Cassie used to have this enviably long, thick cascade of hair. The kind that would probably make a great cushion if you were in the window seat on a plane and wanted to lean your head against the wall and sleep. But now, if Cassie wants to sleep in such a way on a plane, she’ll have to sit on the left side of the aircraft, because she shaved the right side of her head. She posted the photo to Twitter over the weekend and wrote:
Sometimes in life, you need a change … Something deeper than what you thought you were capable of … Something that displays the ‘I don’t give a f—’ attitude that was always present, but never showcased … & something that will shock your mother, but make her call you a ROCK STAR.
Which is why you get your belly button pierced when you’re 14 and call it a day. We are not feeling this look on Cassidy. We never felt it on Alice Dellal, we never liked it on Britney. Call us not progressive. Call us wedded to the norms of societal acceptance. But the main problem isn’t that she’s a girl and society prefers women to have long hair. It’s that we can’t imagine anyone, male or female, looking good with hair covering only one of their brain lobes. And if Cassie is a sign that the style, championed by Alice Dellal, is becoming a trend, we’re afraid anything can catch on. It’s only a matter of time before ladies in this city go clubbing without pants.
