this is something I've been wondering about for quite a while now. Hair styles of this kind are often seen in ancient art, primarily minoan, I believe.
Now, the thing that gets me wondering are those loose strands in front. This is not the best example I've seen for that hairstyle, but it was the only one I could come up with in a hurry. The strands I'm referring to are sections from the back that are draped over the ears towards the front.
Why does this seem so strange and unusual?
I mean, the concept of taking a strand from behind and draping it over the ear isn't so absurd, is it? It's not as if you'd require any special tools for this, everyone has ears and a lot of people have hair long enough to be able to do this in theory. So how come you never see it done in real life today? Is it just that no one thinks about doing this? Ramble, ramble...
I actually think it looks pretty, if you've got those lovely snaky s-waves.
Do you find this hair-over-ears-thing strange? Do or would you wear your hair like this?
