Meryl Davis. Not all the time, but she has gorgeous hair and knows how to show it.

The mullet king :ROFLMAO:


In all seriousness, I'm a big fan of the simple hairstyles, my pet peeve is some of the ladies with the longer hair just doing a ponytail where they have a long ponytail whipping around during spins/jumps

Same here, I don't like ponytails and I would love for some of the skaters to see them in a bun. I like it when the skaters put some hair accessories on (such as Satoko's "Planets" LP:
I also like the thing that Yuna has on this program (
) but I don't know its name!
For younger skaters hair like this are fun if they go well with the program:
and
Also I love those hairstyles on Anna Shcherbakova :

Now that Medvedeva has returned to Eteri, do you think we’ll see a return of the classic Medvedeva hairstyle?

Which one have been your favorites ?
I admire Aljona Kostornaya hairstyle...always so classy and I really do not understand how she is doing it, that it stays during the program.

At first I thought it was a hairstyle similar to Evgenia Medvedeva's during her first few senior seasons, where one takes hair, and rolls it, but after finding a photo in high enough resolution, it looks like she has a very neat and tight braid. French braid, maybe? At any rate, my guess is that it stays up because she tensions the braid correctly, plus there are probably a lot of hair pins in the bun!

Now I want to spend some time in front of a mirror, trying to replicate the look, to work out how exactly she makes that braid!
