Brittany Fair joins Hair Club for Science Journalists (LFFFHCfSJ)

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Brittany Fair has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Science Journalists™ (LFFFHCfSJ). She says:

You can call me Chewy. When not in Chewbacca form, my hair also enjoys styles such as Kelp Forest Mermaid, Princess Anna, and Legolas. Its utter independence is bewildering. Although, I do enjoy the surprise hairdo that accompanies each morning.

The 2018 Members Gallery for The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists is now available to the public.
Once a year, we gather the listings of all the new inductees into such a gallery – before that, new inductees are only seen individually (in the Improbable Blog) as they join throughout the year.
We invite you to admire these new members, their accomplishments, and also their hair.

This new gallery includes the 2018 inductees into all 6 sibling hair clubs:

    • The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists™ (LFHCfS)
    • The Luxuriant Former Hair Club for Scientists™ (LFHCfS)
    • The Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists™ (LFHCfS)
    • The Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists™ (LFFFHCfSS)
    • The Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Engineers™ (LFFFHCfE)

THE STATE of the HAIR CLUBS
The state of the hair clubs is strong! In 2018 the clubs gained 6 new members from 5 countries, for a grand total of 567 members. We have not finished calculating the aggregate length of the new members’ hair.

NOMINATE for MEMBERSHIP
Do you believe that you or someone you know qualifies to be in one of these luxuriant flowing hair clubs for scientists? Or is there someone who deserves to be an Historical Honorary member?

NOTE of DISTINCTION
Please note that the LFHCfS is distinct from the “Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men”. That said, we enjoyed watching their video. Bravo gents. Let us know if any of you are also a scientist.

Danielle Norberg joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Social Scientists

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Danielle Norberg has joined the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists™ (LFFFHCfSS). She says:

Some cultures see long hair as part of or as an extension to their sensory system; members of such cultures believe or even experience the loss of important abilities when their hair is cut. For others, their long hair contains their strength. My academic discipline refrains from discounting such beliefs and experiences. So I cannot possibly run the risk of losing my academic or other abilities by ever cutting my hair short. Ergo, for the sake of research and my academic future I must keep my hair as long as possible. Everything else would be irresponsible.

Chantal Roggeman joins Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Chantal Roggeman has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists™ (LFHCfS). She says:

I have been told I may never cut my hair, because people would no longer recognize me. Indeed, in international gatherings, I am recognized as “the woman with the long blond hair”. Blond is my trademark, and I enjoy making “dumb blond” jokes in the first person. I have occasionally colored my hair blue, green, orange, purple, pink and fluo-yellow, which I then classify as “artificial intelligence”.
