The name "Medusa" makes one think of one of the three Gorgon sisters of Greek mythology. The sisters with snakes for hair. They are a hair stylist's nightmare. Imagine each "strand" having a mind of its own. I think Medusa may be the most famous of them all, although her head is more famous than the rest of her body. Mythology tells us that she was beheaded by Perseus who used her head as a weapon. It is said that to gaze upon her would cause one to to turn into stone. So, no one dared look upon the head of Medusa.
