Moop Control? Any ideas?

Postby tattoogoddess » Tue Jan 31, 2012 6:25 pm

I was thinking about gifting hair... doing braids and hair cuts. How would I control the Moop of hair? Any ideas?

Fully enclosed area, tarps on the ground, constant cleanup.

Hmm... maybe, instead of cutting hair, you could offer to do braids with bits of colorful yarn woven in? Maybe add chunky beads if you're sure you can wrap the hair tight enough that the wrap will last all week. No feathers, of course.

There was a huge camp once who had a wheel of barbering, whatever you spun was the cut you got. Mohawks, shaved, bowl cut, mullet, and many more. Much MOOP, but I'm assuming they had a good plan.

I can ask MyLarry about bringing his 12V mini shovac from the truck. He might not want it on the playa though. But yeah, styling and embellishing may be more fun than actual cutting.

I thought about doing that. Just sticking with braids. But a few of my burner friends said I should gift my cutting talents. Idk. It would be fun but a shit ton of moop! Im already offering to do body paint. So maybe braids and paint is enough? Idk would people actually want hair cuts at bm? It's hot and all. Hummmm.

That sounds awesome!!!! I would have loved to see that! Did people actually do what they spun?

Pretty sure that was 2002. I think it was the first time I heard the term "mullet".

As far as I know, yes.

If hauling the cutting implements works for you, then do it, and if an opportunity arises for a cut, then do it (over a tarp, out of the wind). However, if these are the tools you make a living with, I wouldn't suggest getting them anywhere near the playa. Crap happens out there, in unimaginable ways.

There was a camp doing that on the 9:00 plaza last year and yes, whatever you spun is the cut you got. My son and I went, but there was a huge line so we didn't stick around for a cut.

Someone in my camp in '97 was shaving balls, crotches and whatnot. Style wheel for that could be interesting.

Cutting hair isn't that rare on the playa.
