The 100,000 to 150,000 hairs on our scalp have an evolutionary purpose. It is our head’s natural sun-block. It regulates our bodily temperature by trapping heat. But the more important prospect we root on is, it makes us look good. It is our extension of self-expression and fashion.
You remember that oceanic expanse of hair that’s aggressively intruding a personal space? Everybody looks like that in the 80′s; but now, people are more creative in stressing distinction through their hair.
It dazzles me how women can change hairstyles in a blink. One moment my sister’s hair is shoulder short, then on a different place it was way down her back. And I have to beat myself because I know how hair extensions work without researching about it. Women can switch hair colors too, braid it, put a hole in it, cut it shorter than men’s hair, and shape it like a ribbon or a horse.
Men started to care about their hairs as well. It used to be 5 mins lapse time between bath and going out of the house, but now we have to style our hairs. We hated spending so much time for beautification and we won’t risk anybody messing with it.
I spiked my hair upward like a pointed weapon. What experimentation did you do with your hairstyle?
