I really hate these.. I see them everywhere, they seem rather silly. My mom said when she first saw them, "They look like part of a costume!" and I agree, I can't understand how they're fashionable. They don't match clothes or anything on top of looking silly and odd. I prefer accessorizing hair with clips and headbands and things, but if these people want something permanent like that why not get highlights/lowlights instead for something that looks different in their hair? Then them being cruel is even worse, but even if they had nothing to do with animals I wouldnt understand them. Hopefully it's just a fad that'll pass.
