DiMartino Goes 80s

U.S. midfielder Tina DiMartino was sporting a unique hair management device the other day at training, something not seen since the glory days of the 1980s. Yes, it was a florescent green scrunchy. Apparently DiMartino and Megan Rapinoe were browsing through American Apparel when Rapinoe spied the fashion nugget. "I'll buy it if you wear it," said Rapinoe to DiMartino. Rapinoe called the scrunchy "both shockingly awful and wonderfully tremendous" at the same time, she knew she had a potential trend-setting in DiMartino. Known for one of the best messy buns in women's soccer, and with a mop of brown hair that is just as likely to be on the top or either side of her head (and sometimes all of the above), DiMartino was certainly game. She only wore it for one training, but we are thinking she may spark a "retro trend" with young soccer girls all across America bringing back the scrunchy. Below are a few that DiMartino might sport in the future. (Left: Hearts. Middle: Giraffe. Right: Green w/ soccer balls).
