I don’t know about you, but I’ve been seeing a lot of ’80s hair this Spring — the part, the puffiness, the length. There are plenty of variations, but mostly the styles seem to converge around the classic frat villain look popularized in films and television programs of the era. I’ve seen ’80s hair lately in both Washington, DC and New York City. My reaction: odd, but acceptable. Parts in the hair do transcend time, after all. I did resolve, however, to see if I have been hallucinating this rash of ’80s hair, or if I merely travel unconsciously through retro circles.
In good paranoid public safety ’80s style, if YOU have seen ’80s hair, please alert me toll free in the combox.
As was also always the case in the ’80s, the situation is on the verge of crisis. After my spate of sightings, our man in Hollywood told me things out there are getting a little, erm, more serious. Which I discovered meant ridiculous. Gentlemen, I give you John Mayer. Ladies, don’t let this happen to you.
