A new year in Japanese men’s hair

A new year in Japanese men's hair, Daigo

My posts about Japanese male hair are always popular. In an elegant neighborhood close to Kokyo, I was drawn to this poster and its English caption “2009 New Hair.” The Japanese says, “It’s OK to be selfish, more mysterious and elegant.” So true, no?

And apparently the model is Daigo, a Japanese tarento, singer and grandson of a former prime minister. He’s now in a television soap Love Shuffle, about boy-swapping.

Do you think this image adequately sums up the new year in Japanese male hair? I am always happy to see no effort being spared for male vanity! What do you think?

  1. LOVE IT! The selfish part is interesting. I’d say Japanese men are pretty selfish as it is; after all, they’re culture caters to them in every way.

    I can’t believe that’s Daigo Stardust. He looked much older years ago when he tongue-kissed Miyavi in Maria. Those were the days, eh Daigo?
