Hairstyle trends come and go. Some are more sophisticated than others. While some of these ridiculous haircuts are absurd, others might work in the right setting. Don’t let us tell you how you should wear your hair. The world will notice your self-confidence if you’re not afraid to flaunt a crazy style.
Got sideburns? You can dye them with bright colors. Show off the dye job by slicking your hair back with gel. The wet look will turn heads, and you can always wear your hair down to hide the color.
Rolled Long Beehive
If you want an ornate hairdo without the updo, loop 1-inch sections of hair individually. Secure them underneath with hairpins, tucking the ends under as you move down the length. It's like a French braid on crack.
Mermaid For Men
We're not quite sure what to call this. Maybe the fish-scale look is popular on some remote island. When you see this from farther away, it probably looks much better. It’s like an impressionist painting. However, this is an example of how texture might work for you in the right setting.
You can probably reproduce this style yourself. There is nothing blended about this highlighted look. Solid chunks of light color are perfectly spaced for a bold and buzzworthy head of hair. This is a strong look that might be ideal for your sense of style.
The Hair Bow
Can't find an accessory? Use your hair to create a bow shape. You'll look like a gift that's ready to be unwrapped.
Can't decide what type of braid to create? Make them all. Just place a rubber band between each section. This is a fun and interesting look, and it gives you a chance to practice your braiding technique. A uniform braid might look a little sleeker, though.
This style just looks painful. Shave one side and braid the rest. You'll probably have to shave your whole head to get them out anyway.
Put A Ring On It
Accessorizing your hair isn't anything new. Still, these Mickey-mouse space buns dotted with rings look a little silly.
What's worse than one ridiculous haircut? Two of them. This one is a little too tall to realistically last all day. It’s a little like the popular pompadour, but we’re hearing a lot of ‘80s music in the background.
Side Bang Mohawk
Maybe if this Mohawk was a little more faded, it would just be cool. The transition looks a little too much like fringe for our liking. The blunt edge along the side would look amazing if it were more tapered.
Thing one and thing two called. They want their hairstyles back. The man bun is popular these days. Some people love it, and some people hate it. This version is a little too splashy for our liking.
Extensions Gone Bad
When you can't afford to pay for extensions at the salon, just tie a ring into the back of your head. You can hang the rest of your hair off of the ring and remove it when you want to return to your shorter cut. This look kind of freaks us out. It looks like something important is missing.
Fuzzy Wuzzy Was A Bear
This mullet forgot the part about business in front. This might compete with Trump’s hairstyle as one of the most ridiculous haircuts ever.
When you can't decide how to color your hair, just divide it up. Layer it like a sundae. Make sure to heavily spray those enormous curls. Don't forget the cherry on top, though.
Bedhead Gone Bad
Even celebrities have bad hair days. This is a dramatic take on the messy bun. Rihanna normally has beautifully styled tresses, but she must have just rolled out of bed.
This haircut certainly has smooth and sleek going for it. It looks like you'd have to make friends with your round brush and hair dryer to pull this off.
You'd need to be in a place with no wind and no humidity to have success with this style. Maybe it would work in outer space. It’s incredibly impressive. You can put up your own Mohawk or Liberty spikes if you have the time and the skill.
We are fans of short, choppy hair. We want to love the edginess of this style. We just can't get over the contrast from the front to the back. Maybe if the fringe in the front was just a tad softer or the layers in the back were straighter, this haircut would work better.
Colorful Mouse Ears
Earth to whoever is listening. This one has great color, but the style is tough to pull off. The space ears look like antennae, especially with the crazy hue. If you have the right attitude, you can probably wear this style, however.
One side of the hair is jet black. The other side is pure white. There's definitely a Cruella De Vil vibe going on here. It’s bold, and the braid emphasizes the contrast. However, this has to be a tough color scheme to keep up with. Once the roots grow in, you have yet another color to deal with.
Do you get some kind of prize if you can recreate this style? The hair itself looks like some kind of trophy.
Circle Of Fun
This style will have your mind going in circles. It transforms your head into a giant pacifier. You’d have fun at a picnic, though. You could use the hoop to toss beanbags through or to make a target for Frisbee golf.
Can't get your beehive to stay up? Tie your hair around a ball of stuffing. You can make friends with the sheep.
A rose by any other name isn't always a rose. Although this one is rich with beauty, it's a little over the top. This looks pristine now, but imagine what it might look like at the end of the night. This hairstyle probably doesn’t lend itself well to a night of dancing. With a few hairs out of place, it probably just looks like a giant knot on top of the head.
You'd probably have this look in this face too if your hair was pulled this tightly. The combination of braids and softness is like an art form. However, it doesn’t look very comfortable.
Under The Sea
The scalloped edges of this design belong somewhere on the sand. It’s so stylized that it no longer looks like hair.
How long would your hair have to be to build it up this high? Don’t even get us started on those shoulder pads.
This is certainly a horse of a different color. The artistry is quite skillful. We’re just not sure we’d want this on our heads.
It must take more than ten fingers to weave these complicated braids. There’s something soothing about the repetitive pattern, though.
Reverse Buzz Cut
Haven't you always wanted eyes in the back of your head? This gives a whole new meaning to the term two-faced. We wouldn’t want to be standing behind this guy; we would have the strange feeling that we were being watched.
Take off on a hairstyle journey by adding propellers. Just don’t spin them if you don’t want your hair to end up in a knot.
We’re ok with spiders. We just don’t like thinking that they might be stuck in our hair. At least you wouldn't see the spider on your head unless you looked in a mirror.
You Say Tomato
I say tomahto. However, it's also possible that this is a strawberry. What do you think?
“I would like a rainbow-colored chameleon on my head,” said no one ever, except maybe this guy.
If your hat is always leaving an indentation on your hairstyle, flaunt it. Just cut outside of the boundaries of the hat and voila. You never have to worry about it ruining your hair again.
Forget boho style. This is the perfect updo for a music festival. Make sweet music with your hairstyle.
Weave yourself a basket. Just do it on your head. This hairstyle has a beautiful sculptural quality. It doesn’t look very convenient, though. It doesn’t even seem like this basket would be useful for holding anything.
If all you see in the mirror is the front, why bother styling the back? Spend all of your time getting the front as meticulous as it is in this hairstyle.
Ride The Wave
The style and the color have inherent allure. It's just not a very practical look. In fact, it doesn’t look like it uses any hair pins to stay in place.
Rollers In Your Hair
It looks like this woman forgot to remove the tools that she used to create this style. It also looks like she used quite a lot of different tools. Some of them might have been power tools, actually.
This crimped yellow monstrosity is exploding off the top of this guy’s head. Do you think he notices?
Beard On Top
Too bad you didn't have this haircut in grade school so that you could fool all the teachers into thinking you were doing work while you were napping. Why isn’t this considered one of the top short men’s hairstyles?
This cut is enough to make you want a piña colada. If you want a more permanent solution, you can just bleach your buzz cut.
The short bob gets edgy with a gelled widow's peak. Don’t let the wind get to this haircut, or it will completely lose its edge.
These hair tapestries are actually a really cool alternative to those hair wraps that look like friendship bracelets. They’re really colorful, and they don’t look that hard to apply if you have help. We're just not sure how you'd get them out without chopping off your hair.
The Perfect Pouf
Get your hair to stand on end with the perfect amount of teasing and a few bottles of hairspray. We can’t believe this was a style worn by school-age girls. Who has that much time to do their hair before the bus comes?
Ouch. There's not much more to say. Imagine how heavy this would feel on your head. We don’t want to know what would happen if you spent too much time in the sun.
The Literal Rat Tail
As if a regular rat tail wasn't bad enough, this one is enough to make you scream.
Remember when it was cool to look like you never showered? Even the hottest celebrities were doing it.
Excuse me, sir. You missed a spot. This cut would be great if you tend to forget to put sunscreen on the back of your neck.
The Bottom Line
A new haircut might take some getting used to. However, if your stylist gives you one of these ridiculous haircuts, you might be allowed to ask for a free shave.
