My husband has coached girls' soccer for years, and so the Women's World Cup has been on 24-7 here at the Ferrier house.
I enjoy watching the women's teams play as well, but one thing that has stood out in all of the games I've watched (besides the awesome plays, of course) is the cool new hairstyle many of the women's players are wearing.
Rather than going with the elastic bands of yore to keep back stray bangs, many of them have opted for a French braid, woven into a ponytail.
There's this traditional French braid, sported by a goalie in the Australia vs. Norway match-up.
And then there's another way favored by the US team, which involves French braiding the front section of hair into a sort of headband style, and pulling the rest back into a ponytail.
Want to see how to do it yourself?
