The Crazy Hair of Mexican Cholombiano Subculture in Photographs by Stefan Ruiz

Featured below are photos of Mexican urban teens by photographer Stefan Ruiz. These weird hairstyles and distinct outfits are a part of Cholombiano subculture which they represent.

This subculture centers around cumbia music which became extremely popular in 1960s and found a strong foothold in Mexico, specifically with Monterrey. Then, around the late 90s, the genre bred a teen fanbase so passionate about cumbia that they began referring to themselves as Cholombianos, which simply means Colombians in Spanish. However, it essentially disappeared from Monterrey in the late 2000s and early 2010s.
