20 Most Iconic Rock ‘n’ Roll Hairstyles

By Gerald Lynch on June 29th, 2012

Rock ‘n’ roll can be broken down as follows: 10% fashion, 10% music and 110% HAIR. We know that adds up to 130%. That’s why we’re writing for a fashion site and aren’t quantum physicists. But it also acts to highlight just how important good hair can be in the making of a musical and cultural icon, and cementing the status of bona-fide rock ‘n’ roll stars. Where would Elvis be without his quiff? Or Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust without his…his unique style? On the dole queue, that’s where. Here, Brandish pick out the 20 most iconic hair styles in rock ‘n’ roll history.

The Strokes

God bless The Strokes, for they saved us from Nu-metal drudgery like Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit. Seriously, I can't thank them enough for reshaping the cultural horizons of my youth in their image, or I may be sitting here typing this begrudgingly wearing three-quarter length shorts. With messy, long and effortlessly cool hair, the New York art rockers redirected fashion to the thrift store and music to the three-minute pop song throughout the "Noughties". We could have picked any member for their great hairstyles over the years, but just couldn't nail down one over the others, so we put them all in instead.

Harvey Milk: first film-related trend of 2009

By Colin Chapman on January 2nd, 2009

Of all the films pending release in early 2009, MilkGus Van Sant‘s biopic of the gay rights leader/politician Harvey Milk – is most likely to have an impact on the fashion front. As we stride towards a boot-legged, tight-hipped summer, the movie might just start to look prescient: suggesting alternatives to the side parting (big hair!) and yet more reasons to grow a moustache.

Whilst it’s unlikely that Sean Penn will be raising much sartorial interest (despite a great performance) his more fashion-friendly co-stars just might. Emile Hirsch, who graced the cover of AnOther Magazine last year, wears his big-frame specs with a certain nous and his leather jacket/plaid shirt combo is thriftstore classic. Meanwhile, Lucas Grabeel turns more than a few Castro-bound heads, looking especially fetching in a frock, though, in general, he works the 70s look with aplomb as does Milk’s love interest, James Franco.

Milk is in UK cinemas from January 23rd.

Top 20 Cannes fashion moments

By admin on May 23rd, 2008

Men.Style.com has a retrospective of its top 20 Cannes fashion moments. Most of the fashion moments come from the 60′s and 70′s, the 80′s has two looks, the 90′s has three and the noughties only get one, that being Brad Pitt’s Tom Ford suit.

The fact that there was only one choice from the 00′s must prove that male movie stars have stopped making an effort. It’s like they’re all afraid of being featured on the worst dressed list and have decided to dress in black suit and tie wherever they go. I’m resisting the urge to go on a rant, but you know there’s a problem when sartorial dullard Daniel Craig gets feted for his fashion sense.
