Baby Hair...Hi!

If there is one thing gals like us have loathed our entire lives it's those unsightly clumps of fluff that sprout out just under our luscious locks. BABY HAIR ARGH!. These were literally the epitome of annoyance which is why we were super pleased to see them making it back to the catwalks with A/W15 Givenchy and Stella McCartney and more importantly looking super slick back on our foreheads for S/S15.

Although styling these tiny baby hair's don't come without a bit of controversy, dubbed as 'Chola Victorian' by Givenchy's creative director Riccardo Tisci, it is somewhat seen as derogatory by Mexican/Latina and Black cultures as if the fashion world is trying to adopt 'hood' as a trend and coining urban as it's hail all glory word of the season. But hey, if the fashion world takes inspiration from the real world, and is causing controversy over cultural issues, at least it's saying something right? We say let fashion speak, break down barriers, and if we can all adopt a trend and make it look super rad, let it be!

This is not the first time babyhairs have been around though gals, orignally a 90's 00's trend sported by Brandi, J-Lo and most importantly the queen of baby hair slick, Chilli from TLC. We are super pleased to see yet another super sick trend back with us here in good ol' 2015.

So, as always with fashion how do we make this look work? Making sure we get the right balance between Givenchy's over the top catwalk look and looking super sassy. Well, lets just look towards the total babes that are FKA Twigs and Rita Ora.
