Ever since Justin Bieber burst onto the scene less than a year ago, everybody immediately noticed a handful of things: His dynamic voice, his easy charisma and, of course, his hair. Bieber's haircut — a simple mid-length creation that revolves around his forward-combed bangs — has become the stuff of pop culture, teen dream legends. He easily joined the likes of Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Neil Patrick Harris, Nick Jonas and others as having iconic teen-star hair. And according to the New York Times, it has become a popular cut among haircare professionals (though at least one of those hairdressers says that it's a cut whose name must not be spoken).
The thing that stands out in that Times article is the detail that a high school freshman in Vancouver paid $175 to get his curly hair chemically straightened specifically for the Bieber cut. It's a plan that seemed to work out for him. "Girls always play with it in class," the 14-year-old said in an interview. "It's kind of frustrating sometimes. I'm trying to skateboard and they want to touch my hair."
But as anybody who watched "The Diary of Justin Bieber" knows, getting a handle on "The Bieber" is relatively simple. In a much-passed-around clip from the show, Bieber wipes his wet hair with a towel and then proceeds to aggressively blow it forward as it dries, without the assistance of a stylist or any other professional. Judging from his dexterous use of the hair dryer, he is clearly comfortable with his ability to produce his signature locks every day.
