Lynn Visson "Where Russians Go Wrong in Spoken English"

Wonderful avva recommended a good book about troubles Russians have with English language. It's not about grammar or pronunciation, but about differences in cultural background and mentality, lack of knowledge about American lifestyle and unspoken traditions.

It seems a little bit outdated, but still will be a big help for someone wishing to understand English beyond word-for-word translation.

Жизнь бьет ключом... больно и по голове!
I read book. My English isn't perfect and I can't translate this phrase - strands of long.
who know how it songs on Russian? All phrase - I woke up, strands of long, dark hair sticking to my forehead.
I can understand approximately translate "strands of long" here. But may be this is idiom, and I don't know it.
