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]
