Set the wayback machine to Action Comics 273. Supergirl was still staying in the orphanage where Superman had put her, and still wearing the blue frock that looked like it had started life as a cheerleader costume. The sartorial madness of 70's era Supergirl was still a decade in the future. In the straitlaced world of 1961 comics, when a heroine needed a makeover, they didn't go to the tailor, their alter ego went to the hairdresser. And they did it by asking the readers to participate in a poll.

My how daring Linda Lee was - still three whole years away from going off to college, but she's already wearing college hairstyles. It's a good thing her boyfriends tend to be aliens or mermen - far less chance of gossip getting back to her classmates at Midvale High.

There were also quite a few write-in votes for the "Jason Todd dies" haircut, but they didn't really know what that would look like.

I'd have voted for Kitten Cut. My second fave is Contempo Cut. Of course, those have the less votes. :P

Lori haircut, as in Superman's aquatic girlfriend? Now THAT would raise an eyebrow from me!

She interacted with Lori quite a bit, and had a thing with a merman friend of her's, Jerro... so I could see her imitating Lori's style.

I liked Cuddle bun, and Contempo personally.

The Contempo Cut got the least amount of votes? That's the one I would've gone for!

Guess it was just too ahead of its time. Ironically.

Ditto here, but really any of them would be fine as long as they replaced the pigtails look. Rescuing disaster victims is okay, but I don't want Supergirl to be falling in love with any pilot-horticulturists after she pulls them from crashed planes in the swamp.

Me three - it's adorable!

Though didn't the Legion of Super-Heroes need to fight Contempo?

I like the kitten cut, but I'm glad Selina ended up using it instead.
