I got my brother to leave an entire strip unshaven down the back of the head, starting at the bottom of my crown, because I don't like the look of a totally shaved head with a rat's tail. That hair is much shorter than my rat's tail, being only a few inches long, but I think it provides enough of a lead in. I've never seen anyone else with this hairstyle and my Google searches came up blank, so if I was inspired by someone else to do it, I've forgotten about them.
I have a hairstyle dilemma right now, actually. A job at one of the only two bra places worth looking at has opened up and I'm desperate to get it. Unfortunately one of their requirements is that their new employee be "well presented", which I fear I am not. My mother protested when I said that, but just because she finds my shaved head and nose-and-lip rings perfectly acceptable for a position that regularly deals with customers, it's unlikely that an employer will. Nevertheless I will apply for the position because despite already having two jobs, I am eminently suitable (other than being a scruffy punk) for an administration job at a bra fitting store. Wish me luck! (Or pray for me; that's preferable.)
