Subject: I can’t identify this bug

This bug was in my friend’s hair and I must know what it is. Is it some type of weevil?
This is indeed an Acorn Weevil or Nut Weevil in the genus Curculio. Finding it in your friend’s hair seems purely coincidental. According to BugGuide: “Female uses her long snout for boring into nuts/acorns, and deposits eggs there. Larvae feed inside the acorn/nut and emerge to pupate in the soil.”
