Olympic high jump silver medallist Brigetta Barrett is on a personal hair journey, after cutting it all out. Just for SPIKES, she’s picked out her three favourite athlete hairdos…
Olympic 400m and 4x400m champion
Sanya has stunning hair. She has her own hair company and business with her sister in which they sell and cut hair. I remember watching her at the Olympics cut and style her hair and it was just amazing. She did Bianca Knight’s hair ahead of the women’s 4x100m.
2011 world 400m hurdles semi-finalist
We’ve gone on the same hair journey together and we make the same videos, too. We both went natural, cut our hair at the same time and are all growing it back. We’ve established a close friendship because of our hair.
Olympic 110m champion and world record holder
I have to have a man in my top three and that has to be Aries Merritt. He wears braids a lot of times, he gets his hair braided a lot. He’s got beautiful hair. I heard he has a different hair cut for every competition.
