Former Gunners on Top as Head & Shoulders survey reveals table-topping football hairstyles

Aron Wright - June 20, 2018

A global survey of football fans across eight nations has shown that two former Gunners are considered to have the best barnets in their respective countries.

The survey, facilitated by Head & Shoulders, revealed that Olivier Giroud’s Polished Pompadour hairstyle is the most sought after look in France.

When asked what hairstyle in the French national team football fans would most like to replicate, a whopping 44% replied with the former Gunner.

An overwhelming majority (68%) of football fans would like to emulate the Frenchman in his choice of barnet this summer.

Giroud has helped the classical football look known as the Polished Pompadour return to the forefront of hairstyle choices.

Somewhat conventional when compared with Neymar Jr’s bleached blonde locks, the reason behind the popularity of the Pompadour could be that 33% of pollsters highlighted
their workplace dress code as the deciding factor preventing them from adopting a braver hair-do in support of their footballing heroes.

Meanwhile, one of Giroud’s former Arsenal team-mates was also heralded as a man with style. Poland’s goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski was voted to have the best hairstyle in the Polish national team with 32% of the vote.

As the latest wave of footballing superstars battle it out for hairstyle supremacy this summer, global football fans have identified David Beckham’s Cornrows as the most iconic hairstyle in the history of the beautiful game.

“Treating their scalps as blank canvases, footballers have long given their hairstylists full creative license in crafting artistic masterpieces that make statements, set trends and that grab the headlines when gracing football’s biggest stages,” commented Landry Agres, celebrity football stylist. “The foundation of a healthy scalp is to be free of symptoms like dryness, excess oil or inflammation that can cause flakes which are not part of any style.”

To celebrate football’s biggest competition and mark the arrival of the new Men Ultra range, Head & Shoulders has launched their new campaign – #JUSTWATCHME – empowering the world to be bold, brave and to celebrate their hairstyles through the confidence of having a 100% flake-free scalp.

As part of the Head & Shoulders #JUSTWATCHME campaign, football hairstylist Landry Agres is giving fans exclusive football hairstyle tutorials so they can replicate some of the beautiful game’s most iconic hairstyles this summer.
