Hairy deal

I love how 1970s this is: Names for hairstyles for African-American men, according to an old issue of Ebony Magazine.

The comments get snippy and weird almost instantly, but the photos themselves are what's fun here. The dude with The Perfecto looks like he's aspiring to be an early Mr. T, while I don't even wanna know how long it took the kid whose hairdo is called Blow-Up to get ready in the morning. That's some seriously symetrical hair, right there. (Via Metafilter.)

The "Flattop" looks like a Lionel Jefferson special, to me.
