In the old days we used to use egg whites or elmer's glue
Hmmm, didn't that smell? Do some go to the salon for their bas ass look. That would be as funny as buying brand new pants already torn for you, you know the whole manufactured thing.
Sounds much cooler than the mullet, (I know you had one) but not exactly business in the front, party in the back. Speaking of this, how do people even still get outdated cuts. I can understand wanting one, change is hard, if it ain't broken don't fix it and all, but seriously, Where
do they find these hair sylists unscrupulous enough to actually do it for them? Crazy town.
In the day, smell didn't matter, it wasn't a fashion show. Boston actually still has a really big punk/harcore/rock/indie scene, so the mohawk never really goes out of style.
Mullets on the other hand were out of style before they were in style. Some of the indie kids sport them for the irony factor like trucker hats, but. . ugh!
There are some "fashion punks" around these days, but I'm an old war horse. . .I change my look every 3 months or so, so it is inevitable that the same hair comes around again.
The idea of going to a salon for something we used to (and still do) with a cheap set of clippers and some glue is pretty funny to me, though those that do it can be picked out of the crowd at a Blood for Blood show a mile away.
The best is running into someone you haven't seen for a year or so, and watching that look of unrecognition come across their face. .incognito.
Do they not have a DIY punk/hardcore scene in Canada? Or are you folks too well adjusted?
The new mohawk is the 'combover' in which you shave the middle of your head, grow out one or both sides, and comb it over like an old man. .Just watch, the hipster kids will start wearing that next.. . .heehee. .
