The ESC Finale is about more than just the best song. Titleholder Lena Meyer-Landrut also has to look after her appearance, styling her hair against stiff competition. In this spirit, we preview the looks of some promising and attractive candidates in the gallery
The question to what extent a particularly good hairstyle improves a competitor’s chances in the ESC Finale has remained a blind spot in music research to date. But let us simply assume that the path to success also leads the candidates to the hair salon, that tresses matter as well as tunes.
