Don’t mess with the Kardashians.
Man, oh, man do we love when fashion magazines go the extra mile to produce not just one, but multiple cool covers!

But there’s a catch: this form of therapy is for women only.
Tonsorially, we here at Styleite are big supporters of the crew cut, the buzz cut and the plain old shaved head. As much as we love a full head of hair, some guys look great without any on top at all. China, apparently, disagreed.
