If you're thinking about trying out the latest trend in men's hairstyles, here are a few pointers from the experts on how to do the 'do. What should I ask for? Some folks refer to it as an undercut. Others call it the Jimmy, the Darmody or the Michael Pitt. J.P. Mastey, who owns the Baxter Finley Barber & Shop, says requests even include "the haircut like the young guy with the limp on that old-timey HBO series. " Although most barbers and stylists will probably know what you're talking about, Supercuts senior artistic director Melanie Ash offers a concise description: "Ask for a cut that's shorter through the sides, clippered up all the way, disconnected and left with length through the top. " Or take in a photo of the style.

Nikola had a special offer from Supercuts: Buy 12 haircuts and get the 13th free. However, when he tried to redeem his card for the freebie haircut, he was told the offer was no longer good -- even though the card had no expiration date. ASK LAZ: Smart answers to consumer questions Nikola wants to know: Don't they have to honor their own coupon? As far as I'm concerned, yes. A coupon is basically a contract. But apparently that's not what a lawyer would say. The legal view here is that a coupon represents a marketing pitch, not a binding contract.

Half zebra and half donkey, the fuzzy little zonkey named Ippo was born one week ago on an animal reserve near Florence, Italy. The zonkey is not the brainchild of some deranged Dr. Moreau-like figure trying to put two animals of a different species together, but rather is the product of good old-fashioned natural lust. In an interview with the Italian news channel RTV38 (which you can see above), a member of the family that owns the reserve described a romantic love affair between a female donkey and a male zebra that was adopted after it was confiscated from a failing zoo. The zebra probably jumped the metal fence that separated the two animals to mate with the neighboring donkey.

If the twentysomething guy from the mailroom, your waiter at Mozza and hipster music moguls all seem to be sporting the same haircut — trimmed buzz-cut short on the sides, left long on the top and swept back from the forehead — it's not your imagination. It's "Boardwalk Empire. " Or, more precisely, it's a throwback haircut from Prohibition-era America, reintroduced in all its dapper disheveledness by Michael Pitt's James "Jimmy" Darmody character on the Martin Scorsese HBO series.

Some day soon, the last barber will lock up the last barbershop, hand the keys to Fantastic Sam, donate his barber pole to the Smithsonian and ride off into the sunset of nostalgia, joining the town crier and the doctor who makes house calls, right? Wrong. Not when Shaq leads the Lakers to victory with nary a hair on his head, Tom Cruise debuts a new buzz cut at the Oscars, and long-locked John Corbett is the one stealing Carrie's heart with his newly shorn look on "Sex and the City."

Regis Corp., seeking to exploit the fragmented hairstyling industry by acquiring other chains, said Monday that it has agreed to buy ailing Supercuts Inc. in a stock swap valued at $120 million. Regis already operates several groups of shopping-mall-based salons, and its proposed buyout of Supercuts--a pioneer of the discount haircut chain--fits its strategy of grabbing a bigger share of a market dominated by mom-and-pop outlets.

Blame it on Bree Walker. The former KGTV (Channel 10) anchor, currently working in New York, established a new tradition for women in San Diego television news. Her hair looked simply mahvelous. "Her hair was the talk of the town for a while," KCST-TV (Channel 39) reporter Rory Bennett said. Walker's hair, carefully coiffed every weekday by Merle of Hillcrest, set the standard. Yes, it's unfair, silly and superficial.
