Hair metal!

We’ve spoken before about how I hold 80’s pop culture near and dear to my heart. I have a real soft spot for everything from John Hughes films to off-the-shoulder tops to HAIR METAL (!!! *shred guitar solo* !!!). There’s just something about the gaudy getup and glam-tastic rock sound that ever appeal to me. A particular aspect that never fails to amuse (and perhaps, delight) is the long shaggy or backcombed hairstyles that hair metal bands (I just wonder how that term came about?) loved to sport.

So many hair metal bands (Poison, Twisted Sister, Cinderella, Europe, Bon Jovi, Guns N’ Roses, Van Halen, Mötley Crüe…just to name a few), so much hair. Mirror, mirror on the wall: who has the most beautiful hair of all?
