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’.

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

I am a Chemist working in Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (Potsdam, Germany). My dream is to synthesize a new conditioner efficient for my hair — a project still not accomplished, as you can see.

LFHCfS member Richard Rees Joins LFHCfS

Monday, September 28th, 2015

Richard Rees, a longtime member of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS), has now gained membership also in the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I have long been a member of the The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists, having joined in 2001-2003 (I am on the first membership page).  Since I have been a member for so long, my profile is now out of date, and I would appreciate it if it could be updated. Here is a more recent picture, and my profile should be updated as follows:

I am now a full professor, not an assistant professor. My institution’s name is now Westfield State University (it got promoted too!) My department is now called the Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences. As you can tell from the new picture, I think I am also eligible to be a member of the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists.
