There are many techniques to get the greasy rockstar hair. You know the kind that looks dirty but awesome, gross but cool, grungy yet sophisticated.You get the picture. Here are some ways to get that nasty look before you hit the stage.
1. Don't bathe for a week (optional). Drink about two gallons of water about an hour and a half before you run three miles wearing fleece pants, two shirts, and a hoodie. After you air dry the sweat off, take a shower with a shower cap on, make sure your soap up several times. (This will insure that any possible encounters with peers is greeted with at least a ninety five percent pleasant aroma on your behalf.) When done with the showering process take any oil or grease product that is in your pantry and apply vigorously to the scalp in a circular motion. Repeat until you've reached the desired grease consistency.
2. Do as I did. Similar to option one, run out of shampoo and skip a day of washing your hair. Buy shampoo, and decide to exercise before you wash your hair. Pick some good music to listen to for a good heart pumping pace to workout to. Hit the elyptical for a half hour, work up a good sweat. Cool down with some stretches, drink some water and get ready to take a well deserved shower. Turn on the faucet to find that the water is not there. No faucet in the house has water running from it. Apparently there was a water main break just down the road and, "you'll know when the water comes back on." So now walk around with a itchy, sweat dried head, that has a subtle grease look to it, and play your guitar till the water comes on.
That's what I did. Thank goodness it wasn't a pre show workout! That would have been a disaster for everyone, not just my roommates. Still I had some pretty radical hair. Stage ready if I was going for the not bathed look. Don't think I'm quite ready for that, or if I ever will be. Who knows maybe one day. Until then. By the way this new shampoo I got is awesome!
