Great hair is a matter of opinion: there are certainly some objective criteria, like creativity, hold, bounce, shine, length, and more. We put the best hair in MLS to the test with a bracketed tournament, and the competition has finally reached the last round. Did your favorite make it?

StormInMay posited this matchup was mostly a matter of whether you prefer facial hair or not in your mohawk-with-a-blond-steak hairdo. The clean look of Mikey Lopez wins! But can a youthful bench jockey for a non-playoff team challenge the big boys in the final vote? Mikey immediately becomes your dark horse candidate for champion.

Oh the humanity! The final Rapids player goes down and out of the tourney. How does that happen? My guess is twitter. I  tweeted out this match up with each player's twitter handle. Marly G has a respectable 2,200 followers. Robbie Rogers has 227,000. Also, he's Robbie Rogers. He has his own line of denim jackets. His hair is boy-band perfect. It was always gonna be a long shot for Hairston.


...

Nguyen wins in a landslide. He's beaten his opponents 70-30, 67-33, 70-30. The people are on his side. He's a slick soccer player in a glamour position. Is this your inevitable winner?

...

I'm kind of relieved. Wil Trapp's hair is, in my opinion, just hair. How he upset Lucas Melano and lasted this long is beyond me. Camara finally dispatches him, and gives our tourney final a nice balance of positions: a winger (Lopez), defender (Rogers), midfielder (Nguyen), and striker (Camara). It is also mixed in age, and race, and goal scoring, and domestic/international status.

Alright - that sets the final vote. The last round will be a four-way vote between Mikey Lopez, Robbie Rogers, Lee Nguyen and Kei Camara. Voting will begin next week!
