The 25 Most Baffling Anime Hairstyles That Completely Defy Gravity

List Rules
Vote up the most ridiculous and impractical anime hair.

Sure, we all love anime for its fantastic animation and high-quality story capabilities, but let's be honest. As we watch, we can't help but laugh at all that ridiculous anime hair. A story you're completely invested in can come grinding to a halt because a new character shows up with drills on the sides of her head. You get distracted wondering how in the heck they do that every morning. Check out the list below for the worst anime hairstyles ever drawn, and vote up the one you think is the most ridiculous... or perhaps would want yourself.
