The Good,the Bad and the Ugly...Hair Pt7 Finale

When I was 17, I moved from Massachusetts to California with my friend Stefanie. She was from LA so she wanted to move back. I went with her to keep her company and because I thought that if I stayed home with my parents I was sure the CRAZY would suck my soul away and I would lose my mind.
Stef did her best to keep the crazy away from me. However, being that I was a teenager without any goals at the time, a different kind of crazy found me. I could write several pages on the short time I spent in California, but this is a hair post. Maybe I will write more about those days another time.

This is no faux-hawk this is the real thing people. I would shave my head Friday nights after work and by Monday it would look like this. On weekends I frequented a club called Fenders , somewhere in Los Angeles,where they had local punk bands play. I also went into the Pit once to slam dance. Only once because at the time I weighed under 100lbs and kept getting knocked over. The people in the pit were nice enough to pick me up, but I was scared I might actually get injured.
Well, now you know my favorite hairdo of all time. I also still love punk rock music. Maybe one day I will give myself another Mohawk.

Dang, it looks like it's mostly self-supporting! My favorite chick-hawk was the one sported by the lead singer of Bow Wow Wow. I wanted one as soon as I saw the "I Want Candy" video.

How much do I love that song from Suicidal Tendencies? I have it on my iPod.

Back then my hair was similar to the dude from Flock of Seagulls.

LA will make you do crazy things!

Catching up with several of your posts at once. It's been great fun looking back through the history of you hair.

Mine is so boring. Except for one crazy time when I dyed it jet black, it's always been short, blond, and almost straight. I went from blond to white without even noticing when it happened.

I FREAKIN' LOVE IT! I too went through a punk stage. My first show was Social Distortion (Social D!). Still love them.

The funny thing was that I hung out with the punk rocker types on the weekends. During the school week I was pretty much your typical preppy kid. Boring. But the weekends!

Never had the balls to do what you did. GOOD FOR YOU!
