With the FIFA World Cup 2018 starting today, the football fever has reached new heights. Since this is one of the happiest excuses for professional footballers to make a new statement with their personal style, they have to be sleek and stylish. Back in the 2002 FIFA World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo turned heads by sporting a semi-circular tuft of hair at the front. His experiment proved to be lucky as it earned the team a victory for the fifth time in a row.
So, what are the hairstyles that we are going to see on the football field this year?
Argentineans Got That Messi Hairdo Yet?

Considered by many to be the greatest player in the world, Messi prefers to take a mainstream approach for all his looks. This year, he’s going for a rich full beard and a neat short haircut. The hair is brushed to the sides, with the short sides and the back matching with the longer hair at the top of his head. If you’re a die-hard Messi fan, stay away from hairspray and let your hair fall naturally to the front. All you have to do is to keep it slick at the sides and back.

Okay, let’s just get done with this eternal “who is better – Ronaldo or Messi” debate right here!
The man who made football even cooler just had to feature on this list. He is globally known as a huge style icon, and fans will see him in a shocking buzz cut with a neat razor line across his parting. If you are rooting for Ronaldo or Portugal (all the same), you should definitely head up to the barber and get this done. Better not attempt this at home!

Neymar has wowed his fans with his amazing debut way back in 2010. He has chosen shaved sides, a chic quiff and a neck tattoo as his statement look for this year. Neymar’s hairstyle needs some practice, some good-quality hair clay and hairspray to keep it all together and looking drool-worthy.

Pogba is no stranger to hairstyle experimentation – and his experiments include burst fade Mohawk with leopard print, engraving Chinese characters into his hair, shaved sides, blonde hair – he’s done it all, keeping up with his unpredictable streaks. If your style is just as edgy and chaotic, all you need to do is experiment with your hair with different cuts and colors.

De Gea has sported several hairstyles over the span of his career, but he will deal with the deal with his man-bun. A man-bun can be ridiculously tricky to pull off, but he manages to act the complete heartthrob with this look. If you love man-buns as much as we do, simply pull your long hair into a sleek bun and secure it tightly. A low man-bun gives a more masculine look to your entire face.
Now that you’re totally into the football fan-mode, all you need is to get that custom hairstyle and you never know that might just make your favorite country win! Enjoy the football fiesta!
