I'm currently feelin: amused amused
I'm currently hearin: The Interpreter

Tonight I was watching my Vertigo DVD with my mom. I'm definitely an Edge Girl, but she fancies Larry. So I, of course, started talking about his hair and how... ew.
We get a song or two in, Bono's all sweaty, and now his hair pushed back. And my mom goes all "What's the difference???"

Larry's hair is a bit longer by now, but Bono's is of a similar length. So... why is it okay for Bono but not Larry?

I don't think it is... I'm not a fan of Bono's hair at the moment, either. ;)

Neither am I. Yay, Edge and Adam!

OT: our icons have the Edges of the same era.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that Larry doesn't let his "flow" like Bono, he just slicks it back with grease all the time. Bono's only gets like that when he's been sweating excessively, ya know?

Isn't it fun when parents take an interest?

My mom and I were watching the Live8 DVD and she knows how Bono is, but not the other guys so she kept asking me who "the guy in the hat" was in the same voice she reserves for reminiscing about a young Keith Richards.
The Mom likes her guitar players.

And the hair thing...I think it's headshape or something, but Larry just doesn't look right. I feel like he should put on a leather jacket and belt out a few verses of "Greased Lightning".

Larry is too much of a pretty-boy-turned-chiseled-man.

I must admit I'm not a huge fan of Bono's current hair either, which is weird, because I loved it long in the past (i.e., my icon). I also adored the length it was in 2000/2001, though, and I think that suits him better now. Maybe it's just a wonky cut or something.

It definitely looks more decent on Bono because it's hard to actually tell what length it is and it's fluffy and looks kind of healthy, whereas Larry's is clearly slicked down to his neck and it just looks gross. He still should cut it.

"Beautiful Day"/"Elevation" saw the band at their hair best. With the exception of the All That You Can't Leave Behind, it seemed at least one of them had hair issues all through their career.

Adam: Early '80s fro, AB bleach blonde
Edge: Scraggly JT hair with the cowboy hat
Larry: Current greased lightning gone wild
Bono: The Mullet (TM)

And thus ends my most ridiculous comment to u2. :)

I think ZooTV bleach-blond was Adam's best look!

I loved Bono's hair long in the past, as well, but I do not like how he has it now. My theory is that he is coloring it regularly, because it seems sort of fried. It is just not flowing or laying right like it used to.

When How to Dismantle... came out, I lamented that Bono's hair looked much too much like my mother's hair style. That's a problem! :)

To be honest, if it's not working for him and he possibly needs color touch-ups, I think he should go back to the Pop-era shorn look, which would look even better with a bit of salt-and-pepper. Going grey doesn't mean you are losing your cool, Bono. See Adam for details. ;)

Larry's greasy flat hair is just gross.

The problem with Larry's hair, is that he can do grease, or length, preferably neither, but certainly not both at once (which is what he's doing). There were some photos from Mexico last November, when he was degreased, and his hair looked nice with the length. His hair doesn't look too bad slicked back so long as it's short, but as long as it is, it looks awful.
