For the Kids

Thursday, May 29, 2008 |

I was listening to the radio while I was coming home today and I heard the lady on the radio(not a station I normally listen to so I don't know her name) start a conversation about famous people being from Texas. She mentioned American Idol's Jason Castro because apparently today they are having an event in Rockwall for him.





Now here's the awesome part. She suggested that he should come into her studios so she could cut his hair. She was polling women on the phone and they all said his hair was heinously awful. And here's where it gets really good. The radio host started suggesting (with all seriousness) that Jason should come in so she could cut his hair on the air and donate it to Locks of Love. Let's think about that for a moment shall we.

Can you imagine that those sick dreds are actually useful to an organization that makes wigs? Off the top of my head I knew this, but for your info the rules are

- 10 inch minimum length of hair cut

-Not bleached or highlighted

-Clean and dry and in a ponytail

Then I checked the actual site and here is a quote for your reading pleasure :

"We cannot accept dreadlocks. Our manufacturer is not able to use them in our children’s hairpieces. "

And can you imagine the poor kids if they did?! Although his wig might be fun for the Make-A-Wish foundation for kids who want to be rasta for a day.

Seriously, how do you make a wig out of dreads anyway other than attaching it to a hat? Preferably a hat that uses the Jamaican colors. He probably wanted the dreads in the first place to stand out at A&M, but just ended up lookin' a fool. Silly.

Eeeew.... Alison just reminded of something... The mere thought of dreads in College Station. Not the school necessarily, but the geographic region. Oh the Humidity!. And anyone remember "Love Bugs"? The nasty bugs that swarm for a month in a mating frenzy. They don't even notice if you are swatting them away, and if they smash on your car they take the paint off. I I wonder how many love bugs he has stuck in his hair at this point.
His hair probably started a bacterial menengitis outbreak.

come on you guys he is completely gorgeous!!! i think that just because his hair in unusual doesn't mean you should judge him on that. i mean srsly whatever! ignoe the hair have you seen his eyes?!?!?!?! TOTALLY beautiful. i think he would look worse w/out the dreds. they give him a very refined look and he of all people can pull it off.
