Iconic Hairstyles Of Footballers Past & Present

With Marouane Fellaini getting rid of his famous afro this week, we take a look at footballers past and present who are remembered for their iconic hairstyles. Can you guess who some of them are?

To see some of the hairstyles, scroll through the gallery above!

David Beckham

The Manchester United legend was not known for one particular hairstyle, rather his willingness to change it up often. Known as "Golden Balls" in British media, Becks sported hairdos such as a mohawk, cornrows and man-buns during his playing days.

Carlos Valderrama 

The enigmatic, but also skilful, midfielder was known for his shaggy, blond afro and is arguably the most recognisable Colombian footballer of the 1990s.

Ruud Gullit

The Dutchman is considered a "GOAT" ("Greatest Of All Time") of the game, largely because of his incredible technical ability and achievements with the Netherlands national team. He was also known for sporting an impressive head of dreadlocks, thus giving him his signature look.

Mario Balotelli

In the modern era, Balotelli is known for sporting a mohawk that has come in many variations. To go with his outlandish hairstyle is his immense talent. However, his off-field antics have often caught up with him, with many believing he will never live up to the hype placed on him during the fledgling stages of his career.

Paul Pogba

Much like Beckham, Pogba is known for having a different hairstyle almost every week. Whether it be patterns or colour dyes, a normal boy's cut would never do for the Frenchman.
