Bono's hair

I know his hair is his business, but I am one of those people, probably in the minority, who thought his hair was looking pretty bad by touring time.

What d'yall think?

oh no.

oh nononono.

Please, please for the love of God...take a warning from someone who has been here since the dawn of time and DON'T GO THERE!. I know it seems like an innocent question, but full-scale wars have been waged upon this hallowed blue ground over the matter.

I've been here longer than you think.

I know the tinderbox that is "Bono's Hair"

But with the polling feature, people can respond without judgement, so I figured what the heck.

It's all in good fun anyway...

I voted for the short Popmart hair...You know, I don't remember liking it at the time, but now, looking back, I think it suited him well.

Hey, there's no J Tree Gorgeous Flowing Chocolate Mane option. I'm doing a write-in.

Tour hair was also quite hot.

I loved the tour hair. It was beautiful and it was no 'mullet.' As Dustybot once posted, some here are very ignorant as to what a 'mullet' really is. The UF era was the closest Bono ever had to one, and even it was not really one. Check out Billy Ray Cyrus in his early career. You're probably just one of those shaveheads who think anything that hangs down should be cut off. I disagree. I love longer hair on a guy, especially Bono. The BD hair was a huge improvement over Pop, but was too short and thin on top to suit his face. The Elevation hair was excellent and I loved it. The shorter version of it he has now is just perfect for him, it frames his face perfectly and he's gorgeous. I hope he keeps it.

Yeah... it definitely was not a mullet. He had normal guy hair.

Earlier in the 80s he had a mullet.

Billy Ray Cyrus is an excellent example!!!

I think it tended to get a little out of control on tour. Too long, a little shaggy. Nothing will ever beat the JT hair, though. Man, it was great. I love a man with good hair.....

In defense of Bono's locks!

Out of control you say?

*ahem*

Have some of you forgotten that the man-----

is----

a----

ROCK STAR??!!

He looked very good on the tour. A rock singer needs a generous amount of hair, and if it gets messed up during the concert, well, that's rock and roll, and that's SEXY!!!!

Tour hair all the way! I think it looked very much like the Zoo/AB era hair which I love too. Bono with black hair and black leather, those are a few of my favorite things!

Well, what about Larry, Adam, and Edge then? They've got short hair, and they're all still sexy, right?

Well, personally, Bono is the only band member I find physically attractive. No offense guys! I appreciate all of their musicianship and love them all, but when it comes to sex appeal Bono is the only one that does it for me

Bono's ATYCLB tour hair was indeed a mullet.

There is a spectrum of mullets out there and while Bono's was not as dramatic as Billy Ray Cyrus' neckwarmer, it did exude the qualities of a mullet - shorter on the top than in the back.

His sides were not shaved, a la the UF/Live Aid era mullet, but it still falls within the realm of the mudflap.

I think the thing that bugged me the most about it was how unwashed and over-treated it looked.

Back in the JT days, it was long and natural looking - cool.

In the AB days, he was dying it black, but it didn't look fake or fried. It had some curl to it.

These days, it's too straight and treated to look cool long. Just my opinion though - I'm sure the B-man could critique the heck out of my hair!

POP hair... Or the lack of it.

It's just the way I am, I usually don't find long hair for men any apealling.

Okay! Good to know I'm not the only one in the universe who feels this way!
