best idea ever award: haircuts by children

I am way too insane about my hair to submit to this, but encourage you all to get Haircuts by Children, an initiative of performance artists Mammilian Diving Reflex.

"Haircuts by Children is a whimsical relational performance that playfully engages with the enfranchisement of children, trust in the younger generation, and the thrills and chills of vanity. We will engage Grade 5/6 students from Parkdale Public School who will offer free haircuts to members of the public. Haircuts by Children will take place in hair salons across Toronto from noon to 4pm on May 6, 13, and 20, culminating in a two-day performance on May 27 and 28, 2006 at Harbourfront Centre's Milk International Children's Festival of the Arts."

Call 416.703.5491 to book your free appointment or just drop by to watch.
