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? Not knocking Neanderthal coiffures. Cro Magnon hair was probably distastefully unmodern as well.

Reminds me of Shakira :-) Neanderthal Woman. She looks quite beautiful, I can see why Cro-Magnon men might have taken a neanderthal woman as a mate and had children, and vice versa. This doesn't offend me and the genetic evidence is real.
