Hairstyles of the Astronauts

Weightlessness does wonders for your ‘do. Vote on your favorite zero-g look!


Inspired by our colleagues over at Smithsonian, who aim to answer the burning question “Who Had the Best Civil War Facial Hair,” we decided to run our own contest: Who Has the Worst Zero-Gravity Hair?”

Every day is a bad hair day in space, or a good one depending on your aesthetic. Vote below to tell us which of the astronauts in the gallery has the most out-of-this-world hairdo. Pictured: Karen Nyberg on the space station during the STS-124 mission in 2008.
