Actually, technically it’s a “perm”, and 3 does not a trend make….I hope.
Whoever it was that told these three Jrock superstars that this particular hair-style was a good idea…. Well. It wasn’t a good idea. And they should cease and desist before it catches on any more than it already has.
(Thankfully, RUKI of the GazettE has already gone public with his reform. No more perm.)
…The fact that it spread to two people is pretty incredible…
…and the fact that it has already infected the fashions of THREE people is absolutely worthy of quarantine.
(Fortunately fashions and hair-styles of superstar GACKT never seem to last longer than the length of a single. We may be safe. For now.)
Now, see. I am an extremely open person when it comes to fashions and hairstyles from the Japanese rock and sub-cultures. Usually I think they are really quite cool– and if at first they seem unusual, after a while they start to grow on me. Who here remembers GACKT’s Diabolos tour when he had corn-rows and ringlets? I do. It was awesome.
Why can’t I get used to seeing this side-saddle-perm, then? I think the answer lies in the question. Comments, clarification, and input highly appreciated.
