Dividers to the right, please.

"no hawk"

A co-worker showed me some pictures, last year, of a friend who moved to LA (Los Angeles for you non-USians).  His friend follows trends, tries to get on TV commercials on the side, etc.

Anyway, the guy had/has this haircut where it is cut like a typical 20-something inch-long hair-do.  Then some gel is added and the sides are combed toward the center, aligned along the length of his head, in a pseudo mo-hawk/pointy thing no longer than 2 inches.

I noticed it and I though, yeah, that'll be in Chicago in about two years or so.

Sure enough, it is here.  We are 1.5 years behind the cool states.

Not that I like the hairdo.  But my colleague openly bashed his friend and said "Dude, WTF is up with that gay ass hairstyle?  YOu go to Cali and go gay or something?"

And I am willing to bet all the straight guys are going to follow along by summer time.


Humans.  You are all predictable IDIOTS.

I know at least one of you idiots is running around with a pointy hair-do.  CONFESS!

Not me. I'd need glue, not gel, to keep it in place :(

What, these guys here?  Hardly slaves to fashion, I'd venture to say.

the faux-hawk was out in 2001...

trends start in Tokyo, get huge in NYC, then go to LA to die...

NOOOO.  Too big. THe style I'm talking about is analogous to the mullet:  all business in the front, party in the back.  Except the little baby hawk thing is hair that is long enough that it looks business-y during the week, but on the weekend, you bed-head it/point it.  Look at the Ryan Seacrest photo again.

yah, its the same thing. the wikipedia just shows the extreme version. the baby faux hawk is the frat boy interpretation.

Saw what you were talking about this weekend at Penguicon.  Dude had his hair dyed brilliant glowing purple as well.  I thought it looked cool, if not especially  masculine.  Something I don't think bothered the wearer, as nothing about the way he was dressed suggested any particular masculinity.
