The Legendary Combover

front_cover_comb.jpg

The mullet, the perm and faux-hawk are ridiculous hairstyles. But to wear them you need to have hair. An abundance of hair.

Something those who choose the combover just do not have. That is why the combover rises to the top of the worst hairdos.

It's legendary in its awfulness.

Historical laughable in any decade.

Proof? Of course we have it.


"A comb over or combover is a hairstyle worn by bald or balding men in which the hair on one side of the head is grown long and then combed over the bald area to minimize the display of baldness." - wikipedia

All you need is a comb and a few long strands of hair. No one will notice.

It's not just combover, it can be comb-forward.

Do people with combovers use hairspray? They're better off using glue or double sided clear tape.

Just because the hair has left the top of the head, doesn't stop men from inventing ways to pretend it's still there.

"At what point does a man commit to the combover? Do the math...if hair, on average, grows 1/2 inch a month, a six-inch combover would take a year's worth of effort." (link)

What do combover people fear most? Wind.
After that, scissors.

That's one way to keep the hair matted to your head.

Purdue basketball coach Gene Keady (recently retired) is famous for his magnificent black combover. Even his bobblehead sports the legendary 'do.
