This kind of look isn’t around much anymore, but it was a fun pick for people who wanted to get noticed during the eighties. Mop top, broom top, whatever you want to call it, it surely catches the eye. Mario Balotelli here honestly kind of rocks it, but why, exactly, we couldn’t tell you.
Maybe it’s the shape of his face. That has a lot to do with what haircuts look good on people. Go on, look it up, you might learn something. He’s focused on the next play, but his haircut is all style.
Going for the Distraction Method
Brazil forward Ronaldo Nazario loves to crack a joke here or there, such as in this image. He also sports what might be the most laughable haircut we've ever seen on a football player, but we aren't chuckling with him on this one. We barely even know how he might have accomplished the cut since it looks like the buzzed-short hairline goes down past where it used to lie.
Did he get implants to add more hair? Also, why did he get this cut in the first place? It does draw the eye – maybe it's to keep opponents off their game.
Looks a Bit Haphazard to Us
Bald isn't a bad look, but it seems Djibril Cisse simply couldn't go all the way to the cue-ball style. He's left a single line from front to back, untouched. In addition, he's dyed all the hair on his face, including his eyebrows, to be bright yellow. Was there some deep, personal reason for keeping two unequal halves of his dome separate when he stepped into the barbershop?
Maybe he did it himself, and he was in a rush to get to practice. If not for the remainder of his skull, this style wouldn't be that bad. We particularly enjoy the mustache.
Playing on a Windy Day
When the wind is blowing and you're trying to keep your mind on the ball, your hair might be doing something totally on its own. It kind of looks like this 'do is trying to crawl off this player's head, maybe over to the hot dog stand or out of the cold.
We look forward to the days when the sweep-cut – long on top and shaved on the sides – fades from existence forever, back to the dark and dingy hole it sprang out of. Stephan El Shaarawy looks like Ice-T decided to get into sports instead of rapping but kept the hairstyle.
Time to Fly
The Ivory Coast contains a lot of amazing sights, but few are as amazing as forward Gervinho with his wings at a full spread. Sure, everybody with long hair has a flow if they're in motion, but we bet that this player would look like he's about to take off even if he was standing still.
His dreads are all locked up under the 'do-rag, but they look ready to bust out and take on a life of their own. Would that be a red card or a yellow card? We bet that one isn't even covered in the rule book.
