Top Ten Tresses

Our Top Ten styles in the world currently reflect the rankings of Hair Fans in a Cutting-Edge Hair News poll. Current as of 20 August 14:

#1 (TIE) - LORI ROTHMAN. Her thick wavy hair is having an impact at Fox Business Network. After earning a Gold Award for one year in the Top Ten, she's enduring occasional challenges from Don Imus - and defended the top spot well.

#1 (TIE) - SARA WALSH. Her long waves are as perfectly-prepared and jaw-dropping as they come at ESPN. And her hair resume includes time as City League champion in Nashville. She calls this ranking on Twitter the "best day of my life." (Was #6)

#3 (TIE) - MICHELLE ASSELIN. A Fresno, California doctor and dentist took Super-Hair Wars by storm, defeating a Top Ten member head-to-head on the way to undefeated status and a close loss in the semifinals. Her thick long blonde hair earned her two Crown Award nominations.

#3 (TIE) - 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 earned a three-year Double Platinum Award, and continues to defy the hair critics. (Was #9; courtesy SNY)

#3 (TIE) - JEANETTE BORHYOVA. An economics student who became Miss Slovak Republic 2013, she 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 #8)

#3 (TIE) - JODY LOWERY. Even at messy-looking moments, she's the most outstanding example of why Shreveport, Louisiana is a hidden hotbed for Super-Hair. This TV news anchor won a Crown Award this year. (Was #5)

#7 (TIE) - 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)

#7 (TIE) - BRIANNA KEILAR. Through a wide range of hair lengths and a variety of Washington assignments, CNN's "Senior Political Correspondent" has kept her styles attractive and very strong for years. Yet a very narrow escape with the "Marine One" helicopter may have our voters skeptical. (Courtesy Hi-Def News Caps)

#7 (TIE) - SUSIE SANTO. She left Hollywood entertainment board rooms for her home state, to become President and CEO of a Kansas Visitor's Bureau. Her big drop here seems like a Wichita shocker. (Was #2)

#7 (TIE) - MARA SCHIAVOCAMPO. The "digital journalist" morphed from soft mid-length styles to a high-risk eye-scraping bob, which has held after moving from NBC to ABC. She's earned a Double Platinum Award for three years in the Top Ten. (Was #4)

WHO'S NEW: No changes.

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. Apparently great men's hair isn't enough for Sunday talk show viewers, as he's been fired from NBC's Meet the Press. He hangs around here for now, but his future is clearly in doubt.

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.
