Bowl cuts are making a comeback as the latest fashion trend
It's amazing that all it takes is one famous and good looking person to make something cool. Seriously, how many times have we seen a celebrity rock up to a glitzy and star-studded red carpet event, wearing something completely bizarre (which you or I would be derided for even thinking about wearing) and somehow manage to pull it off through the sheer force of their charisma?
The right person can rehabilitate fashion trends, hairstyles, and cosmetics in ways that the rest of us can only dream of. What's more, they can inspire others to follow in their footsteps and ape their style.
Indeed, for years, the bowl cut has been seen by hairdressers as the absolute nadir of haircuts: making people think about the Three Stooges and Jim Carrey in Dumb and Dumber.
But now it seems as though none other than Charlize Theron (who managed to make a shaved head cool again in Mad Max: Fury Road) is rocking a bowl cut, and let's be honest, she looks pretty damn good with one.
The actress uploaded a picture of her new hairdo to her personal Instagram account, while filming the 9th Fast and Furious film. A number of her followers took the comments to compliment her on pulling it off, including Mad Men actress January Jones, who wrote: "This hair is next level good. But would only look good on you 😍"
As a result of this picture, a number of other Instagram users have attempted to pull off Charlize's unique look, and have now begun to proudly upload the pictures of their new haircuts.
To be honest, I have a feeling that Charlize probably employs an extremely expensive and skilled stylist: so if you're hoping that putting a colander on your head and snipping away with scissors will be enough, then maybe you should think twice before you cut.
