Asian Hairstyles For Men
A few years back, before I knew any better about finding a good Asian Male Barber, I brought my little brother to the local Supercuts for a quick trim. It was an older lady giving the haircuts that day. As my brother plopped down on the barber stool, she sweetly asked him, “How would you like to get your haircut done today mister?”
“How would you like to get your haircut done today mister?”
My brother smiles and pulls out his cellphone with a photo to use as an example. But what he said next shocked me!
“Make me look like Ryan Gosling”
I was shook! What did I just hear come out of his mouth? You just can’t whip out a picture of a white guy and tell some lady to make you look like that. Can you imagine if some black kid brings in a photo of a white boy and says that he wants to look like that. That’s how you turn into Michael Jackson. Or in this case, a Asian kid with an identity crisis 10 years down the line. Boy, you outta your mind!?
I gave him a stern lecture after that. He needed more Asian male role models to build his identity off of. I know he’s just a young kid and wanted to channel some of that swagger from Ryan Gosling, but looking like him won’t get you that swagger. It’s the mindset that makes the hairstyle sexy, not the other way around. The next weekend, I sent him to hangout with his Uncle David – that man is a womanizer.
I got some crap from some of my female friends whenever I tell this story. They say its nothing or that I’m over reacting. No way. I am a Strong Asian man I know it.
