One word: burqa.

Perhaps this is what set Travis off.

Psychedelic George said...

Coming soon in a new Tim Burton/Johnny Depp movie.

Darcy said...

That's barking hot.

Pogo said...

One word: depilatory.

AllenS said...

Hair plugs on steroids.

Pogo said...

Weird, but pretty women with hideous hairdos are still pretty.

TC Powell said...

It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the her dog breath.

Meade said...

"Weird, but pretty women with hideous hairdos are still pretty..." hideous.

jayne_cobb said...

Dear God,

I'd thought she skinned a dog at first.

traditionalguy said...

Westminster Dog Show wannabes?... The perfect date to take to the PETA Charity Ball?...or the new uniform for Cub Scout Den Mothers?...No wait, wait, I've got it, Wood Nymphs from the Hugh Hefner's Petting Zoo (Couldn't see their Breasts to make certain ID). The Feminists will find this either(1)demeaning to all women, or (2)sexually arousing to all liberated women, or (3)Proof that another billion of Free Federal Money needs to go directly into Women's Rabies Vacination Programs.

These hairstyles are for women who don't want too much attention paid to their face.

TC Powell said...

I bet she's a bitch.

MadisonMan said...

Professor, perhaps your stylist can put a squirrel in your hair.

pundette said...

The animal heads and antlers give off a pagan vibe.

k*thy said...

Oh my.

jeff said...

They lose a bet?

Curtiss said...

No beavers?

Pogo said...

Oh Meade, you are very very wrong.

A beautiful woman can do all sorts of crazy with her hair and still be beautiful.

Let's just say that were any of those models my girlfriend, I could ignore the unusual hairpiece. Were she my wife I would pop for a new hairdresser, of course.

Now, men?
Ugh. Too Travis-y, no matter the hairstyle.

Henry Buck said...

David wins the thread.

traditionalguy said...

Davey Crockett wannabes, maybes?...Please, please don't wear this hairstyle out into the dark Purple Forest during hunting season Professor,unless you are the Sniper/hunter in the Tree Stand. I hear that they shoot wolves in Alaska, and Wisconsin is way up North too.

I Kissed a Squirrel and I Liked It! :)

John Burgess said...

This is the perfect solution for those who do not wish to be parted from their departed pets! Why go through the expense of plots at pricey pet cemeteries? Why settle for two-dimensional images of pets who have passed?

This is to be encouraged. It will provide jobs for underemployed taxidermists and is thus suited to be included in any economic stimulus bill.

Henry Buck said...

The giraffe head is my favorite.

ricpic said...

I agree with pundette: this is all about the return of paganism.

traditionalguy said...

Where do you guys learn so much about Paganism? Do they have churches in California? Here in Georgia, after Andy Jackson removed the pagan tribes to Oklahoma in 1830, we have not seen a lot of pagan worship around. Granted, the internet can teach evil to anyone who is curious enough to want that "spiritual help".It sounds to me like wanting to learn about AIDS by getting a case of it.

Ann Althouse said...

If I get that squirrel do, is Darcy going to like me too much?

Darcy said...

Hee hee. You're safe, Althouse!
Playing off of a popular song. ;-)

ricpic said...

tradguy - Paganism doesn't have to be learned, it's what the creature that has not become a human being falls back into.

Jim said...

I found them rather fetching.

Hmm. I always thought evil was the pompous suppression of other religions and the forcing of belief on others.

traditionalguy said...

With the paganism meme in mind, I looked again at the entire layout of models. They do all seem to have that Blank look of victims being lead into a sacrifice being held in honor of their Pagan Master. Maybe this is the trendy styling for pagan Virgins to wear into the Temple of Doom. Tell me again why the pompous Judeo-Christian traditions are out of favor these days.

Meade said...

traditionalguy: A small side peeve of mine -- "Judeo-Christian." Does anyone know where that comes from? I love what I know of both Judaism and Christianity. So why the hyphenization of the two? And then why not "Christo-Judaic?" It seems somehow disrespectful to me.

Skyler said...

creepy.

traditionalguy said...

Meade... despite a spirited competition with one another, the same scriptures are believed, and Christian was all Judeo for many years. Jesus' claim was to be the Judeo Messiah (King) was the Crime for which the Romans killed him. Every New Testament book was written by Jews to Jews or to some Gentiles that Peter and Paul, (both Jews), were lead to accept into the Judeo Covenant. so that's about it. I also have always heard of this as a single cultural tradition based on The Book of all of the writings of the inspired Hebrew prophets' recorded sayings from Moses thru Jesus.

Pogo said...

I would date any one of them.
I wouldn't look up very often, though.

Meade said...

Thanks, tradguy. That helps a little. But I would still prefer to see both words spelled out fully: Christian Judaic.

JSF said...

Ann,

I see a lot of that style of hair when I go to Goth clubs in Hollywood. There is more whenre that came from (and even weirder and more interesting shapes)

Meade said...

You squirrels are so magical!

JohnAnnArbor said...

A narwhal would poke your eye out.

traditionalguy said...

Meade... OK.

Bruce Hayden said...

traditionalguy - My understanding is that a lot of Biblical scholars believe that Luke was written by a Greek, and not by a Jew.

Pogo said...

Do women often think "if only I had the face of a dog on top of my head, why then all my dreams would come true?

Or is this the female equivalent of a tattoo obtained while drunk?

Are fleas a problem?

Will people call you a bitch?

I would be up for a girl with this if she, like dogs, needed to hump things nearby.

It would be most cool if the girl also had a dog with her face on top of its head.

Buford Gooch said...

That's nothing. Have you seen the dead raccoon on Balgo's head?

Ann Althouse said...

You know, it's really just a hair hat. And a hat in the shape an animal isn't such an odd thing (if you look back a ways into historical fashion).

Ann Althouse said...

If it were a bird shaped hat, it would seem perfectly ordinary. It's the way the hair of the hat is the same as the rest of the hair that makes it so odd.

JLTaylor said...

Mutterly rediculous

BJM said...

No leopard pill box hat? How disappointing.

Be sure to check out the awesome ice waves page on the site.

Henry Buck said...

And how did they get all of that hair for those creations? Why, they simply shaved these babies!

Christy said...

I knew a guy who skied in a hat made from a bear's head. First time I ever laid eyes on him was New Year's Day, skiing in a tuxedo and bear head. I confess I was smitten. I love a guy in a tux. (Actually it turns out we'd met the summer before at a toga party where he sported scarlet and gold as a Roman General, but that's another story.)

AlphaLiberal said...

Attractive. Not. Nothing like a woman with a pig's head on her head to light a fire.

But, no poodles?

Pogo said...

I call bullshit on the haters, at least the guy haters.

Most of youse guys are doofuses, like me. Betcha it's so. Look inna mirror and deny it.

Now, you're at a bar, quaffing a few brewskis, and one of dese ladies here with the dogfaced hair slips into your lap, runs her finger in a curlycue on your balding pate, whispers hey you, you're kinda cute and you know exactly what your response is:
Yes. You betcha. Whatever you say ma'am.

Admit it.

Smilin' Jack said...

True, which makes me wonder why women spend so much time and energy on hairstyles. A guy pays about as much attention to a woman's hairstyle as he does to her fingernail polish. We have more important things to consider.

Pogo said...

...which makes me wonder why women spend so much time and energy on hairstyles...

Status. It's jockeying for position in the chick hierarchy.

However, that appears to be determined by gay men who are, it appears, utter misogynists.

David said...

"Admit it."

Yes, you betcha. Whatever you say, Pogo.

Ralph said...

The ultimate in false fronts, and I'll bet she paints, too.

Saw the photo, thought: WTF? Still thinking it.
