Should YOU Shave Half of Your Hair to Follow a Trend?

Here is Carmen Electra.   
This look has gotten a lot of negative press and responses from people, but personally I don't think it's that bad. I think it accentuates the face, particularly the eyes. The asymmetry created by the cut creates a sense of eccentricity. Most things that are beautiful are odd in my opinion.

Like every trend you have to ask yourself if this trend will work for you, your body type, or in this case the shape of your face. This cut is extreme, unless you are 100% sure DO NOT attempt for obvious reasons.

 Can you imagine how you would grow back the area affected by this fashion trend? You would look like a freak. I want to know if it was Britney Spears or Rihanna who inspired this trend. Take a look at these pics and let me know what you think:)

People are saying that this trend ended in 2009, but I think 2009 was just the beginning. Fashion is about risk taking and I applaud all who try something new.

Here is Cassie, I think she has become the THE person for this fashion trend. She is gorgeous. Hair should be fun right?
Here is Cassie again, this is how her hair looks when it is up. It's a bit weird looking, and the cute yellow nail color isn't helping. I attribute this weirdness to a bad hair styling day. She should have had a side pony to give the "up do" a whimsical aesthetics.
For those of you who do not want to shave your hair, but appreciate the asymmetrical beauty of this look, there is hope for you. My friend Kiya did not shave her hair but instead she braided it along the sides. This is similar to the original look because it is structural and it plays upon asymmetry.

Here is a similar look that I have found for men. I just thought it would be appropriate to mention for the other sex. Proceed with cation that's all I am saying. That's all for today.


  1. this gives me hope! i wanted to do this for soo long. as well as die my hair blue.. maybe one day i will

  2. i like trends which are risky and only work for certain people. You can't pull this off subtly, you have to...shave it all off. Its big and loud and most people won't like it. That's why i like it!
    -ME :)

  3. i would love to shave my hair off i think its hot but i love my boring hair lol plus im scared shite haha love lace and strips ❤.
