Great news on the hair front. Four years ago, the players at the Women’s World Cup were mostly wearing their hair short or in sensible ponytails. Despite some nice individual efforts, I didn’t have enough people to make a proper all-star team of hairdos. This year, however, enough people are watching the Women’s World Cup all over the world that it gives the women the same incentive to go crazy with their hair as the men have for their World Cup. (Here’s my all-hair post from last year’s tournament.) Therefore, I present the coolest, weirdest, most eye-catching hairdos from this year’s World Cup.
DF: Kadeisha Buchanan (Canada)
Stylish and patriotic. I love it!
DF: Angela Clavijo (Colombia)
Continuing with the patriotic colors here. I’d have been more impressed if she’d dyed it with streaks for all the Colombian flag’s colors.
