Please Don't Let Grau Wal Hair Jewelry Be the Next Big Thing

Christian_bale_american_psycho Certain fashion trends need to die. The return of popped collars? Horribly reminiscent of American Psycho era high society serial killers. Tissue paper thin jersey anything? Guaranteed to make anyone look lumpy and dowdy. Really long and pointy toes on shoes? If freakishly long and misshapen feet are your thing, all the power to you.

Some fashion trends, though, should never be born...

Specifically, I am referring to Grau Wal braided hair jewelry:

Anna Rybakov and Eve Cahill began making their own synthetic hair jewelry, and, with the encouragement of their friends, decided to go into business together to make it for the masses in February of this year. I hate their friends.

Trendhunter may say that the pieces have "instant Victorian appeal", but I say that they make the wearer look like they just came back from a barbie doll hunting party. I don't want to judge you if that's your thing — what do I know about the state of the popularity of the scalping of children's toys? — but this just doesn't do it for me.

On the other hand, the design duo does use Aqua Net hairspray as their finishing stiffener, which has always reminded me of grandmas, and I do like grandmas...

I was really hoping that it would be jewelry FOR my hair, and then I would say, "Well I hope it DOES BECOME THE NEXT BIG THING."

And then I see it's jewelry MADE FROM hair.

Oh, well now that's just unfortunate.

Monday I just saw STIRRUP PANTS in Old Navy, STIRRUP PANTS! I had flashback to untucked shirts, shaker sweaters and pink tinted glasses.
Can hair jewelry be far behind?

So when I first read this head-line I was thinking "hair jewlery" as in tacky sparkly things you put in your hair...not BRAIDED HAIR YOU WEAR WITH FREAKING GOLD LOBSTER CLAW CLASPS!!!

It makes me feel icky to see that "bracelet" photo. What friend encourages another friend to venture on with this idea. Like yeah, it's perfectly normal to wear braided hair. Reminds me of The Craft.

I too thought it was jewelry for your hair but then saw that it is actually jewelry made OF hair and that icked me out severely but now i'm more distressed by the comment about the stirrup pants. I need to go lie down before I start freaking out.

Stirrup Pants?!?!

Could slouch socks be close at hand?
