat a lot of carrots." One way to describe Sharon Johnson hair is "bum-length." The 49-year-old waitress at Silk Hat Restaurant wears it piled up high withabow clip most days at work. "But I wear it different whatever mood I'm in. It's really long, eh? So I can wear it down my back. Sometimes I wear it up and sometimes I wear it down."John-son goes through a bottle each of shampoo and conditioner each month. Itmaybehardtobelieve, but she says it only takes 10 minutes to blow-dry it "But if I leave it to dry by itself it takes all day because my hair is really thick." Comic Mischief Contains scenes depicting activities characterized as slapstick or gross vulgar humour.

She bleached it and died the ends pink about four months ago but the colour has since faded. "It looks cute, I think," she says. Hope Arnott, 25, has to trim her bangs each morning to make sure they're straight "I guess if s kind of I don't want to say Romulan fromStor Trek. It's that kind of idea," says Arnott. "It's usuallyjust black with bangs and boring. Actually last summer I had blue bangs." Believe it or not, 19-year-old Chris Falconer is a business administration student. (And we thought all crazy-haired folks were in the drama department) Falconer is having as much hair fun as he can before he loses it "The father and the brother are slcwfylosmghair "heexplains. "I figure it's genetics for me to lose it" Also, his eye-catching head works for the band he's in, Wood-abeen (he plays rhythm guitar).

You know a guy is having too much hair bliss when he refers to his hair as a project. It's hard to keep up with Falconer's ever-changing style. He's coloured it blue since this photo was taken. Security guard Crystal Zammit, 18, was spotted minutes after she walked out of Ebony & Ivory hair salon witha$350 style. "I saw other people with it and I thought it looked cool,"she says. "It's different" Before, she had short layered hairno longer than her chin. The new braids feel like Barbie hair, and like Barbie hair, you're not supposed to wash this stuff often once every two weeks is the those software ratings mean betting-like behaviour.

In between washings, you're allowed to use rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip. With such careful care, the hair should last four months. Jacquie Aanen, 36, is the wacky owner of Hair Classique. Her hiair is an explosion of blond curls, like an angel after a lightning storm. "There's a little perm on top and little on the bottom," she says. And some natural waves in there too. She likes her hair long and wild. We like it too. 'X The Legend of Zelda is a family-oriented adventure game.
