Typhoon hairstyle questions

1st could someone in the know explain how a typhoon is even done? I've looked online to no avail. What my mortal brain can put together the sides are done in finger waves. But it almost seems like the rest of the sides are some kind of next to the skin perm. The top looks like a perm but in the 7 video (my favorite version of the typhoon)it seems like there are spikes? Lastly the hairline I can see heavy use of baby hairs. Even swooped down to the finger waves.

Lastly. I noticed that as soon as the American leg of the Act tour came around he dumped the typhoon & I'm curious why. Like was it too difficult to keep doing. I realize he had that hairstyle technically 2 years but the last version was so freaking cool it would have been nice to see more

I did a female version of the typhoon when I was in a Paul Mitchell show. I didn't do the fingerwaves but kept the sides different and the top curled and high. I told the host it was a Typhoon but not where I got the inspiration. It's a little tricky, but doable. It's curled on top, and finger waves on the side, and some finessing otherwise.

Prince refers to his hair as a typhoon in the "Gangsta Glam" video. It was his hair from Diamonds and Pearls thru the Act II tour. He cut it by the time COME was out. You can see it in "7", and in the Herb Ritts photos in The Hits/The B-Sides, among other places in that time frame. I really dug it.
