Must-Read: Worst Hairstyles of All Time
We’ve all had those terrible days where we take a shower, start brushing our hair, and for whatever reason we cannot get things just right. We try and try as we can, standing in front of the mirror for what seems like hours at a time, and the hair on our head simply won’t do what we want it to. Maybe it’s time for a haircut, maybe there’s a colic that is making matters terrible, maybe it’s just not our lucky day. But luckily, that bad hair day is gone and out of our system by the next time we take a shower.
But there is also the other, worse hair situation: Where you are actually intentionally giving yourself a shit haircut. And while it may be “in,” it may be the “current style,” it’s important to know the history of terrible men’s haircuts. We must learn from our past. So today we’re heading to AskMen.com where they have this little doozy of a list: “The 10 Worst Men’s Hairstyles of All Time.” Among the horrific memories that they are bringing up to us:

It also required a sleeping cap and heavy-duty moisturizers to keep the hair wet — a hallmark of this circa ’75 style. Then, during daytime hours, this dripping ‘do would destroy your life by staining clothing, furniture and basically anything in its path. Remember Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction? You get the picture.
Bad haircut indeed. Head on over to the link above to check out the other hairstyles that we’re all thankful for them going by the wayside.
