Great football and great hair have always gone together, from the days of Pele’s understated but classic look, to the eye-catching styles of the '80s and '90s, to the anything-goes era of today.
In today’s game, the classic Afro style is making a comeback with players like Everton’s Marouane Fellaini, Real Madrid’s Marcelo and, in a messier, crazier version of the style, Chelsea’s David Luiz.
But big and bold aren’t the only ways to go. Long hair has always been associated with the coolness of rock and roll, and budding superstar Radamel Falcao is one of the players carrying on the tradition today.
In this clip, B/R lead writers Michael Cummings and Will Tidey discuss the best hair in world football this season, and the guys listed above are only the start. In addition to all that, there’s also room for a '90s-style high-top and a fierce hairdo that a warrior would be proud to wear.
