Fans of all sports have interesting and fun ways to express their love of the sport and their favorite teams. Even the players themselves sometimes will don interesting hairdos either for press, personal image or just because.
With the World Cup still in full storm, we’ve decided to bring together some of the most interesting hairstyles from fans and players that we’ve spotted so far.
If you thought barbers were talented, you have to see the work of Rob Ferrel, owner of Rob the Original Barbershop in San Antonio. Here, he shaves a portrait of USA goalkeeper Tim Howard into a man’s hair. He uses eyeliner at the end to add color to the cut. If this isn’t true World Cup fandom, then we have no idea what is.
Rodrigo Palacio of Argentina has his own version of a rat tail for his hair. While we have seen this hairstyle all over the world, this one is a bit mind-boggling. For one, it looks like a braided hair extension stuck to the middle of his head. Also, we can’t imagine the pain if another player were to accidentally tug on that hair while playing.
Can’t get cornrows for your hair? Just find braided rope and paint your favorite team’s colors instead! All joking aside, this fan shows his dedication to Brazil by taunting opposing teams not only with his iPad, but with his hair. Maybe it’s just best to find some braided human hair extensions, no?
Marouane Fellaini of Belgium is taking us back to the 70s with his fro. If you saw him down the street, you’d think that it’s a men’s wig, but no. This is his real hair. We wonder if it helps ease the pain when head-bunting the soccer ball.
This is some next-level patriotism here. Possibly just as insane as the first Tim Howard pic, this male American fan embodies the great country’s flag onto his head. Whether he actually shaved stars onto his head, or he used a custom hairpiece in the shape of a star, you can tell he’s definitely proud of his country.
Maybe this will serve you as inspiration for your next hairstyle when you want to express your love for the sport. Or maybe this was just a fun read for you as it was a fun post to put together for us! Make sure to visit our Facebook page for more fun content.
