Why do some women cyclists wear their helmets on the back of their head? :?

Just curious.

So as not to disturb their coiffure obviously. :P
None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.

Most likely, because to them it's a hat, and that's how they wear hats. I've seen men do it as well, and back when the fashion was for a baseball cap worn sideways, I occasionally wondered what they'd do if required to wear a crash helmet
