The Fug Girls Rate Long-Haired Male Movie Manes

In Thor: The Dark World (which premieres Friday), Chris Hemsworth reprises his role as the god of thunder, a chiseled pile of testosterone crowned with leonine golden locks the likes of which only dare ruffle in a breeze when it’s heroically convenient. Seeing his mesmerizing mane in the ads, posters and trailers made us think about his onscreen keratin ancestry: How does Thor’s signature coif compare to similarly long Hollywood hair that has come before it? We compiled a slideshow of some of film’s most iconic flowing man-tresses, weighing artistic merit against basic attractiveness, and ranked them on a scale of one to ten (where ten is triumphant and one is terrible). But don’t worry too much about your grade, lads; Thor would agree that it’s really more about the journey.
