    I.  INTRODUCTION
    +++++++++++++++++
    
    I had purchased the 'official guide' along with my copy of Animal Crossing:
    Wild World.  Upon reading through it I discovered that there was NO
    explanation of the new Barber Shop/Hairstyle features beyond 'well, play with
    it and you'll find out'.  Well, I don't know about you, but when I'm trying
    to pay off my house I don't have 3,000 bells to spend each time until Harriet
    gets it right.  After the first couple of experiments I discovered a pattern,
    and this guide was born.

    II.  QUESTIONS
    +++++++++++++++
    
    Shampoodle will appear inside Nookington's, the final upgrade to the department
    store.  (Spend 200,000 Bells and have someone visit your town over Nintendo
    Wi-Fi or DS to DS connections.  When they buy something from the shop it will
    upgrade.)
    
    When you enter Shampoodle and ask Harriet for a haircut, she will ask you a
    set of questions.  The way you answer these questions will determine your
    'style' and the haircut you get, as well as the color.  So here is a simple
    chart of the questions.

    - Harriet will only do your hair once per day.
