Barbara’s hair.

The magnificence that is Barbara’s hair starts off with her school teacher look.

and then later the lovely up do seen in Marco Polo. Except we can’t really ‘see’ it properly in action *goes off to cry*

Big and fab hair in the Keys of Marinus. She looks so cute.

Can’t see her hair much in The Aztecs, why is that? Oh yes because she’s a freakin’ goddess with a headdress that’s why.

She looks so elegant in this scene at the end of the Aztecs leading into the Sensorites.

After the events of Planet of Giants, Barbara’s hair clearly kept on growing when she returned to normal size. Epic bouffant happening in Dalek Invasion.

And remaining very huge in The Rescue and very round in this side profile pic. The Doctor must have a hell of a load of hairspray in the TARDIS.

Stunning hair in The Romans, she looks so gorge.

And now with added hair accessories so she can fit in at court and make everyone jealous.

She really does get some great hairstyles in the past, like her Crusade one.

In the Space Museum its back to big, bold and very round. This is the hair that Maureen O’Brien compared to a football on the commentary,

The hairstylist must have heard her because by episode four of the same serial its softer and less round. Wonder if that deadly gas had hair styling capabilities?

In The Chase she’s added a lovely hair clip to complete her look and looks absolutely radiant.

This has been an informative post about hair. Mostly we just like to gush about Jackie/Barbara.
