B.M.O.C.: Best Manes On Campus - 2012-13
Colleges and universities, we're told, are all about getting an education. But let's be honest - they're also places for admiring women whose hairstyles are blossoming into their prime, and are well-prepared for a long day of studies and activities.
We realize head-turning Super-Hair can be found on campus, so this area honors those styles -- with 2012-13 marking our tenth season of BMOC's.
INDIANA-PURDUE-FORT WAYNE: MIRANDA KRAMER.
Try to mow down this head of long hair, and she might mow you down instead - with more than 280 strikeouts and 23 wins in her sophomore year as an all-league softball pitcher. And if that's not enough, she majors in criminal justice. She won the vacant Fort Wayne City League title with ease. [Posted 5/22/13]
COLUMBUS STATE (GA): MOLLY EVETTS.
A sophomore member of the dance team who works off-campus at Hooters brought down a two-time BMOC and All-American athlete. This early childhood education major won a six-way contest which brought praise from our voters. [Final 5/22/13]
(Second through sixth place: Katelyn Pawlowski, Mollie Russell tied; Jaci Caruthers, Casey Googe, Bree Nowlin tied.)
WYOMING: LEXIE MADDEN.
Graduating with a degree in kinesiology and health promotions, this senior's long hair was healthy enough to impress the judges at Miss America 2012. Miss Wyoming finished as third runner-up. [Posted 5/9/13]
COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON: KATIE JOHNSON.
A first-year cheerleader had long hair prepared sturdily enough to win a fierce three-way contest. She edged Victoria Gonzalez 16-14 in the finals, winning praise for "lots of style, body and just enough waves" -- while others appealed in vain for a tie.[Final 4/23/13]
(Third place: Lizzie Theesfeld.)
BOISE STATE: KELSEY CAVALLO.
Our thanks to a fellow student for helping us identify one of the fittingly-named "Mane Line Dancers," who was featured in a Yahoo fashion slideshow. She's a sophomore, a transfer from Oregon, an All-State high school dancer - and may have years of experience in maximizing Hair Fan interest during turns. [Posted 4/7/13]
LOYOLA-NEW ORLEANS: ELYSIA PENDEZEC.
A Hair Fan found two members of the track team, and one voter called them "evenly matched." But this sophomore public relations major who takes creative care with the right side of her styles was superior in the long run (she can race 5,000 meters). She defeated Elizabeth Geinger 9-2. [Final 3/25/13]
OKLAHOMA STATE: COURTLYN IVY.
A retweet from her idol Erin Andrews brought this freshman from Texas to our attention. Her strong-holding blonde hair has kept us watching ever since. She's a cheerleader with dreams of becoming a sportscaster. [Posted 3/9/13]
FORDHAM: EMILY OSMAN.
This sophomore business administration major has been an intern with Morgan Stanley, so she knows how to run numbers -- and she also runs long distances on the track and cross-country teams. Long, running blonde hair which one voter praised for "amazing thickness" won a six-way race, topping Maddie Bokan in the finals 15-7. [Final 2/23/13]
(Third through sixth place: Maria Lorena Canicatti, Brianna O'Neil tied; Kellen Fitzgerald, Courtnay Newman tied.)
RUTGERS: JONELLE FILIGNO.
Another Hair Fan find is this "redshirt junior" who probably is better known in Canada than the U.S. She's a resident of suburban Toronto who plays on the national soccer team, and won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics. When she's not picking up conference honors in the Big East, she's in the Arts and Sciences school - and her long hair may combine the two. [Posted 1/20/13]
OHIO: KARIN BULL.
A Hair Fan led us to one volleyball player that Minnesota let slip away. She moved from the Twin Cities to join a winning rotation in her first year -- and she seems to like her blonde hair as long as her six-foot-two frame. [Posted 1/9/13]
FLORIDA STATE: ALLYSSA VUELMA.
She's a graphics design major with an unusual resume outside the classroom. She was a contestant in a college edition of America's Next Top Model. But her thick and sturdy waves caught our attention when she appeared on a Tonight Show "Battle of the Jaywalk All-Stars." [Posted 12/26/12]
JACKSON STATE: JENNA SIDDIQUI.
She moved to Mississippi from southern California, and helped her team win the conference volleyball title - even gaining "Newcomer of the Week" twice in her freshman year. The finance and broadcasting major has attractive long hair, yet she posted an intriguing quote on Twitter about hair "not growing fast enough." [Posted 12/8/12]
HOUSTON: BRITTANY BOOKER.
The 2012 Miss USA pageant abounded with great hair, including this senior who held the "Miss Texas" title and reached the top ten. There's a sharp mind under that strong blonde mane, as she plans to seek a master's degree in psychology. [Posted 11/24/12]
LOYOLA MARYMOUNT: KATY BEKKEN.
A Hair Fan found this senior political science major on the cheerleading squad. But you might have trouble tracking down this head of long hair away from games, because she volunteers for a lot of campus projects. [Posted 11/10/12]
UMKC: ABBY SHIMOTA.
Her brilliance of blonde color may come from her Minnesota roots. Her brilliance of style and hold may come from her biology/pre-medical brain. Her brilliance in hair health may come from playing defense on the soccer team. Put all together, this junior won the City League title of Kansas City at age 20. [Posted 10/29/12]
TULANE: KATHERINE CRABTREE.
You'll have to run 1,500 meters in under five minutes to catch this senior and her thick long hair. We think the Hair Fan who suggested her was stunned by the red-brown color - but she's won medals for high grades, and she seems smart when it comes to preparation. [Posted 10/15/12]
CORNERSTONE (MI): LIBBY WEBBER.
A sophomore volleyball player who leads her team in blocks and kills, and finished a close second in our Grand Rapids City League race. One voter compared her to a character on the old children's program The Bugaloos -- and as perfect as Joy's straight bangs stayed on that series, we think that's a compliment. [Posted 9/17/12]
CENTENARY (LA): AMANDA ATWELL.
This freshman dreams of sportscasting someday, and she's gaining on-field experience as a midfielder on the soccer team. But the Hair Fan who suggested her might consider her long wavy hair a bit more important in getting a job. [Posted 9/3/12]
VANDERBILT: AMANDA MITCHELL.
Her home city is El Paso, but this junior received a cheerleading scholarship to attend a prestigious Southern school. She's taking advantage of that to major in the intriguing mix of flute and biology -- and on top of that, her long rolls of curl won our Nashville City League tournament during the summer. [Posted 8/20/12]
