With absurdly high hair, lots of makeup and girly accessories, Poison exemplified the "hair metal" look, an offshoot of glam. Rikki Rockett was trained as a hairdresser and was responsible for much of their image.
They never broke up, although they have been inactive for long stretches, notably in the late '90s. Bands they've toured with include Def Leppard, Ratt, Tesla, Mötley Crüe and Cinderella.
Bret Michaels extended his celebrity with the 2007 VH1 reality series Rock Of Love, which was like The Bachelor but a lot sleazier. The show was a ratings success, leading to more reality TV appearances for Michaels (he won Celebrity Apprentice Season 3 in 2010) and some solo tours. During this era, it was up to him if and when Poison toured.
