Latest Bizarre Beauty Trend: The Bagel Forehead?

By Kim Anne Sep 27, 2012 10:44PM






The things we do for beauty. Many of us will try out new and semi-bizarre beauty trends if it means adding a few years to our youthful glows or making us feel pretty, but men and women in Asia have been taking this concept to a whole new level. Case in point: the bagel injection.

Yes, you read correctly. The latest trend in beauty procedures over there just so happens to resemble our favorite Sunday breakfast item: the bagel. “National Geographic Taboo” reports on this strange beauty trend, where women (and men, too) are getting injected with 400 cc of saline to in their foreheads to create a bagel-like shape. Why? Just for fun. 

As National Geographic reports, this trend is part of the Japanese “body modification” art scene that has become popular (other body mod trends include head-to-toe tattoos and facial implants).

In fact, the injections only give that “coveted bagel look” for about 16 hours before fading. 

Bottom line: If you’re trying something new to get attention, well, this may just do the trick. At least for a whole 16 hours.

Tell us: What are your thoughts on the bagel forehead beauty trend?

If i say its stupid people would be like, why are you being mean? there just people they can do what they want. but if i say woah thats cool then everyone would say your stupid thats dumb.
so i say they can inject sour cream into there face and look like a juicy taco but dosent mean i want to do it.
Personally i think its dumb. but on the other hand what the hell do what you want with your body...
but then again its a waist of money.  like everyone else is saying. so who wins.
screw it i say its dumb and retarded looking. if your offended im not ganna try and make you feel any better... it is what it is.
