Like in football, Neymar does not like to play it safe in the field of hairstyles so beware; there is a lot of activity going on in the following section of the article.
The Natural look; curly and black
Many of you readers might not know this, but Neymar’s natural hair is Black and Curly. Back in 2009, when Neymar made his appearance for a Santos game, was probably the last time the world saw his original hair. Black, curly and short, without any apparent styling with a simple buzz cut. That’s the effortless, natural Neymar look. Neymar apparently had a fashion awakening shortly afterwards as the buzz cut never made a public appearance again.
The short and clean Mohawk
In 2010, in another Santos game, the famous Neymar Mohawk also made its first public appearance. The short and clean Mohawk with the side hair trimmed soon became a popular trend among young football enthusiasts all around the world. At this stage the Mohawk was without any dye, but the hair was definitely straightened to style the Mohawk. This hairstyle became Neymar’s trademark hairstyle in the following years. The Neymar Mohawk stayed for a very long time off and on until in 2013 when the Mohawk was trimmed down to a shorter, clean hairstyle.
The Flashy Mohawk
Later in 2010, the world saw the already famous Neymar Mohawk take a more flamboyant shape with the length of hair increased but the styling done skillfully. The side hair was still trimmed. The Mohawk was this time jelled for the hair strands to stand spiked to form a wild, sporty look. The front hair were stylized to fall on Neymar’s forehead in a curved fashion. This loud Mohawk was a successor to the previously showcased short and clean Neymar Mohawk.
The Metro Mohawk
It seemed as if Neymar idealized Cristiano Ronaldo along with the rest of the football fanatics as he was seen rocking a Cristiano Ronaldo-like wet, metro-Mohawk in 2011. Crafted with heavy jelling, the metro-Mohawk was styled professionally with the side hair buzzed and a strand of hair falling on Neymar’s forehead. This look created a buzz among the youngsters as it inspired another fashion trend like the previous Neymar hairstyles.
Neymar is, well, Neymar; therefore the change in hairstyle was much expected. Later in 2011, the world says Neymar’s hair styled into a Fauxhawk with hair spikes dyed blonde and fashioned to stand upright at the center with strands of hair falling on his forehead. The side hair; still trimmed. The back hair was grown and cut off and on by the star player, sometimes styles in the form of long braids.
The Messy Fauxhawk
Neymar’s hair went through a change one again for the Balloon d’Or when he dyed them down to muted tones with the hair and the back and sides grown to form a messy Fauxhawk. The hairstyle shouted, wild and young, but Neymar skillfully paired it with a black suit looking as professional as any other footballer at the event.
By 2012, Neymar’s hair had gone through yet another fashion revolution. During the Olympics, he was seen flaunting a mullet-Mohawk with the side hair buzzed and the front bangs falling on his forehead. This mullet-Mohawk grew on and took the shape of a rough mullet-Mohawk and then grew on to become what we would call as an overgrown mullet-Mohawk. The hair at the front grew so much that they started falling in his eyes and Neymar had to use a hair band to keep them out of his eyes. By early 2013, the Mohawk was trimmed down to give a subtle look, his hair dyed blonde and jelled to look sassy and bold.
The Shorter, Tamer Cut
By mid-2013, the iconic Mohawk was gone, the blonde Neymar was seen flaunting his new, very short haircut with short strands at the front styled to fall on his forehead. This very short at the back, volume at the front look also took to gather a lot of attention with enthusiastic fans all over the world following in Neymar’s footsteps to get the same sporty look.
The Undyed Spiked hair
The dye took some time to make its exit, but by the end of 2013, the dye had faded out, the side hair buzzed even shorter but the front fringes remained, stylized to fall on Neymar’s forehead. This neat look suited Neymar and apparently he decided to keep it as he is still seen rocking the hairstyle with minor changes every once in a while.
From short buzzed hair to over grown Mohawks and Fauxhawks to dye, short and trimmed hair Neymar has seen sporting all kinds of looks that have taken the form of fashion trends all over the world. The star footballer has been known to start hair style movements with his changing hairstyles. Although his hairstyles have kept changing rigorously over the years, Neymar hairstyles that have come and gone still remain in the form of blind cult following that he receives from his fans all around the globe. What is he planning to do next? Only Neymar knows, but we are sure that whatever it is, will be as wild and sporty as his previous looks.
