Find Your Next Queer-Approved Haircut Through This Simple #TagYourself Meme of the Google Image Results for “Lesbian Haircut”

* Note: This article is meant to be taken lightheartedly. There is technically no such thing as a “lesbian” haircut. You will also notice the lack of POC hairstyles, due to the fact that Google’s image-retrieving algorithms are a racist mess and had no POC hair on the first page of its results. If you’ve got hair and you’re a lesbian, then congrats, you’ve got a lesbian haircut!


It’s a right of passage as a queer, fem-aligned person that you eventually find yourself googling the words “lesbian haircut” at some point or another in your life. The search term yields pictures that radiate purely gay energy from them, the likes of which can’t be found in “pixie cut” or “bob cut with bangs.” You scroll through them, silently balancing the need for style, code-dropping, and, you know, not looking like a mom who needs to complain to the manager about the cashier not taking her expired coupons for coconut oil.


No, no, I’m the one who's sorry, sir, because today, this establishment just lost its best paying customer.” 


In line with some of my favorite “tag yourself” memes, I’ve decided to make one out of the images that pop up when you search “lesbian haircut”. Which of the descriptions of the stylin’ folk below fits you best? That’s the one that should be your next haircut! Good luck, and may the framing of your face stay somewhat intact!
