Lady Ada Lovelace joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Augusta Ada King (née Byron), Countess of Lovelace has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists, as an historical honorary member.

“Lady Lovelace” (1815-1852) wrote the code for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, and so is often called the first computer programmer.  The computer language “Ada” is named after her, and she had a lot of hair!

She has inspired a range of computer programmers, steampunk illustrators, and at least one YouTube hair tutorial.  You can purchase an image of her hair, via Reddit.
