King Chameleon: Every Hairstyle Prince Has Had From 1978 – PresentMorgan Shanahan
One career, two names (three name changes) and thirty six hairstyles. How fantastic is this illustration from Gary Card (first published in The Beat, used with permission) that takes us through a complete history of Prince’s hair. And the Artist Formerly Known As. And then Prince again. See? He’s the ultimate chameleon, and never afraid to take a beauty risk.
Can you imagine having one of these of yourself? Are you a risk-taker or have you stuck with a signature style most of your life? I wish I could get Gary to compile one of these for me, except instead of my career it would be every hairstyle/color I’ve had since I entered puberty and coincide it with the dramatic/humiliating milestones in my life that prompted said changes rather than my Grammy Award-winning albums. But that’s almost the same. See? Prince…he’s just like us.
