YOURLifeChoices member Nautilus has noted the resurgence of the ‘ghastly’ wet hair look for men. It seems as though history (even bad fashion history) will continue to repeat itself. What do you think? Are you looking forward to the return of Brylcreem and pomade?
We human beings are so suggestible. A few years ago the shops were full of ridiculous pointy-toed shoes. Then the quiff was back, followed shortly by leggings being worn as trousers and animal prints. Now people are decorating their houses with old pay-phones, broken typewriters and (inexplicably) bird stickers.
But never, ever, not even on that day when I saw a girl wearing tissue boxes on her feet instead of shoes, did I imagine the wet look hair would return. It smells bad, it looks terrible, and, as Nautilus pointed out, all that hair gel is a nightmare to get out of your clothes. So, fashion conscious (and sane) citizens of Australia, unite!
Implore the young sheep around you to sidestep this trend. If you need more ammunition than the weight of your word, why not direct them to read this article about a young British father of four who set his head on fire after using too much hairspray?
Do you enjoy seeing fashion trends return, or should some things be left in the past? And what’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve seen someone wearing recently?
