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.

Alfred Shaheen, the man responsible for popularising the Hawaiian shirt died on the 22nd of December.

Taking on his parents’ business after returning from WWII Shaheen built up the company turning it into a million dollar enterprise with a group of highly skilled workers dubbed Alfred Shaheen’s City of Craftsmen.

The Hawaiian shirt or ‘Aloha’ shirt became popular on the islands as dress-down formal wear but it was Shaheen, with the help of stars like Elvis Presley, who helped extend the fashion for Hawaiian shirts across the globe. Check out our gallery to trace the history of the garment.
