The Barbie is You

I would like to let my hair and beard grow out and shave the beard and cut my hair differently every morning, using magazines and the internet to get ideas if I run out. Seeing as I have little experience with this beyond cutting it to the same style every morning I will use mostly very simple styles, taking my time and using a mirror. I will always have some form of beard over my entire face, however, so as to obscure my features somewhat.
You are fully aware that your hair no longer grows, since you are dead. Or, to be more accurate, any such changes 'reset' each night, which doesn't give you time to grow your hair to any appreciable extra length. Such appearance changes would be the purview of the Disguise ability or the Obfuscate power 'Mask of a Thousand Faces.'

AS to my hair, I believe the rules state I may choose to have died with a full beard and very long hair. I am making this choice and taking advantage of the resetting. Rather than maintain my normal appearance every night when I awake I will trim down from this reset state by different amounts each night. I also have one dot of disguise which I will use to help hide my appearance, I will also have my street people buy me all sorts of different cheap clothes, having Raff drop them some money in their begging cups to do so, and leave them at predetermined locations.
Zing! Somebody wins the rules-lawyer award of rules-lawyering for this cycle!
In any event, you awaken each evening to comb out your luxuriant locks of beauteously flowing butt-length tresses, ready to style them into whatever coiffure strikes your fancy. Mowhawks, fauxhawks, mullets, skullets, buzzcuts, liberty spikes, pippi-longstocking braids... the possibilities are endless. It's like having one of those Barbies where you can always attach more hair refills... only the refills are infinite, and the Barbie is you!
You trim your full and manful beard to match whatever stylish haircut you decide to give yourself. Sometimes you have a devious goatee. Sometimes you sport a hipster-esque little soul patch. Sometimes small children accidentally mistake you for Santa Claus.
All in all you are fairly certain that nobody who catches a casual glance of you one day is going to mistake you for the same man should they catch a casual glance of you the day after. Your Disguise is pretty skillful.
Friendly ST Note: As you have opted to invoke the butt-length hair rule all sudden like, I as an ST would like to inform you that I am invoking the "You are producing a garbage-bag and a half of sympathetic links to yourself" ruling in return. You, in fact, have made oodles and oodles of piles of hair which will have to be disposed of, and somewhere in the back of your magical lizard brain you recall that if a mean bad magician should happen to find even one strand of your hair in the dumpster, that mean bad magician will probably be able to watch you in the shower, and curse all of your socks to be itchy and do all sorts of other mean bad things to you.
Not that there are any mean bad magicians rooting through your dumpster... that you know of.
