Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow is the 20th episode of Season 7 of Three's Company, and the 148th overall episode in the series. Written by Shelley Zellman and directed by Dave Powers, it first aired 5 April 1983 on ABC-TV.


Terri falls romantically for Jack when he buys a mustache, which makes him look like Terri's old boyfriend, David. Janet tells Jack the way to cool Terri off is to boss her around. While Jack is in the process, Janet finds out from Terri's mother that David treated Terri the same way and Terri thrived on it. Janet rushes out to find them and brings Terri to her senses when Janet strips Jack of his mustache, reassuring Terri that Jack is nothing like David.
