    We're not talking about a swaying weft of shampoo-advert-shimmering-silk here. Eve has thick, dark, wild, and wavy hair. Hair that doesn’t play by the goddamn rules – rather like Eve herself.

    And if, like me, you are one of the big, messy haired girls of this world it was like – FINALLY! Representation.

    I mean, the whole frickin’ plot of Killing Eve is driven by sexy bombshell Villanelle crushing on women with big, bushy, dark hair. First she falls for Anna:

    Then she falls for Eve: a kickass female investigator, who won’t flirt with men for secrets, doesn’t give a shit about getting dressed up, and is deemed a sex icon literally for just taking her unbrushed hair out of a ponytail???????!?!?!??!??!! Am I actually dreaming???!?

    Let’s take a moment to relive that epic scene in the hospital bathroom where Villanelle sees Eve take her hair down:

    Look at Villanelle’s eyes. That is lust.
