So Who Pulls off the Long Haired Bandana Look Best?

Frankly, I hate this look.
So for me, the question is "who looks less disgusting".

Regardless, another important matter that MUST be settled!

Alright, I only saw Corretja do it a couple times.

But he makes my list by virtue of managing to do it without looking totally dense.

Mark P, somehow manages to look ugly doing it.

Ditto, Thomas Enqvist and Albert Portas.

Magnus Norman just keeps letting his looks go for some reason - it's hard to watch.

Moya and Federer always do this - no comment ;)

I'd have to get it to Roger, of those you have listed. I think Guga also wears it well. :)

does anyone remember Pat Cash or David Wheaton

Cash with his chessboard on his head
Wheaton with his stars and stripes

then Greg decided to wear a Brit one when he switched over to GB and he looked a right plonker

Federer looks the best in a bandana IMO, Moya doesn't look bad either neither does Portas, Enqvist, Mark, Magnus etc I like bandanas :). Don't like Corretja's though

11-06-2002, 04:16 PM
LOL @ Greg and plonker!

I tried to leave past players out of it - then the list would have gone forever :o

And yes, I forgot Guga, sadly.

Originally I forgot Moya too, so i made it again lol.

with all due respect Becca, this poll is quite stupid. there's nothing wrong with this look. many many players use it. in fact, i think all tennis players should use it because it's very practical and quite becoming IMHO. ;) ;)

Chloe le Bopper
11-10-2002, 08:42 AM
I forgot to add the "your moron' option to this poll ;)

And I know it was stupid, that was kind of the point ;)

As for it being quite becoming - heh - there is no accounting for taste :p

Sjengster
07-23-2003, 09:37 PM
Well, it does suit some people more than others - Federer I think is the only person who carries it off well, if only because he'd look more ridiculous if he wore it any other way. On the other hand, Fish's neatly regimented heabands and Moya's scruffy look are nothing to get excited about.

Leo

He wears headbands/bandanas?

Chloe le Bopper
07-24-2003, 03:56 AM
lol... of all the threads to bump up. Is there anybody else that I need to insult for this look? As Th correctly pointed out a while ago, Nadal not only does this but his headbands are way too big. He definately deserves to be slammed for that ;)

A lot of really old threads have been getting bumped up lately. Though, I don't think I've seen this one before so it's new to me.

I have to say, though, that I think Mark Philippoussis looks the worst in the bandana covering his forehead and pushing back his hair just emphasizes the fact that he has huge eyebrows and no space between his eyes and the brows. The only person I can think of that would look worse with this look is Pete Sampras.

what about Guga? he looks absolutely yummy with the bandana on

Doris Loeffel
07-24-2003, 07:59 AM
Hmmm yet there's an other one missing Rebecca....


.... Feliciano Lopez!! (Sorry Roger but this time my vote goes to him ;) )

Xin
07-25-2003, 11:04 PM
I like Moya's. But it may also due to the reason I like those kind of look. Out of the list, I think Mark's was awful. For some reason, I don't like Rafter to have long hair. Maybe it's because the shape of his face. It suits short hair look. Hewitt with long hair looks just like Kim :D

Hmm...out of the list, I'd say Carlos. However, I chose other... because:
Jurgen Melzer
Andreas Vinciguerra
Feliciano Lopez (discovered thanks to this board!)

lol sorry for the huge files, I just wanted to back up my theory ;)

Moya pulls it off.

Federer should try something different, imo.

But BORG :worship: was the king of this look.

Moya should get rid of it, though it's OK with it. I just guess he'll look better without.

Roger and Feli r both cute with bandana. I love it

star
12-27-2003, 02:49 PM
I can't believe Guga wasn't on the poll. Guga does the bandana look better than anyone else, and Clement is a very close second. Anyone else can only be compared to the two of them.

Federer's bandana is too neatly folded and looks more like a headband than a bandana.

IMO headbands are a completely different thing from bandanas, and might need to be outlawed along with knee length baggy shorts and insanely baggy shirts. :)

Ma. Estefania
12-27-2003, 10:34 PM
I know I already voted here a long time ago for Magnus, but I gotta say that like someone said some posts above, Vinciguerra looks well with it too.

And the worst one with it? Hicham Arazi....specially when he's got no hair....u know, á la Pat Rafter at last Wimbys.

Fedex
12-27-2003, 10:46 PM
Well, my vote goes to Federer! You can just tell he takes so much time, doing his hair. I think his bandanna look is quite good. (better than Andy's trucker hat). When he does take it off its usually in a very neat bun! I think he could try something differerent sometime, but right now i think it looks alright! :o

Allez Nono! He also gets credit for most fashionable bandannas, most creative use of color and the "immaculately pressed" bandanna award.

It also helps that it DOES NOT have a corporate logo on it. That is truly fashionable!

I agree 100 percent that the fashionable bandana does not carry a swoosh or anyother logo.

Really, I love Guga and his bandanas, but Arnaud is the one who made the bandana into a fashion statement. I'm not even a big fan, but I can admit that Arnaud is the tour's fashion plate. He can even make those weird sunglasses work. :)
