If you were lucky enough to catch British political comedy In the Loop - and we can't recommend it enough - then the chances are you're going to go ga-ga for Veep (right). Especially if you're at least remotely interested in American politics.

Artistic impressions

Finally, it appears, the long-awaited renovations at the Fringe Club's heritage premises on Lower Albert Road will go ahead.

Abrams or either of The Hairy Bikers had set up a booth at one of those torturous events, our life would have taken a very different turn.

Sound bites

Staging a drama by French playwright Jean Genet is always a challenge. How has it been with putting on Les Bonnes?

Make the cut

THERE'S NO DOUBT a new hairstyle can boost your spirits. Compliments from friends flow like champagne and your confidence soars. But what do you do when a trip to the hair salon has the opposite effect?

Culture shock

FRINGE CLUB FOUNDER Benny Chia Chun-heng isn't an old man. But, as he meticulously prepares a cup of Fujian ti guanyin with his favourite clay tea set, scarf wrapped around his neck against the cold, he's sure beginning to sound like one.

Mane attraction

Hair made a big statement on the catwalks for spring/summer, and the fringe is most definitely in. Teased tousles are sexy, and iron-straight fringes work well on Asian hair

big is beautiful

Big glamour bouncy hair can work for day wear. Think full-bodied, sex kitten coiffures, strong '70s silhouettes, big soft curls or waves, and a side-swept fringe.
