Joan Jett loved rock 'n roll, and we loved that rock 'n roll hair.

When the era's big bangs became too much, we wanted to take it down a notch -- so we relied on Joan to show us how to do it and keep a badass edge.

We too wanted to rock out as we wailed on our guitars and then swing sweat off our hair in one hot mess move. Just like she did.

Of course, after all the teasing and spraying, smooth layers were nearly impossible. But we tried. Oh, did we try.
