B.M.O.C.: Best Manes On Campus - 2017-18


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. We marked 15 years of BMOC's in the 2017-18 term!

SASKATCHEWAN: Elizabeth Salyn.

A three-women fight involving ice hockey players ended in favor of this third-year nursing major and "all-academic" member from Edmonton. She defeated Teagan Borbondy and Bailee Bourassa with 50 percent of the votes, to become our second Canadian BMOC. [Final 5.25.18]


Who was the recruiter who somehow persuaded a swimmer from Hawaii to attend college in central Alaska? This first-year child development major traded the tropics for the Arctic, but kept her long sidepart which conquered fellow "Nanook" Markie Miller in the final round of a tournament 6-1. [Final 5.11.18]

(Third-fourth place: Melinda Farmer, Tatjana Spaic tied.)


She apparently is graduating during this term, and has an internship with a regional labor court. Her well-cut loose fringe gained a big following on Instagram, and makes history here for two reasons: a Crown Award for Best Bangs and our first-ever BMOC entry from Latin America. [Posted 4.20.18]

CREIGHTON: Katie Sullivan.

A seven-woman struggle in Omaha brought a suggestion on Twitter to add a male student. But our race ended with a first-year biology student and soccer goalie stopping all comers. She rebounded from a weak second week to beat Brittany Witt 10-3 in the finals. [Final 4.10.18]

(Third through seventh place; "Angel" from dance team; Lydia Dimke, Kaira Houser, Brittany Lawrence, "Morgan" from dance team tied.)

ARIZONA: Kimberly Gutierrez.

This ­­­­­sociology major was suggested by a Hair Fan for San Francisco. But she transferred from there, to spend her senior season playing "power conference" volleyball. Now the Tijuana native may become a social worker, or a Mexican national athlete. [Posted 3.14.18]

LAGRANGE (GA): Liz Minick.

We overlooked her in a City League contest, but a Hair Fan spotted this junior nursing major and varsity tennis player. A nomination here brought her two-thirds support over City League runner-up Michaela Keel and Payton Smith. [Final 3.3.18]

WASHBURN (KS): Hunter Bentley.

One year ago, she was the Kansas City area high school girls' basketball player of the year. Now this first-year student who's interested in political science is the Topeka City League champion, thanks to impressive long styles. [Posted 2.17.18]

TOLEDO: Rhyen Neal.

A first-year student from Indiana took the volleyball team by storm, as a "defensive specialist" who also led in service aces. The "undeclared" major with long flowing hair edged Allison Dicke 6-5 in our online contest. [Final 2.10.18]


Go to the right farmers' market and you'll find this first-year student, who's also a substitute on the soccer team. She's grown a medium-long style with thick bangs that could be the goal of many Hair Fans. [Posted 1.27.18]

PROVIDENCE: Madison Doherty.

She's a senior majoring in marketing and a top defender on the soccer team. Her head coach praised her for "strength, athleticism and speed" - and her long blonde mane lasted a while in the local City League, finishing third. [Posted 1.20.18]

WEBER STATE: Halle Evans.

A five-way fight at a university in Utah ended with a sophomore setter in volleyball victorious. One Hair Fan praised this transfer from Houston for "a touch more body and more waves," as she topped Paige Dilmore in the final round 10-5. [Final 1.13.18]

Third through fifth place: Kylie Harris, Aubrey Saunders tied; Paulina Rodriguez.


She stands only five feet tall, but this future accountant is big on the volleyball court - earning academic all-district honors in her senior season. Her long waves add up well with Hair Fans, as she finished third in the Las Cruces City League tournament. [Posted 12.6.17]

REGIS (CO): Christina Kennedy.

The third-year senior's long hair flies invitingly (somehow both straight and curled) in cross-country meets. It probably needs no physical therapy, which is her career goal. And it dominated a three-way race, winning 73 percent of your votes. She went on to be this term's "Elite Eight" leader. [Final 11.25.17]

Second-third place: Maddie Labor, Tamara Brcina.

SOUTHERN METHODIST: Haylee Schoonover.

This junior from Arizona is skilled in both equestrian events and long blonde hair. She won the Las Cruces City League title while attending New Mexico State. But that college apparently shut down its stable, so now she's a transfer who's riding with the Mustangs. [Posted 11.4.17]

BELLARMINE (KY): Carly Anson.

A senior from Ohio who's majoring in nursing has made both goals and saves on the field hockey team. Her well-teased long hair scored a quick win in a four-way fight. [Final 10.21.17]

(Second through fourth place: Kira Steinke; Jillian Fazio, Daisy Letch tied.)

COLUMBUS STATE (GA): Darby Demarest.

A junior who's not only a power pitcher on the softball team, but an academic all-conference athlete. Her control of long hair earned her second place in the always-tough Columbus City League tournament. [Posted 9.29.17]


A Hair Fan found two "sisters" with good hair on the volleyball squad at the "first college in Memphis." A sophomore from across the state in Chattanooga proved to have stronger hair than a senior, knocking off Nina Tuszynski 8-5. [Final 9.19.17]


She's not an instruction building, but a senior who plays soccer. A Hair Fan may have recommended her because of medium-long hair prepared well for holding - or is it because she's from Shreveport? [Posted 8.30.17]


A sophomore from west Texas went to the far north to compete as an all-round athlete in the pentathlon. Her intensity when running the hurdles is matched only by her long lush hair, which tied for third in the Anchorage City League contest. [Posted 8.20.17]
