Supernatural is entering its 12th season on Thursday, Oct. 13. It's been 12 years of demon-hunting, angels, possessions and Jared Padalecki's hair.
Yes, like Mariska Hargitay's Law & Order: SVU hair, Padalecki's ever-changing (even just slightly) flowing locks have been a constant on The CW's long-running series. There's been bangs, a tiny bit of feathering and some serious sideburns all over the course of the 12 seasons.
Where do we find Sam Winchester's luxurious mane in season 12? As you can see above, the ‘burns are pretty tame and his hair is parted roughly down the middle.
In the premiere episode, "Keep Calm and Carry On," Dean (Jensen Ackles) comes face-to-face with Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith), his mom. And then there's Sam, who is struggling to survive after Toni shot him. Coming up, Rick Springfield guest stars as Lucifer. Springfield comes to town in "Mamma Mia," the second episode of the season, which also features Dean, Mary and Castiel (Misha Collins) setting out to rescue Sam.

Supernatural season 12 premieres Thursday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. on The CW.
