I think Kevin Reynold's hair has been extremely effective, as evidenced by the fact that not a single person on this thread has commented on his large, oddly shaped nose.

Plushenko's nose is large and oddly shaped, too. But that's where the resemblance ends. :P

Well, Tarasova may have forced him to dress like a tree, but at least his hair was controlled. Imagine his current hairdo on top of that horrific costume :eek:

Well, er, yes :slinkaway

Sometimes one just has to look for something positive to say, you know? :lol:

You know I kind of feel bad for picking on him about his hair. Because one of the things that made me start watching Adam Rippon was an interview where he said he really prefers his hair curly but his coach at the time always required him to straighten it. As a curly haired person, I hate that "straighten it" is the magical answer. So I don't really like the idea of a coach prescribing a hair style of any sort.

But Reynold's looks ridiculous- and it is clear he is styling it that way, he doesn't just have out of control hair that can't be tamed. He apparently has curly hair based on this picture: http://tracings.net/photos/2006cdns/002-reynolds.jpg
Though I do think I like the straight look on him- just not the insane straight look.

I think he looks much better with his hair curly if he keeps it short enough, like in this (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2f/Kevin_Reynolds_2005_Croatia_Cup.jpg) picture.

Speaking of big noses, during the post-FD interview at TEB, I couldn't help but think of Pinnochio when Scott Moir was being interviewed. The greased down, straightened hair style didn't help matters; it only made the comparisons to the fabled wooden boy with the long nose more prevalent. :slinkaway

My opinion: I can't take Kevin seriously because of his ridiculous hair. I know I SHOULDN'T feel like that, but I do. To me, it greatly distracts from anything good he may do on the ice--I have a hard time looking at him. And I'm aware that others may not feel the same.

It's sad, because I believe he's a huge talent. If he actually gets all that jumping ability under control--wow.

I think male-Rachael is unlucky that he skates for a country that recently produced Buttle and Chan.

If he skated for some obskure Euro or Asian country, no one would say anything about his poor skating and unflattering looks as long as he continued to land those quads.

I'm pretty sure I'd feel the same way about his hair no matter where he was from... ;)

I don't think Kevin is a "poor" skater. (He was skating injured last year, and was ill at TEB this year). He's had a bad "rap". I also think people make too much of his looks and his hair. He seems like a nice person, and doesn't deserve all this negativity directed towards him. :(.

Kevin have a lot off fans. Did you saw this big bunners at TEB? One girl, who was in Paris, said me - Kevin had even more bunners, then Patrick

There's no way a Brian Orser or a Frank Carroll would allow one of their students out on the ice looking like that, and Joanne McLeod shouldn't be letting Kevin do it either. A better coach would have dealt with this issue long ago.

I guess as i was typing my initial thread, the question that came into examination is the idea of a coash "letting" a skater look this way or that. What can you really do if a skater who technically has you on payroll wants it his way? Technically, Kevin's coaches are on HIS payroll. I know that in a lot of coach/student relationships, the coach almost has absolute say in matters or at least collaborative/suggestive input on decisions of presentation but if Kevin really wants it what can a coach really do?

With that being said, i do have a first mind to think that Joanne could tell him to cut that S$#T off...

Here is Kevin in 2008 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdPssbRZJYA&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PLF105561443504289 - clearly he is capable of a neater looking hairstyle. He must either like the way it looks now or not care.

in this case, the hair would have went well with those rediculous sleeves :rolleyes:

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH @ TREE!!! Tarasova perpetuates the ugliest costumes in the world of figure skating ever.

Well, a skater pays a coach to tell them what to do. If that's not going to be the case, then why bother to pay one at all? And skaters should listen to their coachs' advice on packaging. A lot of these coaches have been around and know the politiks of it all and how things generally work.

I wondered if Kevin had naturally curly hair, basically because his hair has so much body. A thinner haired person wouldn't be able to maintain that hairstyle with all of that whipping around in the air. I think the pictures of him with curly hair look great. I wish he would go back to his natural style.

Kevin has naturally curly hair that any woman (myself included) would envy. Obviously, he doesn't like it, and that's his prerogative AFAIAC. He wore his hair "au naturale" once (I believe) last year and there were complaints and jokes about that too........What do people want?..........for him to get buzzed?
