17 Men's Hairstyles Of The Past That Should Just Stay Dead

Sorry Bieber, but you made our list.

We can regret our hairstyles of the past, or we can learn from them.

The beautiful thing about hindsight is that, if we listen, it can really teach us some things.

It's OK -- sometimes, we make regrettable choices. But let's all agree to make hindsight work for us going forward, and never repeat the following.

We'll happily add man buns to this list when that time comes.

David Beckham's mid-2000 faux hawk had all the white guys running to the barber for the look.

The swish felt around the world.

Nobody can get enough of JT, and so everyone forgave him for his ramen hair of 2000.

These curls should never have danced on Lionel's ceiling.

Many of us expressed our tweenage angst looking like Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco.

The hairspray of the '80s still lingers in the air.

The Great Depression

The original "seagull flocker," F. Scott Fitzgerald, parted it down the middle in 1935, but it was most recently seen on Simon Cowell in 2013.

The Serial Killer Bowl
Javier Bardem was a legitimately scary man in "No Country For Old Men." 75 percent was acting and the rest was his hair.

The Frosted Tip

Why did we frost our tips in the '90s? To look like Sugar Ray. Or Lance Bass. Or Justin Timberlake. Or that jerk in 4th period that Heather liked.

The Frosted Mid-Part

The mid-parted bowl, seen on Nick Carter, was bequeathed to us by 1990s boy bands -- such style pioneers to all kids in the '90s. Let's not give them that power again.

The Frosted Mullet

Country stars should get a separate post of their own, but we couldn't ignore this prime example of a frosted mullet championed by Billy Ray Cyrus in his achy breaky days.
12
The Caesar

Clooney hasn't changed all that much since leaving "ER," but we need to stop asking for the "caesar" when we go to the barber.
13
The Nickel Bleach

The roots in Chad Kroeger's hair were so dark that it comes through in most of Nickleback's hits. Unfortunately, millions of Americans in this era were into it at the time.

The Duritz Dreads

Sideshow Bob wore it better.
15
The Skrillex

Polarizing, polemic-inducing and briefly ubiquitous. The Skrillex gave way to most of the undercut looks we see today.

The Conquerer Comb Over

Napoleon Bonaparte, seen here in this flattering portrait, had more on his mind than where to put his bangs. This look has most recently been made popular on the head of Donald John Trump, Sr.

This photo, taken from the future after an apocalypse ends most of mankind, shows how mutton chops make a comeback thanks to Galen, Central City's leading fashion icon.
