If you weren't already fully on board with the wonder that is Johnny Weir, get ready to join the fan club. For The Win reports that Johnny's hairstyle for Wednesday's Olympic Games is actually a tribute to the people of Ukraine.

"I was planning, before I came, on doing braids because it's the style here," Weir said. "I wanted to do it today because everything is going so rough over there."
