 A Texas born barber has one of the more original tributes to Ray Lewis: He shaved an incredible portrait of the legendary Raven right into one of his client's coifs. The hair portrait is unmistakably Lewis. The war paint. The steely gaze. What looks like a 52 right down the side. "I did this cut to honor the great linebacker of the Ravens," Joe Barber said on YouTube when he posted a picture of the cut. "May be the greatest or close to it.... hope you enjoy. " This barber, whose real name is Joe Barajas, is not just a guy who cuts hair.

Robert Cradle had achieved his goal of owning a successful barbershop with an Odenton establishment that employed seven full-time workers and served a steady stream of customers coming in for that just-right haircut. But even as he made his business dream come true, he also noticed a steady stream of people taking up residence at an adjacent homeless shelter. Cradle discovered that many at the shelter couldn't afford to maintain good grooming habits while they were struggling to get back on their feet.

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.

Whenever I'm asked to speak at a journalism seminar or creative writing class, some well-scrubbed student inevitably shoots a hand in the air and inquires brightly: "Where do you get your ideas?"Then the rest of the students crane their necks forward expectantly while tiny beads of blood form on my forehead and I stammer: "Well, um . . . you see, there's no one . . . it's sort of like being a bricklayer, in the sense that. . ."By this time, of course, the student who asked the question is playing with her hair and staring at the ceiling while the others glance at the clock.

We'll start with the haircut, because it's the haircut that historians will remember.Bill Clinton has what they call in the trade "bad hair." Others have had this problem and still gone on to lead productive lives. Einstein. Beethoven. Kramer.But bad hair may have done in Clinton.Once upon a time, his was a truly majestic story, this man from Hope who grew up in a dysfunctional family where his mother used to cut his hair using a bowl, which would have been fine except that most of his hair collected in the top of the bowl instead of outside it, meaning little Bill always ended up looking something like Alfalfa from the Little Rascals.

Musings (" reflexiones") from the Puerto Rico Tip-Off *Was Nick Faust really sporting a modified mohawk cut during a workout yesterday  at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico? He sure was. "He says it's lucky for him," coach Mark Turgeon said. Faust may be a freshman, but he's sure got his hands full. "Poor kid. he's got to play point guard. He's got to guard the best player on the other team. He's got a lot on his plate," Turgeon said. If you follow me on Twitter, you can see a photo I posted last night of a limping Pe'Shon Howard with Faust and his haircut in the background.

Super Bowl Sunday arrives, and Nate Smith has an important message for his girlfriend, Darlene Griffin. It goes like this: "Don't be wearin' my slippers. " That's a warning Nate uttered the other day, after cutting my hair in the West Baltimore shop where he styles and teaches the tonsorial arts. He seemed to be asking me to convey the message for him, though I'm sure he's delivered it directly by now: "Don't be wearin' my slippers, Darlene. " Those are Nate's 'Niners slippers, see, a gift from a customer.

Vincenzo Pasqualucci - Vince for short - is ready to groove. He's wearing a blue pinstripe suit and has groomed his bushy white mustache that's shaped like a frown. He oozes a sweet cologne called "Sex Appeal." It's Monday night, time for big-band dancing at the Eastport Clipper restaurant near his downtown Annapolis home. Time to cha-cha, mambo and swing "with all the beautiful women." "I still beat all the young men on the dance floor," he says matter-of-factly. He uses the term "young" loosely.
