Hello Hello!!

Weekend Wrangle @ 11:59 am

stay_please:
Alright, good answers last week. Let's get away from emotional stuff, and go funny. But, I'm going to be mean this week, and forbid you an answer.

In the history of U2, you must name the worst haircut. Haircut may include facial hair, hats or head coverings, or anything else you can think of involving U2's hair.

The answer you are forbidden from is - Larry's mullet. I know not everyone would name that, but it just may be the most popular answer.

Feel free to provide accompanying pictures, caps, or icons. If you are on a dial-up service, consider that your warning.

If Larry needed to be introduced to a pair of scissors (and he finally was!), in the late 1980s, Edge needed to be introduced to a brush!

While I find my current icon totally appealing, and I do indeed fancy myself and Edge girl, the long hair was just yucky. Putting it a braid never really helped either. The Zoo era "nub" on the back of his head was a step in the right direction... which he finally completed by cutting it even closer by the time Popmart rolled around, and he's been dead sexy ever since. ;)

This is funny, because I was just watching the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame Induction last night and thought once again how much I dislike Bono's hair then. Because, really... it's greasy... it looks so.... oh maybe this is the one and only period of time where I would not have run into The Man's open arms... it's like Larry's mullet. Eeek.

I liked Larry's mullet...



This one is huge: Made me wonder if he'd ever heard of a hair brush.

the one above gets worse in combination with the beard, IMO...
but the huge one behind the cut --> I actually like his wild hair there ;-p

Kidding, kidding...


Through a bit of googlin', I just discovered: Adam had a goatee once!



Mid-90s, is it? I can't quite tell.
Anyway, I'm not sure if I like it, but I'll submit, y'know, for your consideration.

Yeah, I didn't like Adam's goatee. I dunno why, but I'm not a fond person of too much facial hair. I can handle stubble, but that's just too much.

Oh,headband, headband, headband.

Last year, I had a huge Adam poof 'do and was considering trying to bring the headband-on-a-guy look back.

But yeah, Adam just looks like some sort of 80s rockabilly rooster there.

As much as I love Edge, I can't help but wonder who was thinking what when this happened

Bono's many 80s long-haired indiscretions scare me much less than this 'do, because they were all pretty natural looking. He should've had his hairspray and gel privledges revoked after this one (not to mention that I'm pretty sure Ali is wearing less makeup than he is...)

Bono's hair looks scary when it's overprocessed.

It'd be fine if it was for his audition to play Elvis Costello in a movie or something. (I SWEAR they are seperated at birth!)

I actually like Larry's hair like that. I really can't think of any hair of Larry's that I didn't like to be honest...

The Bono mullet, circa 1985. Up until a certain point, the mullet had a certain kind of adorableness to it. I mean, it was actually cute in War era. But when he got to the point of shaving the sides.. *cringes* I have tons of pictures of Bono, but none from that era, because it's just too weird.
I also must mention Bono's hair, circa 2003. When it was some weird redding colour, and long, and brushed back and just odd. I can handle the reddish colour in his hair when it's short, but when it's long like that, it just makes him look like a very strange old man in sunglasses.
I'm also not a big fan of Bono's Elevation hair. It was very strange, kinda shortish in the back with these awful parted fringey bits going on in the front. My dislike for that style is worrisome to me, because I loved the short POP hair and I loved the spikey Beautiful Day hair, but if that is what happens when it grows out, I shudder to think about what the next year or so will be like.

And look at me, I totally picked on Bono, and didn't mention any of the others XD

I gotta agree with that, most of it anyway. I loved his mullet, until...well...yeah. Then it just got weird.
The long red hair...eeek. I didn't like that, I love it short and red but it's just weird long.
Although I do gotta disgree with the Elevation hair, I've got such a huge soft spot for Elevation Bono and I dunno why, but I adored his hair like that. But I can see how it'd be eekish if it turned out like that in the next year or so, when you take into consideration how it went from Pop to Elevation, if it goes that way again.

Wow, I confused myself. XD

Nothing even comes close to Bono's mullet from Live Aid. Mostly hairstyles and stuff don't bother me too much*, but you just can't fail to cringe when you see those clips!  It's not that long hair doesn't suit him, it's the dodgy combination of fluffy-on-top with that sort of horse's mane going down the back, and the blond highlights make it 10 times worse by drawing far too much attention to it. Just a complete disaster - how could anyone look in the mirror and think that looks OK?!


* (at least I didn't think so until I saw some of the pics in this thread...!)
