Would You Embrace the Return of the Bowl Cut?

There's been buzz over the past few months about the return of the bowl cut, ever since New York Fashion Week Fall 2009 when models from 3.1 Phillip Lim were featured in sleek, bobbed versions of this old-school haircut. Also around that time, both Rihanna and Mary J. Blige were seen dabbling with the style.

And most recently, I spotted a straight-not-round version on this young lady, modeling this scarf for Urban Outfitters. This isn't your kindergarten school picture kind of photo, to say the least. We're talking about a modernized, Vidal Sassoon-esque chic style. You weren't loving a recent mullet moment, but would you embrace this potential future trend?

I like to keep up with the latest fashions, but I do draw a line for some things. Aah, no!! Not for me.

This might look good on some people, but I don't think any kind of "boy" haircut would ever look good on my heart shaped face, i.e. pixie, bowl cut, mullet... ha ha

You're kidding, right? Did anyone ever embrace this bowl cut? The name is scary enough - how do you like my new bowl cut? I'll keep the bowl for my soup and/or salad, not my hair.

The bowl cut only looked hot on Jim Carrey on 'Dumb and Dumber'. That's it.

I think I was 12 when I had that haircut. I would never do that again, but some really cool people can make this work.

Agreed with soapbox... if someone can pull it off, then cool. Not me though! (I have curly hair :P)

I put yes, because I like it on models and Mary J. Blige. Its one of those hairstyles that suit 1/1000 and even then it looks a bit awkward at some angles.
