HAIR
• A clump of Elvis Presley's hair is going up for auction on October 18 in Chicago, and it's expected to sell for $12,000. The hair is from 1958, when the singer had to shave his sideburns for the Army. [Daily Beauty Reporter/Allure]

• The Miu Miu show featured a loose side braid, a similar look to what Alexander Wang sent out weeks ago (Wang had a side part, Miu Miu's was in the center). Perhaps it's because hairstylist Guido Palau was the hair leader working on both shows. [Beauty Counter/Style.com]

• Pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, Obama adviser David Axelrod, and Attorney General Eric Holder are among the nominees for the Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year. You can vote for a winner online at the American Mustache Institute website. [HuffPo]

PLASTIC SURGERY
• Tina Fey: “You can point any kind of laser at my face, but I don’t think Botox is for me. I think it is bad. [People with Botox] look like their faces are full of candles — a shiny, shiny face. Festive. A holiday candle.” [Just Jared]

NAILS
• The Dell computer company partnered with nail-polish label OPI Products, Inc. to create a series of 26 laptops in OPI shades. Twenty colors will be from the standard collection, while six will be holiday hues. [Engadget]

MAKEUP
• Makeup artist Pat McGrath and hairstylist Julien d'Ys were the beauty-team leaders behind the theatrical John Galliano show, where each model was given a unique look. [WWD]
