The current love of Neanderthals gets out of hand sometimes. This excellent reconstruction of a pretty Neanderthal girl has hair a rock star would be proud of. Rather than parted and fluffed, Neanderthal hair was probably matted, greased, painted, hacked short or some combination of these. Are we even sure it grew continuously? or was it more like fur?
