Newport, KY, June 23, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The U.S. Men's National Team failed to qualify for the current FIFA World Cup of soccer. And Thursday, the best hope of the U.S. in a different World Cup tournament was knocked out of the running - a tournament for outstanding hairstyles.
South Korea came from behind to defeat the United States and win the Green Group of Super-Hair World Cup V, an event held every four years by the celebrity hairstyle site Super-Hair.Net. The 16-nation tournament is now in the semifinal round, with open online voting for the winners.
"Our format has only one top hairstyle representing a country," explained the webmaster of Super-Hair.Net. "The U.S. was represented this year by WeatherNation meteorologist Merry Matthews. She won two matches in group play, but lost in the final week's showdown."
The U.S. had won the last three Super-Hair World Cups, dating back to 2006. Supermodel Angie Everhart prevailed twice, followed by former Boston television reporter Victoria Warren in 2014.
The 16 nations were divided into four groups through a live online draw in April. These four group winners have advanced to the knockout semifinals:
- Indonesia - actress Sandra Dewi.
- Lithuania - professional ballroom dancer and model Patricija Belousova.
- Philippines - teacher, model, actress and pageant winner Kylie Verzosa.
- South Korea - actress Jun Ji-hyun, also known as Gianna Jun.
People can vote in the semifinals through Friday, June 28 (U.S. time) on the Super-Hair World Cup page at Super-Hair.net. Pictures of all four group winners are posted there. The matchups have Philippines against Indonesia and South Korea against Lithuania. The survivors clash for the championship from June 28 through July 8.
