Devilock

The devilock is a hairstyle created by Misfits bassist Jerry Only in the late 1970s.[1] In an early 1980s interview, Only claimed that the devilock was based on a "tidal wave" hairstyle seen among the 1970s skateboarding communities. In the same interview, former Misfits vocalist Glenn Danzig explains that his version of the hairstyle developed from an imitation of Eddie Munster's hairstyle.

In a devilock, the sides and back of the hair are kept short, while the front is kept long and combed forward.[2] In the late 1990s, the devilock experienced a resurgence of popularity in Asian markets that saw the hairstyle spread from punk rock to mainstream culture. Following popularization in Japanese and Chinese rock groups, the hairstyle's name was appropriated by Noriaki Endo in his chain of retail clothing stores.[3][4] The "Devilock" brand currently sponsors music events called "Devilock Nights" throughout Southeast Asia.[5]
