Hairstyles / February 15, 2022

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but let’s be real: Some high-profile hairstyles defy that cliché. Enter Shia LaBeouf. The actor-cum-eye-roll has been sporting a rattail/Mohawk hybrid that — despite what Vanity Fair thinks — is nothing short of aesthetically profane. And he’s only the latest offender.

Brace yourself for celebrity hair don’ts of the highest order. In fairness, omitted are stars who’ve turned questionable ’dos into iconography (Dolly Parton, Helena Bonham Carter, Carrot Top), as well as the overtly unhinged (Britney Spears, Amanda Bynes), anything pre-2000 and all off-duty paparazzi shots.

This chopping block is reserved for those who stepped into the spotlight looking crazy on purpose.

Shia LaBeouf

Maybe he’ll let someone cut it off during his.

Jared Leto

Back in 2007, before his sandy balayage became an Internet fetish, Jared Leto lived in emo hell as that guy from My Chemical Romance, dip-dyed locks as dark as his soul — or at least his eyeliner.

Justin Timberlake

The year was 2000. Two years later, 50 Cent dropped “Wanksta” off the “8 Mile” soundtrack. Connect the dots.

Jennifer Lawrence

The pixie cut has become a rite of passage for the thoughtful, elevated actress (Natalie Portman, Carey Mulligan, Emma Watson, etc.). Unfortunately for Lawrence, the style on her — debuted in November 2013 — was less Edie Sedgwick-cute, more Kate Gosselin-confused.

Jennifer Lopez

Ladies and gentlemen, presenting queen of subtle Jennifer Lopez. The attendee who sat behind her at the 2002 Oscars is still seething.

Kelly Osbourne

Papa don’t need to preach — the punk-pink nest Kelly had during the early-2000s “Osbournes” era speaks for itself.

Kaley Cuoco

“WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?” some demanded. “It looks like if you knocked on it, the noise would echo for miles, ” they jeered. Luckily, the bangs Cuoco flaunted at the 2013 SAG Awards were simply part of a wig — a wig that almost ended her career.

Justin Guarini and Kelly Clarkson

Flashback to 2002’s terrible hair twofer: For Guarini, the problem wasn’t so much the ’fro as it was the face. But together with Clarkson’s skunk-like highlights, it was all just too much.

Katherine Heigl

No one likes Katherine Heigl, so it’s safe to assume the June Carter Cash bouffant she wore to the 2010 premiere of “The Killers” was an act of sabotage.

Nicole Richie

Not going to lie — we miss 2003 Nicole Richie. Her curly-fry lowlights really complemented those F-bombs and “J’Adore Dior” T-shirts.

Keith Urban

Keith Urban has enjoyed a fruitful, 25-year career. That’s 25 years he’s had to right the persistent wrong that is this haircut.

Scarlett Johansson

Remember 2003, when Scarlett Johansson had a mullet? It was part of a whole indie thing she was trying to work back in the day. Key word: trying.

Tyra Banks

It never fails to impress us what Tyra Banks can do with a little imagination and a whole lot of weave. At the 2004 Vibe Awards, the look was newly electrocuted humanoid alien a la “Dragon Ball Z.”

Miley Cyrus

We’re all for long-hair liberation, but the “new Miley” peroxide cockatoo ’do we got in 2012 was — and remains — an unsightly, attention-seeking ploy that Pink did first (and better).
