I saw an episode of “Taboo” about a year ago and in the episode they showed extreme cultural concepts of beauty. They showcased the “Bagel Head” style of Japan as the next big fashion statement.
But upon further research I found out that the style is very obscure, and not very many Japanese people know about it.
It takes two hours to fill the forehead with a saline solution and the effect lasts less than a day. Even the Japanese are too practical for so much work for such a temporary effect. So in reality, while the world thinks Japan does this often, it really happens almost never. So I guess this post is for clearing up a misconception about this extreme fashion statement.
