3. Dwight Schrute's hair in The Office

NBC

"It really was a goofy haircut but it fit the role of Dwight so much. And props to Rainn Wilson for voluntarily getting the haircut and sticking with it for so many years."

4. Buffy's hair in Season 3, Episode 10 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The WB / UPN

6. Pete Campbell's hair in Mad Men

AMC

"He had quite a handsome '50s hair look at the beginning of the show, but as it went on, his hairline became non-existent. It made him look so sleazy and worn down (which he was, so it makes sense). Poor Vincent Kartheiser for having to get his hairline shaved to achieve the look!"

7. Elena and Katherine's hair in the series finale of The Vampire Diaries

The CW

"Yes, a wig made sense since Nina Dobrev had cut her hair, but that's the best one they could find?"

8. Alison's bangs on Pretty Little Liars

Freeform

9. Dexter's wig in flashbacks in Dexter

Showtime

"I hated every time they did a flashback and put Michael C. Hall in that GOD AWFUL Justin Bieber wig. I get they were trying to make him look younger, but it did not work at all."

10. Jane's bangs in Season 2 of Big Little Lies

20. Bonnie's hair in Season 1 of How to Get Away with Murder

21. Hannah's hair in 13 Reasons Why

Netflix

"Her hair was yikes. The side part didn’t help."

22. Betty's hair in the first two seasons of Ugly Betty

ABC

"It was definitely intentional, but it was hard to look at. It was all dull, frizzy, and limp. I feel like a young professional like her would at least have the brains to put it up or wash it."

23. Aria's pink highlights in Pretty Little Liars

Freeform

"Ironically, terrible clip-ins are probably the most relatable teenage girl style choice in a show where a bunch of 15-year-olds were usually dressed head-to-toe in designer with perfect hair, but the pink extensions always make me cringe."

24. Billy's hair in Stranger Things

Netflix

"Everyone was swooning over this guy, but the only thing I could think is, 'C'mon man, visit a hairdresser just once.'"

25. Allison's massive hair in Season 2 of Teen Wolf
