If you’ve ever dated a dude who spent more time on his hair than you did on your whole going-out appearance (Adam from freshman year, we’re looking at you and your turbocharged blowdryer), then you’ve probably snickered at Pete Wentz‘s perpetually flat-ironed hair. Add the guyliner and you’ve got emo incarnate — a kid who spends all day Photoshopping his Myspace pictures for maximum emotional impact.
But now we know why Pete never leaves the house without first ironing his hair and submerging it under an avalanche of product. Because without the straight treatment, he looks less like a rocker and more like your grandma’s neighbor’s son who’s a lawyer and just such a mensch, and do you think you could maybe marry him and have two of his children? Go back to the iron, Pete — we officially give you permission.
What do you think of Pete’s curls? Let us know in the comments.
