Andrew Sayer has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

Monday, October 12th, 2015

Melanie During has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). She says:

I am a Vertebrate Paleontologist, and currently still a masters student, I am also an assistant in Big History (the field that covers everything) and a volunteer preparator at the Natural History Museum in Leiden. For the past 5 years I have been almost consistently pink-haired, and my ambitions are not just being a paleontologist, but making scientific documentaries as well.

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

David Brooks has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Science Journalists (LFFFHCfSJ), the newest sibling club of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

This photo of me from the late 1970s demonstrates both unkempt luxuriant flowing hair (all white American males under age 25 in the 1970s had ugly unkempt hair – it was a rule) and excellent dietary habits.

Lucas Brouwers joins the Hair Club for Science Journalists (LFFFHCfSJ)

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Lucas Brouwers has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Science Journalists (LFFFHCfSJ), the newest sibling club of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I am a science writer from the Netherlands, specialized in biology and evolution. Once, I was the proud owner of a beard. Jealous friends lured me into a barber shop under the pretense that we would visit a razor museum. It was over in seconds. For the first time in years, I felt the tingling chill of fresh air flowing around my chin. The beard grew back. Naturally.

Ellen de Bruin becomes charter member of the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Science Journalists (LFFFHCfSJ)

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Ellen de Bruin has joined — indeed, become the first member of — the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Science Journalists (LFFFHCfSJ), the newest sibling club of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). She says:

I am a science journalist at the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad, writing mainly about social sciences, human behavior, and weird things. Hair conditioner has changed my life, though not necessarily visibly so. When my first book Dutch Women Don’t Get Depressed came out in 2007, a columnist of The Independent on Sunday, a British newspaper, stated: ‘De Bruin is scruffy-looking with no hair style […] With respect, how many of us wish to be Dutch?’ Scruffy, that’s very sweet, but of course I do prefer the word ‘luxuriant’.
