The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland has filed a federal employment discrimination complaint against a Maryland hair salon on behalf of an employee who says he was fired for being HIV-positive. Representatives for Ratner Cos., which owns the Hair Cuttery in Greenbelt, said in a statement he was fired for "repeated inappropriate behavior," including verbally abusing co-workers in front of clients. A company document outlining his HIV status as the cause for his termination — which the ACLU included in the complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission — "inaccurately described the reason for his dismissal," they said.

Eight African-American women have filed a federal class action against Hair Cuttery's parent company, saying the salon chain discriminates against black customers. The move is the latest development in a lawsuit filed this year by Paulette Harris, an Anne Arundel County woman who said the salon tried to charge her more because she is black. In that suit, Harris said that she was told by a Hair Cuttery employee that she had to pay $8 extra for her shampoo because of her "ethnic" hair. Harris also said that she was asked to pay in advance because, she said the staff told her, "ethnic" people tend to leave without paying.

For two years, Paulette Harris has had her hair shampooed and dried twice a month at a Hair Cuttery in Glen Burnie. Last month, when Harris, a black woman, went in for her shampoo, she said she was told the charge would be $8 more because she is "ethnic." "I said, `This is ridiculous, I've never been charged extra,'" said Harris, 25, who has straight shoulder-length hair. "`You're not going to charge me more because I'm not Caucasian.'" She filed a $600,000 lawsuit in Baltimore Circuit Court yesterday against Hair Cuttery, alleging negligent hiring and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

As the buzz of hair clippers mixed with Gene Simmons' howl through speakers inside Beatnik Barbershop, Ali Farzad awaited his last haircut inside the tiny Mount Vernon establishment. Raising his voice to be heard over the din, Farzad said he's moving to Los Angeles for work. After three years going to Beatnik, he's nervous about finding a new barber, he said, gazing at paintings by local artists mounted on the shop's exposed brick walls. "I'm very particular about my haircut, and I've had nightmarish experiences other places," Farzad said.

A shave and a haircut of yesteryear cost the proverbial two bits, 25 cents. A shave alone at The Old Bank Barbers, a soon-to-open barber shop on The Avenue in Hampden, will cost $25. It won't be any old shave, though. Owner Daniel Wells promises an old-fashioned, full-face, straight-edge shave, complete with hot lather, in a leather chair with a headrest that leans back. "It's an old-school barber shop with the tile floors," said Wells, who hopes to open this month at 1100 W. 36th St., the former site of Sixteen Tons, a men's clothing store.

Alexander Ovechkin, one of the greatest hockey player in the game today, and certainly the best paid, decided to get spruced up the day he signed a 13-year, $124 million deal with the Washington Capitals. He swung by Hair Cuttery for a $14 cut. And so, an endorsement deal was born. The NHL superstar began shooting ads for the discount salon yesterday in Baltimore. The campaign - "What he is to hockey, we are to hair" and "Most Valuable Hair" will appear on Washington-area billboards and bus shelters - is the work of TBC, a Fells Point agency that represents Hair Cuttery.

Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley and Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. may be feuding over who's the better man to run the city school system (and soon, perhaps, the state), but on the question of which politician has the better haircut, O'Malley wins, hands down. His honor the mayor rarely has a strand of hair out of place, yet he manages to look comfortably neat, instead of stuffy. His cut is short, but not severe. His style is conservative without that choirboy feel. At every public appearance, he looks freshly shorn.

MARK KARAFIN is a young actor who appears on this Sunday's episode of "The Sopranos" and who would love to tell you all about the scene he's in, except he can't, because that would be ratting. Look, you know what they do to rats on that show. If you're lucky, a guy with a face like a bad eggplant pays you a visit and rearranges your dental work with a crowbar. If you're not so lucky, he stuffs you in a refrigerator and dumps you off a pier. Well, it turns out the actors aren't supposed to rat, either.
