Opinion is raging on the UK Mod Scene Facebook group as to what Paul Weller’s hair is all about. He’s tamed it slightly since this photo, but basically the hardliners are saying that – though it’s been copied by mods the world over – it’s not in any way a 60s mod haircut. So far over 1,000 people have contributed to the debate, and it’s getting testy.
Personaly, I think that it’s a variation on Rod Stewart/Steve Marriot’s hair circa 1966, with the distinct influence of a skinhead girl’s ‘do and, perhaps at its spiky rear, a touch of former Hammersmith Gorilla Jesse Hector.
What are your thoughts?
