Please go easy on me. I am looking for places where I can custom order T-shirts with logos and words (for example, Japanese pop singer Ayumi Hamasaki's logo). I hope to find somewhere that offers good quality but isn't too pricey. Please help me out. Shirt Changed, Sheung Wan The Dictator rules: And how does Ayumi, or any brand for that matter, feel about you reproducing her logo without permission? For a quick, reasonably priced fix, go straight to Melanie (stall 21, Li Yuen Street West, Central, tel: 2501 4362, mobile: 9429 6799, e-mail: melanie_tshirt@yahoo . com.hk). Bring your chosen motif, printed in high resolution, and they'll stamp it on for about HK$70 in one or two days. That includes the T-shirt, available in a number of solid colours, although we prefer to use our own. For an extra HK$29, the stall will print something on the back of the shirt, too. Some companies will entertain small orders, such as HK Webart ( www.webart.com.hk ; tel: 3427 5180). For a minimum order of five, it will do a heat-transfer print on white tees in three to four days (HK$160 each, plus HK$100 delivery charge). If you'd prefer screen-printing, the minimum order is 60 pieces in five days (HK$55 each). Image In specialises in printing on all sorts of materials, including mugs, key-chains and, of course, T-shirts (HK$168; shop 593, Grand Century Place, Mong Kok, tel: 2506 9115). Hmm, where else could you get something printed? A number of photo developers and printers provide this kind of cheesy service. Try Eimage (shop 7, LG/F, Jardine House, Central, tel: 2147 3188), where staff will print your photo on a T-shirt for HK$120 in about seven days. Just be careful or your next question could be coming from prison. I can see it now: inmate fashion trends for autumn/winter. I've been keeping my dangly earrings in a glass bowl, but they always get tangled. Where can I get one of those nice stands you see in jewellery shops or something else to hang them on? I want to display them but don't want to clutter my dressing table. Hang Woman, SoHo The Dictator: So, you want your home to look like a jewellery store. What next? A lit-up glass display case instead of a dining table, with little stools on either side? (Actually, that could be quite chic. I'm a genius.) Source your earring stand like any jeweller would. The part wholesale, part retail imitation jewellery shops on Wing Kut Street are a good place to start, with plastic or metal stands available for between HK$45 and HK$120. For example, HKJew has a few circular earring stands in clear or black acrylic (HK$60; G/F, 18 Wing Kut Street, Central, tel: 2541 6870, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org ). Order exactly what you want with sourcing help from the Trade Development Council's free online directory ( www.tdctrade.com ). Some of those contacts could be convinced to sell you one or two 'samples'. Art supplies stores such as Craft Paradise can also help not only with materials to make jewellery, but also the stands to display it on (HK$150 to HK$360; shop 209, Citic Tower, Admiralty, tel: 2104 6210; www.craftparadise.com.hk ). Muji doesn't have stands, but its clear plastic trays, mini drawers and boxes are things of beauty (about HK$95 each; 3/F, Lee Theatre Plaza, 99 Percival Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 2808 0622). We prefer to get creative with decorative ideas. Dangle them from a coloured paper and wire lantern (from HK$65; G.O.D., 3/F, Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, tel: 2784 5555). Use a lovely Chinese paintbrush stand in carved wood at Yue Wah department store (from HK$300; Hip Shing Hong Centre, 55 Des Voeux Road, Central, tel: 2522 2333). Or splash out on a big, tree-like metal clip stand at City'super (HK$680; Basement One, Times Square, Causeway Bay, tel: 2506 2888). Is there a hairdresser that specialises in African-American hair in Hong Kong? I am especially interested in one that does hair weaves. You are my last hope. All Frizzed Out, Sha Tin The Dictator: OK, enough with the Princess Leia theatrics. Just go to The Hairdressers (1/F Winning Centre, 46 Wyndham Street, Central, tel 2973 0512; www.the hairdressers.com.hk) and ask for 'Bach'. A preliminary consultation is strongly recommend to determine what can or cannot be done, but he does do weaves (HK$500 an hour; HK$650 for a basic cut) and straightening. Another recommended stylist is Keith Wilson at Hipp Fish (32 Elgin Street, Central, tel: 2815 3638). Although weaves and braiding are not on the menu here, he does relax, colour, cut and wrap African hair (HK$700 up). Hipp Fish is also one of the best places in town for extensions, if you'll consider that option.
