March Madness - The Hairpocalypse Round 1D

This year we were inspired us to examine the crazy hair stylings of the Whedonverse, so we've dubbed this March Madness "The Hairpocalypse". In this tournament so far, some of the best and worst Whedonverse hair has battled against each other. We're voting here for hair that's so memorably bombastic, it could start the apocalypse itself.

Recapping last round:
- Angelus's astounding 'stache from "Amends" took down Sunday's mini-Bjork knots with a vengeance
- Gile's burnout hair (which was drugged by Band Candy) took out Kendra's "Jenny from the Block" 'do
- Another one of Angel's bad wigs kicked Cordy's Bad Bangs' ass (they weren't that bad, looking back.)
- And tragedy struck! When the worst Whedonverse hair of all, Cordy's infamous blond crop somehow lost to Buffy's caveman chic from "Beer Bad". RIP Cordy's tragic Blond, you coulda been a contenda.

Here we are at the end of Round 1!  This round will have 4 matches and will end Tuesday night at 11:59 PM EST. After that Round 2 will immediately begin.

Vote below for the Whedonverse hair style that is so bad-ass (or just plain bad) that it would bring forth the apocalypse:

My picks:

Cordy's Shag (come on!)

River's Twists - Buffy's braid period went on a while, but it wasn't that memorable. River's hair seemed wet for just as many eps and definitely stayed with me.

Willow the White - it isn't bad, but it's pretty bad ass.

Fitting that Cap'n Hammers pouf and Buffy's pouf are facing each other. Gotta go with Buffy here. The Bouffant French Twist in "The Witch" is even worse. What were they thinking??

First, I just love the Buffyfest tourneys!

I voted:
- against Cordy's shag and for Dark Willow. Hey, she worried about dark roots until the end of S7!
- River's twists. Had to be. Other than Buffy's "Beer Bad" hair? To me, she always looked beautiful.
- This was a tough one, but HAD to go with Willow's transformation and the white hair! That was the very best moment of the series conclusion. "That was nifty."
- Captain HammerPants all the way!

Heh. I had a Buffy braid when my hair was long. sic. Hey, my college girlfriends loved it (note: I was a wee bit flakey:) )

P.S. Hated Gandalf's gay sister's do.

"Hated Gandalf's gay sister's do." Hahaha!!! Now that was funny, mbatz. I, too, voted for her, as well as greasy-headed River and Buffy's boof.

I can't believe that it's even possible for Cordy's hair to get worse as this tourney goes on, but this one takes the cake. She looks like an 80s hair band prototype.
