Baby James is the New Keempee

To understand that statement, you must first understand the context.

Keempee
Mostly everyone knows Keempee de Leon, son of the Comedy Triumvir Joey de Leon. He was a matinee idol in the nineties, and his claim to fame lies in spawning a hairstyle that became a household name that ruled the last decade of the last century.


Wait, you can't really see the hairstyle from that angle. I'll give you a better picture.


There, that's better. That hairstyle, ladies and gentlemen, is probably responsible for more than half of the pregnancies in the nineties. Finally, Filipino males have found the perfect cut for our straight, dark Malay hair.

The guy with the hottest hairstyle will go home with both chicks.


In the nineties, you could go to any beauty salon in the Philippines, just tell them you want a "Keempee", and the hairdressers would take it from there.

And now, two decades later, a new little guy is spawning a cultural hairstyle revolution. That little guy's name is...

Baby James
Baby James Yap is the son of First Lady Kris Aquino and basketball star James Yap. His hairstyle looks like this:

Because he is Kris's son, you know those are real Wayfarers.

Baby James' hairstyle looks like a cross between a mohawk and an army cut. And we kid you not when we say you could go to any beauty salon in the Philippines, just tell them you want a "Baby James", and the hairdressers would take it from there.

There definitely has to be a Guinness World Record category for "youngest person to influence a national hairstyle fad".
