Rock's Best Tresses

By 15

Rock and roll is as much about image as it is about music, and great hair can go a long way when proving one’s worthiness as a rock icon. These five male musicians get our vote for the best hair in rock n’ roll. Best Curl: Robert Plant

Give us the Robert Plant of 1972 or the Robert Plant of today, either way, we’ll happily run our fingers through the singer’s trademark golden locks. Somehow, Plant’s hair looks as good today as it did forty years ago. He must use a whole lotta high quality conditioner. Best Chin-Length: Gavin Rossdale

When Rossdale arrived on the scene as Bush’s frontman in 1994, fans instantly went wild for the band’s Brit-influenced grunge-rock sound and Rossdale’s charming good looks, which were accented by a chin-length cut that was always dyed varying shades of blonde, brown and deep red. It’s no wonder fellow hair chameleon Gwen Stefani fell in love with him. Best Longevity: Slash

The hair of guitar demi-god Slash is as iconic as the signature top hat that he puts on top of it. In the last 25 years, the lineup of Guns N’ Roses has changed far more often than Slash’s quintessential shoulder length jet-black curls. Maybe they help keep him warm in the cold November rain. Best Color: Jon Bon Jovi

Although we’ll always adore the Aquanetted, highlighted, big-haired Bon Jovi of the eighties and early nineties, the more subtly coiffed JBJ of the aughts serves us just fine too. We admire that through Bon Jovi’s marathon performances, Jon’s golden mane always maintained that perfectly flat-ironed look. Something tells us that Aquanet still may be part of the equation. Best Facial Hair: Dave Grohl

Dave Grohl is rock’s regular dude. He seems like a genuinely nice guy, he’s never been one to make tawdry headlines, and he sports the kind of every-man goatee often spotted at small town bars and biker rallies. We love the color and the shape of it.
