Nikki Sixx’s hairstyle.
With locks as heavy and lush as his bass, Nikki Sixx, at 49, can even give the young ‘mtv playing and an icons’ a run for their money. The wayward life, strings of high-profile affairs, aggressive bass-equally melodious voice has set him apart from the rest of the contemporary ‘metalheads’. A carefree rock star Nikki Sixx is a trend setter in the truest sense.
Nikki Sixx has been a mini-revolutionary all through. Behind the glitz and the glamour of this rock star, there is many a dark tale to tell. Born on December 11, 1958, in San Jose, CA. life was not at all beautiful for Nikki. Deserted by his father at a young age, he was raised by his mother, Deana. After spending most of his childhood and youth in hardship, heaven finally smiled upon him. It was only after meeting with Don Zimmerman did his life take a turn. Motley Crue, the band formed in 1980 saw the birth of a star – Nikki Sixx.
We love him for his songs. We love him for his style too. We looked up to him during the ‘hair metal’ movement. Eclectic, a blend of glamour and punk rock, all the adjectives hold true to describe Nikki’s style. No matter with which bands he connects himself, be it Mötley Crüe or Sixx: A.M., Nikki Sixx is undoubtedly a fashion icon. From the crew cut in his early days to the mop-top hairdo at his youth to the recent punk, frizzy hair style, this man has been through it all, and with great élan. The shoulder length hair with layers on the top to create volume gives an edgy look to the haircut.
The ‘Motley’ hairstyle has been ruling the fashion circuit since 1980. The long voluminous hair usually teased or permed has hit the right chords – among both genders. Presently Nikki is sporting a blood-red streak to one side, and plans to add a few more fetching hues. As quoted by the man himself on the fan – website (absolute-motleycrue.com), “First you got to cut it real jaggedly. Then you need this stuff,” a vicious-looking pump spray. “You can’t use aerosol. Then you’ve got to dry you hair upside-down and pull it out while you do it. And of course,” of I course! “You’ve got to sleep upside-down. You sleep on your forehead. When you wake up in the morning, your hair is all messed up. And you look at yourself and you say ‘I look fine.'”
The unconventional hair do makes him stand apart from the conventional heavy metal rockers on stage. The ‘heavy at the top’ followed by ‘long traces’ is the most happening style that has caught on with the youth of today! Imagine a rock star nearing 50 years of age sporting the hair-style of the raw youth!
