You might wonder what ingredient in a Mexican-made hair gel called Moco de Gorila - or Gorilla Snot - got its distributor in trouble with the law. It's probably not what you're thinking. It was the styling product's smog-forming compounds that prompted California air regulators to take action against Midway Importing Inc. The Houston-based company, which distributes health and beauty care products nationwide, paid $213,000 in fines for selling the line of hair gel in violation of consumer product regulations designed to protect air quality, the California Air Resources Board said Monday.

It's the shear that was heard around the world: Beyonce has a pixie cut. The pop diva shared three uncaptioned photos of her scalp-skimming 'do Wednesday on Instagram, posing demurely in a mirror as she gingerly frames shorn honey-blond locks with her hands. You can almost hear her say, "How do I look?" Big deal, you say? Kind of. Stars including Halle Berry, Anne Hathaway and Michelle Williams have all rocked out the elfin 'do for film roles and more importantly kept them to reinvent themselves, a la singers Miley Cyrus and Rihanna.

In the latest developments Wednesday, a suspected U.S. drone strike killed seven more alleged Al Qaeda militants traveling in two cars in southern Yemen, the fifth such attack in less than two weeks.

LAS VEGAS - Comb and electric razor at the ready, Martin Corona stood over his customer, poised to create a version of his specialty retro-cool hairstyle. The rockabilly cut. "I'll take the regular pomp," the customer said. "High and tight on the sides. " Corona nodded. He understood precisely what the man wanted, a cut still in demand even six decades after it made its debut among American youth. The rockabilly look was spawned by the 1950s music that melded rock 'n' roll with bluegrass, with its twirling stand-up basses and twangy vocals.

For Arsenio Hall, revisiting the talk show circuit after a nearly 20-year absence, comes with at least two caveats for the Dog Pound looking to get reacquainted with their ol' late night pal: less hair, littler shoulder pads. "It's kind of the same Arsenio you know," Hall joked while promoting his upcoming late-night talker, "The Arsenio Hall Show," Monday at the Television Critics Assn. press tour. Hall made a splash on the late-night arena in the late '80s and early '90s, with his hit syndicated talk show, bringing a new voice to the scene and creating memorable moments along the way (he cites Magic Johnson's revealing he had HIV, and then-presidential hopeful Bill Clinton playing the saxophone as his most personally memorable shows)

Beyonce knows how to keep fans in line, especially when they go for her hair.

I didn't know much about the bizarre U.S. market in "murderabilia" until I became an unwitting part of it. But I now know more than I'd like to about the buying and selling of souvenirs linked to gruesome murders. My encounter with the market came after a copy of my book, "Lost Girls," which chronicles the rape and murder of San Diego-area teenagers Chelsea King and Amber Dubois, showed up on a website fittingly called darkvomit.com. It was autographed by the murderer. On the page opposite my dedication to his two victims, sexual predator John Gardner had written: "I'm sorry for all the pain that I have caused," and signed his name.
