There is this old saying, maybe you’ve heard of it, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” This saying can often lead to trouble or hilarious times, or both. While in Australia, I have applied this saying when it comes to the world of fashion and grooming. I am a man that has seen a wide variety of styles. I have been in Georgetown and seen the outrageously loud Polo shirts with colors that would confuse a rainbow. I have seen the purple male scarf. Here, the colors are kept simple and the hair does all the talking.
The faux hawk is my valiant attempt to take on Australian fashion. It is part extreme, part sensational, and part unpredictable, with sprinklings of valor. With notable celebrities such as David Beckham sporting the dew, the faux hawk is a style not to be messed with.
I have tried the faux hawk on numerous occasions, each time achieving better results. I believe it is important to try all aspects of a culture. Eating the cuisine is fine and all, but you have not really experienced a culture until you’ve changed your hairdo.
If a didgeridoo is too expensive to take back, then the faux hawk will be my gift from overseas.
