5 incredibly bad hairstyles in genre film


These hairstyles are more like hair bans (I’ll show myself).

Hair is a many-gorgeous wonder. It keeps our heads from being scorched by the sun, protects us from the cold, and serves as an outlet for self-expression. However, there are some cases when a daring hairstyle just doesn’t work and doesn’t become fashionable. And that’s exactly what we’re aiming for here. On this beautiful day, we look back at five hairstyles from genre pictures that managed to earn the horribly bad award.

Ruby Rhod a The fifth Element

The over the top sci-fi extravaganza The fifth Element is unforgettable for so many reasons. The colorful future depicted in the film is surreal and bizarre at the same time. But perhaps the most outrageous bit of this cinematic outing is fast-talking talk show host Ruby Rhod (Chris Tucker). Ruby’s style is loud and unusual. And he has no interest in conforming to established gender stereotypes. That in and of itself was pretty progressive for a 90’s movie. But I can’t help but think that some of Ruby’s hairstyles were a bit too “future”. Perhaps in the 23rd century, the platinum blonde hair tube poking out from his forehead is considered stylish. But at this point I can’t shake the idea that it looks a lot like a sex organ.

David a The Lost Boys

Kiefer Sutherland is a handsome guy. I’ve been a fan of his for years. But even I couldn’t quite get into his flowing blond curls The Lost Boys. Nobody looks good with a mullet. But I think that goes doubly for Sutherland. This hairstyle seems to accentuate his narrow facial features and makes his head look a bit small. Luckily she is flat liners Actor ditched the mullet some time ago and is living his best life in a more flattering way.

stormy weather coming in scream 3

Courteney Cox is an icon. And it’s an integral part of the Scream Franchise. But the baby bangs she wore in the third part of the series didn’t suit her. To be fair, they didn’t flatter Ally McBeal actress Calista Flockhart, or any other human who made the misguided attempt to try this ill-fated and short-lived trend. Luckily, Cox has a great sense of humor about the horribly bad hairdo. In fact, she’s even teased the infamous Do on numerous occasions, proving that she’s a good sport and isn’t afraid to laugh at her own expense.

John Baxter a don’t look now

Sometimes bad hair can transcend generations. And the elder Sutherland proves it with his role as John Baxter don’t look now Donald Sutherland was a handsome man when he was young. But his poodle hairstyle is masterfully exciting don’t look now did the man no favors. His hairdo looks like one of those costume wigs that my cousin and I would have lying around (and try on) at our grandmother’s house when we were kids. I think a loose, wavy look would have flattered the actor. But tight, bouncy curls just don’t do Sutherland’s features justice.

Lord Summerisle a The Wicker Man

The late, great Christopher Lee was a man of many talents. He was a prolific actor; he released a number of heavy metal records; and he eventually worked extensively as a voice actor. Lee established himself as a genre film icon through his partnership with Hammer. And he made a big impression on audiences when it was his turn as cult leader Lord Summerisle Pasture Man. While I’m sure the leader of a pagan religion has more to worry about than the way his hair falls, I have serious concerns about the actor’s incredibly poor performance in this classic film. I read that Lee’s curls should look like sunbeams. But they appear more like a big, tattered mess on his head.
