High fashion it's not,
but here's what's hot
T he women at Oklahoma State are
fit to be tied these days. Hair bows,
which have come and gone at some
schools, have now lassoed the Cow-
girls. The fripperies are especially
fashionable among sorority members, who
are sometimes known as bowheads. "I was
sitting at a meeting the other day, and I
noticed every single girl had something in
her hair," marvels bow believer Polly Ba-
sore, a junior majoring in Russian, who has
recently branched out into a sterling-silver
bow necklace, earrings and matching ring.
There are varying views, however, of the
Bow Ideal. This has led to the developing
science of bowciology. To Basore, position is
all: "The girls who wear bows on top of their
heads are airheads. The other girls wear
DOUG HOKE them at the nape of their necks. The lower
Bows arts: A Cowgirl shows her stuff you wear them, the cooler you are." Others
find significance in fabric or color. "I can't

Joan Smith, a senior majoring in French
and journalism. "I hate the red and purple
ones-anything that's not primary colors."
(Red is a primary color, of course, but may-
be it's the principle of the thing.) And size
also counts, says Richard Mize, a journal-
ism senior. "I prefer medium-size bows. I
don't like the ones that a gust of wind could
pick up and fly the girl away." Spoken like
a truly chivalrous beau.

Bolo high: You may still think of bolos-if
you think of them at all-as those stringy
neckties that folks wear at the Grand Ole
Opry. But Bruce Springsteen knows bet-
ter: he's sporting one on the cover of his
new album. And they're way ahead of The
Boss, haberdashery-wise, at the Universi-
ty of Washington in Seattle, where bolos
have been blooming since last fall. "It's a
way that I can dress up without being
traditional," says Jim Michael, a junior,
who owns three of the skinny cravats.
