"While considering an academic career, I quickly realized that an ability to afford hair cuts was a necessary sacrifice, and have been practicing said asceticism ever since. As of 2018 my hair reaches my knees, and I can but pray my wisdom grows with the same dogged persistence. My locks hide tidily in a bun most days, allowing me to reveal my hair in a highly effective display whenever I wish to astonish students and emphasize the effects of Goffmanian front and performance in everyday life."

"After finishing my PhD and moving to Denmark for post-doctoral work I began to realise the amount of positive feedback on my glorious locks (no minor revisions needed here!)"

<more about this member>

"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."

"They'll never let you have long hair in the real world. You'll never get a real job looking like a hippy.' I was told in small-town Texas. Well I showed them! I showed them all!!! - especially the blind patients whose visual prostheses I help to develop. (The young me is shown in this photo flanked by inspirations and Nobel Laureates David Hubel and Torsten Wiesel.) Now I now apply my talents to bionic vision and inspiring future generations of luxuriantly coiffed young scientists."

"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'."

"I began growing my hair in 2013, during graduate school in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Illinois. I was dissatisfied with my clean-cut look, and was seeking a style that would express my individuality, rebelliousness, and love of rock music. As my dissertation grew, so did my hair. It developed into a flowing mane of chestnut curls. In a paramount example of my love of hair and science, I shared a video in Washington, D.C. prior to the March for Science. I defended the importance of science as my locks freely cascaded past my clavicle onto my AAAS Leonardo da Vinci t-shirt. Feast your eyes on the screenshot I have provided.
