The 11 Most Life-Changing Hairstyles in the History of Christian Rock

Christian rockers have given many things to the world of popular music: Ballads about fighting the devil; mind-bending album cover art; an entire catalogue of songs about purity.

But one of the genre’s most underrated contributions to culture is its revolutionary hairstyles that, in some cases, have made people literally reconsider what is even possible with enough mousse and sheer hubris.

Now, we know what some of you are going to say and angrily comment on Facebook: “Hey, wait a minute?! Some of these are not rock bands! More like IRrelevant Magazine! UNFOLLOW!”

But hair’s the thing: Rock and roll isn’t about electric guitars or big choruses. Rock and roll is a state of mind. And if you can honestly look at any of the following pictures and tell us that any of these individuals don’t exude pure rock attitude, than you, friend, have probably never rocked.

Here are the 12 most life-changing haircuts in the history of Christian rock.

The Tumbleweed – Stryper

Each of these haircuts is fantastic and could probably warrant a spot on the list. But the only fair way to break a four-way tie is to just choose the one with the most volume.

The Great Gazoo – The Faith Tones

This impressive creation is the hair version of the helmet Gazoo wore on the Flintstones.

The Swoop – “Randy”

This shag mop was literally too cool for an actual human being.

The Pit Stop – Sweet Comfort Band

This member of the Sweet Comfort Band looks like he is capable of both a face-melting guitar solo and winning the Daytona 500. Respect.

Head Bangs – Sacred Warrior

Another tough one, but we think we made the right call.

The Part – White Cross

The physics of this one are pretty confusing.

The Suave – DeGarmo and Key

We don’t even need to see the top of this dude’s head to appreciate the smooth doo.

The Kenny Powers – White Cross


The MxPx Logo Dude

Truly an icon.

The Mutton – Country Church

The bold facial hair choice really pulls the whole thing together.

The Sculpture – Orvel and Orvella

Orvella has created nothing short of a masterpiece.
