'Thor: The Dark World' Star Chris Hemsworth's 17 Best Hair Moments

Let's call a spade a spade: It's a little hard to get excited about Thor: The Dark World. It's just, I don't know, these movies don't really do it for me (shields! swords! loud noises!) and I don't feel like spending the $31 (with popcorn, soda, and Raisinets) to see some superhero stuff with tissue stuffed in my ears. I mean, I can't be the only one who thinks these flicks are deafening, right? That said, I do like Thor stars Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, so the movie has that going for it, which is nice.

The film opens Friday and is the sequel to the first movie Thor, which dropped in 2011. The first was directed by Joss Whedon, the second was helmed by Alan Taylor.

As far as I can tell, the best thing about Thor is Hemsworth's hair. Long and blonde and covered in dirt and grime and blood? I'll take it. It's the like anti-Pantene commercial in the best way. What are these Hemsworth brothers eating Down Under, anyway? I imagine they feed entirely on the nails of infants and fish eyes because there's no explanation as to how their locks are so luscious. Let's take a look at their hair, shall we?

The Mohawk

In 2005, Chris went full-out mohawk and hey, it kind of worked.

The Country Star

In 2006, Chris rocked Nashville's finest 'do. 

The Moody Part

Also in 2006, Chris brought is best dra to the ma.

The Highlights

Evidently, 2006 was an experimental year for the actor. Check out those 'lights!

The Fauxhawk

In 2007, the fauxhawk was in fauxfrontal.

The 'Dumb and Dumber'

In 2008, Chris was more like Chris... tmas, as in Lloyd. 

The Real Deal

It took him a few years but in 2009, Chris found is hair stride.

The Grow Out

Still keeping it fresh in 2010, Chris let it grow out a bit like a boss. 

The Butt Part

Damnit, Hemsworth! I thought we were on a roll. In 2010, Chris let it grow out a little too much and whoops: there's now an ass crack on his head.

The Liam

In 2011, Chris took a page out of brother Liam's book and rocked the side swoopyness.

The Dark and Stormy

It's darker, it's stormier, it's Hemsworthier.

The Angel Greaser

Is that product in his hair, or were angels weeping tears of joy on his head? Let's face it: you'd weep happy tears, too, if you created that.

The Rachel

Last year, Chris went as Jennifer Aniston for an entire 12 months.

The KStew Repeller

Kristen Stewart has a fear of small ponytails aaaaaand... commitment. 

The Soccer Player

This tucked in pony makes us want to grab our shins in "excruciating pain" and roll around on some grass until a ref yells at us to get up.

The Brad

Chris went for a classic Brad Pitt 'do in 2012. Troy met Thor, and it worked.

The Game Show Host

In 2013, Chris lost the blonde dye and found his inner newscaster. Thanks for the ride, Hemsworth: your hair is ever-changing and ever-appreciated.
