Jenna Greenspoon stunned her friends last week after getting an asymmetrical bowl cut. A mere six days later, Greenspoon’s friends are already starting to normalize the disturbing change in regular discussion.
Multiple reports confirm that the reveal of Greenspoon’s new haircut was a significant and regrettable moment in their friendship.
“Jenna will change her hair every once in a while—that’s the natural order of things,” friend Ingrid Kaufman says, “But this was such a severe change. It’s not normal. We can’t keep talking to each other as if it is normal.”
Friends did not want to disrespect Greenspoon’s right to get a haircut, but felt the specific style was so extreme it disrupted the very nature of their friend group.
“We can’t just go on and pretend like Jenna didn’t get an asymmetrical bowl cut,” Kaufman says. “People seem so ready to just accept it, but I can’t.”
“I consider myself to be an open-minded person,” friend Ciara Wendt says. “But no matter what way you look at it, the haircut is really bad, and damaging to everyone around her.”
“Honestly it’s offensive to even call this a haircut,” she added.
After the shock had worn off, Jenna’s friend group has been dangerously normalizing the existence of the haircut. Reports say that friends have stopped talking about the haircut and brainstorming ways to fix it, and instead are tacitly accepting Greenspoon’s look.
“I find it disgusting. How is that just one week later we already don’t care?” Wendt asks. “The conversation can’t stop. We need to keep reminding ourselves that haircuts like this are not okay, and look for solutions.”
Yet some friends confess they aren’t sure what they can do.
“I guess we could get Jenna a hat to cover it up,” Diane Marx says. “But what difference does it make? We have to accept that this is Jenna’s haircut.”
Others are resolved to just wait until the hair grows back, which will happen eventually.
“The question is how much damage Jenna will be able to do to our group reputation in the meantime,” Wendt says. “I’m hoping we can keep that to a minimum.”
When asked to comment, Greenspoon said she loves her haircut and is certain her friends support it too.
“They’re the ones who told me to go shorter and they recommended the hairdresser. If they don’t like it, that’s their fault.”
