    Best Bouffant Hair Style In Music

    I don't believe the lovely bouffant that Karen Carpenter had for a couple of years can be bettered.

    Maybe not what the OP was looking for but Wiki: "A bouffant /buːˈfɒnt/ is a type of hairstyle characterized by hair raised high on the head and usually covering the ears or hanging down on the sides."

    Probably doesn't count, but Phil Lynott was the first that came to my mind:

    I remember hearing once the reason she and Kate Pierson ditched the beehives was because their hair was starting to fall out from all the crap they had to use to maintain that hairstyle.

    Maybe, but my guess is it is just a wig.

    Guns Ní Roses used to have very cool hairstyles when they were younger. Just look at these guys!

    I used to love their music and their style before. But I just can't imagine how hard it is to have such a hairstyle. The longest hair I had was shoulder-length and it was really difficult to make it look as I want, especially in the morning, It's a total mess. Of course, one can use hot brush (like those described on mystraightener) but It will take a lot of time. I think I'm just not ready for long hairstyles

    I don't know how bouffant is defined, but if we include quiffs then the Leningrad Cowboys win that one hands down

    The B-52's were my first thought too. I read somewhere that they had to drop the beehives because it was causing their hair to fall out.

    Anyone remember A Flock Of Seagulls? When I was 10 years old, I wanted Mike Score's hair do. I didn't actually know anything about hair styling at the time, so I didn't know that was mostly just hair gel, and something I probably could have done myself, had I been willing to spend all my allowance money on hair care product. Come to think of it, I think that was before i was getting an allowance, as I had beg money off my parents when I wanted to buy records at Wax Stax (my dad's stock answer being, "Can't you just record it off the radio?"...yeah, I'm gonna record an entire LP off the radio).

    Anyway, I'm glad I never actually had that hairdo, because:

    A. There's no pictures of me looking like this

    A-10390-1293634465.jpeg.jpg

    and

    B. Have you seen any recent pictures of Mike Score? And by recent, I mean, like in the last 25 years. He not only doesn't have that hairdo anymore, he doesn't have any hairdo. He's more or less bald. One wonders if that's a choice on his part, or if he too experienced follicle failure.

    And no musician hair discussion is complete without discussing Neal Schon's late 70's afro:

    Edit: Gottverdammter! Did I really just post the exact same thing about the B-52's that I did two and a half years ago?! I really need to start reading these things more carefully before posting.

    Could be. I always had the understanding in the early days, they had real beehive dos, though. But the wig theory does make sense. Not only would it be easier to deal with, but also, you walk off stage, take the wig off and you become almost unrecognizable.

    They even wrote a song about it:



    Also: I can’t imagine any human being actually having their hair like Cindy Wilson did in the “Song for a Future Generation” video. Can hair even do that?

    Not music-related, but it reminds me of the story of Mollie Sugden having her own hair dyed and styled for the pilot episode of Are You Being Served?...only to learn that the episode went out in black-and-white. She used wigs for the balance of the series. (Also, in an “Aluminum Christmas Trees” moment, I learned that it was the actual fashion for women in England of the 40s and 50s to dye their hair garish colors not found in nature, thanks to this guy.)
