Neymar’s Hairstyle Palette : 10 Best Neymar Hairstyles 2015
As a pro soccer player, and also before that, Neymar has been seen with multiple types of hairstyles. Mohawks, mullets, dreadlocks, etc., in a variety of colours, lengths and textures have been sported by him. He has not hesitated in carrying the most eccentric and creative hairstyles at various stages in his rapidly rising success in career.
It is surprising that Neymar’s original hair is neither straight nor blonde. It is black and curly. In March 2009, he made and appearance for Santos, his hair buzzed shaggily buzzed hair, such that it looked like it had been styled in a hurry. This style showed his natural hair.
In May 2010, Neymar made and appearance for Santos, his hair styled into a Mohawk and the sides buzzed. This was the first time he officially appeared with a Mohawk, something that became his trademark style. The Mohawk, still in its developing stage, was short and clean.
During an August 2010 friendly match against the United States, Neymar was seen playing for Brazil with a carefully stylized and much more flamboyant Mohawk. His hair strands looked longer – technically higher – and very distinctly formed into a Mohawk.
During a friendly match against Scotland in March 2011, Neymar was seen with a stylish, Cristiano Ronaldo-like Metro Mohawk and it looked better styled.
Neymar was seen in the December 2011 Club World Cup with a hairstyle that turned more into a fauxhawk, his hair strands bleached blond and in different directions. The spikes stood upright at the centre, thanks to the gel, and looked flamboyant and wild, and still very stylish.
In January 2012, Neymar was at the Ballon d’Or in Zurich, Switzerland, to accept the Puskás Award for the best goal of the year. He was seen with a messy fauxhawk, though in a much more muted colour. He showed great confidence and courage, teaming up his dapper suited up look with a wild hairstyle as a formal event like that.
In August 2012 during the Olympics, Neymar was seen with a style that was somewhat a cross between a mullet and hi Mohawk, sides short, and spikes in all directions. He often used a headband for his bangs with headbands.
In a friendly match against England in February 2013, Neymar was seen with his hair all bleached into a brilliant blonde colour, and the Mohawk was uniquely gelled.
In a match against England in June 2013, when he was allotted the iconic no. 10 jersey, Neymar was seen with a staid new hairstyle, having ditched both his favourite Mohawk and dyes. It was a simpler and tamer look, though it was still stylish.
In August 2013, Neymar was seen with his hair all gelled down, sporting a rather tame style, when he appeared for his new club Barcelona, with the sides buzzed short. He also ditched the dyes.
Neymar has given some great performances so far, at this young age, and it is likely that he is here to stay, facing football giants and making a niche for himself in the history anyway. We look forward to some great new moments by Neymar on the field and some equally great hairstyles.
