South America has weird hair things happening...

I dunno if you happened to read about my trip to Argentina. In in I mentioned how the straight guys all have this WEIRD bad hair that must be copied from some popular soccer player or something. It was like they had spiky mullet type things. It was just like genuinely BAD HAIR. Like just super unflattering proportions and coloring. Like not just ugly but OFF. Like a hairstyle could be WRONG per say but if it was on the right face it would look good which means the hair isn't bad per say its just bad for that person. THIS HAIR HOWEVER IS NOT THE CASE... This is fascinatingly bad. These are Columbian men and they make the weird argentina hair look like Farrah.
Ok I just looked again because I thought "Maybe Im being too harsh?". You know what these are SO BAD... Like they wouldn't even look good on someone gorgeous. I thought " well maybe the guys are just not hot." Nope.... and the hat put on the tiniest setting and then put ON TOP of the head.... backwards. It really is like Aliens landed in a hair care supply shop. If someone turned up at my door delivering food and they looked like this id be nervous that they'd stab me and rob my crafting cabinet for AIRPLANE GLUE.

Maybe it some Latino bizarroness like this Pointy Toe boot craze and dance the Mexicans have come up with.

There seems to be sort of- well, I'm stepping way back with a macro lens, here- but there seems to be some sort of jpg-informed, reduction-artifacted, New Aesthetic thing going on, here? Like, it's not just a case of attempting anime hair- it's that they blew up the Dragonball-Z icon they use for a profile pic and took THAT to the barber as a model...

or something?

I don't know, for some reason I'm just getting some serious A/D/A-conversion-errors-as-Look vibe from this.

I don't mean to be rude but your post has some inaccuracies:
1. The guys in the photos aren't South American, they are Mexican, from the city of Monterrey. Check here:http://www.vice.com/read/the-cholombians-731-v18n3
2. Mexico is part of North America
3. COLUMBIAN is misspelled. It's COLOMBIAN and people from there are known as COLOMBIANS, Columbian could be used in reference to people from the District of Columbia here in the U.S. but I don't think that is actually a thing.

Good to know should I ever speak of COLOMBIANS again. The photo was presented to me as Colombians though so....
