Spotted–‘fro with pick

This morning as I was climbing the stairs out of trolley stop, I noticed three high school age kids, walking just a little ways in front of me. One of the boys, who looked to be about 15, had a midsized ‘fro going on. The thing that made me notice it was the pick that was sticking out of it. People were doing that when I was in middle school.

Is this style back? Did it ever go away? I remember the first time a kid showed up at West Sylvan Middle School with a comb still in his hair, it caused quite a stir. I think the teachers made him take it out and put it away.

Of all the looks to come back, why is this one making a resurgence?

    The look is coming back because you’re noticing it. It hasn’t gone anywhere. Young black men with fros will keep their picks in their hair because it’s an easy place to keep it.
