Are you a beauty hipster?
So what do you reckon? Do you think you’re a beauty hipster? And I’m not talking about an organic-chia-seed-milk-drinking (is that even a thing? I’m way too mainstream to know if that’s actually a thing. I think I just made it up), flannel-wearing, ironic-T-shirt-owning hipster.
No sir, a beauty hipster is one who recklessly throws the beauty rulebook far out the window and embraces every new and kooky beauty trend like the early twenty-something man of today embraces his first full-face beard. The beauty hipster’s choices are not often the kind you see on the street every day, and are usually something non-beauty hipster’s gaze at and think: “Man, she is SO cool. I could never pull that off.”
So here are a few signs that may just point to the fact that you, my friend, are a beauty hipster:
THERE ISN’T A PASTEL HAIR COLOUR YOU WOULDN’T TRY
But you’ve been doing it since wayyyy before Nicole Richie and Kesha started dabbling in it.
YOUR NAILS ARE YOUR CANVAS
Zooey Deschanel’s Instagram feed is your crack and you can’t wait for the day when your nails are long enough to shape into works of art.
YOU’RE NOT AFRAID OF AN UNDERCUT
All that hair was weighing you down anyway.
PINK AND RED LIPSTICK IS A LITTLE TOO BORING FOR YOU
Why stick to the classics when you can rock a green, blue or even black?
YOU CAN ROCK AN AFRO
Beyoncé who? Solange’s ‘fro is your spirit animal and, as far as you’re concerned, the bigger yours is, the better.
HAIR ACCESSORIES ARE YOUR THING
Flower Garland? Check. 1950s-esque headscarf? Yes ma’am. Unnecessary number of chain and beaded headbands? Obviously.
What other trends do beauty hipsters rock? Would you ever try one of these looks?
