His hands have worked magic on some of the most famous manes in the world: Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Lopez, Linda Evangelista. But Cuban-born Oribe Canales, 54, wants you to know that he's just an average Joe. He's frequented the same neighborhood barber in Miami for the past 18 years. You can call his sister — who works the front desk of his Miami salon — to make an appointment. Oribe — he's referred to by his first name — was at the Sheraton Baltimore North Hotel in Towson last week to help celebrate the 40th anniversary of About Faces, the salon chain that has used and sold his products since his line launched, to give a hair demonstration and help style models for a hair and fashion show extravaganza.

Jennifer LopezOn the 6 (Work 69351)Pop stars who aspire to acting may invite snickers, but few things in the entertainment world invite as much outright derision as actors-turned-singers.Over the years, countless movie and TV stars have cut records, from Johnny Depp and Cybill Sheppard to Don Johnson and Jennifer Love Hewitt. And in almost every case, the music-buying public's reaction to those efforts has been: "Don't quit your day job."Jennifer Lopez doesn't quite fit that model. For starters, she was a singer and dancer before she became an actress (her first big break was as one of the dancers on the comedy show "In Loving Color")

Makeba Riddick stepped off a plane in New York City, exhausted after spending weeks in London working with the Black Eyed Peas, only to get a call from her manager. The record label needed Riddick to fly to Milan immediately and cut a song with pop star Rihanna. The song, "Live Your Life" — a single for the rapper T.I., featuring Rihanna, was almost finished, but the label wanted Riddick to write Rihanna's lyrics and help guide the young singer through her verse. Riddick threw a mini-temper tantrum, then took a deep breath and reluctantly boarded a plane.

SUN SCORE * 1/2 (one-half star) The saga of a brutalized housewife in Enough should make you feel as if you've lived a thousand lifetimes. Instead it makes you feel as if you've lived through a thousand Lifetime channel movies. A couple of unusually prestigious names to be associated with a formula revenge thriller, director Michael Apted (Coal Miner's Daughter, Enigma) and screenwriter Nicholas Kazan (Reversal of Fortune), have emerged with a generic woman-in-jeopardy flick that jumps to life only with a smack-down ending that leaves female viewers stomping their approval and males checking to see if all their equipment is still attached.

Jennifer Lopez casts a queer eye on her straight guy - Ben Affleck - in Martin Brest's excruciating Gigli. Affleck plays the title role: a low-level Los Angeles mob thug assigned to kidnap the mentally challenged kid brother of a federal prosecutor who is making life hard for an East Coast godfather (Al Pacino). Lopez plays a lesbian hit woman assigned to ensure that Gigli doesn't bungle the job. From the moment Affleck declares that in every relationship "there's a bull and a cow," they make hideous chin music together.

The day after, it was time for Oscar fashion fallout. Who will forget Bjork getting caught like, um, a dead duck in her swan-around-the-neck number or Jennifer Lopez, a one-woman crusade to stamp out modesty? Here's what others had to say about the top two style victims at Sunday's Academy Awards: Take a gander "Bjork ... spared any major designers the embarrassment of being connected to [her dress], saying, `A friend of mine made it.'

Tonight at 8 on Fox's American Idol, the remaining eight contestants are mentored by Jennifer Lopez, which strikes me as odd. Sure, she's sold millions of albums, but her strength seems to be in selling a performance, not so much on the singing. And, as judge Simon Cowell likes to remind everyone, this is, in fact, a singing competition. On the other hand, some of the competitors could probably use some feedback on charisma and working the stage (such as, dare we say it, Sanjaya Malakar)

On a green hill overlooking Charles Street, on the campus of the Johns Hopkins University, stands a red-brick and white-porticoed house that fairly sings. It is one of the best-preserved Federal-style houses in the country, a National Historic Landmark, a brilliant jewel in Baltimore's architectural diadem. And hardly anybody who passes by knows what it is. Or even notices it. No, it's not the Hopkins president's house. Nor is it part of the library, or a fancy dorm. It is Homewood House, the historic home of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the longest-surviving and only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence.

El Cantante purports to tell the story of 1960s and 1970s salsa sensation Hector Lavoe, but it's basically the tale of a womanizing man who marries the worst possible wife - a spouse who hangs on to him for dear life and knows how to use his guilt to hold them together with a spike. Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez star as Hector and his wife, Puchi, but this is no vanity production. Anthony plays Hector as a musical dynamo and an emotional weakling who can't say no to drugs or sex. Lopez plays Puchi as a woman who props him up when the going is good and uses his failures to cement his need for her. In her mind, she's alternately a cheerleader or a domestic rock.

The list of reasons not to be young, beautiful and famous is short, but No. 1 would have to be "the belly bump patrol." "The belly bump patrol" is apparently a subset of the dreaded paparazzi, photographers who train their lenses on that part of a woman's torso which reveals that she is either pregnant or she has had a burrito for lunch. The slightest bulge is suddenly cause for wild speculation, as Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and Reese Witherspoon have recently discovered.

Will audiences flock to the pitiful Derailed to see how Jennifer Aniston was handling her split from Brad Pitt when she was filming it a year ago? Has Robert Downey Jr. overcome the notoriety of his drug busts so that audiences can see what's evident in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - that he is the most gifted actor of his generation? Pundits blame the fiasco of Gigli on the over-covered affair of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez - just as they ascribe the box-office success of Mr. and Mrs. Smith to the over-covered affair of Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Lots of pop fans who detest what's become of mainstream radio seem to feel New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer's recent settlement with Sony BMG over payola charges means "real" music will soon be back on the airwaves. Don't hold your breath. Critics of today's pop music falsely equate the corporate admission that millions were spent trying to alter radio station playlists as a sign that the sounds now dominating radio are being forced on us. It's as if big, bad Sony BMG - which releases music by Maryland-based rockers Good Charlotte and R&B stars including Beyonce Knowles and Jennifer Lopez - used its vast resources to keep "real" music (rock 'n' roll, adult pop, jazz, what have you)
