Hairstyle tenacity: a random thing I like

April 22, 2009

The other day I discovered something I really like: oldish people who still have the badass hairstyle they had at 19. For some reason it makes me like them, like they stood the test of time.

I used to cross paths often with a woman who, in her 60s, had an iron-grey Streisand bouffant. Totally rad.

And then there are the guys like this fella, who always seem to have nicotine-stained hair and the best jean jackets.

That hairstyle, by the way, is called a ducktail or duck’s ass. Here are some more photos of this excellent ‘do (now co-opted by rockabillies).

I hope when I get old there’ll be ancient former hipsters with terrible grey mullets and fauxhawks with lighting bolts shaved around the edges.

At 70, he'll still be wearing a cardigan and blue blockers, but accessorizing with a cane instead of a tiny bike.

Those who are now hipsters will one day be hip-replacement-sters.
