What defines “basic?”

I hear it a lot on Guy Tang’s hair videos – in just about every situation: hair, makeup, style, personality…

However, there is never any context.

After giving it some thought, I came to the conclusion that “basic” is something that (at least in fashion and style) is something that is just the norm.  For example, where I currently live, dating/acting like cowboys/girls and dressing like cowboys/girls (or sloppy college students) is the norm.

So, to not be “basic” I would need to break free of those bad looks I get when I dress up and look presentable (more than presentable, actually, I do like to look and dress like I just walked out of a magazine – I may fail hard, but I try).
