The Times' Kayleen Schaefer letters from the advanced curve of the Bieber bangs bonanza:
Call it the Flip and Switch, the Flow, or the Twitch: the Bieber hairstyle - with sideswept bangs that end about an inch accomplished area the Beatles snipped endemic off - is everywhere. Tim Urban wore it on "American Idol" afore he was voted off in backward April, and Miles Heizer wears it on the NBC appearance "Parenthood" to comedy a absorption teenager. The abstraction is that the front-combed bangs are so continued that they charge be flicked abreast consistently with a accomplished lot of attitude.
A accomplished lot of attitude, and a big crew budget, apparently. The prices the commodity quotes run as aerial as $175, for a "chemical straightening treatment" undergone by 14-year-old Tommy Ledger, who says, "It's affectionate of arresting sometimes. I'm aggravating to skateboard and they appetite to blow my hair." (We're not abiding how abounding boys are absolutely out there bottomward $100 on what looks like "regular haircut, developed out"—but far be it from us to banter Bieber-related trendwatch articles).
In any event, the after-effects of the Bieber bangs aberration complete delightful:
The majority of boys in the sixth-grade chic of Ms. Friedman's son accept the Bieber. "You can't see any eyes," she said, anecdotic the arena at a academy ball she chaperoned recently. "There are no eyes, and there's a lot of flipping."
Tweens! Always flipping! Unable to see! And yet... If alone they knew what crew they were absolutely getting:
"It's absolutely the old Linda Evangelista look, the gamine look," Mr. Blandi said. "The alone aberration is that he wears it pushed to the front."
