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 14. Current as of 22 January 15:

#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 - 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." (Was #3)

#3 - MICHELLE ASSELIN. A Fresno, California doctor and dentist who reached the 2013 Super-Hair Wars semifinals, then followed that up with two Crown Awards nominations. Pictures of her are scarce, but her lengthy blonde look is popular enough to gain a Gold Award. (Was #2)

#4 - 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 perhaps that long-hidden sister “Summer” in TV ads is persuading her to soften her styles. (Courtesy SNY)

#5 - OLIVIA STERNS. She not only reports for Bloomberg News, she lets her long wavy hair dance in the wind at times. She's the only Top Ten member to receive a Crown Award nomination this year – and she has two.

#6 - MARA SCHIAVOCAMPO. The "digital journalist" is returning to soft mid-length styles at ABC, along the lines of what caught our eye at NBC. She's deserving of a Double Platinum Award for three years in the Top Ten. And we were so focused on her hair that we never noticed she lost 90 pounds.

#7 - 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. (Was #9)

#8 - 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. (Was #10)

#9 – NASIM PEDRAD. After years of being funny on Saturday Night Live, this comic's thick long hair is getting more star billing on Fox's Mulaney – and a Crown Award winning “newcomer” is now a skilled veteran who's nominated again this year.

#10 - YELENA AKHTIORSKAYA. A Ukraine native whose first novel Panic In a Suitcase has good reviews, but modest sales. Her long loose curls made her a Super-Hair Wars undefeated champion – but she surprisingly crashed in the playoffs, and was passed over for Crown Award nominations. (Was #7)

WHO'S NEW: Nasim Pedrad (#9).

WHO'S OUT: Jeanette Borhyova (#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 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.
