Maddy Wiederkehr, 11, who lives in Westchester County, has been putting her hair up in a tidy Aly Raisman-style topknot since watching the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Her first stop after returning from summer camp on Sunday was the Cozy Cuts for Kids salon on the Upper East Side. She got a professional's take on her new favorite style. "I like that it's smooth," she said.
"There's no bumps. It's perfect."
Gymnastics dictates that hair be neat and pulled back from the face. The way a gymnast accomplishes.
