The year was 1980; the place, Union City, California. American figure skater Dorothy Hamill was a superstar, as was the bowlcut she wore. I remember because I rocked it, hard. 🙂 Well … as hard as a kindergartner could, ha ha!
What once was old is new again. Ladies, the bowlcut is baaaack.
I think I’ll pass this time, though. I thought it was quite fetching when I was five, but now? Been there, done that.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
Return of the Bowl Haircut
by Megan McIntyre, Daily Makeover
One glance at this retro round bob probably has you wondering what could possibly prompt chic young ladies like Agyness Deyn, Estelle, Parker Posey and Christina Ricci to don a short hairstyle that gives off such a distinct whiff of 70’s cheese.
We definitely never thought we’d be seeing a good chunk of Hollywood embrace the rounded bangs, but we’re even more shocked to say that we kind of like the look.
It’s got a slightly sexy, a little bit brooding, definitely retro vibe that keeps our eyes entranced.
Part of this reason, at least according to celebrity hairstylist Sam Brocato, is that the cut practically begs you to stare at its wearer’s face.
