You know, now that I am 7/8 of the way to a solid half of a degree in computer science, I am now a verified expert on a number of subjects you might not have been aware of, like interesting ways to WEAR YOUR HAIR. Yes of course, the first step to being a qualified computer scientist is to always have interestingly coiffed locks. (Its also a good way into fooling people you've gone home from the cluster in the last three days for a good wash, which of course, as a computer scientist, you haven't.)
exhibit A | Free People magic doughnut (cough, chignon)
you knew convincing your mom to buy that hairigami thing off that infomercial in the 5th grade was an inspired idea. Now show the rest of the world!
exhibits B + C | Proenza Schouler "I give exactly zero fucks" pony/braid
My current favorite and permanent state of being. Heres to hoping my hair dreads this way. Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 (because honestly, when is proenza hair ever not freaking chiller than Mr. Freeze)
exhibits I + J (what, computer scientists never use D as a variable)| Phillip Lim Spring 2011 twisty badass bun
I think the exact quote from the style.com article was "Ah, a kind of messy chignon that every model should be able to do herself." Further proof that I am indeed a terrible model, since the twisty bits are typically beyond me on my most lucid morning, but this hair is perfect. Now to find a giant talon to wear from my other ear.
exhibit K | be a baddass and roll out of bed looking like Charlotte Free
Pfffft. I wish.
exhibit X | Free People Spray Painted Coronet
Not just for Dayglow and all those crazy science raves!
exhibit Y | Lara Stone cutesy side braids
Evebrowless glower + cat ears required.
exhibit Z | ......
I'm not even going to begin comprehending this right now, but I like it.
