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.

David Bowie

Flaming red with a quiff up top and party mullet at the back, David Bowie's transformation into Ziggy Stardust was one of the most striking in pop history. With the sci-fi influenced Ziggy Stardust look, Bowie opened the floodgates for a whole sea of androgynous stars and, to a lesser extent, made homosexuality and bisexuality less of a rock 'n' roll taboo in the process.

Tuck into some Tuk top threads

Sri Lanka, famous exporter of tea, coffee, coconuts, rubber (thanks Wikipedia) and now top quality shirts to your door. Tuk is a small venture from the sunny shores of Sri Lanka producing high quality check and floral print shirts, sourcing unique and high quality Sri Lankan fabrics and using ethical and local tailoring Tuk ensures the quality of their shirts. Fabric is bought in small quantities and each design is made in small runs meaning you’re unlikely to be walking down Oxford Street and see some other chump wear your threads (the Top Shop effect). All the designs are bright and colourful and the cut of the shirts slim making them perfect mod/indie boy staples. All the shirts come in at £55 with no extra for shipping- which is more than reasonable for a one off shirt.

Aem Kei Check Shirt

We all know checks are in. As a reader of
this blog, you’ll know this because you’re quite fashion forward. But the
average person knows checks are in because just about everyone is wearing them.
This Aem
Kei check shirt
is won’t make you stand out in the same way a sheer shirt
would, but it does everything very well.

The versatility is the best feature of
check shirts. You can roll the sleeves up and go all indie or you can just do
the top button up and look like a Latino Gangbanger. I’m not sure why you’d want to look like a gangbanger, but each to their own. Seeing the material is soft and built to
last, the £76 is justified.

Style Icons: The Young Knives

By admin on March 12th, 2008

Although Indie style icons are plentiful,
they all seem to follow the same consensus of skinny jeans and trenchcoats. That’s
why the Young Knives are one of my favourite style icons. Sticking with the same
look – which could be described as fox hunter meets 60′s office clerk – since
2006, it’s clear that they’re not wearing their clothes as part of a fashion fad.

The clever mixing of herringbone and check by lead
singer Henry Dartnall (centre in the picture above) is like something you’d see
on the Sartorialist. The band also wear skinny ties, which give their outfits just
enough modernity to make the look fresh.  Look after the jump for their ‘Up All Night’
video, which is about beating up people in Shoreditch.

Bobby Gillespie, We Are Scientists, Noel Fielding and The Horrors at the NME Awards

By Isabelle on February 29th, 2008

The NME Awards last night was a pretty stylish affair, most of the music crowd were dressed smartly although no one went for broke like the Arctic Monkeys at the Brits.
Bobby Gillespie looked splendid in a petrol blue suit and slim tie, I still think the Primal Scream frontman will be out-cooling everybody well into his ’70s. Chris Cain and indie prettyboy Keith Murray, the two remaining original members of We Are Scientists, rocked up proving the cliché that Americans are more tanned, have better teeth and are generally better looking than us Brits. Incidentally they are also wearing petrol blue tones, which might be an NME micro trend?
Reinforcing the pasty Brit stereotype was comedy pixie Noel Fielding who looks like he nicked his doctor bag from The Horrors (see after the jump). Agyness Deyn and Kelly Osbourne also looked pretty stylish at the event which saw Arctic Monkeys, Klaxons and Amy Winehouse take home awards.
