This player might not have the most eye-catching cut compared to some of his fellow athletes, but it’s still worth mentioning. Is his hair nothing but al dente noodles? Does he have bits of a mattress attached to his head? One way or another, he’s got a hairdo that looks like it could take a hit and keep right on looking fly. It might also taste good with some marinara.
Not everybody can pull off a curly look such as this, but Serge Gnabry knows he has it in him. We think it’s a good look, even if it is a little off the wall.
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.
Must Be Playing During Halloween
This player – Gabon forward Pierre Emerick Aubameyang – has one of the most hair-raising cuts that we've ever seen. We don't know what he's looking at, but we're big fans of horror movies – Aubameyang, let us know what has you spooked. Unless it's “Jumanji,” then the conversation is over.
It probably doesn't have to be a movie. He could be watching his team get trounced by a bunch of little kids. That can be scary to anybody. Regardless, he's got the kind of haircut that might just be giving some people nightmares. We're certainly going to be thinking about it for a while.
Racing Stripes for Speed
Sadio Mane of Senegal has perfect control of the ball as he's working his way downfield, but does that mean he's in perfect control of his hair? No. It still looks pretty good, though. A shorter cut is always easier to work with, though it looks like Mane has done something a little different with his namesake.
He's added a blond strip down the side – there might even be a second on one the other side, though we can't tell for certain. Like all stripes on fast things, this bit of coloration undoubtedly helped Mane move with a little more quickness on the pitch.
Comb It Like Beckham
Even if you know nothing about soccer, you're probably familiar with David Beckham, even if it's just because of the Spice Girl he married. He's one of the more famous footballers in the world thanks to his skill on the grass, but that doesn't mean he always had the perfect look while he was playing.
This image proves and shows us that even if you're a world-renowned athlete, you still need to look in the mirror before you head to practice. This photo is from over two decades ago, which might explain the style, but it's still not something you want to encourage.
