When it comes to celebrity award shows, the more insane the selection of attire the better, if you ask me. There's nothing quite like scrutinizing the higher echelons of society, coffee in hand and eyebrows raised, screeching WTF is she WEARING?!

However, often we're so busy berating celebs for their poor choice in fashion that their heinous hairstyles slip by the wayside. So, I've rounded up a hearty selection of famous faces and their daring hairdo's which should not only give you a good laugh, but also help you feel better about yourself and prompt the only important question here: Why?

1. Natalie Dormer, Screen Actors Guild, 2014

Dodgy side-cut, strip of what looks like wire fencing wrapped around her torso... hedge trimmer accident perhaps?

2. Gwen Stefani, VMAs, 1998

All hearts floating in Gwen Stefani's general direction for this wonderfully deranged mystic cookie monster look.

3. Helen Mirren, Baftas, 2013

Helen Mirren's pink pixie crop was inspired by a 'fun' hairstyle she spotted on America's Next Top Model. Does anyone not love this woman?

4. Angelia, 2000, Oscars

Anyone bring garlic? Blessed bullet?

5. Nicole Richie, Met Ball, 2013

I'm not sure Nicole Richie's bold look was worth the amount of time it inevitably took to scrub out whatever that white stuff is.

6. Christina Aguilera

Xtina's clearly packing more than a genie in her bathroom bottles if this array of ridiculous hairstyles are anything to go by.

7. Scarlett Johansson, 'Confidence' LA Premiere, 2003

If Scarlett Johansson can look like this, then there is hope for the rest of us.

8. Drew Barrymore, 'Whip It' Premiere, 2009

See above for the reason why matching your hair to your frock has never been a thing.

9. Celine Dion, The Oscars, 1999

First, and only thought:

10. Cher, The Oscars 1987 and 'The Voice' Finale, 2013

A quarter of a century after that Oscars moment, she's still rocking a strong hair game. Cher <3

11. Nicki Minaj, Carolina Herrera Fashion Show and The Grammy's, 2011

Fierce AF.

12. Miley Cyrus, VMAs, 2015

A chandelier with dreadlocks. Makes sense?

13. Victoria Beckham, MTV Movie Awards and Glamour Awards, 2007

Well, we all make mistakes.

Bonus Round!

14. Elena Lenina, Cannes

Russian Elena Lenina is basically famous because her hair goes to Cannes, and sometimes her body goes with her.
