    Loc'd hair in Hebrew is "naOOL", or literally, locked. It's the same word as for a locked door. For some reason it seems funny to me when put into that literal context, whereas in English it doesn't give me that funny feeling.

    Bowl cuts are already considered bad, but that's so much worse.

    The English equivalent that comes to mind is 'potty' - what an amusing mental image!!

    It's the same in Finnish, bowl cut=pottakampaus=potty cut.

    In Swedish bowl cut is Pottfrilla and that means "Potty style/potty hairstyle". I've heard people say it's because it looks as if you put a potty on the head and cut around it

    Yup, that's the same reason it's called a bowl cut here, but specifically a potty makes it so much worse/funnier!

    I don't think there is even a specific word for "bowl cut" in Dutch. I have to think... but... No. No.
