Hair of the God

There's the early Season 1 longer locks that they foolishly tried to straighten.

There are just a few speckles of grey.

Next come the later Season 1 shorter curls.

In Malignant in Season 2 Bobby's hair starts out as if he's taken it on holiday.

Then it returns to its previous shorter, more sober style...

...before going off on another holiday.
And his sideburns are getting greyer.

In Season 3 his hair is short and sweet.

It took some of us a while to warm to his Wellesian locks in Season 4.

By the end of Season 4 he's been good and clipped again, with that cute little quiff at the front.

At times in Season 5 they seem almost to have scalped him.

Then there is the perfection of Season 6, the best Bobby hair ever, as far as I'm concerned.

Season 7 is all over the place, from the almost shaven head of Amends... the rather more unruly locks of Vanishing Act.

Season 8 episodes having been shown all in the wrong order, I just can't follow what was happening to Bobby's hair. And neither could they!

Sadly, Season 9 was too short for us to work out where Bobby's crowning glory was going. But it was looking pretty good.

I like the earliest seasons best!

Season 6 does it for me. I just wanna run my fingers through his curls!

Have to agree with Val. Season 6 hair was da bomb!

Season 2 it actually my fav. Love the longer sideburns too.

Season 4 is my favorite.

It's fun to look at all the seasons like that and see how he's aged.

Kind of like when you go to your grandmother's house and you look at all your school portraits on the wall.

Oh Beverly, I so agree. That first cap there makes me melt. However, I love his hair the best in "Albatross," which was in Val's favorite season, right? I've joked elsewhere that he looked so delicious in that episode that I had to watch it three times before I heard a word anyone said.

I always hated that they tried to straighten out the curls and gave him a 'comb-forward' in some of the earlier episodes, clearly not appreciating his forehead OR our beloved curls. As long as it's on his head, I'm fine with it, but I've a tendency to love the curls and his hair a bit longer, although I prefer it Vincent-style, not Orsonified ;0)

I love every single hair on his head -- long, short, no matter what "they" do with it! (But Season 6 *was* awesome!)

I have a great shot of "killer curls" to add, but have been unable to figure out how to include a "shot" in the comments.

It is a picture I took in August at the Don't Go Into the Woods screening and do apologize in advance for the quality but is good good enough to make the point.

Love this post also......and at the risk of redundancy, he is unbelievably more gorgeous in the "flesh" than I would have imagined.

If there is a way I can share it, please let me know.

I don't know how either, Marian, but you could email it to me at, then I could post it for everyone. I know we'd all love it.
