Super-powered female icons Wonder Woman and Supergirl are inspiring for more than their ability to fly and fight crime. They also have fantastic hair. SAS Shampoo & Style owner Monica Ruggieri knows that a great hairstyle is more than an expression of vanity. Great hair has the ability to transform a woman's attitude and sense of confidence. "When you've had your hair done, it makes you feel better all day long," Ruggieri said Monday while standing in the all-new blow-dry salon on East 17th Street.

Editor's note: Staff writer Mona Shadia has gotten used to fielding questions about Islam and Middle Eastern culture in our newsroom. Whether it's fasting during Ramadan, Eid, hijabs in the workplace, the Irvine 11 or the Arab Spring, Mona has educated her co - workers (and bosses) about her faith and experiences. Those conversations led us to realize how little some Americans understand about Islam and the Middle Easterners who live among us in this era of Islamophobia in America.

COSTA MESA - Families packed the stands and children clutching stuffed animals lined the track. Everyone was clapping along to Queen's "We Will Rock You" as the competitors took the stage at the Orange County Fair.

The week that began with Mustache Monday at UC Irvine's Bren Events Center, went on to feature a pair of extremely close shaves. The Anteaters' men's volleyball team took care of visiting Hawaii in four games, the first of back-to-back Mountain Pacific Sports Federation wins over the Warriors, to start the prosperous week at the Bren. Several UCI players sported real and artificial mustaches and hundreds of fans donned imitation black, blond or gray lip accessories passed out as part of a promotion that played off the Island connection of television's Magnum P.I. Even game officials caught the spirit of the brainchild of UCI assistant coach David Kniffin, who added Magnum's trademark Detroit Tigers cap to complete the effect.

"Gimme a head with hair, long beautiful hair … shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen. Give me down-to-there hair, shoulder length or longer, flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, hair!" We're not talking about my hair actually, even though it's usually a little long. We're talking about "Hair," the musical. It's back, at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts through Thursday — brash, rowdy and, fortunately, as outrageous and funny as ever. The full title is "Hair: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical.

While putting on his uniform to attend an all-boy Catholic high school in Orange County, Marshal Kennedy Carolan never dreamed that in a few short years he would grow out his hair and travel the country, doing drugs, dissing the establishment and taking part in political demonstrations. All onstage, of course. Carolan is part of the ensemble in the national touring company of the famed (and divisive) "HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical," which underwent a successful Broadway revival in 2009.

Can it be more than 40 years since Orange Coast College musical theater star Diane Hall moved to New York, changed her surname to "Keaton," and won a role in the original production of "HAIR: The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical"? Well, Diane Keaton's (non-musical) movie career, including an Oscar for Best Actress, moved right along, while "HAIR" became pigeonholed as a period piece and hadn't been heard from much until 2009, when the show won a Tony for Best Revival of a Musical.
