I Scream 4 Hayden Panettiere’s New Haircut

Edited by

‘Tis a cry full of mixed emotions. My first and strongest feeling will always be one of longing for her Heroes hair, when it was lusciously long, bouncing in loose curls. She forwent her streaming tresses about a year ago in exchange for a bob, cutting her ties to innocence, and to my heart. Now she’s fussing with it again, making it even shorter and choppier. I do give her kudos for trying. Perhaps her stance was that long hair is easy, it doesn’t take any balls at all to keep your hair long. But Hayden, the world didn’t love you for having balls. We loved you because you’re gorgeous, and your hair accentuated that. Now you have to wait YEARS (or minutes, depending on the skills of your hair extensionist) to get it back. Let’s take a journey through Hayden Patteniere‘s hair, so you can be forewarned when she baldly boldly  steps onto the killer screen in Scream 4.

” I don’t know what masculine or feminine is. I am just Quinn at the end of the day. If a girl decides it’s not manly..that’s their decision.” Quinn Aston

occupation: artist, designer

The best kind of guys (who like girls) are the ones who are so comfortable in their skin and in touch with their sensitive side that they are willing to deal with the conseqences of standing alone and getting rejected by their peers, like Quinn. Ironically, he is proving the exact point of our previous post, artist Virginie Sommet, in his fearless approach to extricating from “the majority,” and thus making clear how smart “a minority” thinker can be. In fact, Quinn is so at ease with how “not macho” he is that he talks about rummaging through his mom’s closet and coveting her blazers and sequins, as if every high school football captain with his cheerleader captain girlfriend might do this. The saying goes, “there is usually a strong woman behind a strong man.” Aston’s mom, who was a seminal fashion influence for him, had a big afro, wore giant Chanel frames, took him to church every Sunday, and endured her own peer isolation for being stylish in a way that wasn’t part of her social “norm.” Quinn attempted fitting into the basic uniform of saggy pants and oversized tees at his high school, but opted for individuality instead – no girls and good grades, with his signature mohawk, gold knit cardigans and Grace Jones-inspired African-print blazer. I love how Quinn says that it’s hard to find who you are without your cultural idenity these days, everyone “is trying to be different, but the real you isn’t there.” This too mirrors Virginie, who talks about globalization threatening authenticity, we are more and more a mass of H&M and The Gap. Quinn is commanding, not only in his Transformer shoulders and “powerful back and gold,” but mostly in his very rare good energy that comes from self-acceptance and being at peace with the child-like (not childishness) within, like his icon, the great MJ.

If you like Quinn, you might also enjoy Asher Levine or Mario Monroe.
