After Homer discovers a genius talent for styling hair after cutting Patty Bouvier's hair and opens his own salon, he becomes Springfield's most in-demand hair stylist. But having to listen to women's problems and gossip all day long leads Homer to believe his gift may actually be a curse. In order to stop people from coming to him to get their hair cut, he styles Marge's hair for a party, amazing everyone, and tells them that Julio did it. Meanwhile, when Milhouse decides to live each day to the fullest, (after watching the 'real' start to 'Finding Nemo') he comes out of his shell and professes his love for Lisa, only to have his heart broken. Milhouse then catches the eye of popular fifth-grader Taffy (guest star Kristen Schaal), causing Lisa to spy on them. When she reveals herself to them Taffy breaks up with Milhouse because he still loves Lisa and she kisses Milhouse to make him happy.
