The former Smiths frontman has seemingly been receding since the 80s. In spite of this, he has always managed to sport an astounding quiff.
By the time of Your Arsenal in 1992 the receding was getting more obvious.
It continued at a slow but steady pace throughout the next few years, as you'd expect. Looking suave for Southpaw Grammar in 1995.
The Maladjusted era appeared to signal the death of the quiff.
Below, a still from the Alma Matters video, 1997.
And a photo shoot from around the same time.
The next few years saw Morrissey withdraw from the public eye. When he returned in 2004, he brought an old friend with him. Against all odds, the quiff had returned.
Looking fuller than it had done a decade previously, we have to wonder what Morrissey did to restore it's glory. Here he is in 2009, aged 50.
Whether it's a transplant, wig, medications or merely clever styling, only Morrissey himself knows for sure.
Maybe his balding simply stopped in 1997?
