Who is the most reviled man in the world at the moment? There are quite a few candidates, but I think a global vote would put Kim Jong Un at the top of the list: he of the unbecoming and widely derided hairstyle. (No, not that hairstyle, you’re thinking of Donald Trump.)
But what do I see as I walk the streets and the airport transit lounges, when I glance through the windows of barbers’ shops, when I see news clips on TV? Every male human under the age of 30 seems to want to emulate this hated man! Even little boys, for whom the choice of hairstyle is presumably made by their mothers, have shaved sides and bushy tops!
I’m old, I know, and out-of-touch. I’ve given up hoping that I’ll ever really understand the human race. But can anyone explain this bizarre phenomenon to me?
One thought on “Hair”
Ummmm, change for the sake of change? In other words, fashion. It’s no more extreme than when I was a boy, in the 1940s. It’s just a bit more artistic today. And I suppose it was less obvious the due to mens’s hats– another bit of fashion, albeit one that had run its course by the 50s.
