Long live the Jheri curl. There's something to admire about a person sticking to his or her fashion guns and maintaining the same unwavering look year after year, decade after decade, regardless of the fickle vagaries of fashion. I saw this guy at the bus stop the other day, still sporting the Jheri curl, which he presumably adopted back when it was new and cool, on his now graying hair. (He also wore a rather snazzy old-school gold medallion.) Will the Jheri curl have a retro-renaissance like other 80s styles? Has it already returned to more fashion-forward corners of the country? (It's hard to imagine, but I couldn't imagine the return of the flat-top fade either.) I wanna know.
