Bono's short-lived "looks"

I can only think of a couple, but the one that I am glad he tanked was the "hooded" look he sported at the onset of the POP era. He kind of carried it into the tour by coming into the arena lookin like a boxer, but the look I'm talking about is this one...



I think he was trying a bit too hard to be introverted-techno guy and it just wasn't jiving with his real personality (remember the MTV Music Awards during "Please"? Just didn't seem to fit IMO)

What are some of the other short-lived looks, good or bad?

Boxer Bono hehe

Well since POPMART was my very first U2 concert and the point in my life that I became a devoted fan I kinda liked the boxer look.... I thought it was cute when he came out w/the robe and on the back it had the heart...kinda like a whole thing of 'alright i'm not a fighter but i'm a damn good lover' hehe but yea...i can see how that look was just not him. good thing his mind works in so many ways that he is always trying to come up with new ways of showing himself off to the fans.
LATERS!
hey bono...wanna have a lil boxing match?
-bono- what if i beat you?
then i'll reward you with something
-bono- and what if you win?
you have to reward me with something
-bono- how do i see this going bad either way....

Though I am no fan of that hooded look, at least it covers up his buzzhead look which I really disliked.

Other short lived looks I did not care for:

x-Passengers look, gray hair, beard and plaid coat
x-the golf cap, goatee and small round wire blind man glasses
x-The Sweetest Thing nerd look
x-those black heavy framed glasses with rhinestones with the short slicked down hair (he looked 60 years old and too much like my Dad! )


On a positive note, here is a short lived look I really loved- the long, bushy reddish hair and the fringed jacket with the ruffled shirt *sigh*



One more I can't find a pic of, I don't hate it but I don't like it too much, the bleached blond hair he had at his wedding! Remember that?

Thanks Mona, yeah that's the blondie wedding pic. I'm glad he didn't stick with that, he looks better with dark hair! Flaming June, I'm glad to see somebody else likes the Amnesty International look!

I think all of Bono's looks were "fleeting" in the sense that he changed with each era.

I always know it's him by that beautiful sun spot freckle below his eye, and his beautiful blue eyes.

i'm a big fan of pop bono. the hooded look wasn't the greatest but it didn't bother me....it didn't look bad is what i'm trying to say.

i think he looked amazing with the really short buzzed hair. i know a lot a people love his longer hair but i think that pop bono is a major hottie

OK I am not liking the mohawk bono bonochick posted..or werewolf bono CMM posted..that was scary! I saw a pic of bono with a totally shaved head, during pop mart. THAT was scary!! I loved the really early Bono. when he had like the bushy black hair. Remember the IWF video? he had the really small leather pants and the short shirt on? he kept messing with his hair in the video. I like that look..lol this pic is kinda like it..he had that look for awhile
