Yes, it's finally time for our most anticipated annual tradition!  When I look back at all that amazing footage during the season gone past and dig deep to what really matters, how did Sam's hair fare?  The results, as they usually do, can evoke all sorts of responses.  

This year, I'm offering two ways to view the Enigma.  It's a long slideshow, so you can go through the slides in our standard slideshow viewer below, or go to the link below and see them in our Photo Gallery!  The photo gallery too has a slideshow viewer, but you get the pictures is much bigger form on that one!  It's really useful for those of you with wider screen laptops and browsers.  

The Season Eight Enigma of Sam Winchester's Hair Photo Gallery

As for the rest of you, the slide show is below.  Enjoy, and just a warning if you're watching this at work.  Make sure it'll be alright to bust out in laughter or let out a few "awwws" without attracting attention.  There are lots of pictures!

These are great, alice!
Personal favourites:
The "just killed a hellhound and didn't get any blood in my hair" and the "hanging chad" ! :D
Thanks for the sharing lighter side of Supernatural. Long my Sam's hair grow! ;-)

Ok 33 and 43 are the winners for sure. Very good points! Especially how DID none of it get in his hair?
Thank you for lots and lots (and lots) of pictures of Sam('s hair) it has improved my workday a lot :D

Love this! Can't get enough of Sam's hair. I am particularly fond of 'flashback hair' all of that lovely yellow light makes his hair glow reddish; lovely.

I noticed that one small strand and the front of Sam's hair that break's free of the pack several seasons ago. I think we should call it 'errant lock.' :D

Great, fun article!!! You can never have too many pictures of Sam, never.

Alice, you're a goddess. What a glorious thing to wake up to. There are too many great pictures here to pick a favorite, but can I just say that this was one of the best years for Sam's hair ever?! The man just gets better looking every year. It's almost.....Supe rnatural :P

Oh, and I say we call his stray hair "The Lock of Rebellion."

Thanks for doing this! Love his hair this season. My favorite has to be bedhead though.

Thank you so much for this, Alice. All these pics of Sam's hair are a real treat. Sam's hair was fabulous in S8, just beautiful. *Happy sigh* The Flashback Hair was indeed particularly dreamy and BedheadHair!Sam was something special to behold. Now I think I need to go watch again. :lol:

"Lock of Rebellion" love that! :P

Yeah, I'm sitting here laughing out loud at this slideshow. I think the killing a hell hound hair had to be my favorite slide. And his sickly bed-head hair is always hilarious, particularly with his brother hair-bullying him about it. LOL!

S8 has the best Sam hair EVER, esp since the giant Sideburns of doom from S7 are done. Ha!

Thanks for this hilarious ride through S8 Sam hair.

Thank you so much.

I love love Sam's hair in season 8 ! The best so far in my opinion ! And the way his hair shined in flashbacks and when he was with Amelia ! I can't get enough of those pics * Sigh *
Wish he could have his s7 sideburns in S8 too ! I loved them !
Thanks for this lovely article :)

In the title shot (one of the flashback pics) Sam's hair has this lovely little flip at the ends which I just love. Only Sam is manly enough to get away with that 1950's girl band flip in his hair and still look like a stud. Droolworthy.

#75 Bedhead hair led to one of my favorite quotes from season 8 (although it didn't make your poll). Dean: "Man, I am telling you give me five minutes with some clippers." :D
