For Nicholas Hoult's turn in 'Jack the Giant Slayer,' keeping his Medieval page boy hair in place while performing was "very time consuming." And it shows: no swashbuckling hero of any sort would be able to keep their hair as in place while climbing up a giant stalk to slay some giants! {Photo Credit: Warner Brothers Pictures}

The Black Widow (played by Scarlett Johansson) has a bevy of abilities, including extensive military, hand-to-hand combat, martial arts, and espionage training. But perhaps the thing we'd most like her to train us on is how to get her hair to stay so preternaturally perfect, even while she's kicking ass and taking names. {Photo Credit: Marvel}

There's no way that having long, flowing locks is at all conducive to being a ninja-style, crime-fighting, assassin-for-hire superhero, right? Just no way! It's not practical. {Photo Credit: Marvel}

I don't care that you're a punk, Matthew Lillard, no one in Salt Lake City would get away with that hair. No one! To say nothing of the aerodynamics that high above sea level. {Photo Credit: Sony Pictures Classic}

OK sure, so maybe Sue Storm could use her invisible psionic energy to keep wind from messing up her mane, but she's a superhero! She has bigger problems to deal with — you know, like saving the universe? Plus she can make herself invisible, so why would she even WANT to try when people can't see her most of the time? Unreal! {Photo Credit: Marvel}

Your hair defies gravity! And you have a precocious monkey on your shoulder! This hair is the work of the devil, I tell you. Or do some gingers really have no souls and no one told me? {Photo Credit: G.G. Communications}

Two words: Frizz and humidity. You live in a place called Waterworld! Great texture I can believe (beachy salt water waves!), but this? This I will not believe. Dennis Hopper clearly had the right idea: to shave his head. {Photo Credit: Universal Pictures}

There is no way a princess would allow herself such a terrible hairstyle in real life Plus with all the running? Those things would be disheveled before you could say Obi Wan Kenobi. {Photo Credit: LucasFilm}

Pierce Brosnan in 'Percy Jackson'
Pierce Brosnan in 'Percy Jackson'
Listen, I get that Pierce Brosnan is part centaur, but he's also technically a GOD. So what's up with the bush growing out of his skull? To say nothing of the fact that in the 'Percy Jackson' books his hair is considered 'thinning.' Immortality can't outwit genetics! At least put that s**t in a ponytail (pun completely intended)! {Photo Credit: 20th Century Fox}

Nope, just nope. Picture-perfect in every way (especially follicle-wise), the girls of 'Sucker Punch' have the most ridiculous and unrealistic hair of any of the crime-fighters we've seen before. {Photo Credit: Warner Brothers Pictures}

If you're hanging around in tombs, narrowly escaping death, frequently in close proximity to falling objects and giant rocks — would you really want hair as long as Lara Croft's? Braided or otherwise, that is a serious hazard. {Photo Credit: Paramount Pictures}

That pouf! What a coif! No high-flying vampire would be able to get that much volume in their pompadour and be able to keep it for very long. Don't you know how rainy it is in Washington state?! {Photo Credit: Summit Entertainment}

Kate Beckinsale in 'Total Recall'
Kate Beckinsale in 'Total Recall'
Beckinsale's character Lori in 'Total Recall' is absurd: she has the most perfect wave to her hair — and no frizz? While you're trying to take down a secret agent (on top of being one yourself)? There's no way that's a part of UFB protocol. {Photo Credit: Columbia Pictures}
The Twins in 'The Matrix Reloaded'
The Twins in 'The Matrix Reloaded'
If you had the ability to travel in and out of The Matrix, would you really go with stringy white man dreads as your follicle format of choice? If you're constantly on the run, why would you give your enemies something to easy to grab onto?! You're already albino, Twins, no need to call extra attention to yourselves.

The original source of all my real-life hair dissatisfaction. How does Ariel's hair stay so perfect in the water? Where was Pocahontas' hair brush? Why was Sleeping Beauty not permanently suffering from bedhead?! My ire and my rage, to the lot of you! {Photo Credit: Disney}

Staff Writer Alicia Lutes is a corgi enthusiast from Connecticut living in Los Angeles. She loves Tina Fey, television, ugly things and really money cheese plates. Growing up, her grandfather frequently said, "you’re so god-damned good with words! You should do something with words with your life!" so she made it her quest to plaster her wordy witticisms across the Internet. She looks forward to retiring at the age of 80 and opening a fromagerie with a small army of wrinkly-faced and stumpy-legged dogs.
