I wonder what Kylie thinks about this...
Is Tyga okay? Is Kodak Black? No one seems sure. Both rappers decided to debut new haircuts on social media yesterday and fans are worried. Seriously, both of these haircuts are absurd but the stars seem to be flaunting them for the whole world to see. But they just look bad. I’m sorry, they look bad. Are these guys okay?
It’s common knowledge that fashion is basically controlled by magazines and celebrities. As much as we don’t want to admit it, when we see our favorite celebrities rocking a new look, we automatically start to like it a bit more. If you don’t believe me explain the Juicy Couture sweatsuits and Von Dutch hats of the early 2000s. You can’t. Because those were terrible looks but we all kind of started to like them because celebrities were wearing them.
So, yes, musicians and actors are trendsetters, but sometimes it seems like they overestimate their own influence a bit—or just go completely off the rails in their attempts to start something new. Case in point: Tyga and Kodak Black’s new hairstyles.
Seriously, what were they thinking?
Tyga’s new ‘do appeared first, but fans didn’t know the full extent of the situation until yesterday. The rapper posted a photo to Instagram four days ago that hinted at his new look, but it was admittedly hard to make out exactly what he had done to his hair.
Then, yesterday he posted two more that gave a little more insight into what has going on back there. Finally, @TheShadeRoom posted a video that looks like it was originally a Tyga snapchat showing the full cut and it’s absolutely wild.
