I'm not sure there is any "Best ______" question where the answer isn't ZooTV!

Achtung Baby is their best album, so therefore his hair then was best.

Kidding aside, I was watching From the Sky Down the other night and thought he looked really good then, so that got my vote.

I think that's one of the categories at the EMAs now.

360 had two styles. Didn't like 360 2009 short but 360 in 2011 was the best.

In that case, this poll's just about over! XD  Of course I'm all about The Fly and always will be.  I can't really subscribe to the "yellow dye" he's got these days.  Sorry to you blonde fans, but it's not working for me.

The bloody Terminator look on 360 was as bad as the mullet, super uncool, not to mention the rhinoceros pants and jacket and the fugly shades.
 
People also seem to forget that the Fly hairdo was very hit and miss, some nights it looked good and even great, but on many nights it was just odd and misshapen, unkempt, not to mention he sweats so much during gigs it was slicked back for most of the concerts' duration. Plus on bad days he had a dyed black Bill Maher look, and that isn't great.

The Joshua Tree/R&H era mane looked quite good, but I wish he didn't try to go back to it on Vertigo, that was really bad too.

The Elevation hairstyle was just an inferior, boring take on the Fly look, the Vertigo semi long cut was also a variation on that, with much less hair available and aged skin, making him look worn out and untidy.

I clearly prefer the close crop, buzzcut look, he has a good head shape for it, good nose for it too. Popmart, NLOTH promo period were good.

Also like the Boy era haircut with the fringe, wasn't cool, but suited him.

Actually Bono's haircuts are becoming a historic epic of uncoolness.

He's the reason I wear a huge mullet today so there's only one right answer.

I watched some ZOO TV stuff recently and yeah, you're right, when The Fly hair got really messed up - WHOA, it's pretty rough, haha!  You're also right about Bono's POP hair, he had a good head for the buzzcut.  But any time I think of The Fly, even with the odd hair moment, I'm getting nothing but happy thoughts and feelings in ways that are (and are NOT) PG.
