It had all the atmosphere of a public execution straight out of a black-and-white Western. At high noon Friday, nearly a dozen teachers and coaches from Corona del Mar High School, draped in black protective shawls, turned to face their tormentors: hair stylists who shaved their heads in the name of cancer research. As pop music blared from speakers, students emerged from the shadows of their classrooms and gravitated en masse toward the stage as the faculty appeared to the cheers of their students.

ANAHEIM — Most NFL players ride to special events in limos or in exotic sports cars. When the player is the dead-last pick in the draft, he rolls in the back of a vehicle more ideal for a soccer mom. Welcome to the life of Tim Toone, Mr. Irrelevant. There was no need to valet park the van for Toone at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel and Spa on Friday. Toone jumped into the van with his parents, brother, two Mr. Irrelevant Week volunteers, and his agent. Before the seven left the hotel for a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim game, a couple of guests in the lobby rolled their eyes at the choice of transportation and then grinned.

Need a haircut? I always do. But if you need one, get yourself down to Hampton Salon, on Bayside Circle in Newport Beach by 4 p.m. today. It's important. Every hair that ends up underfoot at Hampton Salon today will be sacrificed for a very good cause — to benefit Containers of Hope, a Christian nonprofit that provides food and school supplies to kids around the world. The event is called "Cuts for Change," and not only do you get a perfect trim but it's way too cheap to stay home.

C harles Thompson, 65, has decided that he's been working too hard. The wig maker is retiring after 45 years in his Laguna Beach shop. Thompson said there's other things he wants to do, too. "I have gotten busier than I've ever been," Thompson said. "I was beginning to think I wasn't going to do anything besides what I do every day. I mean, just my routine is going to work and staying by my hair and doing hairpieces. Thompson said he and his partner bought property in a 13-acre gated community in Charma, N.M. "I want to do some gardening," he said.

A hair salon in Newport Beach is helping to clean up the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill, one haircut at a time. All of the clippings that stylists sweep from the floor at Hair West Salon, 2817 Villa Way, in Cannery Village, are shipped to a nonprofit group that uses the hair to make sausage-shaped booms and square pads that sop up oil from industrial spills. Oil clings to human and animal hair because of their porous texture, but the oil is not absorbed. This makes hair an ideal material to clean up oil spills.

Tim Toone says people give him strange looks in Ogden, Utah. It’s a conservative town, and Toone usually catches people by surprise because of his hairdo.

The Detroit Lions picked him with the 255th and dead-last selection, making him Mr. Irrelevant XXXV. Yes, Mr. Irrelevant is a white man with dreadlocks.

In the seventh decade of my life, I’ve finally discovered who I am. Not in the metaphysical sense, of course, but in a more corporal one. I’m a Ginger. A what? A Ginger. That’s me. Gingers had their “coming out” in a 2005 episode of the popular Comedy Central series, “South Park.” Frankly, it was a clever satire of racial intolerance. But, a little more than a week ago a Facebook group jumped on the idea and promoted a “National Kick a Ginger Day.” The contemptible action resulted in several “Ginger kids” around the country being beaten up. It’s not my intention to make light of their misfortune, but I find the subject personally relevant.
