as i've bemoaned 8224 times, i have this overwhelming and excruciating guilt over unfinished memes. so. i have spring-cleaned this journal, and have organised all the unfilled discussion prompts into categories. they are as follows:

  • wrong!ship awareness meme slots

  • blogging about fictional characters

  • television reviews

  • random shit

under this last category: hair, the subject of this post.

background: ten billion years ago [livejournal.com profile] eowyn_315 requested a picspam of Nina Dobrev's hair. however, rather than limit my hair appreciation i've decided to make like Laura herself and pay respects to hair from various fandoms. with photoshop.

if y'all think you're ready for that action then follow the cut.

but first --


  • the female cast of Game of Thrones #when good hair happens to bad shows

  • Reign's hair accessories

  • all of the female Upper East side plastics on Gossip Girl

  • Buffy Summers circa season five

  • Inara Serra's glossy black tresses (most similar in colour to yours truly!!!!)

  • basically every period show in my intro post

and now the top five, in alphabetical order because i have not the strength to count down


i actually can't stare directly at these pictures... my cat edited this for me.


NATURAL CURLS, MOTHERFUCKER!!1!1!1!!!!!!! fight me.


(note: in putting together the above caps i was reminded in full force the dismal quality of this television program's lighting. R.I.H.)

i haven't gone here in 79 billion years and yet, in the name of this post, i was compelled to revisit homeofthenutty's gallery and compile this scant tribute to some of the greatest hair of our time.

hilarious story: Laura actually chose the other doppelganger over the above, with the rationalisation that "Elena's poker-straight hair is just as unattainably gorgeous as her Katherine curls." to that i say:


it was a herculean effort to choose between Margaery and Sansa and queen C, but the Dormer thirst destroys all in its path. :| :| :| :| :| :| :|

:| :| :| :| :| :| :| :| :| :|


y'all were expecting Blair. don't mistake me, my heart says Blair, but... my eyeballs... say otherwise. yes, even with my apathy towards Blake Lively's face. no one is more dismayed than i. i feel unclean in my soul. i will pay for this sin, some moment when i least expect it.

TL;DR 👌 @:

  • natural curls

  • if not that, then well-tamed unnatural curls. each time i use a curling iron i feel a dread that can only befit the rebirth of voldemort. (if anyone has any curling hacks hmu.)

  • elaborate 'dos designed for less homicidal people. see: Lucrezia's twisty braid hairnet bun contraption.

  • non-beige middle parts

  • the "completely implausible yet charmingly unkempt" look. see: Serena's veritable MANE. *crosses self*

here endeth the spam. COMMENTS? QUESTIONS? VITRIOLIC DISPUTES? spam your faves that i ignored. peace 'n' blessings.

not that the other ladies dont have gr10 wigs too, BUT!!!! margery's heart shaped swoop basically impossible to recreate without hairspray and/or heat tools, making it the unattainable got hair, thus she wins.

ALISHHAAAAAAAAAAAA :') you know how i feel

20/20 on your serena sex hair spam, muchly appreciated (but still lmfao that you had to swallow that pill and even went so far as to make it official, i'm so proud of u)

what i'm really interested in though is an alex!hair picspam WHEN CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO A COMPILATION OF THOSE??? maybe you could do a colour evolution thing? alternatively i would also accept your voldemort curls versus natural glory spam.

of course you did that.

L M F A O, ia. \o/ for our solidarity. only the likes of Dormer could look fly with a heart-shaped swoop.


re: Serena - thanks for being here in my time of despair.

what i'm really interested in though is an alex!hair picspam WHEN CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO A COMPILATION OF THOSE???
i should have foreseen this... the colour evolution idea is impossible since i don't have photos of my previous hairs (fyi i'm deliberately absent in photos). but lol, the Voldemort curls might actually be doable since Liz harassed me for post-curling pics literally the other day. y'all are the same mess.

LUCREZIA'S HAIR IS GOD. And I don't even watch the show, but I do have eyes.

I would only object at Margaery, but mostly because I know it's fake hair and it feels like cheating. I only like the hair porn when it's the actual actor/actress' hair. I'm old fashoned that way. I also see that you really like curly hair and being the girl who looked like an actual doll because of curls in her 20/22 I've always been attracted to straight hair. Like wanting what you can't have. Except not because now my hair is straight? How does that work??

Anyway, HAIR. <3 <3 <3

The Borgias is no more, tragically, but I hope you're saving Tumblr gifs of Lucrezia's hair.

Nicely groomed wigs are good enough for this blog tbh!!

Listen, naturally curly haired people are told to turn straight all their lives, so I get it. I regret missing your time of doll!curls, although your current short hair is rad!

Amy Pond's hair forever, girl

I'd agree with Laura actually, both the dopplegangers would make my list. But I'm biased, I prefer straight hair.

And then the entire thing would be rounded off by the ladies from LotR and their spectacular hair in the films.

No argument on Amy, but I couldn't very well copy Laura's choice, could I??

Real talk, I've become lowkey anti-straight hair because of how much it's prised over (vilified) natural curls. Hence why I made a point to include Alisha.

And this is a TV hair post, thus my snubbing of LotR hair.

My question is: what is the natural state of the doppelganger? Straight or curly? Or horribly frizzy in between? Because one or both of them must be doing major daily hair care, because they both can't roll out of bed with opposite hair.

My current favorite for unattainable fabulous hair is Freddie Lounds from Hannibal.

YOU ASK COMPELLING QUESTIONS. My theory is both. But we may never know.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION. That is indeed covet-worthy hair. (ALSO: RED.)

YES THIS. Freddie's hair is glorious. It's like Merida's hair, but IRL.

Maybe the doppelganger's natural hair is wavy, like Nina's? In that case, I guess both Elena and Katherine would have to do an equal amount of hair-wrangling. It's impressive to think Elena could get her hair that straight on her own, but I feel like Katherine would just hypnotize herself a handmaiden to do her hair for her.

I really wish I knew whether Lara Jean Chorostecki has natural curls or a perm or what. I'd like to think I could look like that with the right kind of perm, because I have a lot of hair. Though given that this is TV, someone could be painstakingly curling every piece with a tiny curling iron.

It's impressive to think Elena could get her hair that straight on her own, but I feel like Katherine would just hypnotize herself a handmaiden to do her hair for her.

I used to try to straighten my own long hair, and it is an impossible task. Go Elena.

I wish I had someone to compel to do my hair, lol. But surely Katherine has mastered the basics of a curling iron, because what about the days when there is no one nearby to compel, WHAT THEN. Granted, curling your own hair in the days of yore with actual hot irons probably does require someone else.

From: [personal profile] verdant_fire
I haven't seen her in anything else, so that's a good point; I actually have no idea what her hair's natural state is. It does look perm-y, but a few people actually have tight ringlets like that, so who knows. I assume that's her natural color, though, which is awesome on its own. Dyed red hair usually looks fake unless you have a celebrity-level colorist to dye it like six different shades for verisimilitude.

I used to try to straighten my own long hair, and it is an impossible task. Go Elena.

LOTS OF HAIR solidarity. I also have long hair, which is quite curly, and I can attest that trying to straighten it is just an exercise in futility. Fortunately I like the curls, but the only time my hair is straight is when I have a hairstylist to do it for me. Though to be fair, I have no hair skill whatsoever. Special events usually lead to me wrestling with my hair for 20 minutes, getting more and more frustrated, and then going "...I can probably get away with a ponytail."

I got a perm and it looked nothing like that, lol. I got a tight perm, but just the sheer volume, the separation of strands that Freddie achieves, is something I couldn't get. Though there's a regular perm and a spiral perm, and maybe some other technique that I haven't heard of.

Freddie's hair looks slightly different in S2, still curly but less volume (more like what my hair looked like). And in S3, it's a different look altogether. Her S1 hair is my favorite, in terms of sheer magnificence. How does it look like that, HOW.

From: [personal profile] verdant_fire
Ah yes, the S3 murder husbands hair. I forgot that her style changed down the line. I too prefer the S1 hair, just for sheer volume and glory. I have no idea how such magnificence is achieved, but I admire it. And with hair that big, it probably really is full of secrets. ;)

EXCELLENT CHOICES. You have good taste I approve.

Buffy Summers circa season five


Inara Serra's glossy black tresses (most similar in colour to yours truly!!!!)

I am sighing over your hair now!

I could not agree more about Katherine >>>>>>> Elena hair-wise.

i am fully down the infinite rabbit hole & i wanna talk about it becauSEEEEEE YEAH, INFINITE IS A LOT?? i think i may have read EVERY fic. and i really?? love all of them. but maybe biases are dongwoo (most wonderfully delightful human being on the planet? maybe?) and myungsoo (i love love love that useless emotional baby) and ofc sungjong for Reasons

i just want to hear all about ur infinite feelings basically

now that i've got that out of the way.

oho, EVERY fic? IS YOU SURE ABOUT THAT. tell me everything, link yo faves, let us contrast & compare, etc.

i'm so glad you've converted yourself to the church of ot7 so i didn't have to do all the work. you have chosen wisely -- Dongwoo and Sungjong are the most reasonable biases tbh. Myungsoo otoh... lol. secret fave for reasons.

"i just want to hear all about ur infinite feelings basically" lol. be careful what you wish for. but listen, now that you're in the pit, it's time for more tl;dr linkage. (LISTEN, I COULD FEELS!VOMIT @ YOU ABOUT ALL THE MEMBERS BUT WHY BOTHER WHEN LAUREN HAS ALREADY SAID EVERYTHING.)

well. i am NOT SURE about that, but i did go through almost their entire ao3 tag, read all of lauren's fics (ofc) and did a good amount of Deep lj searching. LET'S SEE my ao3 bookmarks seem to consist mostly of lirazel, apocalypse fic, and fic about infinite h being exhausted. so. that's fine. i love pain, nothing new. also unipala on lj, i've been reading and re-reading all their shit for a month. PLEASE THOUGH IF YOU HAVE FAVE FAVES PLEASE GIVE THEM TO ME i may have read them, but i am bad at saving things and i probably want to re-read them anyway~

good god, ot7 is a lot. and i am Very Here for any pairing, so.

i love myungsoo sOOOOOoooOOOOooo much, how did i end up this way. so much, my clingy emotional ridiculous BABY. i love them all though tbh, though those three do give me most frequent Feelings. but i really, all of them are a lot (i'm leaving the sungyeol-biased role for mara, she loves noodle boys god bless her soul)

that dancing video is A+++ quality content, i am So Here for myungsoo being ridiculous (and embarassed about it, but not enough to stop. aka his entire life) and howon acting silly <3

"a face like mine is rare" god bless u sungjong

i am Very Glad that the first thing in the woohyun section is about his nose, I LOVE HIS NOSE SO MUCH. but also i can't think too much abt him because i am also Worried about him and ouch


SUNGGYU IS VERY INTERESTING, very interesting as a leader i just??? want to write about him maybe and figure him out

thank for that post, that was excellent. also i read through their ship post a while ago when i was just trying to figure infinite out, and that was also excellent

LMFAO, YOU WENT THROUGH THE WHOLE AO3 TAG? you are a stronger soul than i. but i salute you on the Lauren stalking. nor can i fault you on your bookmarking priorities. and YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND - i hereby present to you this memories folder of mine, 90% of which is Infinite for i am a myopic soul. enjoy. suffer. cry.

Myungsoo is a 15 y.o. girl trapped in an adult body which explains well my spiritual connection with him tbh.

("noodle boys" omfgkalj;glksdj;lg)

you're referring to the "come back again" parody, i assume? in any case Myungsoo mocking his own flopness never gets old. (*^▽^*) (*^▽^*) (*^▽^*)

"a face like mine is rare"

did he lie

Woohyun's nose could cut a man, i love it.

but also i can't think too much abt him because i am also Worried about him and ouch

gurl, how do you think it feels having him for a bias. (though Sungyeol is rivalling Woohyun in being Worrisome of late.)

Dongwoo IS the hottest, where are the lies???? yet the kpop world considers him a visual error. mess.

don't tell anyone this, but Sunggyu is lowkey my secret brethren... if we'd gone to the same high school we'd have run in the same crowds, i am 99.5% positive of this. tell no one.

the moral of this story is that Lauren is Yoda.

FUCK YEAH. THANK YOU SO MUCH i can't wait to suffer ♥ ♥ ♥

myungsoo is amazing

(a long and floppy breed of boy, e.g. sehun & yibo)

YES myungsoo mocking his own floppiness w/o hesitation but ALSO with his whole face inside his hood, what a perfect combo of self-aware and embarassed i'm in love

GOD i'm sorry that woohyun is ur bias i can't even imagine. also sungyeol nooOOOo, do i even want to know?? i worry so much

ugh dongwoo is DEFINITELY the hottest i don't understand anything

lmaoooo i am so glad to know that you and sunggyu are bffs. i.... probably would've hung out w/myungsoo tbh. we would've been 15 year old girls together

("a long and floppy breed of boy" lajs;doij;dslfj lol sehun)


lol, no one is sorrier than myself.

you don't want to know but i'll tell you anyway: sungyeol and woohyun are typically the ones with the most alarming body image issues but sungyeol has really worsened in recent times. nothing to see here.

i distrust anyone who finds dongwoo ugly. i assume they'll fall into a dumpster eventually.

oh, make no mistake, myungsoo would also have been my brethren in high school. both he and sunggyu fall into the "uncool introverts with artistic leanings" crowd imo. ^_^
