The “Bowl Cut”: When Dudes Were Dudes

Ahhh, the “Bowl Cut”. For a while there in the early 90’s every dude I knew had one, and there was almost an unspoken hierarchy based on how yours was cut. The longer the hair on top was, and the more “skinned” the hair underneath was, the more “badass” it was. Hence the evolution from the “Bowl Cut” to the “Flop” that all the skaters rocked with their “Vision Street Wear” t-shirts.

Lately, celebrities from Lady Gaga and Rhianna have been sporting variations of the “Bowl Cut” which begs the ultimate question- Isn’t Justin Bieber’s “signature” hairdo nothing more than an overgrown, poorly maintained “Bowl Cut”?
