It is a good look but I always prefer the look he had in the Parade era, he looked well cool then.

Love it!

Maybe except those waves at the side in this pic. Ultimate typhoon pictures are on the Come album.

I also agree with gary, Parade is #1 style wise...

I liked it, but by 1993, it was getting a little bit over the top, I think.

It's a good hairstyle, but I really like the hairstyle he has now, like on the Ellen Degeneres show the other day.

Agreed. It was cool looking in '91 and '92, but evolved to something not quite right by 1993.

I liked it. It made him seem other-worldly almost.

Do you have any pictures from The Sacrifice of Victor book?

Hated it with a passion!! I was a cosmetology student during that time and every time I saw him, I just wanted to wash his damn hair! lol
Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

I love it to the point that I wore it. Yes, me.....a guy, wore that. It had a couple of slight modifications, like no fingerwaves on the side. But back in my hair styling days, I had the leeway to do that.

And when I'd get home in the evening, I'd tie a silk scarf (from back in my suit and tie days) around my head a la Prince in "Gett Off".

I was a featured stylist in a Paul Mitchell hair show once, and I did a typhoon do on my model, and called it a Typhoon. It was a hit.

It looked good until he let it get over-grown and it started flopping down. That's when it started to look stupid. Like around The Sacrifice of Victor.

Well, Prince is GORGEOUS, SEXY, AND LOVING in above pic as in every pic, but i don't like the look of his hair sticking to his scalp, it would make it so difficult for me to run my fingers through his hair. iLOVE Prince smile heart hug kisses heart i LOVE Prince

It's okay. I hated when Prince would perform and sweat cause that gelled part would kink up and just look all kinds of WRONG. confused

I much prefer him the TAFKAP years when he had it cut short and highlighted. I can;t remember my name when I see him in that look. So pretty with his complexion and eye color! lol
I love a Man who:
Wears More Make Up Than Me.
Wears Four Inch Stilleto Boots.
Changes His Name To An Unpronouncable Symbol.
Who Changes His Name Back From An Unpronouncable Symbol.

I liked it when it got totally ridiculous, like in the Sacrifice of Victor -book / Come -album cover art, or in the "Loose!" / "Papa" -video. I do realize he must have had looked laughable when perceived upfront in real life, but then again, this was the early-90s. You still had people doing crazy but rather uncool in retrospect -shit with their hair anyway. His must have been a pain in the ass to get done each day - as far as I know, he didn't really step out in the public without his hair done and make up done during those days.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot: Prince inspired me to get fake sideburns for myself when I was 15! They were just made of plain hair and gel! lol
