Keeping it long & stylish:

Scrunchie game on point
Mirabai Chanu of Manipur who lifted 202kg and won a silver medal in Weightlifting also had a bold hairstyle moment. Chanu tied her hair back with a big, bold scrunchie which was bright red in colour. Clearly, a cherry on top.
Playful hair accessory:
Gone are the days when playful hair accessories were limited only to little girls. Olympic athletes prove age is just a number when it comes to shiny clips and glittering crown-band. From Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson-Hera to Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, they all proved that flaunting hair accessories is possible even when picking up the medal.
Fiery hair colours
Speaking of fiery red hair colours, they sure set the field on fire. 100M sprinter Amya Clarke from St. Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean is seen flaunting her waist-long fiery red braids. The braids swayed as she ran.
