What I Didn't Know My Hair Said...

I already mentioned the blog "Stuff White People Like" in a previous post. But there is a new post and it talks about my hair cut, (which I also blogged about) well at least my bangs or fringe as I and the British like to call them. I never knew my hair cut said so much about me.
Post #104 Girls with Bangs

If you see a white woman and you are trying to figure out whether she is liked or just merely tolerated by white people, the best thing you can do is get a quick look at her haircut. It is a known fact that white people love women who wear their hair with bangs that hang straight down.

A number of very popular white women have worn this hairstyle including Joni Mitchell, Jane Birkin, Jenny Lewis and every girl ever photographed by Vice Magazine or the Cobrasnake. (Note: it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with these two things as they are both beloved by cool white people. Follow up note: these same things are hated by cooler white people).

Many people associate this type of haircut with children and people looking for the most efficient way to get hair out of their eyes. But for white people, this simple haircut makes a bold declaration by saying that the wearer is artistic, deep, and has probably dated a guy in a band you like. Of course, as with many things loved by white people, simple often means expensive and these haircuts usually cost upwards of $100.

It is essential for you to know this haircut is more than a mere fashion statement– it is an important cultural marking. Throughout the world, many cultures feature ceremonies to announce that a girl has become a woman. For white people, the haircut-with-bangs is an important symbol that a female has completed her transformation from a nerdy girl to a cool woman. In fact, if you went to high school with a nerdy white girl who moved to a big city, there is a good chance she will show up to your high school reunion with this haircut.

When you are introduced to a group of white people, it’s a good idea to befriend the girl with the bangs. She’s probably the most popular.

It is nice to know what my hair says about me. Especially the part about "probably dated a guy in a band you like" it is like the guy wrote it about me. If I did not already have bangs I would definitely get them now.


  1. Wow, I had no idea that bangs said so much about a white girl! :) Unfortunately, I look horrible with bangs, so I'll never be able to be as cool as you. :(

  2. The music is almost as important as the post, sometimes more!

  3. Good to know. It is a very stylish look for you, and I've seen a lot of different looks on you. Also, I clicked to read the actual blog... the comments that followed were not as good or as clever as the blog. Why are some people so retarded?
