A recent article in the Evening Standard (click link) newspaper reported on the spread of the “Jedhead”. This is the sticky-uppy hairstyle sported by Jedward, the twins from the X Factor. The article claimed the “style crosses boundaries of age, gender, sexuality and taste”. I have no problem accepting the first three in the list but can’t accept the last. All those sporting the Jedhead share the same taste: bad.
I have yet to see evidence that this hairstyle has infected the legal profession but a bottle of champagne to the first solicitor, barrister or costs draftsman who can produce a picture of themselves about to enter court displaying such a haircut. Horsehair wigs don’t count (unless heavily gelled and sticking up).
