The Olympics in Rio – if ever there’s a time to take a fashion risk, isn’t it there, now?
Cue Charlotte-based swimmer Ryan Lochte’s significant lock change: People have called it gray, but he deems it “#lightblue” – though the Atlanta stylist who did it dubs it “Lochte Blue.”
That news has been all over – compelling Cosmopolitan’s website to worry: “Did Ryan Lochte Just Ruin His Hotness?” and GQ.com to answer: “As if the forthcoming Rio summer Olympics weren't disastrous enough (no, really), now 11-time Olympic medalist, and ultimate sports bro, Ryan Lochte debuted a brand new hair style on Instagram yesterday.”
