10 Crimes Against Hair

Javier Bardem, No Country For Old Men
Like he'd scalped a Lego man and decided to wear his hair like a hat.
Colin Farrell, Alexander
Jesus, Colin, the roots! The roots! This is a crime against one of nature's brunettes.

Jason Isaacs, Harry Potter series
Like an even more terrifying Vanessa Feltz.
Johnny Depp, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Modelled on Michael Jackson's 'do. 'Nuff said, true believers.

Tom Hanks, The Da Vinci Code
The best thing about Angels & Demons was the relief we felt at seeing Robert Langdon no longer looking like he might present an episode of Top Gear at any second.
Richard Roxburgh, Van Helsing
His 'rock star' Dracula looked more like an accountant suffering a crippling mid-life crisis. Ponytails are not cool, especially on the greatest vampire of them all.

Nicolas Cage, Bangkok Dangerous
We could have filled this entire category with Cage coiffures, but we plumped for this horrendous Boschian bird's nest number that still has us waking up at 3am, sheets soaked with sweat.
Bruce Willis, Surrogates
In the future, posits The Surrogates, everyone can look like their ideal self. Bruce Willis' ideal self, it seems, is H from Steps.

Jon Heder, Napoleon Dynamite
The sort of hairstyle that sets the ginger movement, which has made such advances with Damian Lewis and Christina Hendricks, ten years or more.
Jason Statham, Revolver
Wiiiiiig! That's a wig, isn't it? Wig alert! Wig alert! Woooo! Wooooo!
