The FIFA World Cup, also known as the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the senior men’s national teams of the members of FIFA, the sport’s global governing body.

The World Cup is the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world, exceeding even the Olympic Games; the cumulative audience of all matches of the 2006 FIFA World Cup was estimated to be 26.29 billion with an estimated 715.1 million people watching the final match a ninth of the entire population of the planet.

So you can only imagine from the immense amount of viewer’s worldwide, along with the vast influence the fashion and beauty industry have on the world today; the hairstyles that have surfaced causing worldwide trends.

As the world cup championship has finished (with Germany as the champions) we show you how top football stars style their hair.

Professional soccer players like Neymar da Silva Santos, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mario Balotelli, Guillermo Ochoa and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are admired not only for their athletic progress but also for their styles away from the soccer field. Brazil’s Neymar is sporting a thick, blonde, Mohawk, making him a major focal point on the field.

Italy’s Mario Balotelli’s also donning a mohawk but that comes as no surprise, I can’t imagine him with any other hairstyle…can you?

However, he is not the only one with a mohawk but he is the favourite, for sure.

Sweden’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s chignon propels right to the front lines of hair fashion — straight and smooth, close to the scalp but messy around the chignon.

Germany’s Bastian Schweinsteiger in the Spring of 2014 cut his hair short and is wearing a razor cut perfect to keep cool in the heat.

Mexico’s Guillermo Ochoa’s hair symbolizes the perfect balance of volume; curls and his headband keeps his curly tresses from getting in his way during the game; his curls definitely are a winner.

Among the adored hairstyles of the soccer stars you may find the practical yet appealling modern hairstyle, which fits your lifestyle and helps you win at your own game. Stop by your barber and try a new haircut inspired by the World Cup.
