Devilock

The Misfits

Girlie Action
Definition: After the mohawk, there aren't many punk hairstyles more iconic than the devilock. First created by Misfits bassist Jerry Only in the early days of the band, the devilock consists of keeping one's hair short on the sides and back, while the bangs are grown long and groomed to a point.

Influences of the devilock have been credited to skateboard hairstyles, '50s greaser styles, Eddie Munster and rockabilly pompadours. In reality, it's most likely a combination of all of these.
