It's that special time of year again! Hellatus starts taking it's toll so I get cheeky, bored, and carry my Supernatural obsession to disturbing new levels. I take precious time to pour over all the visual evidence that Sam Winchester's hair has evolved into its own being. Heck, it's an actual supporting player by now! It's become as vital to "Supernatural" as the Impala and tacky motel rooms.
Just like all other seasons, the results from my study are quite fascinating. For those not familiar, this is my third "Enigma" installment. The first one went on to be one of the most legendary articles ever on this site. The second one, season five, didn't do too shabby either. Now I take on season six. I was not prepared for the hefty task this season had to offer, that's for sure.
Season Six Hair
Season six without a freaking doubt was the most perplexing, deeply layered, complex, and absolute best hair year ever. That's because it became the tale of two hairs (except the season finale, which is so complicated its gets its own category). There is soulless Sam hair, which for the most part is perfect. It's always neat, well kept, and on more than one occasion heart stoppingly gorgeous. Sure, a lot of what's on the top of his head could be the danger vibe of the very cold face underneath, but the whole situation also leaves many philosophical musings as to how messy hair is tied to a soul. It's my guess all those hours not sleeping finally afforded some time for proper care. Or is it more than that? Hmm...the possibilities.
Of course, it's not like Sam got his soul back and his hair instantly drifted into disaster territory. The noticeable attention given to the hair did disappear. There weren't disasters, but there weren't as many "wow" moments either. Just flat. Oh, except "Frontierland." Trust me when I say, there's a special spot in the Sam Winchester hair hall of fame for what a well placed hat does to the man.
There wasn't a major disaster anywhere and oh so much goodness, but strange things did happen. The hair still managed to take over during some pivotal scenes. Or dry ones. Or heck, even scenes that didn't amount to a hill of beans at all. The hair still often did what it wanted. Doesn't that always seem to be the case?
Ah, but enough of my musings. We need visual evidence! Lord knows there was plenty.
Then there's that shot of Sam with the bloody teeth. Is it wrong that it turns me on?!!!
I predict that next season hairdressers will have queues out the door as big men and little men, tall men and short men, fat men and skinny men, hot men and um, men with good personalities, hairy men and bald men will all asking for 'The Sam', the hair for all seasons (and dimensions).
No sleep ==> fantastic hair.
I think I just gained a new appreciation for Season 6 Sam Hair!
-- Alice when you're good, you're very, very good, and when you're bored, you're better. LOL
I am obviously not the only one who has been looking forward to this article, we are a very strange collection of people are we not?
Thank you for making such a huge sacrifice pouring over all these pictures for so long, you are a true martyr to the cause Ju
Due to my ancient and useless moniter I couldn't really make out the hair in the half-naked workout picture so could you do us a few more ... and bigger?
Incidentally, I adopted a kitten a couple of weeks ago, named him Samuel John Winchester. Ahem. He suddenly got massive feet and paws (which means he'll be huge) and is developing floofiness. I named him right...
I just love that no matter how much it is flat itoned, Jared's hair will pop out. It seemes especially prone to making those little flicky things on the left side of his head in season six. It's very amusing.
Sam's hair looked best this season when he was being all sexy or bad***. Sometimes, it actually looked girly!!!
Now, THIS is how you spent the hellatus. *sigh* I wish you'd do this every day. I'd watch and drool and comment on this fabulousness and drool an comment and drool...
My god. Is it hot in here? Well, actually it is, but now its doubly so.
Oo, oo, faves! The pic where Cas touches SoullesSams forehead and all the half naked ones and the one with the bloody teeth and the one with the...ok, every single one is hothothot to me :)
But gotta say, soullessSam was a delicious, evil, hotter than hell of a man *mops the floor of massive droolage*
THANK YOU!! We want more!! Kneel before The Samhair!
Thank you Alice! So much goodness to drool on in your article...
I have to agree, Soulless Sam's hair stole the show.
Thanx for all three posts on Sam's hair, loved it! I just started watching SPN in February this year and found this site just a couple of days ago. Love it! I'm actually drooling over all these pic's of "The Hair" mmm, someone pls swipe the floor!
One coif I like is in SS, just after Sam has downed all the "goo juice" and says: "Let's do this!" Is it only me that likes the hair then?
