NAME: Katrina Nare

WHO IS SHE: British actress/model/writer, who's had small roles in projects such as the TV drama Deep Cuts and the movie Way of the Monkey's Claw

HER STYLE: Normally shoulder-length curls; straightened on occasion

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Gorgeous natural curls!" a Hair Fan told us. They're loose instead of tightly-defined, and can be playful or intensely serious, depending on her mood. The fact that she often poses with them dangerously close to her eyes adds to the seriousness for us. The only protective measure seems to be some teasing at the forehead.

SUPER-HAIR?Alas, the danger has proven too strong at times. Her own Instagram feed has examples of the curliness plopping across her eyes. Yet her upcoming movie called Doom may have Hair Fans watching simply to see if her style can avoid it. [Posted 9.7.18]

NAME: Kimberly Jones

WHO IS SHE: NFL Network reporter, focusing on the "New York" football teams (we remember when that used to be an issue)

HER STYLE: Shoulder-length sidepart, usually with plenty of waves

WHY WE LIKE IT: She has years of experience, knowing how to adjust this style to the conditions of the moment - especially to turn up the hold. It can be helmet-hard during some reports, while emphasizing a soft look at other times. Wind can blow the hair back a bit, but not a lot.

SUPER-HAIR? Apparently not. When she left the YES sport channel, a blogger posted a picture of her with a bit of hair from the "off side" angled toward her eye. It appeared to be a drop - putting her on a par with the Jet and Giant disappointments of the 2017 season. But the strength of this look still is worth watching. [Posted 8.24.18]

NAME: Devan Kaney

WHO IS SHE: Host of The Day Ahead on the U.S. cable channel Newsy; formerly on-air in Boise, Idaho

HER STYLE: Long sidepart; we say it's best with waves

WHY WE LIKE IT: Her styles are natural-looking and thick enough that hungry Hair Fans might want to reach for them with a running start. But that could be misleading, because she combs section over the top and probably sprays them into firm position. The waves provide added strength, while she resorts to ear tuckbacks sparingly.

SUPER-HAIR? If she limited her public exposure to TV, we might say yes. But her own Instagram account does her in, as a couple of steamy photos have hair drooping in an eye. She blames one of them on "east coast humidity." If she solves that, her hair future is well above 100 percent. [Posted 8.12.18]

NAME: Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic

WHO IS SHE: President of Croatia

HER STYLE: Sidepart reaching a bit below the shoulders, apparently with added curl

WHY WE LIKE IT: She caught the attention of Hair Fans around the world at the FIFA World Cup final, by winning the style battle over the first lady of France. Her high-risk right side weakened only a bit in the rain, as she embraced players on the pitch after the match. She must have Super-spray to keep the swept-back side holding, even though she can use her ears for control if necessary.

SUPER-HAIR? We're right on the boundary line about this. A strip of hair was weak in post-match ceremonies, but seemed cut to allow for bangs above the right eye. Then there are those (ahem) bikini pictures, where the hair is windblown. Yet we haven't found a ahot with the hair in her eyes. So she has a narrow thumbs-up from us - and we want to see her hair next to Melania Trump's at the next NATO summit. [Posted 7.27.18]

NAME: Vassy Kapelos

WHO IS SHE: Host of Canadian cable TV news program(me) Power and Politics

HER STYLE: Currently mid-length sidepart with apparently natural wave; she's gone longer and straighter at times

WHY WE LIKE IT: While some hosts of similar U.S. shows spend all their time in the studio, she occasionally travels around Canada for stories. Wherever she goes, her styles always seem to be as sharp and well-prepared as the questions for lawmakers ought to be. While she sometimes uses the ears for protection, she seldom wears pins.

SUPER-HAIR? On the air, it seems to be - and that's very good. Trouble is, she posts a lot of off-air material on her Instagram feed. While much of it is humorous, several pictures have messy hair in her eyes. If Canada wants to recover from a disastrous Super-Hair World Cup V, it needs better "power hair" than this. [Posted 7.13.18]

NAME: Luana Munoz

WHO IS SHE: Morning TV news anchor who moved recently from Norfolk, VA to Shreveport, LA

HER STYLE: Mid-length sidepart, currently displaying plenty of curls although she's had it straighter

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Great thickness and curls," wrote a Hair Fan who suggested her. The picture posted by her current station might make you think otherwise, because the curls are relatively tight. But when they're massed (or is that mixed?) together, they probably have a lot of weighty strength. Teasing atop the forehead helps with the hold.

SUPER-HAIR? "Never in her eyes," the Hair Fan added. Oooh - the challenge is made! That may be true in Shreveport. But last year in Virginia, she posted a photo with her hair at its best.... but a strip of curl in her left eye. Too bad. But thanks for a great suggestion - and now: how does Shreveport keep attracting all these great styles? [Posted 6.29.18]

NAME: Lila Rose

WHO IS SHE: Founder/President of the anti-abortion group Live Action

HER STYLE: Medium-long with adjustable waves

WHY WE LIKE IT: Thick. Plush. Full. Add your own adjective. Her hair is total-volume, and soft-looking on top of that. Her styles can move and bounce. Yet the curl provides a measure of control, or she can tuck hair behind her ears without losing much on the "risky style" scale.

SUPER-HAIR? When she appears in set pieces and on indoor stages, she's jaw-dropping. But the thrill and drama happen when she's out in the elements - and a picture she put on Facebook of an undercover investigation seems to show a breeze pushing the hair into her eyes. So we're disappointed to say our answer is no. But while we don't get into politics here, we're glad this woman with her great hair was allowed to be born. [Posted 6.16.18]

NAME: Helena Humphrey

WHO IS SHE: Business reporter for DW television, based in Germany

HER STYLE: Medium-long sidepart, often curled at the tips

WHY WE LIKE IT: She's not afraid to take some chances in the studio with her hair. This vid-cap shows lift-teasing above the vulnerable left eye - yet there still could be a bit of tucking-back behind her ear for security. She's also appeared with a full tuck-back and none at all; the look can vary from day to day.

SUPER-HAIR? The first time we saw her, she definitely had us watching - but we fear we saw a fully-open left side droop into her eye at one point. So our answer is a sad no. But would we watch her hair in action again? Absolutely yes. CNBC and Fox Business reporters with strong styles may have a European rival. [Posted 6.1.18]

NAME: Tawny Newsome

WHO IS SHE: Comic and singer in the band Four Lost Souls; appearing in TV series such as Nobodies and the podcast Yo, Is This Racist?

HER STYLE: Sideparted curls which she's taken very long (and even straight) at times; our picture from the podcast is on the short side for her

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Good natural curls," a Hair Fan told us. We say amen to that. At their best, they look soft and full enough to use as a pillow - yet strong enough to bounce back time after time, and even bounce a little during head turns to tempt you to try it.

SUPER-HAIR? This is a split decision. She's had longer "dreadlock looks" that drop with ease. Buyt if she sticks to styles like the picture we're posting, we think she has it. The curls are likely to last a long time, and she seems to know how to keep them out of her eyes. We hope she keeps things natural, because we're naturally attracted to it. [Posted 5.18.18]

NAME: Catriona Gray

WHO IS SHE: Model born in Australia; former Miss World Phillippines; current Miss Universe Philippines 2018

HER STYLE: Long sidepart; we think at its best with added wave

WHY WE LIKE IT: She was offered to represent the Philippines in Super-Hair World Cup V, and we can understand why. She's developed a great mass of hair, which she turns up (as in volume) for big occasions. When she does, countless Hair Fans would want to get their hands all over it.

SUPER-HAIR? Her Instagram account has the answer - and it's no. Several posed photos show hair in her eyes. But had she been born in the Philippines, we think she could have represented that country in our Cup well. Those beauty contests have weak standards, don't they? [Posted 5.5.18]

NAME: Inga Volkosh

WHO IS SHE: Model born in Russia, now based in Miami

HER STYLE: "Rapunzel" long, to borrow from her Instagram account, reaching to her knees; usually straight, but that can be adjusted

WHY WE LIKE IT: She's one of many women with extremely long hair being offered by Hair Fans these days. She stands out to us because she seems to try hard to keep it out of her eyes. That means serious combing back at the crown, plus plenty of leaning which shows off the style without putting it at high risk.

SUPER-HAIR? More than one of her videos left us asking, "How will her hair escape this one?" - yet it did. But she's also posted pictures where a few strands cover an eye. So while she's great, our answer is no. She was offered to us for Super-Hair World Cup V, yet her native Russia did not qualify for that event. If she had been nominated, maybe that would have been different. [Posted 4.21.18]

NAME: Sofia Ojeda

WHO IS SHE: TV journalist in Houston

HER STYLE: Sidepart reaching a bit below the shoulders, regularly in "beach waves"

WHY WE LIKE IT: She takes subtle steps to keep this style strong. A bit of over-the-top teasing near the part line (undoubtedly supported with spray) is one method. Well-disguised tucking back of a tiny strip of hair is another.

SUPER-HAIR? When she's anchoring, it can be. When she's out in the elements reporting, it's sadly not. Storm coverage from 2017 confirmed fierce wind could blow hair into her eyes. But in a city with a lot of great hairstyles and often-challenging weather, we think she'd be a top contender in many tournaments. [Posted 4.7.18]

NAME: Jennifer Ketchmark

WHO IS SHE: TV weathercaster in Cincinnati

HER STYLE: We prefer the website photo's look, a shoulder-length sidepart with plenty of waves; she's had straighter styles as well

WHY WE LIKE IT: Strong waves like these at 5:00 a.m. will get many Hair Fans out of bed early. The overall style may bounce a bit, but the curl seems to stay strong all morning long.

SUPER-HAIR? This is one of those cases where the wave makes it "Super," but she's very vulnerable without it. One Facebook forecast with the hair straight nearly collapsed on-camera several times. So can we do what the National Weather Service does - and put her chances of Super-Hair at 40 percent? [Posted 3.24.18]

NAME: Ayesha Billimoria

WHO IS SHE: Sprinter and fitness trainer based in Mumbai, India

HER STYLE: A Hair Fan recommended this classic helmet bob; other pictures have shown a more sideswept look

WHY WE LIKE IT: "Soft and full," wrote the Hair Fan who suggested her, along with "awesome bangs." The recommended photo from India's Elle magazine shows the forehead solidly covered (our preference for bangs), yet long enough on her right side to be vulnerable. Could a crosswind push the hair into her eye? That's the stuff of drama for Hair Fans.

SUPER-HAIR? We're saying yes. Wind might blow this cut around, but we haven't found a picture where it's dropped in her eyes. That's precise cutting, which is critical for this kind of style. She's known as "FitGirl" in India, and we'd love to take on perfect hair like this - even though she'd undoubtedly outrun us, and probably outfight us if we caught her. [Posted 3.10.18]

NAME: Amanda Balionis

WHO IS SHE: Veteran golf reporter who's joined the CBS Sports team this year

HER STYLE: Mid-length with waves/curls

WHY WE LIKE IT: Not many female golf reporters appear with their hair unpinned. She's doing it, but in a somewhat protected environment - interviewing players after their rounds, next to a large video screen. The curl and tuck-backs behind the ears keep the hair in great shape.

SUPER-HAIR? She survived an "instant classic" moment when birds flew their way into a third-round interview in Los Angeles. We've found no other serious threats, so she makes the cut with us. Kelly Tilghman finally may have met her "golf hair" match. [Posted 2.23.18]

NAME: Clara Lago

WHO IS SHE: Actress from Spain, currently appearing in the movie The Commuter

HER STYLE: We spotted her on Univision with a chin-length cut and light bangs (she's better known for longer and darker styles)

WHY WE LIKE IT: This style looks like it's ready for both an action drama and a night on the town. It reminds us of "beach waves" trimmed short, then sprayed (sometimes round-brushed) into place. The bangs give her room to manuever. But they're not cut too deeply, which increases the risk factor.

SUPER-HAIR? "Lo siento" - as in sorry. The longer styles dropped in movie scenes. And even this short cut dropped in her eyes, in a friendly photoshoot with a dog. But we'd want to linger on her new look for a long time. And if her U.S. film debut is successful, that could happen. [Posted 2.9.18]

NAME: Elena Urioste

WHO IS SHE: Concert violinist, who performs with leading classical orchestras

HER STYLE: Mid-length sidepart with thick waves

WHY WE LIKE IT: If she wears it this way when performing, this is high-pitched drama for Hair Fans. We dream of this style flexing and bouncing during a dramatic concerto. Both hands are occupied, so they can't protect her hair - but she teases it on top and probably sprays it all around for safety. Alas, she seems to pin it up often on stage.

SUPER-HAIR? Her website shows plenty of enticing photos, with her hair almost daring you to approach it. The style looks mussable and defeatable - but we found no evidence of that happening. So she gets the upbest from us, with encouragement to wear it down on concert night. [Posted 1.26.18]

NAME: Denise Doornebosch

WHO IS SHE: Twitch star who's become a co-host of the Dutch video game talk show Big Red Lazor, seen on TBD in the USA

HER STYLE: She mixes them up, but we noticed her with a medium-long center part

WHY WE LIKE IT: Our vid-cap was from our first sight of this woman, and she gave us a flashback to someone we featured in a 2002 Style Profile. Her hair is thick enough to hide sections tucked behind the ears, and strong enough that the sections stick there. She could be "Glenda's" twin, and be quite a match in a Super-Hair War.

SUPER-HAIR? She sadly undid the tuck-back on-camera during the program we watched, but stopped short of letting her hair drop in her eyes. She's also clever enough to use a look-alike emoji of herself online, instead of posting a lot of selfies. So we say she has it, unless Euro-Hair Fans tell us otherwise. They look like Big Reddish Locks to us. [Posted 1.11.18]
