The violinist who replaced lost hair

Friends are lamenting the death, from a heart attack, of Blair Lawhead, a professional violinist on Broadway who also ran a successful hair-replacement clinic. He was just 55.

From his website:

In 1989 Blair Lawhead came to New York City with a violin, a pair of scissors and a dream. Today, Blair Hair is being toasted by New York nightclub personalities and the Gay Press as a legendary part of the city’s lavender landscape and as much a part of queer culture as the Chelsea neighborhood in which the business is located.

A really useful service.

    Did he ever do AF of M President Ray Hair’s hair?

    Was he replacing it with bow hair?
