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.

Snake-hipped rock god Jim Morrison of The Doors was just born to be a star, wasn't he? He had the looks, the curly hair and intellect to tap into the poetry of free-loving 60s hedonism. Every cock rocker since Morrison's death has tried to channel his unique allure, but it's a pied-piper like gift that few are born with.

The Mighty Boosh have lost a little of their quirky homespun charm now that they’re living up to their Rock n’ Roll onstage personas, but they can still pack a venue with adoring fans.

Their gig at the O2 arena in London yesterday was a sellout, Noel Fielding had as many costume changes as Katy Perry at the MTV EMAs, including the ones pictured above but the highlight was probably a bizarre old lady outfit teamed with gold boots! I doubt that any of Fielding’s costumes would translate to real life, but as the comedian once said himself “you can never be unhappy in a poncho”, so maybe give it a go during the low points of the Christmas break?

Gucci designs Lenny Kravitz’s stage costume

Not many musicians can claim that their concert costumes are designer-made. Sure the Spice Girls had Cavalli and Madonna can have just about any designer she fancies, but I think Lenny Kravitz has to be one of the few male performers to receive this special luxury treatment.
