Top Ten Tresses

Our current Top Ten styles in the world were last ranked by Hair Fans in a Cutting-Edge Hair News poll 10-18 August. Current as of 17 December 14:

#1 - SARA WALSH. Her long waves are as perfectly-prepared and jaw-dropping as they come at ESPN. And she has a great hair history, as she once was City League champion in Nashville. Erin who?!?

#2 - MICHELLE ASSELIN. A Fresno, California doctor and dentist who reached the Super-Hair Wars semifinals, then gained two Crown Awards nominations. Pictures of her are scarce, but her lengthy blonde look is popular enough to gain a Gold Award.

#3 - LORI ROTHMAN. The Fox Business Network anchor has left "Imus in the Morning." But her thick wavy hair still deserves a Gold Award for one year in the Top Ten - as long as she doesn't get too woozy as a guest on "Red Eye."

#4 - YELENA AKHTIORSKAYA. A Ukraine native whose first novel Panic In a Suitcase has good reviews, but modest sales. Her long loose curls have excellent reviews among Hair Fans, who made her a Super-Hair Wars undefeated champion.

#5 - SUE BIRD. A WNBA champion in Seattle, an MVP in the Cup of Russia and an Olympic gold medalist, teammates claim her real secret to popularity is straight and shiny long hair. She's now earned a four-year Triple Platinum Award, and her strong ranking this year kept stupefying critics. (Courtesy SNY)

#7 - JEANETTE BORHYOVA. An economics student who became Miss Slovak Republic 2013 somehow did not advance past the first cut at Miss Universe. But her strong blonde waves have Hair Fans awestruck, as she dominated a group in Super-Hair World Cup IV and reached the finals. (Was #6)

#6 - MARA SCHIAVOCAMPO. The "digital journalist" is showing signs of returning to the soft mid-length styles that made her a Hair Fan star at NBC. She's made an impressive transition to ABC, deserving of a Double Platinum Award for three years in the Top Ten. (Was #7)

#8 - OLIVIA STERNS. She not only reports for Bloomberg News, she lets her long wavy hair dance in the wind at times. Talk about making interest rate discussions sexy. (Was #9)

#9 - KARA SEWELL. A Cincinnati news anchor whose short styles might be pushed a little, but refuse to surrender. If she could survive years of Texas and Kansas winds, she belongs here.

#10 - MARIE HARF. If you're wondering why some world leaders are jealous of the U.S., perhaps they're monitoring the State Department briefings she conducts. We consider her the better half of perhaps the strongest hair "tag team" in the history of diplomacy.

WHO'S NEW: Kara Sewell (#9).

WHO'S OUT: Brianna Keilar (#8).

Top Five Men's Styles: (Alphabetical order)

RUSSELL BRAND. Now missing at three consecutive Oscars after a strong showing in 2011. At least he's not prone to change his color, compared with Katy Perry. (Courtesy Zimbio)

DAVID GREGORY. We thought he brought the most interesting head of men's hair in journalism to Meet the Press. But NBC has dumped him, and he's now in "Lowery limbo."

JOHN KERRY. The longtime Senator who claimed his hair was better during a Presidential campaign is now U.S. Secretary of State. Is it just us, or was he blonder on his first major trip overseas?

BELLO NOCK. Gel plus hairspray plus blowdrying equals a seven-inch high style that's held through stunt after stunt with the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey circus, and even his own. We challenge any woman on this list to outlast him -- and we want to be there to see it.

TROY POLAMALU. Don't cut your hair for years, and you might match the style of this Pittsburgh Steeler all-star. There's a million-dollar insurance contract on his hair -- so a very short snip for U.S. veterans became a moment of national drama.

WHO'S NEW: No changes.


NOTE: This listing is updated twice per month. Nominations are always welcome; challenges to the names on this list will be considered based on photographic evidence submitted to the Web Site Manager.
