Hair Hitler!

Some people are known by their hair. Look at this poster by Paula Scher. And this. And these fab four. But this fellow is the quintessential hair brand. I’ve assembled a few renditions of hairmarks. Of course, let’s not forget the mustache. And for more on how an appearance becomes a brand, read this. Oddly, the style seems to be returning:

In Berlin, where National Socialist connotations are more troubling, variations on the hairstyle have become common in fashionable quarters of Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg, said Annika von Taube, the editor in chief of Sleek, an art and fashion magazine there. But no one associates it with fascism, ironically or not.

    Fitting that you featured this after a session of skull art.

    Keep up the great work, however. All design is good. All good design is better. But sometimes bad design is very funny, and some folk design and graffiti is pretty awesome.
