  • How can you make short hair look rock n roll?

    I wondered where to post this thread, I opened up the GJ board and realised that of the first 25 threads, only one was about guitar - I so I figured this was the place!

    Anyway... I work a 9 - 5 job and I cant have cool hair at my job - its fairly short (2 inches max) and dark. I play in an original alt rock/metal most weekends. A few months ago I adopted a sports head band type thing to try mix it up a bit which was ok, but now Im bored of it and Im looking for another way to avoid sporting my normal boring 9 - 5 cut onstage.

    What do you fellow short hair guys do? what do some popular short haired artists do to make short hair look rock n roll?

    All that stuff is evil: Ozzy, Judas Priest. There's backwards messages in that stuff that leads you to the Beast.

              I think the fact that you wore a "sports headband" renders this discussion moot.

                      It's no longer rock n roll to look rock n roll
                      The noise was good, but I thought they phoned in a lot of the funk.

                            Most of the bands I listen to consist of rather ordinary-looking guys with 9-5-type hair who happen to ROCK THE **************** OUT.

                            Lose the headband, leave your hair as it is, and concentrate on the music.
