Justin Bieber’s Hairstyle Sweeps Nation, High Cost To Tween Boys

Justin Bieber May 6 (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a Nation that is ridden with poverty, and a crashing economy, perhaps one of the very many luxuries that seem, well frankly silly, is the fact that tween boys all over are willing to pay up to $175 bucks to have their hair cut ‘just like Justin Bieber’s, but don’t tell my mom’. That’s what these young teen boys are whispering to salon owners everywhere, and apparently these parents are footing the bill.

The popularity of Justin Bieber has caused riots on more than one occasion and has boys everywhere wanting to be ‘just like Justin’, although they’d never admit it out loud. The boys are bringing in pictures of the tweenage rock star to hairdressers everywhere, and secretly asking for the Bieber-do. The shyer ones just try to describe what they want without ever actually mentioning the ‘B’ name. Kayleen Schaefer of “The Times” reports “Call it the Flip and Switch, the Flow, or the Twitch: the Bieber hairstyle - with sideswept bangs that end about an inch past where the Beatles snipped theirs off - is everywhere. Tim Urban wore it on “American Idol” before he was voted off in late April, and Miles Heizer wears it on the NBC show “Parenthood” to play a brooding teenager. The idea is that the front-combed bangs are so long that they must be flicked aside constantly with a whole lot of attitude.”

Bieber’s hair has become so popular that one ad campaign for his new show on MTV called “The Diary of Justin Bieber” is simply Justin Bieber blow drying his hair, and the video is all over YouTube. In retrospect, I remember when it was a certain $175 dollar pair of tennis shoes that every teenager simply HAD to have. Every generation has their “Justin Bieber” moments, but then again, those shoes lasted much longer than a haircut, and seemed to serve more purpose, at least in my mind, but what do I know? A fifteen dollar layered cut and a scrunchie gets me through my day.
