Celebrity Bowl Hair Style
A bowl Hair Style, also called a pot haircut, or a mushroom cut, is a haircut where the hair is cut short on the sides & back & looking as though someone put a bowl on the head & cut off all the visible hair.
The most widely known bowl cut wearer belongs to Moe Howard, who wore it as part of his “Three Stooges” persona until his death from lung cancer in June, 1975.
Historically this haircut was popular among common people of various nationalities as an simple and comparatively tidy cut by a non-professional. Indeed, it was completed by putting a cooking pot of a fit size to the level of ears, and all hair below the rim was cut or even shaven off. In some cultures it was a traditional type of haircut. In other cultures the bowl cut was viewed as an attribute of wealth, signifying that the wearer could afford to visit a barber. The bowl cut is common among the Amish, and is also seen among some indigenous tribes such as the Yanomamo.
From the late twentieth century on, the haircut resurfaced as a counterculture style credited to the Beatles’ moptop hairstyles & the Ramones’ early stylized bowl cuts. The bowl cut gained popularity in America among teenaged & pre-teen boys in the 1980s & the hairstyle was a veritable fad in some American locales. The popularity of the bowl cut faded in the early/mid-1990s.
