My New Fro + His Jew Fro: A Photo Essay

July 28, 2010

A while back I was sitting at the dinner table and looked at my roommate Ben and realized that not only had his curly thick hair gotten super long, but also that we pretty much have the same hairdo going on!

Thus the concept was born for a photo documentation of the aforementioned likeness.  So a couple of weeks ago, with a couple of cameras (B&W = film, color = digital) and some friends in tow, Ben and I modeled our matching hair silhouettes.

I should also note that Benny Boom Boom is thinking of cutting off his hair, that’s right, a Big Chop for the BK!  But before going for the major buzz, he is down for a creative, inventive, interim cut.  Suggestions have been the cul-de-sac (ala Krusty the Clown), the “Lyle Lovett“, or a curly-mullet hawk.  If you have any ideas of your own, please leave them in the comments section.

Now without further ado— the pictures after the jump!!  (I also ended with a picture of Ben and I from this past January just so show how much both of our fro’s have grown [together] over the past few months)

And there you have it!  Please remember to leave any suggested styles/hair cuts for Ben in the comments!

    You need to tell Ben to keep his hair as is! And you too girl. I wish I could rock a fro like yours.

    How about the TV antennae? Buzz everything but what is required to pull the hair up into two symmetrical bundles on top. It might improve his brain power!

    Love the photos! Keeping the fro would be ideal, but if a cut is a must I vote for the curly mullet – business in the front, party in the back

    OMG! I absolutely LOVE it. I think I’m in love. Seriously, lol. I don’t have any suggestions for hair cuts, but I do hope that you get some pictures of whatever he chooses =)
