OK so the Olympics are coming did you know there is one for Hair styling too.

Competitive Hairstyling

Who knew apparently not well documented according to Julia Rubin’s article on racked.com.  The hairstylists are evaluated on things like speed and skills. Take a look at Julia’s insider view of this little known competitive sport.  Some of the earliest competitions go back to 1947 in Paris.  In recent competition the USA team withdrew do to concerns with proximity to North Korea. Again this is way bigger than I ever thought. Enjoy the read.


The history of the world is one of competition. Evolution has long been thought to be driven by it. Competition for survival, for land, for resources, for mates — humans have engaged in these pursuits for millions of years.
