Technically the plural is 'hairs'; 1 hair, 2 hairs, 3 hairs.

A collection of hairs is 'hair', so, in the context of the title on the latest Blog entry (which I think is what you are referring to), 'hair!!!' would probably be more usual/appropriate than 'hairs!!!'. While it is more usual to say you have hair on your head or up your nose (referring to the collection of hairs), it can still be valid to refer to hairs under your armpits or on your head.

Before you say anything, I appologise in advance for being picky. :-)
