Pool Noodle Hair Scafolding

Hair fashion support
  [vote for,

I have a picture of myself trying to be crazy looking in the 1990s with a pool noodle tied in my hair. Looking back from my present relatively hairless perspective, I can say that the pool noodle did a remarkably good job of making all the hair I had back then buoyant. The pool noodle was tied in a simple knot and the cross part sent my hair flying skyward.

It made me think that there should be pool noodle material knots specifically made for this purpose, with different shapes for different fashions.

       There is some kind of rollers (curlers) made of pool noodle stuff, but more important, please post said picture of yourself!

       It looks like I even have some kind of cross on my forehead. Maybe it was Ash Wednesday.
JesusHChrist, Jun 16 2014

       Thank you! That is very awesome. I'm bunning you!+

       Yup, just cause of the link I'll bun this. Way to go Jesus. But then if you are Jesus, can't you make your hair behave anyway? Gosh, one would hope so. My salvation is in your hands and you're worried about your hair? Wow.
blissmiss, Jun 16 2014

       No I'm not that kind of Jesus. Salvation shmalvation, I can't even get my hair to go straight.

       The pool noodles I was picturing are about three inches thick and four feet long...
I had to wonder just how much hair you had anyway.

       I was hoping you could boil them in water and eat them when you are done with them. With a little butter and Tarragon. Yummy.

       What [2 Fries] said! That is why I needed a pic. We float on pool noodles.

       Miniature pool noodles? The structures I was imagining could involve things like a cone with lots of holes in it that would act like putting lots of up-ponytails on a head, or like up-dreadlocks. Just made out of the same material as pool noodles. I imagine with 3d printing that someone is already doing something like this. I saw some crazy 3d printed hats the other day. It could make possible the mathematical styling if hair, so parabolic fans etc.

       That is a small pool noodle. People really throw that in the pool? I would think it would clog the filter.   

       But yes: hair. A problem I have with pool noodles as personal adornments is their prosaicity. I envision a bilayer noodle with an interior and exterior layer. The thin exterior layer has sigils carved out, revealing the interior different color. One could then bend the noodle into a Sign of Solomon. Noodles could be carved to look like Book of Kells beasts, which are known to love being wrapped in knots.
