We've officially now had 13 years and more than 13 seasons in which to fall in love with two monster-fighting brothers known as the Winchesters, but that's not what we're here to talk about today. Instead, we'd like to pay tribute to another Supernatural-related love affair: the one between the world and Jared Padalecki's hair.
Over the past 13 seasons, it has almost become a character on its own, battling its own demons like middle parts and ear-curling and face-eating sideburns. But throughout it all, it has remained luxurious, brown, and attached to the top of Jared Padalecki's head. For that, we salute it by lovingly documenting its evolution over the past decade. Enjoy!
Back where it all began: a center part, a Doose's Market apron, and a boyish smile that melted our hearts...at least for the first season or two.
LOOK AT THE BABIES! Season 1 Sam was still rocking that part, just ever so slightly to the left and with a little more flair than before. (Meanwhile, are you guys seeing Jensen Ackles' pillow lips right now?)
By the end of season one, the part had all but disappeared into a raggedy bowl cut that makes us want to ruffle that whole head of beautiful hair.
The part is back, but less 90's boy band and more broody indie band monster fighter. We dig.
Now that's a rugged, carefree mane we'd be willing to run our hands through after a long day of ghostbusting and demon-slaying, that's for sure. (Oh hey, Adrienne Palicki!)
It's so swoopy! In a cute way.
Mmm. Yes. Season 4 is apparently where the boy became a man, just a season after dying and being resurrected due to his brother's pact with the devil. We get it. And he can get it.
This is some really great hair for accentuating both sideburns and a really great jaw line. Too bad neither of those things are anywhere to be found...
This is getting a bit—dare we say it—helmety for our tastes. Not the most flattering look.
Now THAT is a mutton chop! Or is it? It looks like a tiny boomerang made of hair. It's weird but lovable.
We kind of have this haircut right now, and we do not nearly have the same face shape as good ole' JarPad. One of us has the wrong haircut. Or perhaps both of us?
Yes please and thank you! At times, the long hair doesn't quite work for Sam, but this is one instance where it totally does, and we just wish there were a wind machine nearby to get the full effect.
Ah! It's so round! Hurry up and click to the next slide!
Yes, here we are. Slightly flippy hair that's not too short, not too long, and not too round, plus a nicely bloodied face. This is what dreams and Sams are made of and season 11 was killing it, hair-wise.
It looks a little dirty but we don't mind. It's still Sam Winchester hair perfection.
That 'do is looking a little long in season 13, but we will say it does appear to be perfectly conditioned.
These famous locks are looking a little mussed, a little stressed out. Could it be because their brother is possessed by an evil arcangel and is currently missing? Probably.
As Supernatural prepares to say goodbye, we prepare to say goodbye to Jared Padalecki's Supernatural hair. Will he have the same sort of hair journey on his new series Walker? We couldn't possibly know yet, but we're truly excited to find out.
And now it's Jensen Ackles' turn!
Just kidding! Dean's been rocking the short-on-the-sides, fluffy-on-top look for 15 years now, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
