A few players have caught my eye during this football World Cup. Côte d'Ivoire forward Gervinho, with his delicate arrangement of braids, is one of them.

It seems that his brave hairstyle is a result of him trying to hide his large forehead. I am unsure whether this is due to male pattern baldness or a feature he was born with.

As a braid wearer he is at risk of developing traction alopecia, so things could conceivably get even worse for Mr. Gervinho.
