This blog has spent a fair amount of time on the mullet, but we've truly neglected another Flair-worthy hairstyle: the combover. Thankfully, a new documentary promises to remedy this lapse.

As part of our exploration, Chris interviews various hair experts, including physicians, hair practitioners, even a gentleman who obtained a U.S. patent for the combover. Chris and the cameras also chronicle the experience of devotees of the combover. “Finally someone is going to record for posterity the dying art of the combover.” commented Shelly Pike, who has worn a combover for 37 years. “Nowadays people are too quick to get transplants or wear a toupe.”
