Howard Jones' Nine Definitive Hairstyles

Sadly, many of the best moments of Howard Jones' impressive synth-pop career have been forgotten. This isn't about the music, though. "No One Is to Blame" will play on the Lite-FM station piping in during your next routine cleaning at the dentist -- better than Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" any day. Add "Things Can Only Get Better" (the one that goes "whoa-whoa-whoaaaa-whoa-whoa-whoaaaa"), "What is Love," "You Know I Love You... Don't You?" and the sweet blast of "Everlasting Love" as prime examples of his songwriting acumen.

Instead, let's revisit the magnificent mane. The lovely locks. The stupendous spikes. Even to this day, HoJo has single-handedly kept Aqua Net in business by putting enough fancy touches on his signature locks to put even A Flock of Seagulls to shame. As his performance at the Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center approaches on Wednesday, October 13, it's high time for a sampling of the amazing cranial sculptures Jones has erected over the years. There are surely hundreds, but we have nine below.
