It is stylish these days for guys to comb their hair in a spiky fashion, using lots of gel to make their hair stand up. The resemblance to porcupines can be uncanny at times. There was this teenager in front of me who turned his head suddenly and his “quills” poked into my face.
This style is not actually that new. Punks had been colouring their hair and using tons of gel to make them stand. The current trend is to go for a flamboyant, “big hairdo” kind of look rather than to turn hair into hard needles. Fortunately for me, or I would have been disfigured. It is obvious that I don’t dig this style. This cat likes his fur soft and natural, as fuss-free as possible.
