The 10 Most Ridiculous Hairstyles Ever!
By no means am I an expert on fashion. I'll never be a stylist to the stars, but doggone it, I do know an awful hairstyle when I see one. I love doing lists acknowledging greatness, but at times noting the not so great, is just as fun. Through tireless research, I've found many outrageous styles of hair. During this list, I will provide commentary on the 10 most ridiculous hairstyles known to mankind.
An awfully bad hairstyle will usually provoke three emotions, pictured below.
Upon sight, you will see children laughing at ...YOU! Kids are very impulsive and will find the ridiculousness of your hair beyond amusing.
She is displaying the classic "oh no he/she didn't", look. One half of her wants to laugh while the other half questions your level of sanity.
For the elderly, anything beyond a traditional hair style is very shocking to them. After seeing you, they will tell anyone willing to listen, about what they saw.
Let The Countdown Begin!
1. The Jheri Curl
From the early to mid 1980s, this was a hairstyle worn mostly by Black men and women. Yes, being a child of the '80s I wore one myself. It was a style hard to maintain. Dryness would make it look bad, you had to apply a moisturizer, also known as Jheri Curl" juice. To avoid staining pillowcases, clothing, and other surfaces, you had to wear a plastic shower cap when you slept at night. Hairstyles come and go, but I will never, I repeat NEVER wear a Jheri Curl again! Who in the hell was Jheri anyway?!
2. Helicopter Hair
There has to be nothing more ridiculous than this. Why would anyone want their hair shaped in to a helicopter? To give her the benefit of the doubt, maybe she was in a hair show, where craziness like this is expected. Thankfully, I've never saw another person try this. Imagine years later trying to explain this to your children.
3. Animal Hair
I thought helicopter lady would take home top prize, boy was I wrong. This style actually is quite scary. Is that a dog, horse, or goat? Regardless to what animal it may be, it should not be on her or anyone's head, EVER! I'd bet she doesn't go on too many blind dates. Can you imagine preparing for your date, having butterflies while driving there, and then finally arriving for your date with horsehair lady?! I wish her and her hair all the luck in the world.
4. Hat Hair
In America, we have the freedom of expression. This gentleman decided to express himself by having his hair cut into a baseball cap. Poor fella, maybe he's deprived of attention at home. Perhaps, he's not the assertive type and figured this would get him noticed. I still haven't come to a conclusion on who's worse. Is it him for wanting this style or the barber for actually doing it? I wonder if he ever gets tired of all those, "sir, could you remove your hat" jokes?
5. Weird Hair
I don't know what this is or what even to compare it to. It's almost like spokes on a wheel or a Ferris Wheel. Maybe she was going for the Lady Liberty look. I admire her confidence, because you have to be an amazingly thick skinned individual to pull this one off. Congratulations, Spoke Head.
6. Oreo Head
Why on Earth would anyone want to display the Oreo's brand in their hair? I'm guessing she was in a hair show for this nonsense to be on display. I can't believe it. What's to gain by coloring your hair and promoting junk food? Unless Nabisco, offers you a contract to endorse a product, keep it out of your hair! When she looks back on her life, will she remember this moment proudly? I can hear her now. "Back in my younger days, I once wore the Oreo's wrapper in my head, it was one of the greatest times in my life." Whatever.
7. Half Braids/Half Afro
Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum, decided halfway through getting his hair braided to get up and leave. This was a poor attempt at undeserved attention. After signing a multi-million dollar contract, he did not play in one game the whole season! While he does have a pair of bad knees, that kept him playing, he could at least keep his cornrows tight. After basically robbing the team of money by not playing, there's no excuse for an intentionally jacked up hairstyle like this.
8. Half Mullet
Just like the Jheri Curl, this style was popular in the '80s. Consisting of shaved sides and long in the back, it was a popular hairstyle among all people. This youngster decides to put his own twist to an already questionable style to begin with. While not nearly as ridiculous as some of the others on this list, it is still an awful haircut. The saving grace to this is that he's a child and still has an innocence. With such a display of bad hair, his smile shines bright.
9. Soup Bowl
This is one of, if not the most ridiculed hair cut ever, It's not called the bowl for no reason. Round and very unattractive, it was a sure sign that one of your parents attempted to cut your hair. Well, after looking at the gentleman in the picture, I wonder. Did he go to a professional for this? Better yet, why did he ask for it? After writing away here, I realize that a stylist will do whatever you request because they are getting paid for it. Lastly, is this guy in the photo smiling or in pain?
This leaves me almost speechless. When he sat down in the chair, I'm certain he told the stylist to make him look as ridiculous as possible. If it wasn't for his smile and clothing intact, I'd of thought he had survived some sort of catastrophe. In all reality he did. Why would anyone want to look like this? The scary part is that someone told him it looks great. He is one brave man to go out in public like this. His hair is almost shaped like a harp! While I admire his bravery, at the same time I am puzzled by this beyond ridiculous hairstyle.
In conclusion, while these are without a doubt some of the worst hairstyles ever, they're completely harmless. As I mentioned, I even admire some of them for wearing such a style that will bring them stares and comments from others. It's cool that we all have our own individuality. As long as they continue to look ridiculous, I'll continue to write about them. See ya!
