Nicolas Cage’s haircuts: the complete list since 1981

I like Nicolas Cage, a lot.
However many boring movies he might have played in lately, I will always admire his unbelievable performance in Lord of War (2005), one of the best movies I have ever seen. He was also perfect in City of Angels (1998), where his presence made the whole movie. And of course, his performance in Leaving Las Vegas (1995) was outstanding.
 
Nicolas Cage is constantly the victim of all sorts of jokes about his haircuts. That being said, Cage is probably one of the actors that has had the highest number of different haircuts and looks, which has made him the target of some of the funniest memes on the internet.
 
So don’t look anywhere else: Here is the complete list of Nicolas Cage’s hair styles, movie by movie, since 1981

 So it’s up to you to judge now, but I believe Nicolas Cage has probably had more looks simply because he has played in more movies than other comparable superstars, and is also an actor who can play a villain, a drug lord, a family father, a rocker, a president and so on, who are obviously characters that require different looks.
