Soccer star Hope Solo was practically out the door and headed for London to prep for the Olympics when we got the chance to ask her some beauty questions. Here, eight super quick answers from the fastest, most gorgeous goalie around. Ready, go!
What's your workout hairstyle?
A ponytail, slicked back with no flyaways.

We hate when a workout ruins our blowout. Have you found a solution?
I haven't found a complete solution, but a bit of dry shampoo and a flat iron can definitely help.
Do you wear any makeup for a game?
How do you deal with sweat-induced blemishes?
My training and frequent travel schedule can definitely be tough on my sensitive skin. I do a quick-cleanse after the field with facial wipes. I like the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes because they're made without dyes, artificial perfumes, or harsh irritants.

What's your favorite SPF?
I use an SPF 15 or higher and reapply frequently, especially on my arms and legs, which are constantly exposed.
Do you have any superstitions that you do before a game?
I always have to take my necklace off as the last thing I do before I hit the field.

Does your team have any USA-related beauty plans for the Olympics? Maybe some American flag nail art? Some blue eyeliner?! Just sayin'...
Not really! Everybody has their own unique style they like to embrace. [Ed.: Hey, it was worth a shot. We'll be rocking our American flag decals all month!]
How do you cover-up bruises?
I don't cover them up. I'm proud of my bruises and scars. They're part of my job and they tell a story.
It's official: Hope Solo is the hottest badass we know.
