    My attention draws to the rainbow hair before the lack of brows!

    Interesting and daring look. I wonder what the inspiration is?

    interesting how the no-brow brings so much more attention to the bangs and hair.

    This photograph is stunning! I love the bits of different colour in her hair. The little swirls on her shirt are pretty, they finish off the photograph perfectly.

    Not sure about the no hair look but some people believe cutting your hair and let it regrow it’s like being born again. But maybe he just does it for the look.

    There is nothing about this that looks nice. You have removed one of the most expressive parts of the human face. This looks more like a grooming session gone wrong.

    Disgraceful, really… who wants to look like a seal?

    Well, call me a broken record ( vinyl), but Klaus Nomi again. He was the first brow-less person I saw, 1979–for all you kids out there.

  25. Maia

    August 31, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    I think the browless thing is strange to me precisely because it is making a statement about being expressionless – and that is something I just cannot get behind, as much as I respect anyone who expresses his/herself… but to express your desire to not express anything at all just goes a little over my head!

    love the color. not a fan of the no brows look, always looks rather sickly to me.

    Have to say, this series from Japan… Not sure I get what sense of style prevails there… Europe I get, but here??

    interesting look for a young man. banal? certainly not.
    seemingly every turn of tokyo streets yields yet more amazing shots.

    You can see the faint lines where she draws the brows in sometimes. Many Asians I know do this because they feel their brows are not even enough or long enough to shape how they want them ( fine line) In this way with her blunt fringe it makes her eyes stand out otherwise with the light hair and thick dark brows we would look more at her brows than her eyes!
    Love the hair colour by the way- very cool!

    Lovely! I see just as much expression if not more. Perhaps it is more self expressive than people are used to. Klaus Nomi did do it back then and I remember. Around that time I shaved mine to short little stubs. Seemed they would never grow back. Keep that in mind if you try it. Play and have fun! Maybe people trying things on purpose can teach us to be more accepting of people who just don’t have hair or brows naturally or through the effects of illness or medication. It would be sad to say that someone looked the a seal after chemotherapy.

    I just never get used to the no brow-trend. I find brows to be one of the most important part of framing a face. Anywayz, I love the haircolours!

    Otherworldly! Perhaps more startling was reading that this is a man! Of course, the realist inside me is thinking “Oh,he’s going to regret this years from now when his brows never quite grow back…”

    I can’t decide what’s odder (then interesting): the lack of brows, the straight colourful hair or all those strings. Can’t get my eyes off of him.

    Love the hair! I’m totally into in the no-brow-extraterrestrial look. Wonderful portrait.

    Fashion is boundless, sense of boldness and sometimes beyond common aesthetic appreciation. Weirdos are the pioneers!

    Nothing half-ass about this look, huh? He reminds me of some of my more Nordic friends who have dark hair and very pale brows. The photo also supports your earlier statement about mixing kimono and other traditional aesthetics with modern ones. Great pictures from this trip to Japan.

    So wait, let me get this straight, you “don’t get” Harajuku, but this interests you?

    (for the record, I don’t get either)

    I would hazard a guess that 99% of the people saying how interesting this is are just kissing the ring. This is terrifying, and intensely affected to boot.

    I only say this to you, Scott, because I respect you enough to be honest with you.

    Like many readers, I didn’t at first realize this was a man, not a woman. Seems a little geisha like, no facial hair. And then the rainbow hair on his head. Stark, surprising, and somehow fun.

    i really don’t think japanese youth are hoping that people “get” their look- and i’m pretty sure outlandishly affected is the look he was going for— i think he is beautiful (though yes, if he jumped out of a bush at night i’d scream). thanks for posting as always!!

    Great shot, Sart. This is groovy…..

    Ok. I have seen Manic Panic hair color before. Maybe a million times. This is a nice photograph, definitely. But I am having no luck figuring why people seem to think the Japanese series of photos is so daring or different. Honestly it looks exactly like many photos of the kids in Japan with their sort of typical alternative look. They like to overdo it. As for the browless thing, first we have seen it in lots of places, on this blog in fact, and in several fashion shows, and its cool. But its not amazingly original.

    What a pretty boy, cute freckles ;)
    I used to hate the no brows look but i love it now its a kind of haunting beauty that only a few can pull off, myself excluded i would look like a sad potato. Japanese fashion like this is not for everyone, but then again what is?
