“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.”
The guy with the big hair was walking toward me in Qingxi and I realized I couldn’t risk missing the shot by using my usual “shoot-from-the-hip” sniping method. Instead I trotted out some of my legendary crappy Chinese and politely asked him if I could take his photo. I figured his “look” was a desperate cry for attention, so odds were good that he would agree to an American taking his photo. I was right. He stood and posed for about 8 frames. And no, he’s not into cosplay, this is his everyday appearance. I’ve seen a lot of male Chinese hair stylists with the big, colorful hair.
