A few years ago, I had a terrible haircutting accident that resulted in a most unfortunate mullet. I tried various ways of camouflaging the mullet — headbands, scarves, hats, hiding my head inside a pillowcase — without much success. Finally, I came to the realization that if I ever hoped to look normal again, I’d have to cut off my hair and start all over again, and so, just two days before my 30th birthday, I got the shortest pixie cut ever. It’s been nearly 2 ½ years since that fateful day, and after a few brief pit stops at various short styles, my hair is finally long enough again that I can worry about getting it in food while I eat. Thankfully, rather than go back to my short cut, there’s this handy dandy Noodle Eater’s Hair Guard that will effectively keep my hair out of my lunch. Sure, I could just wear a headband or pull it back, but neither of those options makes a statement quite like the Noodle Eater’s Hair Guard does, which, of course, says, “Yeah, my hair’s long now, so suck it.” [via Interior Design Boom] Keep reading »
“90210″ star AnnaLynne McCord either got a major haircut and dye-job, or she’s wearing a major wig. Annika thinks she copped “90210″ character Silver’s look, though I must say it’s pretty close to Adrianna’s hairstyle, too. [Miami, 12/31/2008] Keep reading »
As I noted yesterday, “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson cut his hair. While it’s obvious that he’ll have to grow it back for the sequel “New Moon” — after all, Edward Cullen’s hair doesn’t CHANGE — I’m still mourning the loss of his luscious, dirty locks. Above, his hair in its many disheveled forms. Can you guess the chronological order of these photos, from the oldest to the most recent? Answers, after the jump, but no cheating! Keep reading »
I’ve always found it funny that as the Brazilian — and I’m talking waxing here, people — has became more popular among women, it’s beards, mustaches, and facial scruffiness that has become more in vogue for men. I can’t help but wonder why the women of my generation are hacking off their bushes while the men are letting their face hair grow wild. I’ll admit it. I’m a victim of pubic hair peer pressure. I mean, if you go to the beach, you have to go “there.” Once, I even had a waxident. However, now that I can put my bikini back in storage, I’m wondering, as a single lady on the loose, what the social obligations are to my crotch? I bet if we ask those non-manscaping guys if they’re going to start shaving as we back off waxing, we’ll find a hairy double standard. Keep reading »
A manâ€™s hair says so much about him — especially if heâ€™s bold enough to be bald. But since every lady loves to run their hands through Greek god-like ringlets (right?), some men in New York set out to see if a perm would have the same power. The gentlemen were simply looking to spice up their look, but thatâ€™s quite a risky move considering the permâ€™s potential resemblance to the jheri-curl (see the video, after the jump). Still, Todd Lamb, an author and humorist from Brooklyn, convinced 15 of his friends to do up their ‘do and he compiled the results in a book called Yo, Check The Perm! Will this guy trend catch on? Perhaps you hope it doesnâ€™t, but after seeing the proof in these pages, the perm might be ready to rise again!
