B.M.O.C.: Best Manes On Campus - 2004-05

Colleges and universities, we're told, are all about getting an education. But let's be real here - 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 contend some of the greatest heads of hair can be found on campuses, so we've set up a section of our web site to locate and display them. We're looking for your nominations of the "best manes," perhaps at the college in your town or the one you attend. (And trust us from experience: the best styles do not always belong to the cheerleaders.)


The pitcher gets the win, in a three-way clash of softball players with long locks. The junior who's an academic all-conference choice in merchandising and consumer studies won 62 percent in our poll, outsmarting Carly White's 24 percent and Ashley Cameron with 15 percent (21-8-5).

A freshman gymnast from Missouri made "Cwick" work of this, as her flat-iron straight style vaulted past Olympic champion swimmer Kirsty Coventry 13-1 in only five days. [Updated 5/18/5]


A Hair Fan found two contenders on the same swimming team, so we put them before you for a campus dual. This senior "powerhouse" (as another college team calls her) topped Taylor Emerson 24-8 in a nine-day "pool poll," winning praise for her bangs. [Updated 4/27/5]


This sophomore caught our attention during the NCAA basketball tournament as a modern-day rarity - a cheerleader who didn't wear any pins in her long hair. (It was straight when we saw it.) Well-cut bangs combined with straight protective shoulders seems to make extra metal unnecessary. [Posted 3/26/5]


She's turned professional, after winning an Olympic gold medal on the U.S. sprint relay team. But this senior is committed to gaining a degree in criminal justice -- and she's analyzed in detail how to run with mid-length hair unpinned, without it flying into her face. Read more about it in Super-Hair Q&A. [Posted 3/10/5]


This junior from Illinois is a volleyball player - and she's shown her long hair "digs" in tightly around the ears and refuses to be "killed." Enough Hair Fans were impressed that she finished third in the Des Moines City League, ahead of some famous Iowa news anchors. [Posted 2/10/4]


We let Hair Fans choose between two cheerleaders who entered the Raleigh-Durham City League. After an evenly-matched first week, this junior jumped over Christie Regula 21-11 (66%). Her main interest is public health (especially in Latin America), and her thick loose hair appears healthy enough to interest many. [Updated 2/4/5]


A Hair Fan recommended this sophomore soccer player, who shows a double-layered approach to a sidepart. This must take flat-ironing - along with some mysterious extra to keep hair out of her right eye. As a biology major, she would know how to do it. [Posted 12/21/4]


This freshman hasn't been on campus long, but her appearance on the softball team was enough for someone to suggest her. No, we don't know how long this hair is. But we'd love to know how that strip stays in place near the right eye - and based on the praise from a volleyball coach back home in Washington, we'd like to see her jump with it.

UPDATE: She's also the winner of our Cutting-Edge Hair News "Great Eight" poll for the best style of this term! [Posted 11/26/4]


The sky could be the limit for this freshman fine arts major, who we understand had head-turning hair even when it was at shoulder-length during high school. At last report, it was a loose and long delight to watch. [Posted 10/14/4]


Back for her junior year, the morning TV reporter didn't last as long as cheerleader Nicole Cervantes in the Lexington City League. But in a head-to-head title test, Gimmel prevailed with an easy 85-percent majority (29-5). Yet someone wondered if her "blindingly blonde" color was real (we think so based on her web site). [Final 9/18/4]
