Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

Now that the Alice Dellal’s or Cassie’s shaved-on-the-side hairstyle is out of fashion and that the dip dyed and pastel hair starts to seriously become old-fashioned, teenagers have to innovate!

So, what is this new hairstyle we’re talking about?

Rick Owens sensed the trend before it occurred.  In 2009, he launched the concept of “voluntary baldness” with his A/W menswear fashion collection.

However, Peggy Noland, designer of all things eccentric has been wearing this “trademark” hairstyle for a while.

Here we are, two years after Rick Owens’s fashion show. I have just noticed that Sara Urb, a teenage Tumblr blogger, choose to be half bald too. One of her pictures on which she shows her new hairstyle already reached 700 notes on Tumblr, which means that a a bunch of others teenagers probably like it. Furthermore, Sara baptized her blog “awful aesthetic” and describes herself as an “awful style lover”. Bad taste is all the rage!

What could be more rebellious for a teenager than a voluntary baldness? Probably nothing, the baldness being the worst capillary nightmare of every adult.

I don’t know yet if this potential trend will become a real trend but it’s very likely that the idea might spread!

GOODBYE ENGLISH VERSION!

Dear english readers, I’m sorry to announce that I won’t translate my articles in english anymore. I don’t have enough time and I unfortunately can’t afford a translator. One day maybe…but until then, you can probably read the french version with Google translator. Thanks for reading me!
