The Hair Apparent

[The Hair Apparent -]
Constructed of stained oak panels that have seen better days, this squat building's low ceiling makes the space seem somewhat cramped. Scattered on all of the walls are several dingy paintings, some of them hanging slightly crooked. Taking up most of the room is a long display counter, its surface littered with wares for sale, while a swinging door leads further into the building. The scent of strong cologne permeates the humid air.

Welcome to The Hair Apparent Style your hair, beard, mustache, or even your bald head, with our wax, oil, or pomade. TURN the wares to decide where you want to apply them - head or facial hair. POUR perfume or cologne into them to add a bit of scent to your next application. A small selection of cologne to use with these can be found in the crate. The beard clips are decorative, but also let you add a bit more interaction with your beard. The beard comb and brush can be used on beards, mustaches, or just hair for those lacking facial hair.

On the long display counter you see: a square sea blue metal jar of pomade, a thin faceted glass vial of oil, a tiny ceramic pot of wax, a thin mithril beard clip twisted into a knotwork design, a pair of filigreed silver beard clips, a narrow mithril beard comb with dark-tipped teeth and a squat bone beard brush.
