As gay men, I feel we are entitled to take our hair to extremes – but there is one haircut that goes too far, further than any other haircut has gone before. It transcends gay, and reaches to the highest rainbows in the sky. This particular cut is what happens when a pompadour and a hipster have a baby – I dub thee The Pompster!
I first spotted this horrendous hair while waiting for the C train several months ago, I thought perhaps that the subway rats had mutated, grown wings and perched upon some lowly Brooklynite’s head. After several more City sightings I noticed that the A-List’s Derek Saathoff now is also sporting the Pompster. I imagine he could of been deworming Somalian children in the jungles of Africa and had the hair on the side of his head hacked off by an evil machete toting mercenary; or perhaps he just got a haircut in Chelsea.
You have been warned, unless you want people to mistake you more a tan hairless unicorn stay away from the Pompster.
