How many times have you seen stories pop up in your newsfeed with headlines like, “this singer doesn’t look like this anymore,” or, “This actress is now a blonde,” or anything else that is unnecessary and ridiculous about their hair?
Usually, they’re about well-known celebrities. But why do we even care about their new hair cut, color or style?
No one writes any articles about me when I go from a brunette to a redhead. Then again, I’m not famous.
But should we really care if someone chops off a foot of her locks or shaves off all of his hair?
Unless there’s a good reason as to why someone dyed their hair (for a role) or cut it (to donate/for a cause), I don’t think it’s a big deal to focus on a celebrity’s new hair cut, color or style.
I’m sure it’s great for paparazzi who want the first shots of someone’s new ‘do, but perhaps a few photos and some captions are enough.
I don’t think a full story is necessary unless you’re doing a comparison of what this celebrity looked like from years past to now.
But maybe that’s just me. Thoughts?
