We Have Now Reached The Peak Of Steve Harrington's Hair In "Stranger Things 2"

We finally got there.

Posted on

OK, so Steve Harrington's hair in the first season of Stranger Things was tall, distinctively '80s and kind of beautiful, so I went out of the way to write about it.

And you might be thinking: "why write about his hair?" Well, A. look at the way his hair is reflecting light in this image and B. you are already scrolling down an article about Steve's powerful hair. THE DEFENCE RESTS.

Well, there has been developments. At the Emmys I caught a sight of his hair and was quite overwhelmed.

It took me ten seconds to realise that there's two other people in this photo.

And now it is my duty to officially inform you: Steve's hair is the best that it has ever goddamn been in the new series. Holy shit in this scene it looks like the crest of a magnificent wave.

I promised myself that I wouldn't zoom in this time.

But yet here we are, yet again. I can only apologise.

That was sarcasm. I have nothing to apologise for.

I've also noticed that in so many scenes in Stranger Things 2, Steve's hair is inhumanely cut from the scene because it is too tall it barely fits. Like in this scene here:

I now demand that the entire of Stranger Things 2 is reshot with his hair appropriately framed throughout.

Oh for fuck sake this is a nightmare.

Look at how the raw emotion of Steve Harrington in this scene is reflected in his hairstyle that day.

I also did not like this character when he first appeared on Stranger Things 2 because his hair was the polar opposite of everything Steve's hair stands for.

My fashion tip: needs product.

You did not expect this article about Steve Harrington's hair to be so detailed when you clicked on it, did you?

I'm also just going to drop this photo of Joe Keery and David Harbour together, even though this moment doesn't appear in this show.
