B.M.O.C.: Best Manes On Campus
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 -- with 2013-14 marking our 11th season of BMOC's.
LOYOLA MARYMOUNT: TAYLOR SCIOSCIA.
Her hair is so long that she once donated ten inches to "Locks of Love." It's so thick and strong (or perhaps she is) that she's won a college "strength and conditioning award." And her background in volleyball is so athletic, because her father is a former major league baseball catcher. That great combination won this sociology major the title in a seven-way tournament, two weeks after graduation - topping Madison Heilamnn 10-5 in the finals. (Final 5/23/14)
(Third through seventh place: Ashley Rodriguez; Krista Hewko, Tawni Martino, Alyssa Walton, Ayana Whitaker tied.)
WICHITA STATE: MOGIE CURMODE.
She's the 2014 Homecoming Queen, who's preparing to graduate with a degree in communication sciences and disorders. She plans to work with disabled children - but she seems very "abled" when it comes to preparing medium-long hair. (Posted 4/28/14)
NOTRE DAME: MONICA ROBINSON.
A freshman from California with no declared major is "#4 singles" on the tennis team. But she's number one when it comes to soft blonde hair, as she won a South Bend City League title which took several weeks to earn. (Posted 4/12/14)
ARKANSAS STATE: SHARIKA NELVIS.
She's known as the "Hurdle-Holic" on Twitter, having won the national indoor 60-meter title during the winter. This redshirt-senior sociology major appealed to the curl-crazed side of us. We admire how she's not afraid to run fast in meets with her hair unpinned and a bit messy-looking, yet still strong. (Posted 4/1/14)
TEXAS A&M-CORPUS CHRISTI: VALARIE MOEHRIG.
This freshman nursing major was a high school volleyball star, who apparently redshirted this past fall. Yet her long waves were healthy enough to dominate a five-woman field, which was praised by a voter for "awesome hair all around." (Final 3/24/14)
(Second through fifth place: Sandra Burges; Cecilia Jones; Nicole Soifua, Judit Vives tied.)
GEORGIA REGENTS: COURTNEY HINESLEY.
A first-year student who won the 2013 "Miss Gwinnett" title in suburban Atlanta, and was a two-time "Outstanding Teen" before that. She's turned up the thickness and waves in recent years - so we can't blame one of her relatives (we think) for nominating her here. (Posted 3/6/14)
PROVIDENCE: RACHEL UGOLIK.
A first-year student from Connecticut officially has not decided on a major. But Hair Fans decided this young soccer star's long blonde hair was the most impressive her college has. She crushed Beth Hoyt and Colleen McCollum (tied) in a three-way race with 89 percent of the vote -- even though Hoyt had placed second in the Providence City League only days before. (Final 2/25/14)
WEST FLORIDA: DANIELLE SANDERS.
A senior sports administration major is a leader on the softball team, fast enough to rank among the leaders in stolen bases. Her auburn-red waves were strong enough to win the City League title in her college town, Pensacola. (Posted 2/10/14)
COLUMBUS STATE (GA) CHALLENGE ROUND: AMARINDA TREAR.
For the first time in BMOC history, a campus champ faced a challenger within the same term. This senior music major who's competed in "right to life" pageants was praised by a Hair Fan for "naturally wavy blonde hair that curls beautifully." It held strongly enough to bring down our "Bionic Woman" Kaitlin Tatum, 12-10. (Final 2/3/14)
December 2013-January 2014: KAITLIN TATUM.
With the defending champion at this competitive college moving out of state, a ten-woman contest turned into a river of blondes. A first-year business student, teen pageant finalist and volleyball player dubbed by some "The Bionic Woman" for her surgeries had stronger curls, to edge Morgan Knight in the finals 12-11. (Final 1/8/14)
Third through tenth place: Andi Larese; Casey Googe, Jackie Hellett tied; Kim Blake, Rebecca Calder, Samantha Hollis, Kodi Ricketson, Shelby Rolling tied.
ALABAMA: CHANDLER CHAMPION.
A junior dance and journalism major who won the 2013 Miss Alabama pageant. Her long waves didn't go far at Miss America, but they were strong enough to make her a rare state "champion" to be offered for our Hot List. (Posted 1/15/14)
NORTH DAKOTA STATE: SHAYLEE THOMAS.
The high school commencement picture of this first-year student had waves which impressed us. A publication from her church denomination says she'll major either in English education or photojournalism. (Posted 12/7/13)
MISSOURI STATE: MEGAN NICKLES.
This first-year student from eastern Iowa is majoring in communication sciences and disorders. She's sending messages in many ways -- with thick long curls which can get anyone's attention, by running quickly in distance races, and by running away from an eight-woman pack here with 59 percent of your votes. She then went on to lead the "Elite Eight" BMOC poll for this season. (Final 11/21/13)
Second through eighth place: Natalie Catani; Taeler Marshall and Heather Snyder tied; Rebecca Amparano, Anna Conway, Shawna Elsey and Evan Stamp tied.
UTAH: GISELLE SLOTBOOM.
Jacksonville State lost a lot when she transferred west. A holder of nine school distance records now is a junior, a member of the Dutch national track team -- and while competing for the Netherlands in Super-Hair World Cup IV qualifying, she ran away with a three-woman competition. (Final 11/7/13)
Second and third place: Marissa Mendenhall, Haley Lange.
ST. ANSELM (NH): TERESA RUSSO.
A sophomore on the cross-country team won a five-way race at this small New England school, and gained praise from a voter for having the "thickest and fullest" hair of the field. She dominated the final round 12-3. (Final 10/18/13)
Second through fifth place: Kelsey McKeon, Christine Woods, Michaela Jancsy-Krista O'Gare tied.
McNEESE STATE: DESARAE COUTHREN.
A senior psychology major had a productive "summer break," winning the City League title in her college town of Lake Charles, Louisiana. Her interesting mix of sleek long hair, bangs and a sidepart probably stays well under control -- even in her speedy sport specialty, the 400-meter hurdles. [Posted 9/15/13]
HOLY CROSS: JACLYN CARROLL.
This sophomore hasn't decided on a major yet. But she was a dominating tennis player in high school, which earned her a place on the college team -- and hair which one voter said has "awesome body" dominated the final match of a six-way contest by smashing Jenn Walsh 16-3. [Final 9/4/13]
Third through sixth place: Allie Arduini, Shay Feeley, Kelly Hammer, Emily Popp tied.
