So, for maybe six months, CousinBean has been sporting this new DQ-inspired swirl of hair on his head. I will say that the resemblance is something of a cross between Mr. T and the top of an ice cream cone.
But El 3atal called it 100% correctly. The hairstyle is exactly like Big Boy… you know Shoney’s Big Boy. Here’s a picture of the stylin’ cool hair-do from the plastic mascot outside a restaurant.
We couldn’t figure out why anyone would want to have the same hairstyle as this guy. After all, the restaurant merged with Shoney’s in the 80s and the Big Boy went out of style. And even before that, it’s not like he’s a fashion icon. And yet, young men world-wide have been sporting his ‘do. Tonight, El 3atal found the reason (and shared it). It seems that Orlando Bloom did an ad for Hugo Boss’ Orange cologne with the same Big Boy-inspired locks. As you can see in the picture below, it’s easily understandable. After all, if Orlando Bloom does it, then if I do I can get the girl (s), right?
All I can say is, forget hat-head… it’s so 90s. The 2000s are all about…
Happy Ice-cream Head!
