Soccer haircuts are undeniably popular; possibly the most influential of all sports leagues. With so many different countries, cultures, and personalities, you get some really crazy soccer hairstyles out on the field.
Some could probably use a better hairstylist, while other’s really take their hair-dos seriously. We’ve compiled our favorite hairstyles of 2016 So, in no particular order, here are what we think are the best soccer haircuts out there that might want to try out for yourself!
2- Cristiano Ronaldo
You never know what Ronaldo is going to be sporting each time he takes the field. His creative hairstyles are something of an art in itself, blurring the line between typical soccer player haircuts and punk rock expressionism.
3- Xabi Alonso
This Spanish footballer is a hit with the ladies, and one of the best soccer haircuts out there, in our humble opinion. He combines two of the best manly looks into one package. A face full of beard meets a scholarly hairstyle, all kept neatly groomed with clean edges.
4- Toni Kroos
This handsome German sports one mean side part for our favorite soccer hairstyle of 2015. You want to also use a low shine pomade, as with Alonso’s hairstyle.
This haircut also works pretty nicely with a beard or goatee, depending on facial structure and coarseness.
5- Lionel Messi
Speaking of coarse hair, we couldn’t leave the luscious Argentinian out of our list of the best soccer player hairstyles. Most of the time, guys with the thickest hair get the sheering treatment in order to make things easier to manage, but not Messi.
Sporting a nice disconnected undercut, this style is popular inside and outside of the soccer world. Plenty of men have been sporting this style in 2016 because it’s easy to maintain and style.
7. Aaron Ramsey
Here we have a nice side combed hairstyle with a tight fade on the sides and back. This style keeps him looking professional off the field, but keeps the hair out of his eyes when it’s time to score some goals. Classy and useful, now that’s my kind of haircut.
8. Antoine Griezmann
Antoine here is sporting something similar to an Ivy League haircut in this photo. Once again this is an easy to maintain style with short sides. It goes well with light facial hair as seen in this photo, or with a clean shave.
9. Sergio Ramos
Proving that not even soccer is safe from the rise of the fohawk fade, Sergio Ramos is sporting the look here with a tight low fade and a wavy top that makes for a nice long faux hawk.
10. Miguel Veloso
Miguel is sporting a brushed up style here with faded sides almost like a faux hawk, but I would be more inclined to call it a blowout with the way he has it styled upward. Either way, this is a good look for men with medium hair lengths who want to try something different.
