Another sartorial query

Ethan's got the jeans question covered, but surprisingly, no one has asked about hair. Till now.

So far, I've been going with the same conservative part that worked at the law firm. (See the evidence here -- it's not a particularly good picture, but you get the idea). My co-bloggers seem to be going with conservative cuts as well -- see, e.g., Dave and Dan.

I'm wondering if a law prof shouldn't try to shake things up a little. Perhaps a mullet is in order? Dreadlocks, maybe, or the more up-to-date cornrows? A bald pate? A combover? Multiple colors? The possibilities are endless!

Plus, I just read in The Paper of Record that mohawks are officially cute. They're mainstream, too, apparently. (That allows me to add a great new joke to my stand-up routine: "How is a mohawk different from Janice Rogers Brown?")

So where are all the law professors with mohawks? This is a trend just waiting to be set. I suspect that, with enough peer pressure positive encouragement, we might even be able to convince our venerated blog-master to adopt this (very mainstream!) look.

So come on, readers, and let's offer encouragement. Dan, we think you'd look great in a mohawk. Your students would adore you, and they'd even pay attention in class. Costs can be defrayed -- if you agree to the cut, I'll personally buy you a can of hair spray. I suspect that we can get Dave to buy you one too.

Ten points to any of our readers who can put together a photoshopped picture of Mohawk Dan.

I'll pay for the cut!

OK, what IS the difference between Janice Rogers Brown and a mohawk?

The mohawk is mainstream...
