Lesbian hair makes a comeback (hey, stop snickering)


Ahhh, lesbian hair. That much-maligned

subject of punch lines everywhere. Historically, gay women’s

hairstyles haven’t always had the best reputation. And I’m not even

going to mention the dreaded M-word. While I have no problem with business

in the front, party in the back when it comes to your personal life,

I refuse to accept it on your head. But I believe we’ve turned a corner

here in the hair club for women. Why else would so many stars be rocking

the lesbian hair of late?

I’m not just talking seventh-grade-gym-teacher hair either. I speak of all the chic, often cropped

cuts the ladies of TV and film have been sporting everywhere. It’s

gotten to the point that even seemingly straight stars have started

suffering from lesbian twin syndrome. I’m dying for Women’s Murder

and Bionic Woman

to do a crossover episode so these two can scream: “Lesbian Twins

activate! Form of — haircut!”

So with that, let’s examine,

and of course rate, the trend of lesbian locks.
