Wesley Crusher’s Sweet-Ass Motherfucking Bouffant

When I was a teenager pretending to fly a spaceship, I got to do a lot of really cool things with a lot of really cool people. The price of admission to this wonderful world, though, was the most annoying hairdo I've ever experienced in my life. I called it Wesley's Helmet Hair, because it did not move at all once the hair department shellacked it, and I really, really hated it.

There was some decree that hair was perfect in the future, so before every take, one of the hairdressers would come over and drop a small cloud of hairspray around my head. By the end of the day, it was like there was this foreign thing sitting on top of my skull that I couldn't wait to get home and wash off (I clearly remember showering after work, and feeling a slick of
hairspray and other products run down my back, like I was living out some horrible fanfic. Ugh, I'm getting chills
just thinking about it) and when they finally retired this particular hairdo, I may have cried tears of relief.

Well, yesterday, I learned that a friend of @MartySever's loved Wesley's helmet hair as much as I hated it.

BEHOLD!

  1. OK, Wil. I admit it was a bit ‘poofy’ but come on. We ARE talking about the 80s. That was how everyone was wearing their hair at that time. And that grease look was ‘in.’ It wasn’t that bad. For myself, I would have preferred a much shorter do. Something longer than a military shave but shorter than what you had. Would definitely have gotten rid of the grease too!

  3. Wouldn’t Wesley have been flammable with all that hairspray? Better be careful in engineering, what with the things going explodee an’ sparks an’ that.
