Hairstyle popularized by URBAN teens in the 5 boroughs of new york. Then later copied poorly and taken credit by suburban teens mainly in Long Island and New Jersey. The hairstyle consists of a very light fade rising from the bottom of the sideburns and back of the neck. This allows for all sorts of different styles with the hair on top, very popular is the blow out. The blow out is where the hair on top is pulled in all directions to get spikes in all directions..
