The popular cut might be more dangerous than you think

Word on the street is, the ‘Emo cut’ can lead to a case of lazy eye, this according to ibtimes.com. An Optometrist out of Australia has come forward with some information that may have some of todays youth making their way over to their local barber shop today. The article refers to Justin Bieber several times, as an example of an Emo cut; except, Bieber never had an Emo cut.
Optometrist Andrew Hogan said Emo-style haircuts that dangle over one eye can cause lazy eye by preventing the nerve pathway from the eye to the brain from developing properly. The damage is more detrimental to the younger generations whose eyes are still in the developmental phase of growth.
Everything in Mr. Hogans statement all seems to make sense, except for the Justin Bieber part. I can’t say I’m the biggest Bieber fan, but I can say that I’ve seen the kids haircuts plastered all over every major news outlet thousands upon thousands of times, and Bieber didn’t have an emo haircut. An Emo haircut is much more distinct and dramatic, with a stretch of hair intentionally grown past the location of the eye socket.
These are Emo haircuts- not what Bieber was wearing when he first came onto the scene. Needless to say, the article makes an alarming point. While it is known to effect the younger development years of our human growth, it is still found to be problematic in the later stages of life as well.
I understand and respect that we all have the right to express ourselves however we want- unfortunately when we are 10-20 years old we feel as if we are invincible, and that warnings like these do not apply to us. But rest assured, as we enter our late twenties, we quickly realize how any harm we might have caused to our bodies growing up can catch up to you very quickly.
As displayed in the picture above of one of the best bands to ever live, a haircut is a sense of expression, an outlet for us to separate ourselves from the rest of the pack, whether it be an Emo cut, blonde tips, a mohawk, crew cut, extensions etc. We are all unique in our own ways, and however we choose to alter our image is entirely up to that individual. Unfortunately for those with the Emo-style cuts, I don’t think a simple article like this will change their mind much.
I looooooove this look! If you know me, you’ll know that I get my nails done every two weeks and I love to pick out fun, quirky colors and designs. It’s very rare for me to come home from my nail appointment with a simple french manicure. It’s just boring to me. My mom, however has had the same french manicure for years. I don’t know how she does it to be honest! Well, I am thrilled to find that this two-toned-ness was totally in! I’ve been doing stuff like this for years….maybe I started this trend?!! haha! You can mix and match any color any way you wish! There is no limit to what you can do here. Colors I have tried in the past: white nail with pink tip, dark forest green with black tip, tan/beige nail with white tip, blue sapphire nail with white tip…the list goes on. It’s even fun when you separate the two colors with a small strip of glitter! So go out, get your nails manicured, and send us your photos!
We usually chat about women’s shoes on Shoesday, but summer shoes for men is something that definitely needs to be addressed. One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to mens fashion is mandals, just don’t do it! The only time that I think it is ok for men to wear sandals is when they are on or headed to the beach. In the mean time there are definitely some great, stylish, and comfortable summer shoes out there for men. These Sperry bat shoes and canvas Vans are a few of my summer faves for men. The best part is that both of these pairs retail for under $100!

Seriously, this rainy weather is really depressing. Today I had plans to hang with my good friend and her adorable 1-year-old son by the pool. Seems the weather had something else in mind though.
Not only does rain ruin plans, it also ruins your hair. I’m tired of just wearing my hair up because it’s raining all the time these days. I miss blowing it out real nice and wearing it down. Oh rain, won’t you listen to that song and go away like it says?
