Hair Care (or Lack Thereof...)

Let's snark about hair, kids.

We'd be lying if we said we hadn't noticed the latest red carpet rage: bedhead. We'd also be lying if we said we didn't have opinions about this. While we've finally accepted that 2009 will be sartorially remembered as the year where nobody brushed their hair, there's a spin-off of that trend we're not too happy about. Since finals are upon us and we're quite tired, let's keep this brief.

You know those things you see in a store that make you wonder, "Did the designer forget something? Like, to finish the garment? Run out of dye halfway through, perhaps?" That's ombre, otherwise known as the color pattern normally associated with grade-school forays into tie-dye (not that we don't love a good grade-school craft project. Don't even question it.). While the rest of us are watching our pennies by eating out less or reverting back to freshman year booze brands, it seems that the fashion world has decided to simply stop hair maintenance and call it "ombre hair" the latest trend.

There's almost too much to say about this. Juxtaposing feminine, lady-like pieces with tougher pieces is one thing, but this is just dumb. Since when did lazy become fashionable? Downgrade.
