Hair length!

Have you noticed how most of the women in Pakistan have what might be considered the 'appropriate' hair length?

Fashion trends in Pakistan are constant-er than the constant in Dot Physics, including hair length. Short hair are a big no-no in the monochromatic fashion-dom of Pakistan. However, gone are the days when it was considered criminal (with a good dollop of superstitions) to see a girl's hair being snipped off with a pair of scissors. The midway consensus is, i guess, the 'boob length'.

Its strange when so-called fashionistas try to cover up their lack of dopattas by splaying their hair all over the front of their kurtas.

On the contrary, they might be doing so to attract attention to their curves. An example of this might be an episode of Mathira's late night show on Vibe TV, where a pervert asked her to take her hair away from her front, so that he could feast his eyes.

Whatchya say to that: is it their notion of modesty or are they trying to divert attention in a subtle manner, to their assets?


  1. Hahaha good one Kay. Its somewhere in between, they dont wanna throw their chest right at you and dont wanna wear a dupatta either. They want mass acceptability but cant wrap themselves in cloth. The hair length serves the purpose judiciously.

    Btw, I think Mathiras got fake hair extension or some shit.

  2. Hair extensions or not, I just realised that nobody has ever noticed this unwritten rule in Pakistan.
