We all know about "The Rachel" but what about "The Edna"? Behold, the hottest signature 'dos from literary ladies.
  1. Renata Adler
    Nothing says "I will quietly ruin you through savage journalistic essays" quite like baby bangs and an epic grey braid.
  2. Susan Sontag
    The stripe that launched a thousand think-pieces.
  3. Edna St. Vincent Millay
    Her verse may be florid but she kept it simple & chic with this flapperesque bob!
  4. Toni Morrison
    She was awarded a medal of distinction... for her perfect silver locs!
  5. Vivian Gornick
    Right and tight, just like her prose.
  6. Joan Didion
    Let's call this simple style the Millay 2.0. In recent years she's added a bang for dramatic effect.
  7. Zadie Smith
    What's she better at, writing or wrapping her hair and looking like the fucking queen of literature? Her serfs are Franzen & Knausgard.
