Your Bad-Hair Day Just Got Better: 10 Hilariously Awkward Hairdos That, Thankfully, Aren’t Yours

By Meredith Carroll |

Unless you’re Jennifer Aniston and have a staff of hair stylists at your beck and call to make sure every tousled lock is just so, you have a bad hair more often than you’d like. You just do.

You can spend hundreds on cuts, coloring, blowouts, straightening techniques and the like, but every now and again, there’s nothing that can get your part to cooperate.

Take heart, however, in knowing that some people’s hair will always be worse than yours. And that they made their hair look like that on purpose. The sick geniuses over at Awkward Family Photos are holding an Awkward Hair Contest in celebration of the film The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and the submissions don’t disappoint.

Check out the 10 finalists for the most awkward hair and then hop on over here to vote on who deserves to win (lose?):
