Coif Watch

Dear Jeepers:

You've mentioned recently that short, messy boy-cuts are on their way back. Really? I'm trying to decide what to do next with my hair, but should I follow advice given out on a suspiciously tongue-in-cheek website? I mean, you could just be joking, for all I know.

Tell me where you really stand. And do you have any evidence to back up your claims?

Dear Undecided,

We have just endured (or enjoyed) an unprecedented stretch of No Hair Style Whatsoever: May 2000 - April 2006. All attention has been on boobs, lipgloss, gorgeous clothes, and shoes, shoes, shoes, with no collective brainwaves left over for hair.

But our long, national nightmare is over. By this summer, a few brave souls (maybe you?) will finally lead the way toward more structured hair. And what better antidote to long floppy nothing than super-short, crazy, bad girl cuts? Practically shaved in the back, with long messy bangs, that's the way forward, comrades. This will be followed by all sorts of other haircuts that are full-on, unabashedly about shape--like superstraight bangs, bowl cuts, and yes, mullets for the bourgeoisie. So fun!

(The punk cuts will swing the pendulum back to more ladylike Marilyn Monroe looks by next summer.)

Yrs utterly sincerely and with our hair in a bun,

If I were brave, or had straight hair, I would go for 'the punk'. Instead I will dye my curly mop red, and cut a straight fringe in it that I will have to straighten everyday bnecause otherwise it will stick up in the air. Though, that might work...
