Not only is Nicolas Cage known for his rather…weird career choices, but also for these often even weirder hairstyles appearing on his head. Seen the movie or not, it really doesn’t matter. Here are my top 12 Nicolas Cage hairstyles:
12. Valley Girl
Valley Girl is the early Nicolas Cage film and here he plays a punk, so I guess, this is what the eighties imagined Nic Cage as a social rebel. Awesome.
11. Rumble Fish
If Cage had an afro or was a star of Wonder year, his hair would be this.
10. Kiss of the Vampire
This hair is probably Cotton Club hair…with no styling. If Nicolas Cage was going around like this at some point of his career, then he must be human honeybadger
9. Ghost Rider
This hairstyle, no matter how much we really love Nicolas Cage, is just plain bad. It’s as if played some weird game in which he cuts and dyes his own hair blindfolded. Only he can be forgiven.
8. Raising Arizona
Somehow this seemingly uncharacteristic hairstyle representing just chaviness and chaos, has become one of the most recognisable Cage look. Is it because he looks so ridiculous? Or because it fits him so well?
Or is it just because it’s so much hair on one guy?
7. Cotton Club
In Cotton Club, Nicolas Cage brings back the nineteenth century dandy style.
But was it ever supposed to be brought back?
6. Season of the Witch
Season of the Witch’s hairstyle looks almost like in between shooting Con Air and Drive Angry, and it did actually happened just before Drive Angry soon after the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Why this one and not the other? ‘Cause it’s a Medieval Cage
5. Kiss of Death
Remember the times when Nicolas Cage attempted to pull off Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson’s look?
Fortunately, I don’t either…
4. Con Air
It seems like from Loreal commercial, Nicolas Cage went straight back to shot this action movie. Here, still with the commercial smile from a still from the film…
or is it still Loreal?
3. Drive Angry
There is something incredibly brave of Cage in showing what seems to be his real hair. In this one mad film, Nicolas Cage proves that his hair isn’t completely sane itself
Alternative version of Nic Cage’s afro presented already in the crazy ’80s in Rumble Fish, here with a Jewish touch and after some cutting. And did I mention that he’s also ginger?
1. Peggy Sue Got Married
It’s like a cotton candy…caged
