He’s made a lot of money off these nut-a$$ hairstyles, but damn…
Samuel L. Jackson is the highest grossing actor of all time, and despite that honorable distinction he still does not take his craft for granted and continues to push the boundaries of his character’s unique hairstyles with each film he does.
With the exception of a few flicks, Jackson rarely repeats his choices of ‘do
Flip the page to peep the hot mess that is Samuel L. Jackson’s hair…
In “Black Snake Moan” Sam Jack rocked his old man steez, he actually looks kinda like Lebron…5 years from now!
For “Deep Blue Sea” the boisterous actor got on his “educated uncle” steez and pulled out a wig that looked ready-made for the Cosby Show.
“Eves Bayou” was the type of flick where Sam could really bring it with the hair, and he did not hesitate to go Frankie Lymon on they a$$!
Not many people saw “Formula 51” but that didn’t stop Sam from giving his best effort as far as his cornrows were concerned.
In both “Iron Man” and “The Avengers” Jackson will be playing Nick Fury (who is actually a white man WITH hair in the comics) and instead of doing something crazy he broke out a good straight razor and went cue-ball clean.
Not only did he go for the pony tail in “Jackie Brown” but the thin braided beard was a nice touch.
In “Jumper” Mr. Jackson went Colin Powell on ’em!
Who could forget Jackson’s endearing role as Gator, the crackhead son that Ruby Dee just couldn’t say “no” to in “Jungle Fever”. If his acting didn’t convince us he was a certified crackhead, then his hair definitely did. Interesting enough, Jackson admitted in an interview once that he was still smoking crack in real life prior to getting this role.

In most of his roles Sam Jackson is the MAN, but in “The Man” his hair was more Whoopi Goldberg than anything.
Ladies and gentlemen we present to you Samuel L. Jackson…the ginger?
In “Unbreakable” Jackson played a man who’s bones were brittle and easily broken, so he found the driest, damaged hair he could to match his character’s fatal flaw.
