Famous Hairstyles From Popular Music

An Impressive Collection of Famous Musicians' Hair

Pop Chart Lab's new poster, A Visual Compendium of Notable Haircuts in Popular Music ($20), outlines some of music's biggest hairstyles from the last half century, starting with Bill Haley's swirly curl and proceeding all the way up to Lil Wayne's braids and Lady Gaga's craziest extensions. It's a really fun visual exercise; I just wish a few more legendary ladies were represented.

Mike Score (aka Flock of Seagulls guy) and Kid from Kid 'N Play made the cut, but there's no Cher, Lauryn Hill, Dolly Parton, or even a single Spice Girl. Hopefully, sometime soon they'll expand their roster of hair profiles to include a few more women whose great work (and style) are worthy of commemoration.
