29 Great Minds on the Power of Hair

215px-HairposterGive me a head with Hair.
Long beautiful Hair.
Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen.
Give me down to there Hair.

– “Hair” James Rado and Gerome Ragni (1967)

It’s the proverbial book cover by which we are most often judged, so is it any wonder that human beings have long had a complicated relationship with our hair? Like a Lion prunes their mane, we cut it, we dye it, we shave, and we buy it. Sometimes it betrays our truths, while other times it acts as our invisibility cloak, our security blanket, our greatest accessory, and yes, it’s even been known to ruin a day or two.

From philosophers to rock and roll frontmen, here are some epic quotes on the power of HAIR.
