I saw so many when i ventured into nearest city today. The side partings are so severe on some of them they have to hairspray them into place.

I saw one girl, who's long hair was combed over from top of her ear.

Such cricked necks they walk with heads at right angles to bodies!!!

FrannyandZooey Sat 27-Jun-09 19:59:47

LemonDifficult Sat 27-Jun-09 19:59:47

I was thinking EXACTLY this today. It's mad, just looks so awkward. Where's it come from?!

QOD Sat 27-Jun-09 20:00:23

yep, the New Romantic look is back!

IDidntRaiseAThief Sat 27-Jun-09 20:02:17

what will happen if they tilt their heads the other way tho!

I have not noticed this. However I have observed that they hold their handbags in a most unusual manner - in the crease of their elbows, a bit like a teapot.

Is this the private schoolgirl look or something different? You can tell which school the kids go to around here either by the crazy hair-flip or the Jack Wills top. Such bizarre and narrow uniforms teens choose for themselves after moaning about the stifling of creativity a school blazer causes. [/wry smile]

It's defintely a posh kid 'do' you see them at the races like it - big comb-over, huge handbag, teapot style and either a raa raa skirt or skinny jeans, but they are all individuals of course wink

IkeaSnake Sat 27-Jun-09 20:15:01

this is a posh sloaney thing SE based afaik

IDidntRaiseAThief Sat 27-Jun-09 20:21:35

why they doing it in plymouth then smile

cornsilk Sat 27-Jun-09 20:23:16

They are doing it in Manchester as well. It's yoof culture.

cornsilk Sat 27-Jun-09 20:23:41

(The teapot thing I mean.)

LemonDifficult Sat 27-Jun-09 20:24:34

Round my way, Edinburgh, this is a look sported by all those girls who work in hairdressers but don't yet cut hair. (Presumably they'd need better all-round vision for that)

IDidntRaiseAThief Sat 27-Jun-09 20:25:31

lol !!!

smugmumofboys Sat 27-Jun-09 20:27:49

It's out and proud in Cheshire! Louds of my students sport this look - even the boys. It does look a bit daft.

<wizened old hag>

Saw it in Leeds City Centre today, had to try very hard not to stare in astonishment. I have worn some weird stuff in my time, but it looks SOOOOO odd!

popsycal Sat 27-Jun-09 20:34:05

been around fir at least a year uo here.....

nappyaddict Sat 27-Jun-09 20:35:22

I saw a boy sporting it yesterday. Looked ridiculous. All his hair was basically over his face. God knows how he could see to eat his dinner!

All the girls round here wear skinny jeans, denim skirts, ra ra skirts or long tshirts/cardigans with leggings.

CurryMaid Sat 27-Jun-09 20:35:32

Oh I saw this at the bus stop the other day and did wonder.

popsycal Sat 27-Jun-09 20:38:38

are we taking the 'emo frimge'???

PortAndLemon Sat 27-Jun-09 20:43:01

I've been reading this thread title all day thinking "huh?"; then I looked at my niece's new photos on Facebook and wow! I see what you mean now... (SE based but definitely not posh, so it must be spreading...)

BodenGroupie Sat 27-Jun-09 20:49:45

Uugh, tis a sign of posh wannabe - DD1 does it and I hate it - seems to show the greasy bit of her hair whilst she thinks it qualifies her for a place in the Jack Wills catalogue.

IkeaSnake Sat 27-Jun-09 20:50:13

I find my self thinking "Oh fgs brush your hair"

serin Sat 27-Jun-09 23:33:49

You should worry!
7yr old DS does this hmm "But Mum it's dead cool".
