Neymar’s Hairstyle Palette
Throughout his career so far, Neymar has donned various styles in his hair, ranging from curls to Mohawks, mullets to dreadlocks, in various colours, shapes and lengths of hair. These are colourful, crazy, creative, and outrageously original, and have been a part of his identity during his ascent as a quality soccer player.
What most might not know about Neymar’s hair is that, it is naturally curly and black. In one of his early appearances for Santos back in March 2009, 17 year old Neymar appears with a shaggy buzz cut, apparently fashioned in a jiffy, and shows off his natural colour and texture.
In May 2010, 18 year old Neymar appeared for Santos with a Mohawk at the top and the sides buzzed. This was possibly his first official appearance with the style that later went on to become his trademark. The Mohawk, in its budding stage, was short and kempt.
As a part of the Brazilian team in a friendly match against the United States in August 2010, Neymar sported the Mohawk again, only this time, it was much more carefully stylized and flamboyant. His hair had grown longer – or, should we say, higher – by this time, and the Mohawk was very distinct. Some loved the look, and some raised eyebrows.
In a friendly match against Scotland for Brazil in March 2011, Neymar appeared with a more stylish and better styled Mohawk, in a somewhat Cristiano Ronaldo-ish Metro Mullet fashion. Apparently, his relationship with his Mohawk had gotten pretty serious by then.
Neymar appeared in the Club World Cup in December 2011, when he played for Santos and sported a hairstyle that was more of a fauxhawk. The hair was bleached blond, with most of the hair growing long all over, and spikes that were gelled to hold strong and upright at the centre. This was indeed more extravagant than his previous hairstyle and still a very stylish look.
At the Ballon d’Or in Zurich, Switzerland, in January 2012, Neymar appeared to receive the Puskás Award for the best goal of the year, with still a messy fauxhawk. However, his colour, however, was dyed in a more muted tone. He oozed confidence as he attended a formal award event in a dapper suit and sporting such a hairstyle.
In the matches of the Olympics in August 2012, Neymar’s Mohawk was a cross with a mullet. The sides were shortened, with spikes shooting in all directions. He often sported a headband.
In February 2013, Neymar appeared against England in a friendly match with a brilliantly bleached blond hair, with his Mohawk uniquely gelled.
In June 2013, Neymar appeared in a match against England where he was given the iconic jersey number 10. His hair looked much more staid, as he ditched both spikes and dye, and went for a rather simpler and less garish but still stylish, layered look.
In August 2013, Neymar carried the tame, gelled hair look to his new club, Barcelona, with sides almost shaved, and no dyes on.
This young player seems to have a bright future ahead, and will continue to win hearts with his superb skills. It is likely that he will have the same attitude of a superstar, and we can expect him to turn up with more bizarre and fun new hairstyles.
