Grace Jones Hair Lexicon

Beverly Grace Jones was born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, where she grew up with her strict grandparents “I wasn’t allowed to do anything. I wasn’t allowed to watch TV, I wasn’t allowed to wear fingernail polish, I wasn’t allowed to play any games or even listen to the radio.”

Wish you were here. Grace Jones and Jerry Hall were roomies in Paris, 1973.

“Modelling is bitchy, but that’s OK because I can be very bitchy, too. And I can understand bitchiness.”

A catsuit is always a good move

“I feel feminine when I feel feminine, I feel masculine when I feel masculine – I am a role switcher,”

The iconic publicity poster for a stop on Grace Jones’s Nightclubbing record tour in France in 1981. All angles here with her memorable flat-top hairstyle & wide-shoulder suit jacket.


Grace wore an Avant-garde Issey Miyake woven rattan vest and sculpturally-pleated skirt to the Grammy Awards where she presented with Rick James.

"I never ask for anything in a relationship because I have this sugar daddy I have created for myself: me. I am my own sugar daddy. I have a very strong male side, which I developed to protect my female side. If I want a diamond necklace I can go and buy myself a diamond necklace."


Accessorized! Grace Jones at Cannes Film Festival. No rules in those days.

Not much to see here.

It's all in the details, and there are a lot of details here; from the delicate red beaded skullcap and bold red lip to the strappy turquoise kitten heel.

Love her commitment to Issey Miyake.
