Haircuts say a lot about a person.
Feeling the winds of change? Need to make a big move in your life? Get a haircut. They can help you reinvent yourself, instilling you with some extra confidence along the way.
Turns out, ridiculous people get ridiculous haircuts. But ridiculous isn’t necessarily bad.
But every now and then, a haircut goes haywire. And sometimes it’s not the barber’s fault…
Take a gander at these 50 unfathomable haircuts. I apologize in advance for making your eyes bleed.
1. Michael Jackson
This dude really got Michael Jackson shaved into his head. Wow… just, wow. His hair is a thriller.
2. Absurd Elvis
Whoa there, that’s some huge hair. I’m not sure whether Elvis would be impressed, embarrassed, or outright ashamed. That’s one wicked hairdo.
3. Flat cap
The flat top is so 90s. Let me introduce you to the flat cap. It’s like if a flat top met a baseball cap. Your thoughts?
4. The rat tail
Well, this one’s pretty self-explanatory. But seriously, what he’s thinking?! This has to be for the laughs. It’s obviously modeled after a rat.
5. The stache
It looks like he’s growing a mustache on his forehead. Or maybe he’s part bull? Either way, I can’t fathom what I’m looking at.
6. Multicolored Mike
That half-smile makes it all the more hilarious. I can’t tell if he’s oblivious to the fact that it looks horrendous (and hilarious), or if he’s in on the joke. Either way, he’s a brave guy. Or at least a bold one.
7. Fake cornrows
These are knockoff cornrows. There’s no other way to put it. He clearly took a buzzer and ran some rows across his head. It’s hilarious and sad all at the same time.
8. Abstract art
I can get behind the idea. I can even get behind the color. But the final result? I’m not sure I can get behind that.
9. The bald eagle
Bald eagles are majestic creatures. They’re also not technically bald. I’m not sure anybody can take this guy seriously.
Check out starboy over here. Like his haircut legitimately resembles a star. Or something you’d see in a Nintendo game. It’s precise, no doubt.
11. The bat signal
Batman may very well be the greatest American superhero ever invented. He even inspired this bold haircut. I kinda like the wings.
12. Too cool for school
This looks like something a member of a boy band in the early 2000s would have done but taken to the worst extreme. The front of his hair legitimately looks like a conglomeration of icicles. I like his smiley face cutout.
13. Split hairs
Is this how you hair? Never fall asleep around people you don’t trust. And never fall asleep around that wily, wildcard friend. You never know what could happen.
Is this still technically a mullet? It’s short in the front and ridiculous in the back. Unlike the average mullet, this will definitely never catch on.
He’s got a strong signal. Feel free to connect your laptop or mobile device to his hair. He’s just just a huge tech nerd.
16. You can get deez cuttz
Some people would kill for that hairline. He just doesn’t know how to use it properly. I’m not sure the barber does either. The slogan on his bib is next level.
I’m almost certain he’s basing his style off of legendary shonen animé character Goku from Dragon Ball Z. If you’re familiar with the character, you can probably see the ridiculous resemblance. Props for putting yourself out there.
18. Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
Apparently not just Spongebob. I guess this guy technically isn’t under the sea, but he might as well be. His hair looks like a literal pineapple. That’s amazing. Just when you thought you’ve seen it all…
19. Big brother
He looks up to his big brother. Big Brother has no idea how influential he is. Perhaps too influential… This ain’t a good look.
20. Make your hair work for you
Genius comes in many forms. Here, it’s manifested in a hair-face on the back of this brilliant man’s head. It almost looks real.
21. Pink tip pigtail
What the hell is going on here? That single pigtail just ain’t it. And what’s with the pink tips? My eyes. They burn. She does not look enthused.
Is that a large beaver hanging from this man’s head? Oh wait, that’s just his insane hair. The end legitimately looks like a boot.
23. Ballsack cut
That’s… not a good look. Pardon my crudeness, but it kinda resembles male genitalia. She’s had that mortified expression ever since her new haircut. Poor thing.
24. Beyond bad hair day
That’s some bad hair. There’s no other way to slice it. This hair is legitimately gravity-defying.
25. Purple and patches
Her smile indicates that she knows something we don’t. Maybe she just knows how absurd her haircut really is. Like, the purple’s cool… but the giant bald center?
26. Bangs gone wrong
Some people like to switch it up. But what happens when bangs go wrong? Yikes. They’re clearly not even straight.
27. The hard part
That’s one hard part. The hard part about this hard part is that it looks hideous. That was actually surprisingly easy for me to say.
28. Tennis ball
He clearly modeled his absurd hair after a tennis ball. Did he pull it off? You be the judge.
Does he think his hair looks good? Really? There’s no way he actually likes the way his hair looks. The glasses and the hair make him look pretty pretentious.
30. Plateau top
We all know the flat top. But have you seen the plateau top? This thing’s reaching new heights each and every day.
31. Icicle hair
I like that he’s mixing it up. I do. But the direction he took… This is well off the beaten path. His hair resembles brown icicles.
32. Barbie hair
I’m not sure what to say. This is like a modern art piece. I heard her next project features Ken.
33. Not like father like son
His kid certainly has his eyes. But I hope to everything that he never has his hair. Is Dad’s hair even real?
34. The Danny DeVito
Danny DeVito is an icon. Have you ever seen One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest? What about It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia? If this kid’s game was to imitate Danny, he did a fantastic job.
35. Face frame
His hair looks as if he pulled a headband over his head. It’s like a frame for his face. At least he can just shave off the rest to make it look… normal.
36. Snip snap
A little snip can go a long way. But you have to remove your scrap hair… Notice how most of the worst haircuts feature unnecessary baldness?
37. Super Saiyan
This hair defies the laws of gravity. This is what Super Saiyan Vegeta would look like in real life. Okay maybe I’m the one who’s out of line now.
38. Yellow tennis ball
His head legitimately looks like a yellow tennis ball. He would fit right in on The Simpsons, too. The hair itself, though… I’m not even sure what I’m looking at. It’s that egregious.
39. Flat top won’t stop
I’ve never seen such a flat top. The curvature really adds some spunk. I wonder how many bottles of gel this guy goes through each day.
