Summary - Robert Plant's Man Curls

Rocker Robert Plant is almost as famous for his head of glossy curls as he is for his spectacular voice.   Over the course of his career, hair color experts have questioned Robert's hair color choices.

They've also questioned how he styles his curls and whether he plans to ultimately transition to a more natural gray infused look.
