Ponderings

For some reason I was googling worst mullet ever in an idle three seconds today. Why I ask myself? I don't bloody know! the other side of my brain shouts. Then I stumbled across an Australian Top Ten of worst hairdo's of all time as conducted by Braun in a telephone survey for Australian broadsheet The Age. So - please relax and imagine if you can dearly beloved and departed Alan 'Fluff' Freeman at the controls and here goes for the Top Ten Worst Ever Hair-Don'ts. Not 'alf you beautiful lot!

Straight in at Number 10 - it's the Mohican - you haven't heard the last of them yet!

Next up at Number 9 - like a fish out of water - that's a mullet and a half mate - not alf!


Number 8 - can you hear it buzzing? It's the beehive!


Going downtown the chips are definately down at Number 7 - it's helmet head:

Straight in at Number 6 - it's New it's Romantic - It's New Romantic:

Halfway to paradise in a back-combed Bouffant - it's Number 5 - should be 666 - it's a fright alright!

Just teased in at Number 4 - it's the bad perm ladies...ahem...and gentlemen..

It's straight alright - in at number 3 - is he straight alright?


A shocking entry - certainly not straight at Number 2 - crimped mate - oh dear - don't try this at home kids:

Drum Roll

Trumpet Fan Fare

And certainly holding it's own at Number 1 for the 37th year running iiiiiit's The Pageboy!
Everyone wanted it, grown men lusted after it. A stunner at Number One. Goodnight. Stay tight. All right!

Ha ha. Do you think he keeps his hair in a special mullet-protector-net overnight to maintain that perfect oblong shape in the morning?

Or that I can not seem to find any photo's of my poodle-perm disaster c.1984 from The Alan School of Hairdressing which was situated in a now defunct bit of an underground pedestrian subway leading to Hammersmith Underground Station. It cost me a fiver - and it looked like it has cost me a quid. The 'trainee' burnt half of my head by mixing solution at the wrong ratios and then did one side tighter than the other. Hilarious now - suicidally hysterical then - street cred down the pan in one fell swoop!
