Ksenia Romanenko joins the Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Ksenia Romanenko has joined the LFFFHCfSS – The Luxuriant Flowing, Former, or Facial Hair Club for Social Scientists. She says:

I’m a junior researcher involved in research projects on social anthropology, higher education research, and science communication. I guess my flowing hair often helps me to make a good impression during interviews and other moments of qualitative data collection.

Mikko Kivelä joins the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Mikko Kivelä has joined the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). Ulrike Werner, who nominated him, says:

Mikko is a network scientist and Assistant Professor in complex systems. He has the most luxurious and flowing hair of any scientist I know. Maybe his hair is the visual representation of the networks he researches, especially when not brushed and full of knots (or nodes). Like his hair, he will also eventually untangle the science of complex networks.

Hank Rawlins joins the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS)

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Hank Rawlins has joined the Luxuriant Facial Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS), a sibling club of the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS). He says:

I am a metallurgical engineer and Technical Director of my own company. Most of my research is for the upstream oil and gas industry. My original goal was to grow a flowing mane, but after a sordid incident at a Billy Squier concert in the mullet stage I cropped my locks. The switch to hirsute chin started with no shave November which kept going year round. On a recent trip to Dubai random people asked to take photos of my beard. It seems that only muftis and ISIS fighters grow decent beards and I didn’t appear to fit either category.
