    Okay, people, it's time to talk about something serious... Kathryn's hair.

    Which style did you like best?

    A style from Seasons 1 through 7?

    Oh my a poll that I didn`t do?!

    I vote season 1, because that hair made Janeway famous! Although I liked all her styles...

    I thought I'd branch out. :bolian: Besides, we can't let you have all the fun!

    I like season 5. The color was good. The cut was becoming, and it didn't feel like there were too many extensions it. For some reason, the other 'dos to me felt like there were too 'volume-ized'.

    Actually I`m watching season 5 at the moment, and I was thinking her hair had way to much Volume and color, it has actually resulted in me turning the color option on the dvd down to soft. Which means you can`t see the outside ship shots clearly. Which means the cool ship fights have to be paused and the color re-adjusted so I can enjoy the cool special effects......

    And that is all I have to say about that.....:alienblush:[​IMG]

    I never liked the giant bun on her head... it always made her look older then she was, not to mention more stuffy-looking.

    IMO, there's only two hair styles.... the Bun and her Hair Down.... everything else is just tweaks of the two..... then again, I'm a guy with no real fashion sense in the first place, so what do I know?

    Voted Season 5.... the death of the Bun.

    The bun annoyed me. A lot.

    Rather than rant, I'll just let Praxius speak for me:

    Anyway, I voted for the power pony, although I liked all the dos other than the bun. Well, OK, other than the bun and the :borg:.

    I like the Season Five look, the French twist and the long hair with sides pulled back that was her casual look in Seasons 1 & 2.

    BTW, Adm_Hawthorne: You left the French twist out of your poll. I'm not sure if that's intentional or not but perhaps akiraprise or I could use our "special mod powers" to edit it for you. I didn't want to make an attempt without your say so though.

    Actually, I kind of liked the "natural" look before they stuck the wig on her (and they had to reshoot scenes already shot), altho voted for season 5. Supposedly the bun was decided on to add height, when they weren't sure KM wouldn't look too short against the guys. Well, thankfully that thinking went out after a couple seasons; the wig didn't look very natural. (Altho I did get a kick on how KJ could put her hair back up so quickly after it would fall.)

    Season 5 was my favorite Season of Voyager. It is also now my favorite year for Janeway's hairdo, too.

    From a personal point of view, its season one, where she had her hair long. Infact many of my online friends in a Long hair forum, are still trying to work out how they did her hair in those first few seasons. (NB the bun on top is called a Gibson)

    From a military point of view, a lot of the hair cuts just would not be put up with. She would have had to wear her hair above, and not touching the collar. Season 1 and the first few others got it near to being right, neat, tidy, off the collar up dos, however later on the hair was allowed to grow on and beyond the collar, this would be totally unacceptable. It is one of the only disappointments I have with the series.


    PS Was it a wig or extensions attached to her own hair?

    I actually didn't. ;) She had so many freakin' hairdo's that I decided to only include the Borg one in the poll because I was curious. :lol: Otherwise, I just assumed everything else is 'other' with an explanation.

    But, if you want to put the twist in, I won't stop ya! :devil:

    Wig

    You know, the unique thing about Star Trek, in general, is that it may be based on the concepts of the current military of the US, but it's not exactly the military.

    I mean Jadzia Dax never had her hair in a up do either and neither did Deanna Troi. Number One on the first Enterprise had her down. Come to think about it, Worf's hair was long and was only in a ponytail there in the later seasons of TNG and into DS9.

    I wouldn't base my expectations of approved Starfleet wear on the current military.

    I liked the short hair in Year of Hell, and I liked the pony tail.

    I always thought the short 'do in "Living Witness" was super sexy. :drool:

    Definitely season 5, though I also like the ponytail. I always hated the bun on her head. In addition to looking terrible on its own, it really made Janeway look older than she was.


    Someone should do a thread like this for Kira. She had a style per season as well IIRC, plus that thing from the pilot.

    lol A poll like that would be impossible.... Kira had a different hair style almost every episode, especially in seasons 5 and 6.... sure it was all short for the most part, but there always seemed to be something different done to it every episode.... fluffy, curly, flat, up, down, wavy, up and back, down and front... she probably was the most realistic of all the characters, in that like real life, her hair wasn't identical for months or years on end :lol:

    I like all Janeway's hairdos except the most militant versions of the bun. I voted for Season Seven, Admiral Janeway is in that season too and she looks magnificent! :techman:

    I liked them all. Janeway always gives me that special feeling.
