Back in December, the first trailer for "Rock of Ages" hit the Web. It was (unsurprisingly) chock-full of '80s power ballads, romantic subplots and, according to Catherine Zeta-Jones' character, "sex, hateful music and sex." Then there was the hair: the epic, wig-heavy hair, worn by some of Hollywood's most famous faces (Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin).

It shouldn't come as a shock that a film taking place in 1987 features characters who are hair-sprayed into oblivion. Thankfully, they (sort of) have an excuse: It was the '80s!

Unfortunately, there are plenty of other 'dos in movie history that can't use the cheesy decade defense. From Javier Bardem in "No Country For Old Men" to Jim Carrey in "Ace Ventura," these characters taught viewers what not to do when selecting a hairstyle.

So, in honor of every wig in "Rock of Ages," let's celebrate some of the worst hairdos ever caught on film.
