Prince's hairdresser?

The man has kept the perm pretty tight for the past 30 years so i was just wondering are there any interviews or articles about who does his hair?

Jill Jones' uncle (her mothers brother) Earl Jones was employed as Prince's hairstylist for a while.

This was early in his career, not sure when.

^^ Why do you want an interview with a hairstlylist?

Do you work for the National Enquirer?

Darth Vader did his hair...wow

Mind you, all it takes now is for somebody to tuck the label in and make sure it's sitting straight

They just wanna see me swing this pretty hair

I'll be like my brother and buy some mo' - hey!"

Kim Berry does Prince's hair. She's Cali based, but flies in for the important hair issues LOL

I could read you poetry and then we could make a story of our own.

Earl Jones(Jill's uncle)was Prince's primary hair dresser until the early 1990's. He passed away after that. Since then, Prince's hair hasn't been as tight as it was through the mid 80's to 91 when Earl worked on Prince's head. I think Prince does his own hair at times nowdays. I'm sure he's learned to curl his own hair after all these years with perm.

Is Prince really balding like his Dad? OMG, OMG!biggrin Seriously, I think Prince hair was at his best during the Earl Jones years and also between 94-97" u know, his "Halle Berry" look. I think Prince looked most like a "girl" during the GB era. Aaron6ix
