    Someone gently talked me into a Hairycopter experience. A what? A Hairycopter!

    The Metro Times Detroit:

    Detroit is the capital of many things — cars, Motown, garage rock … and hair entertainers. That’s right — not barbers, hairdressers or even hair care specialists. Hair entertainers.This genus of performers was spawned by the one, the only and the original Hair Wars, a Detroit-born collision of hair, fashion, dance, competition and a heaping dose of sass.

    It started back in 1985 when David “Hump the Grinder” Humphries was DJing at a Detroit club, looking for a way to spice up his parties. Humphries saw something in the black hairstyles of the time: intricate, colorful and aggressive. He invited a few stylists to show off their skills at his club night, and the ball was set rolling. Two decades later, Hair Wars is a nationally recognized phenomenon.
