Space Patrol Haircut

Back in 1951, young kids, inspired by the science-fiction TV series Space Patrol, started giving themselves the prematurely bald look, aka the "Space Patrol haircut."

Where are the "lost" actors head shots of their haircuts these kids are emulating? I hate to think those genes were all passed on, but i know they were. LOL Good thing today we don't idealistically follow demagogues or Hollywood icons, what ever, leading face time to agenda movements.

The weirdest thing about this story is that they printed the kid’s full street address. So you could go knock on his door and ask to see his haircut...
