The Olympics are taking over and you can either embrace or turn into a hobbit and hide somewhere until their over. While everyone is ogling over gold medals, beauty-wise the focus has been on competitive friendly hair. The USA women's gymnastics team has done their country proud by taking home the gold for their (back)flippin' amazing routines and not surprisingly their hairstyles have been getting some attention...for a lack of style. Ready for competition, the fierce five donned knotted, slicked back hair do's. Something that is practical, yet stylish. Critiques think they should've opted for something more flashy. Given Russian gymnasts rocked glitzy glitter hairspray in their locks. However, they also came in second with a score of 178.530 overall. Our champions soared much higher with a 183.596; rounding out the winner's circle was Romania with a score of 176.414.
