Norman Reedus at The Walking Dead 4th Season Premiere

Posted on October 04, 2013

Wow. We love ourselves some Redneck Darryl, but this might be the greatest disconnect between body and head we’ve ever seen.



Norman Reedus attends the premiere of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” 4th season in Universal City, California.

He looks like a fashion doll with the wrong head attached to it.

Love the suit, but that drugstore-dyed Carol Brady hair is looking awfully sad to us.

    that’s no way to start a sausage friday….

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      LOL – that’s for sure!!

      • Victor Beiramar Diniz

        on the other hand, it can only get better… right?

        • NYCGlamourpuss

          Hmmm… we can hope.

        • Donna Tabor

          As long as you subscribe to the “eat a live frog first thing” kind of philosophy.

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      Agreed. Bad Norman, bad!

    • Constant Reader

      I think I’d rather get this over with early in the day than late in the day. Nightmares and all that…

      • Jessica Freeman

        I’m with you, let’s hope the Uncles make up for it so as to forget about Scary Daryl come quittin’ time.

      • Victor Beiramar Diniz

        well, you have a point, but still, on my side of the pond we’re well into our lunch hour, so a mild indigestion will probably be in the works…

    • decormaven

      Oh, waiter, my sausage is a little…underdone. Could you check the kitchen for hotter fare?

    • YoungSally

      Franken-sausage Friday.

  • PastryGoddess

    A Miss Clairol disaster indeed. It makes Stephen Moyer’s hair look professional compared to this mess

    • formerlyAnon

      I wouldn’t go THAT far . . . not much to choose between ’em, it’s just that Moyer doesn’t have a beard for handy contrast. Do you think he and Moyer have boys’ night and dye together?

      • Lucía Gavello

        I think what makes this worse is the actual haircut, it looks wiggy-fake. I do love him though, can’t help it.

        • formerlyAnon

          Agree. Though it’s more on the level of “find quite attractive.” With this hair, it’s the way you find someone you’ve long thought attractive still attractive, despite some bad hair choice that might cause you to overlook them if this were the first meeting.

  • MilaXX

    lol This is funny. What a disconnect. Nerdy professor on the bottom and hillbilly on the top.

    • Boulderista

      Either that or jail inmate of shady character dressed for court in the suit his lawyer brought him.

      • H2olovngrl

        Maybe if his lawyer is, “starring Andy Griffiths as Matlock”

      • Derek_anny

        Low Key Lyesmith.

  • shirab

    The primary disconnect for me is between hair and face. Is that even his hair (even if it is, it’s clearly not his color) or is that a wig? And why?

    • Barb Ray

      I follow him on twitter, he definitely seems like the kind of guy who would wear a wig just to troll everyone. He’s a really funny guy, and apparently, a real practical joker. (Oh, and apropos of nothing, he likes kitties). No I don’t know him or work for him or anything, I’m just kind of a fangirl.

      • RebeccaKW

        Maybe it’s the wig Sandra Bullock had to wear on that magazine cover?

    • quiltrx

      Maybe it IS a wig…I hope so. Maybe he shaves his head at some point in the season and he’s trying not to ruin the surprise? I’m trying to find a reason for the sadness atop his head…

      • Chandra M. Jordan

        You see sadness, I see sexy. That’s his hair and it’s for the show. Omg.

    • Chandra M. Jordan

      OMG, yes, that’s his hair it’s for filming as Daryl. Norman doesn’t wear a wig, good god.

  • CeeRich

    I don’t care. I love Darryl!!!!!

    • Chandra M. Jordan

      Me neither and I love his hair. I find it interesting they’re going to critique him this way but exploit him to get traffic to their site too.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Redneck Darryl is scaring me. Hold me.

    • TrixieConQueso

      I think he was just bit, so he is in transition. Yikes.

  • Diego!

    OMG… Twilight “#TeamEdward” head with Sherlock Holmes body!!! WTF happened here? I love love love his suit tough, it’s gorgeous and fits him perfectly! Now, that Melrose Place hair must go! ASAP!

  • Brandon Taylor

    Go home, Sausage Friday, you’re drunk.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Even the hair and the face don’t match…so very odd!

  • Jacquelyn

    For the love I have for Darryl, I’ll just ignore this one.

  • It actually looks more like a bad wig.

  • mjude

    I don’t care, I will take him!

  • bellafigura1

    Oh dear. What was that hilarious thing the Fug girls used to talk about, when a hot, scruffy guy tips over into looking officially cray cray? We are very close to that here.

  • MilaXX

    Does this one dimensional hair color work better on camera or something? Otherwise, why?

    • formerlyAnon

      Maybe we can set up a panel. Him, Stephen Moyer, and there’s one more I can’t recall right now. There HAS to be a reason, these guys are attended to by professional hair & makeup people on the regular, someone would have had a come-to-Jesus with them by now if it were just ignorance. (And I don’t buy that Moyer’s hair is because he plays a vampire. It’s ALWAYS too dark & flat & they don’t film year round.)

      • Chandra M. Jordan

        Honey, it’s for the show, they had him grow it this way and they color it this way and really, THAT’S the focus, really? Wow.

  • formerlyAnon

    Okay, he’s the new grocery store shopping partner for Stephen Moyer [in my head]. Wonder if they stand in the hair dye aisle debating shades, or just grab boxes. Which one pushes the cart? Who caves and tosses a bag of chips in?

    In other news: No. I think he’s sexy as all get out, despite the tendency to a rode hard and put up wet look, but the contrast between under-eye bags, not to mention beard color, and hair is too much.

  • WitlessExposition

    Maybe he’s trying out some cosplay as The Doctor?

  • marlie

    He’s never done it for me. The suit looks fab, but from the neck up, he just looks… dirty.

  • AthenaJ

    I’m confused, why does Darryl have a bouffant?

  • jilly_d

    Oh, Norman. I am disappoint.

  • anotherkate

    Speaking of Miss Clairol. Jeez. When will these dudes learn that you really can’t grow out your pale beard if you’re going to dye your hair darker? It looks all corpse-like.

  • Darren Nesbitt

    His hair lol

  • dashransome

    [edited – post intended for Superman/Lone Ranger thread]

  • acevedob

    Is that a wig? It must be for some kind of role. It looks wrong in so many ways.

  • RussellH88

    His hair looks like you could ring it out into a pot and then deep fry a turkey in it.

  • chill85

    With a bit more volume, he’d have The Rachel perfected.

    Oh wait, that wasn’t the intention?

  • guyfromhoboken

    I do believe he is wearing a wig from the Raquel Welch collection.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Oh no. No, no, no. You owe me some shirtless Mangianeillo now.

    • TrixieConQueso

      LOL. Agreed! Might have to be PantsLess Mang-HELLO to balance this out.

  • boweryboy

    Please tell me that hair is for his role. Please tell me he didn’t do that on purpose.

    • MilaXX

      Yes that’s his Darryl hair. Sadly he doesn’t know how to make it work off camera.

  • Goldie

    The hair is for the show. They’ve been making him grow it out because there aren’t a lot of barbers around in the apocalypse and Daryl is just the kind of character who wouldn’t care enough to have Carol or somebody trim his hair regularly. I suspect the color is to make him look even dirtier, as if he hasn’t had a proper shower in a couple of years.

    Other than that, I think he looks fine. Norman always dresses a little nerdy, it’s kind of cute.

  • putacorkinit

    So this is Ron Swanson’s gay younger brother.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I wish that was a plot on Parks and Rec.

  • MaggieMae

    I’m scared.

  • bertkeeter

    Looks as if hes on way to court for a DUI…at last minute his lawyer told him to wear a suit…so he borrowed one from his preppy older brother! His “posing” is hilarious!

  • imakeart

    Love him, but he really takes his hair too seriously.

  • Janet B

    Funny start to Friday

  • KayEmWhy

    I thought you loved us TLo, it’s Friday.

  • He looks like Jack Wagner in a wig.


    It’s Doctor Who’s Redneck cousin! Doctor Who Dat!

  • beckytee

    slap on a load of eyeliner and he might have a look.

    • formerlyAnon

      I think eyeliner is usually a plus, unless we’re starting with a fella that’s too pretty in the first place.

  • quiltrx

    Norman is trolling us! This is no way to treat your horny fangirls, darling.
    I understand the hair getting increasingly longer and scragglier makes sense for the role…but I’m disappointed that it doesn’t even look *clean* here.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    This man needs some makeup to offset that hair…and why is his shirt sticking out of the bottom of his vest and jacket?

  • JasmineAM

    Ugh, I still would. I am awful.

    • formerlyAnon

      Nope. Or if you are, you’ve got company. (And it’d be easy to push it back from his face, which would improve the situation immediatelyl.)

  • Erica_Vuitton

    I vote for a new category called “Boy, That is Not Your Suit”. Because really…. that is NOT his suit.

  • alyce1213

    Also, that suit fits really badly.

  • suzinrva

    If you are going natty gentleman in a three piece and bow tie, please adjust the hair. Can you imagine if he combed it back? Also oddly small tie.

  • Rand Ortega

    No idea what to do w/ this.

  • Crassy

    So what? I still tap that.

  • Therese Bohn

    AAACK!!! If it’s a wig, burn it! If it’s real I’m so sorry!

    Neck down is okay.

  • Terrifying.

  • Chandra M. Jordan

    that’s Daryl hair and it’s hot as hell. So you keep your disconnect and I’ll say you’re wrong.

  • Shawn EH

    The disconnect is between hair and face. I think you have to actually BE IN One Direction to get away with that hair.

  • demidaemon

    This is so strange…I feel like I am having some sort of doll factory nightmare.

  • Trickytrisha

    This thread seems to be divided between peeps who don’t have a clue about Norman Reedus’ character on Walking Dead and those who do.

    As has been said, that is the hair style he wears on the show, actually a somewhat cleaned up version. We’re lucky that it doesn’t have blood and zombie bits hanging from it. This is what you get with Norman, on or off the show. Embrace the awesome. Don’t hate.

  • DeeKaye

    Seriously?! How rude. The ridiculousness of some people’s comments — and this article (and this site, for that matter) — is what is mindblowing. It’s for the ROLE he plays on The Walking Dead…and no, it’s NOT a “wig”. Besides, what difference does it make what anyone says or thinks about Norman Reedus’ hair, but Norman Reedus. Shame on you to whoever wrote this piece up. Go spend your time writing something more constructive, why don’t ya??!

    • Trickytrisha

      Uh, this is a style and fashion blog. Any celeb is fair game, and let’s be real here… Norman does look a tad grungy. We fans don’t mind his laid back glory, but you can’t really expect him to be exempt from opinions about his look and style on a fashion blog.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    He has been dipping into Stephen Moyer’s hair dye supply. It’s giving me a sad.

  • marishka1

    Has anyone reminded Mr. Reedus he is a grown-ass man and needs to ditch the Justin Beiber look? Not even Beiber wears it anymore…

  • fursa_saida


  • tixilyttik

    Maybe it would have been a good move for him to forget the character and slick the hair back for a night to show himself off as handsome and versatile and not the character. He does look good in a suit. Handsome guy. Yes, I would.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    He is always sporting some jacked up hairstyle or another. I think it’s intentional. He enjoys it. That doesn’t mean it isn’t also occasionally laughable. His role as Daryl does not prevent him from combing his hair the rest of the time.

  • LambeeBaby

    He’s been shopping with Miss Clairol.

  • larshine

    This makes me so sad.

  • Kanion Dane

    and all this time i thought his char required a hair piece…who knew all they did was add grease.
