Eric's Hair

Recommended Posts

Julie   

Ok, maybe it's a frivolous topic, but hey, I gotta get up to my 26 posts so I can get my picture! So, I'm just wondering about how Eric's hair is going to be for the tour? Personally, I like that shorter look we've seen him in lately. I loved his hair in the "Hungry Eyes" video. I'm just thinkin' that the big 80's hair thing just isn't gonna cut it (no pun

intended :rolleyes: ). --Julie

Have to say I really liked the big hair days, hence the picture I chose under my user name. The shorter hair is very appropriate these days, and looks great, of course, but I do like those older pictures, too!

I also need some posts to get my picture so I will reply to your question. I think Eric's hair was great in the 70's and 80's. I know his hair is shorter now and maybe a little grayer. Some people can pull off the big and long hair and some people cannot. Eric was one who could pull it off.

Didn't you just LOVE his hair on "The Definitive Collection" cover? That's a great pic.

I still remember the first time I saw the video for "Hungry Eyes" though and everything just worked so well. The hair, the suit, the tie, the posture. Very nice indeed. The embarrassed look, the gulp...oh my shocked ! Think I'm going to have to get that out tonight and watch it. --Julie

I think Eric's hair has always looked great and looks great now. I used to be so jealous of his hair, because it looked better than mine! Any length, any style -- he knows what looks great on him and he does it. I can't wait to see how his hair will look on this tour! --Darlene

Just want to try out the picture thing, so I'll post and see if you can even imagine Eric with a shaved head wink Kirk.

Shaved head, hmm? That would be interesting. Of course, with those soulful eyes, I'm sure he could pull it off. (the "Graemlins" pull off the shaved head look rather nicely, too laugh ) --Julie

Kirk, I don't want to see Eric with a shaved head, but someday he may lose a bit of it. He has such a nice head of hair it would be a shame to lose it, after all he is noted for his hair, among other things. JUNE eek

It looks as though Eric inherited great genes -- he isn't losing his hair, and looks great. But I have a feeling that if he ever began losing some of those gorgeous locks, he would consider a very subtle hairweave or something that would remedy the problem as naturally as possible. Eric is so meticulous about his appearance that he'll continue to be a real honey after everyone is old and gray. I don't plan on getting old and gray either -- I'll probably be the only 89 year old blonde on the planet -- except for the one on the cover of Tonight You're Mine... But a shaved head???!!! Kirk, REALLY -- where did you get THAT one from?!!! Eric would NEVER do that -- WOULD he, Kirk? You know him better than we do... --Darlene confusedwink

Darlene, I just threw that one out there because I wanted to see if the picture I picked out was going to work. But sometimes it's fun to jump in when you ladies are going ga-ga over Eric and bring you back to earth! I don't think his hair is going anywhere, soon- Kirk (with all of his hair intact)

I was wondering how everyone got their pictures under their names, I must have missed that somewhere!?! I have a few more posts to go. Personally, I like his hair now. I was never a big hair person, but at least Eric's hair always looked well groomed, not like all rock stars. But I do like the shorter look, it makes him look more mature and more modern. smile

Laura, Check out Bernie's reply to me on "Eric on Tour 2002" when I asked him how to call the pictures up. Once you do it, it's pretty easy. --Darlene

Yeah, I found it after I posted. I always read the most recent posts first and work backwards. I posted the message, then read further 'cause I hadn't been to the site for a few days. Sometimes it's tough to get my husband off the computer so I can play! frown

Eric's hair has been a controversial topic for years, especially in the earlier days of VH-1, where I recall VJ Bobby Rivers saying his hair in the Hungry Eyes video reminded him of the hairdo on Ethyl Mertz. :rolleyes:

I actually met and became friends with Rosie O'Donnell because of a comment she made on tv about Eric's hair (long, long story).

Eric's got great hair, unbelievably thick, but oddly enough, it's thick haired people who bald quickly, because they have less hairs per square inch of scalp because the diameter of thick hair is greater than that of thin hair. But even so, I can't (and don't want to) imagine Eric going the Kojak route. I like his hair long and blonde, like on the Geffen lp cover best. It may sound trite, but I've always preferred men with longer hair, there's no denying that.

What did Rosie say? I watch her show and never heard her comment on Eric or his hair. I always hoped maybe Eric would be on her show. Can someone clue me in? Wait was this with Ringo?June confused

The comments from Rosie that I was referring to were from her days as a VH-1 "VJ." Eric's "Make Me Lose Control" video played a lot back then, and Rosie never missed her chance to sting him about his abundant hair. Can't remember the specific words she used after all these years, however.

Rosie was just jealous because his hair looked far

better than hers. She's probably just kind of jealous of sexy people because she isn't. Ethel

Mertz?????!!!!!! Really Rosie, how ridiculous!!!!

I think hers kind of looks like FRED's.

LOL, Darlene!!! Rosie didn't say his hair looked like Ethyl Mertz's, Bobby Rivers said that!

June, the things Rosie said that I was referring to, she said when she was a VJ on VH-1. The one in particular I wrote her about was when she said Eric had to cancel out on one of the Dirty Dancing Concert dates because he had injured his eye with a hairbrush. She said "like we're supposed to believe he ever brushes that hair?!"... needless to say, I wanted to wring her neck, but I kept my cool and wrote her a very nice letter and asked why she picked on Eric so much and told her I liked him. She wrote back, I replied, she replied, etc. Before long, I went to NJ to see her in person, and she came to our table for a while and bantered with us. She also invited us to the tapings of her first 11 VH-1 "Standup Spotlight" shows, we're right out there in front on those 11 shows. We were in constant contact for over 2 years, I even had her home address and phone number. And it all came about because I was an Eric fan... She was a very different Rosie then than she is now.

Pretty cool Julia. Sounds like fun to me. I live in the noth-east and the DJ's around here have never been nice to Eric. I have no idea why but they just couldn't resist to say something. Being such a good fan this really upset me, however I have found that up here we are the exception. I used to watch VH1 back then and I remember Rosie but I never did catch that paticular comment. However, It has been said, that my memory went on vacation and got lost and has yet to find his way back to me, in other words, I am getting old. JUNE :rolleyes:

I think Eric should spike his hair and dye it some unusual color. snicker. Just kidding. I love his hair anyway he wears it. After all it is his head. Besides I am not worried about his hair. I just like to hear him sing and play that ringing guitar.

Gemini cool
