If you don't have a BodyBug or FitBit type activity tracker, and you just want to pick an Activity from the FS Activity List that might be close to equivalent of 8 hours standing doing hair, I would suggest tracking 1/2 the time as "Standing," and 1/2 the time as "Music Playing." (Guessing that Music Playing is like standing up and playing a guitar or something.) That way you're not severely over or under estimating your calories burned, but recording something.
