We all know about "The Rachel" but what about "The Edna"? Behold, the hottest signature 'dos from literary ladies.
  1. Renata Adler
    Bb2d90d3 3807 4ed8 a96a 51e771a706c5
    Nothing says "I will quietly ruin you through savage journalistic essays" quite like baby bangs and an epic grey braid.
  2. Susan Sontag
    Eb3fee2b f324 4f2d 96a2 b06c82553285
    The stripe that launched a thousand think-pieces.
  3. Edna St. Vincent Millay
    86e53e8f 0e96 4ff5 8ba3 cbc2b7a1acef
    Her verse may be florid but she kept it simple & chic with this flapperesque bob!
  4. Toni Morrison
    4ecfb93d 601c 445d b89c 37cf5abac4c5
    She was awarded a medal of distinction... for her perfect silver locs!
  5. Vivian Gornick
    E56149ee c1ef 4763 80be c7f8657e3fed
    Right and tight, just like her prose.
  6. Joan Didion
    2a12da29 7c8f 47c9 9c20 f502c16f32d3
    Let's call this simple style the Millay 2.0. In recent years she's added a bang for dramatic effect.
  7. Zadie Smith
    Ba59b488 5b49 4357 8e5b b1887cc94463
    What's she better at, writing or wrapping her hair and looking like the fucking queen of literature? Her serfs are Franzen & Knausgard.
