Whats the story behind Bowie having the mohawk hairstyle
back in 1997.
was it just another style or was it cut like that for a reason.

never seen much more of him with it apart from the new york concert 1997 footage.
is there any more?
I love it!
Eliza.

Not sure what the story was. I think Reeves shaved it. Maybe Bowie lost a bet?

Mr. Bowie has always had a willingness to look grotesque - he's less stuck on his physical appearance than many of his fans. Still, there are limits...

I think it was just sort of a 'joke thing'

around that time - he was still (obviously) dye-ing his hair, so maybe instead of re-dying it (which is harmful to your hair)

he decided to just chop it all off, and let it re-grow

but... I mean - if you're going to chop it all off - why not have a bit of fun first?

which explains the mohawk, and the later ...um... I forget what the style is called, but it was basically JUST the front bit of a mohawk.


it then led to his hairstyle in "Everybody Loves Sunshine"

I thought it was trendy at the time? The goatee was in the 90s, and he had that for a while.

Just about every teen heartthrob on TV had the centre parted hairstyle, much like the 'Hours..' mop, and DB's nothing if not up on being fashionable. wink.gif
