lifestyle haircut (n) – A haircut or style that
indicates its owner leads a life contrary to that
of the conservative
or heterosexual world. Also
known as “the significant lesbian haircut,” the acquiring of an alternative
lifestyle haircut is often seen as a rite
of passage into lesbian adulthood, even if it is not maintained after the initial cut. Like a bat mitzvah, but on your head. Examples include: the mohawk, the fauxhawk, the mullet, the sidesweep, and the Tegan and Sara.
was coined by Autostraddle.com
and has since become
a common collloquialism.
