Nick Cave

The legendary Australian singer had an awesome nest of hair in the 80s.



As he got older his hair settled down a bit into a long swept back style. He has said that he has died his hair black since he was a teenager, and will continue doing so "until he dies".



Once in his late 30s it started to get thinner, but as he seems to have started off with more hair than most people this wasn't really noticeable for a long time. He always had this sort of notch in the front of his hairline, like an inverse widows peak, which got bigger as he approached middle age.



There was a period in 2003 when he had unusually short hair for a while - I thought at the time that he may have been trying to hide the balding.



Now his hair is noticeably balding he has embraced it fully, and it suits his image very well. If the average man on the street tried to pull off this look, he'd probably be ridiculed and it says a lot about Cave's coolness that he is able to get away with it.



Mojo magazine featured him on the front cover last year, with a ridiculously retouched picture that is similar to the Prince William Hello cover.



I don't know why these magazines insist on doing this, they're not impressing anyone and are going against the Press Complaints Commision code on unrealistic images.



Now he has got rid of the moustache, he reminds me of a younger Angus Scrimm, the Tall Man from the Phantasm films. Incidentally he is roughly the same age as Scrimm was when he starred in the first Phantasm film.

  2. Hello again! I often wonder what Nick thought of that Mojo cover. I bet he chose to go MORE bald through sheer defiance after seeing it.

  12. I would like to express thanks to you just for rescuing me from such a circumstance. Because of exploring through the online world and meeting recommendations which were not helpful, I figured my life was done. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the issues you have solved all through the write-up is a serious case, and ones which might have adversely affected my career if I hadn’t discovered your web blog. Your primary ability and kindness in handling every aspect was very useful. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a step like this. I am able to at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for this skilled and amazing help. I won’t hesitate to recommend your web sites to any person who desires support about this subject matter.

  14. And pretending you okay when you not doesn help anyone least of all your family and friends. Let the people you trust in on how you really feeling. It will help both them and you.Coming to terms with your new realityIt healthy to grieve the life you lost, but it not healthy to continue looking back and wishing for a return to your pre disability As tough as it is, it important to let go of the past and accept where you are.You can be happy, even in a body.

The axiom survives despite bountiful evidence of Designer Phone Cases its wrongheadedness: Take note Human Hair Wigs of elegantly aging women such as Catherine Cheap Human Hair Lace Front Wigs Deneuve, Patricia Clarkson, Meryl Cheap Full Lace Wigs Streep.
