Great moments in Bernie Sanders’s hair

Bernie Sanders has amazing hair. The independent senator from Vermont will announce his presidential campaign Thursday, which means we'll be seeing a lot more of it in the coming months, and we should celebrate that.

Here are some great moments in Bernie Sanders's hair:

When it mostly kept it together but still poked out a little bit

When it showed it was as independent as Sander's party affiliation

When it gracefully flowed in the Washington air

When it glowed in the light of day like a halo

When it puffed itself out like a glorious mane

When it took a stand, much like Sanders's eight-hour filibuster against a tax-cut bill
