Hair you find on pillows and in corners of the room and in your refrigerator six months after the head from which it grew last visited.

MELODY – Female, 24, Liam's girlfriend. Short, stick-straight blonde hair. Which she wears with a barrette. To be extra cute. Mousy. She looks like someone who would have been abducted when she was nine but returned to her parents unharmed. Works for a non-profit.
