As the name suggests, the flow cut is all about the sense of actual flowing movement in the hair. The hair is kept pretty long on top, with layers and a professional step cut adding volume and fullness to the hair. This flow cut can be styled easily with a wax or pomade through the lengths of the hair, as demonstrated by the Netherlands’ Frenkie de Jong.
Phil Foden underwent a much-talked-about ‘full gazza’ transformation for Euros 2020, and tbh, we’re definitely here for it. Foden’s new trim is characterized by the micro-fringe and bleached colour with a silvery-grey hue. Let’s hope the Gazza inspo brings us some luck this year, too?Book men's hair colouring
The pompadour haircut might have been primarily associated with Elvis et al. in days gone by, but the modern update is now a firm fave with footballers. Toni Kroos gives the look a sportier edge by adding a deep side part, an undercut, and keeping the top length relatively long. The end result is a sleek, masculine look that’s super easy to pull off.
Kalvin Phillips’ braided look is definitely a stand-out from the tournament, and possibly one of our faves. The England star’s hair is braided into sections on top, with the braids tied in two hair ties towards the back of the head. The sides are expertly faded to a super short buzz. Rumour has it Phillips’ style is already influencing other players (we’re looking at you, Trent Alexander-Arnold), and we can see why.Book braids
The man-bun might not be as prevalent today as it was back in the 2010’s, but Antoine Griezmann is proving that this style might just have outgrown it’s hipster reputation. Griezmann’s hair is slicked back to a mid-height bun, and he opts to leave out some of his super long locks, making for a casual variation on the look. Grew out your hair during lockdown? This casual half bun might be your go-to post-covid look.
The classic undercut fade is the perfect example of minimal effort with maximum effect. This haircut is not only easy to get (almost every stylist masters it perfectly), but it’s also currently one of the most popular short haircuts out there, and for good reason. As demonstrated by Germany’s Joshua Kimmich, this cut is longest at the top, and fades to a close buzz at sides (often only up to 3mm long), making it the perfect style for summer.Book a haircut
The faux-hawk is Cristiano Ronaldo’s go-to look, and we can see why. We’ve seen him rock a good few variations of this style over the years: he’s currently wearing a short, chic styled version, with the tips styled with product to create a dense crown shape. This cut is always popular, mainly because of its wearability. Heading straight from the pitch to the office? No problem with this versatile style.

1 - Go to a stylist. Okay, so we know some people are going to ignore this one . Still, we can’t stress enough how difficult home-bleaching can be to get right. Your stylist will be able to mix the correct colour and toner for your hair, which can be especially difficult if your hair is naturally a darker colour. Bleach is also super drying, and can really damage the hair if done incorrectly, so your colourist will be able to advise and help with this. They’ll also be able to perfect the cut, if you want to go full-Foden. …Read more
Ah, the man bun. A divisive hipster staple in the 2010s, and one that many of us (myself included) were glad to see virtually disappear for the past few years. Now though, it seems like the man bun is back. It seems the likes of Brad Pitt and Antoine Griezmann are proving that it might just have outgrown its hipster reputation. With longer hair proving a definite trend in 2021 (likely because of the months of lockdown and lack of access to a haircut that isn’t performed by your mum with the kitchen scissors), it seems that a cultural reset on…Read more
If you’d have asked me a couple of years ago to name three styles I would have put money on *not* coming back into fashion, I would pretty easily have chosen juicy tracksuits, crocs, and (most definitely) the mullet. Cut to 2021: Juicy tracksuits are a fave of every insta baddie from Kylie Jenner and Addison Rae to Bimini Bon Boulash. Crocs are a summer staple of Justin Bieber and Post Malone, and are selling out in Urban Outfitters. And most shockingly of all, the mullet is pretty much officially the coolest hairstyle out there - and I’m 100% here…Read more
