Like, for instance, Sam's hair. Sam's hair is practically a character unto itself on Supernatural. Once a proud wearer of emo bangs, Sam's hair has slowly evolved over the seasons to become something more of a long mop. Unlike Dean, who always has the closely shorn, sometimes sorta spiky hair. Wouldn't it be weird to see them with reversed hair?! We would all die of shock, I'm sure.
Anyway. Here are my rankings. This is probably going to be one of the more subjective lists I've done, as everyone has different opinions and preferences for hair.
6. Season Five
His hair was under control at the beginning of the season, but got completely wacky long by the end. All I wanted was for him to get a haircut. Yeah, yeah, they're fighting the oncoming apocalypse and don't have time, blah blah. But Dean's hair is still short. And he has time to shave every day and get his sideburns just so. Man, those sideburns too! Am I wrong or did they seem to extend further into his face? Don't get me wrong, I love me some longish hair on dudes, but this was getting unruly even for me. Or not even unruly. You know what it is! It's the excessive smooth-ness! What shampoo are you using, Sammy? I want some for my hair. Maybe that is more of a Jared question.
5. Season Six
Sam wore a heck of a lot of plaid in season six, huh? I swear each cap is from a different episode throughout the season. Now let's get real, his hair does not look a heck of a lot different in season six than it did in season five, but it was slightly more manicured, and that's why it goes a slight notch above five.
4. Season Two
By the end of season two, they had finally seemed to figure out what to do with his hair, but whoa, look at that hair from Everybody Loves a Clown! Some kind of helmet-y thing happening, for real. I'm kind of in straight up love with his hair in the second picture, all flipped out on the ends. But yes, you can see here how the texture is not as smooth as the above two seasons, and I apparently like that. Am I alone?
3. Season One
Aw, the adorable emo bang mop of season one. Sometimes I still miss this hairstyle, but I can understand it makes him look young, and that's why they changed it. And sometimes it got a little too weird when they didn't give it enough texture, as you can see in the third picture. The emo bangs work best with some texture. It seems to me this hairstyle is either straight up love or straight up hate in the fandom - what's your take?
2. Season Three
As I mentioned earlier, at the end of season two they started to figure out what to do with Sam's hair, and it continued on through season three. I almost put this season at number one, but when I went and looked at the picture for the next one again, I switched. What can I say? My opinions are changeable! The main reason that this one doesn't get the top prize is that sometimes there was a little too much poof. It's a delicate balance, I'm sure you've come to now realize. Later seasons, not enough poof/texture, sometimes in the earlier seasons, too much! Oh the intricacies!
1. Season Four
And here we go, the big kahuna, season four. It wasn't too long, it wasn't too short, it wasn't too poofy, it wasn't too smooth. In short, it was just right. Maybe the excess demon blood tamed his hair?! Yes, that's definitely it. But really, I wish they'd go back to this hair.
I also found this fun graphic someone made over on Tumblr for his hair throughout the seasons I thought you'd all enjoy:
