    Is anyone interested in a Favorite Hair Contest? We did a Favorite Facial Hair contest last year. Henry S. Hays won by a... well, he won by a very slim margin over John S. Green.

    New members, I will post eight groups of eight photos. You pick your favorite of each of the eight groups then arrange them in the order you think they will place in the contest.

    I just need permission from Mike or Ami. (Last year a $25 Amazon gift certificate was awarded the winner. We can probably do the same this year.)

    Could you do two separate contests, @Mike Serpa, one with men's hairstyles and one with women's?

    Yes, ma'am!
    Eight women. One in each bracket. One bracket will have a photo of the wife and a photo of the husband!
    No. It's difficult to find photos of women without hair coverings. Also, I'm using photos only from the Library of Congress. This allows the photos to be of generally the same quality and makes finding photos easier for me.

    I'll probably use only 32 photos instead of 64.

    Sounds like fun...!

    You might consider accepting candidate nominations from CWT members for one bracket, call it the "12th man" bracket. There are a lot of good private images out there that may be excluded from your population otherwise, but up to you of course...

    I don't really know if the gift card is necessary, but I'll ask mike, what he thinks.

    I've been very busy lately and will be very busy for the next several months. I'm using photos I already have to make it easier.

    Update. I have picked out 32 photos. I kept changing them out. Replacing one with another. Finally said 'enough' and will go with what I have. All photos from the Library of Congress that are on my computer. Eight women, eight CSA and sixteen USA.

    Gotta get them ready. Still some weeks away. Eight groups of four entrants. One woman, one CSA and two USA in each of the eight groups. This will be similar to the Favorite Facial Hair Contest of 2015 but with half the entrants. I will post more later for new CWT members. For an idea about how this works look at some threads at this link -

    Thanks for being patient!
