Ode to Frosted Tips

Have you noticed? Frosted tips are making a comeback. You're probably saying to yourself, "WTF? I don't believe it."

I can hardly believe it either, loyal Up Your Alley reader. Yet the proof is in the pudding. Today I saw three homos under 25 years of age with frosted blond tips. Last night at an Urban Mixer event, I saw a man with frosted curl-tips.

Listen: nothing screams 1998 louder than frosted blond tips. And trust me, I know because I was a teenager then and followed the trend religiously.

Loyal readers, I have but one request: please do not do this to me. If I come across you on the street with frosted tips, I'm going to have to go ahead and do something dramatic, like sacrifice you to the almighty Justin Timberlake to ensure another year of good hair for yours truly…

My sister Lindsay has help me compile a greatest hits video list of frosted tip offenders (who are likely to reoffend now that their careers have fizzed)…these videos are not for the faint of heart:

Do you want the world to return to this? Do you? DO YOU REALLY?

As for B4-4's repetitive requests for getting down on me…no thanks. If I remember correctly, I filed a restraining order back in 2000. Their eyebrows must remain 50 metres away from me at all times.

And now check out this one, because the non-twin caved and joined the frosted-tip parade <shudder>

And who could forget Vancouver's own Soul Decision:

Damn that Trevor. He has the voice of a siren and the hair of a frosted-tipped GOD. You should also check out their video for Ooh It's Kinda Crazy. At one point, during the group live performance, THREE OF THE SIX PERFORMERS have frosted tips. I know! My eyes must be lying. AHHHHHHHHHHH!
And lest we forget, here's Justin Timberlake and Lance Bass on the fro-tip train:

Word for the wise: when your hairdresser says, "Come on, baby. Just the tip." – make sure to protect yourself before you wreck yourself and just say no.
