Best and Worst Hairstyles of 2012

There have been some truly horrendous hairstyles over 2012. Some I never thought were even possible until I saw the accident with my own eyes. It was difficult choosing only 10 ugly styles as there were so many, but we’d be here forever if we went through all of them. So here I’ve tried to collect what I think are the top ten worst hairstyles of 2012. Please brace yourselves readers, the following photos are not for the faint hearted.


Worst hairstyles of 2012:

5. Changmin’s acorn head hair.


It partially makes Changmin look like an acorn, and it completely makes him look ridiculous. The cut isn’t even symmetrical, to add insult to injury and just everything looks wrong. SM either needs to hire new stylists or stop the current ones from cutting idols’ hair wearing a blindfold – I can’t imagine any other way this atrocity could have happened.

4. MBLAQ’s Mir and his weird, braided mullet.


I hate mullets. They’re not a good look, so why on earth this year I’ve seen so many guys try to pull them off is confusing as hell. I don’t know, maybe the stylists were going for something different? Or Mir insulted their mother and now they’re out for revenge? There’s definitely a moral that comes with this hairstyle. Don’t insult anyone who has control over your hair; It will end badly.

3. Block B’s Zico


Zico has successfully managed to combine the two hairstyles I hate the most into one hideous mess. Why exactly anyone thought that it would be a good idea to mix the mullet (which hasn’t been fashionable anywhere outside of Russia since the 1980s) with dreadlocks is beyond me. Instead of looking like a cool pirate, Zico actually reminds me of a tramp who could really do with a flea bath. I’m pretty sure there are creatures living in that hair. The only thing I’m not sure about with this style is whether it’s better or worse than Zico’s debut hair; and a large part of me thinks that this is probably irrelevant, because both looked terrible.

2. Taeyang


Fighting hard for the position of ‘worst hair of 2012,’ Taeyang was very close to topping the list. Having basically had the same style for most of his time in Big Bang, for some reason he (or a mad/evil stylist) decided he needed a change. However, instead of choosing an attractive style, Taeyang instead has a hair style that is probably one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen before on someone’s head. Did he forget to take his hair rollers out the day of the shooting? I have no idea what is going on with this, I’m just hoping to never see it again, and hopefully it will be buried with 2012, never to resurface again.


1. G-Dragon


It was fierce competition this year as to who deserved the title of ‘Worst hair of 2012,’ but GD has truly earnt it. Starting 2012 as he meant to go on, GD began Big Bang’s comeback promotions with this weird weave fringe thing, that no matter how he wore it, looked at best ridiculous and at worst like a dead squirrel. Cute.

Next, not to be outdone by Taeyang in the Monster music video, GD choose this horrifically ugly blonde bowl cut. They say a photo can speak a thousand words. If the photo could speak, it would scream one word only, “ugly.”

I’m afraid that we’re still not done. GD is a repeat hair offender, he does not quit with the bad hair. Ever. Dyeing his hair pink wasn’t the worst thing he’s ever done, but the styling leaves a lot to be desired. I’m not a fan of this hair at all, but at least it’s an improvement on the Monster hair. GD has committed too many hairstyle faux pas this year to list them all, so I’ll conclude the list here. Just remember one thing readers, never, no matter how good you think it will look, try to imitate GD’s hair. It will only lead to misery and really awful split ends.

Best Hair of 2012

5. CL


In 5th place we have CL of 2NE1, looking gorgeous in blonde. I think CL always looks her best as a blonde, the colour really suits her and almost feels natural. In the two top pictures her hair looks chic and screams ‘fashionista.’ In the larger picture below, CL’s hair is more feathered and layered, creating a messy, yet classy, and ultimately sexy look that I can’t help but adore. CL has such a powerful image even outside of 2NE1, and I think her ability to exude confidence means she can really make styles like this look even better than they would on someone else.

4. Yezi


In 4th place I decided to put Fiestar’s super talented maknae rapper, Yezi. I thought she deserved to be this high on the list mainly because over this year she has consistently had beautiful hair. Unlike other idols who have dyed their hair awful colours or had weird (and absolutely not wonderful) styles, Yezi’s hair has always looked good. As you can see, she looks good with blonde and dark hair, and a mixture of colours too!

3. Fei


Miss A’s beautiful goddess Fei looked truly stunning this year with her hair in ‘I Don’t Need a Man.’ The reason I like this hair so much is that you hardly see any idols using this kind of style, so I like that it stands out and it makes Fei look great. She was definitely the one holding my attention the most during the music video, JYP’s hair stylists did a fantastic job here.

2. Hyoyeon


I don’t think there was anyone who didn’t love how Hyoyeon’s hair looked in this teaser photo! Rainbow coloured hair has the potential to look a bit crap sometimes, but combined with the base of blonde hair, this looks really cool. In fact, this looks so good that I won’t be surprised if we see more idols with rainbow coloured hair in 2013, trying to pull off a similar look.


1. Nana


It was unbelievably difficult to decide which idol should be given the title of ‘Best Hair of 2012’ but despite the very fierce competition, Nana of After School is our champion! Sporting really beautiful long blonde hair, Nana seems to always look amazing, no matter what style her hair is in. And this is the reason why I feel she most deserved this award, because her hair looks literally perfect pretty much all the time. Even though her hair might not be as bright and colourful as the other idols on this list, I feel that her hair is stunning enough even without bright colours, and therefore she truly has earnt her title. Congratulations, Nana!

[A/N: For the full list (there were 10 in each list altogether, you can read the full article here.]

nana perfect
(this post is brought to you by the beauty of Nana's hair)

So Omona, do you agree? Or do you feel like I've missed someone?

Which idol had the worst hair of 2012?

They were all equally tragic
Another idol not on the list

Which idol had the best hair of 2012?

Park Bom
They were all equally beautiful
Another idol not on the list

I've never done a poll before so I'm really sorry if anything is wrong or not working o_o;;

smh at them ignoring the good hairstyles gd had. he was def not the worst.
xredada 4th-Jan-2013 09:59 am (UTC)
I think GD had the worst hairstyles of the year but also the best lol. I was expecting him to top both lists in a surprise turn of events.
shining_lore 4th-Jan-2013 09:55 am (UTC)
Hyoyeon can get a bit brassy for my taste, but she usually pulls it off, and Fei's hair is always Sick'ning!
taiyouhana 4th-Jan-2013 09:57 am (UTC)
I don't follow BlockB, so when I saw Zico's hair I legit thought he turned really fast and it was a camera blur or something like that.

Wow. If only. (Love this post, btw!)
xredada 4th-Jan-2013 10:01 am (UTC)
Sohee is my hair queen. Always soo shiny and perfect <3
pivotandsway 4th-Jan-2013 10:05 am (UTC)

uglypricetag 4th-Jan-2013 10:02 am (UTC)
zico looks like the by product of a human mating with a sea creature

the lens, the textured hair at the bottom... everything's a hot mess

You know you can edit your vote in these polls, right? You click on Poll #1888503, then "complete the poll" or something and then you can recast your vote.

Changmin's hair is thankfully much better now OTL

Hyoyeon looks lovely with that rainbow hair and Nana is a goddess.
mimic 4th-Jan-2013 10:26 am (UTC)
It's really not smh such a shame :/.

g_odalisque13 4th-Jan-2013 10:09 am (UTC)
gd should not win worst hair. the hair in monster was a wig, so that shouldn't even be counted. and the pink hair was fabulous when it wasn't parted in the center.
also, NOTHING is worse than whatever the fuck was happening on taeyang's head in thr monster mv. that was so tragic.

as far as best goes, my favorite was key's blonde hair with the pink bangs. and that wasn't on the poll. so.
lee_chikin 4th-Jan-2013 11:23 am (UTC)
Key usually has very good hairstyles, I too loved the pink bangs, but the author seemed to ignore good male hair for the most part :/
the_erotomanic 4th-Jan-2013 10:10 am (UTC)
i really liked dara's hair in the i love you video. it was a welcome departure from her usual weird hair.

benihime99 4th-Jan-2013 10:42 am (UTC)
I love it too
ashiva 4th-Jan-2013 10:12 am (UTC)
Voted for GD for best hair even if he was also my second choice for worst hair (Taeyang won him over in that one with his continuity with bad hairdos) 'cause the boy had also some seriously fab hair going on this year.

Omona has seen the light and Taeyang is rightly being crowned bad hair king of 2012
mimic 4th-Jan-2013 10:15 am (UTC)
When I saw Taeyang's monster hair-do come up in the music video-- I legit replayed it and laughed hard for a good 10 minutes. He looked like a trannylicious ram or baphomet.

All the awards for Taeyang.
lee_chikin 4th-Jan-2013 11:31 am (UTC)
Personally I've always thought he took inspiration from Mel Brooks
