Footballer hairstyle: Rules of the game
Sporty hairstyles need to stay in shape, perspiration and motion notwithstanding, and must persevere in training. Here are a few tips and tricks for proper hairstyle discipline for professionals:
World champions: Hair elastics are widely used in sporty hairstyles – often to accompany a classic ponytail or chignon. A hair band is ideal to keep the fringe and other short hairs from falling into the face. Unlike the Alice band, the elastic hair band is also suitable for headers. And: Thanks to different colours, the hair accessory can be matched to the outfit.
Let the game begin!
Warm-up: Top-notch footballer hairstyles require the right preparations. Mousse is needed to keep the hairstyle in top form. From the undone chignon to the braided style or short cut, a bit of mousse lends natural hold and volume to the hairstyle.
Play: Change tactics and try a new sporting hairstyle often. This prevents hair from being stressed by clips and elastics in the same places all the time. Tie the hair at the crown, at other times at the back of the head, or braid it on the side.
The final: Secure the finished style with some hairspray. This ensures even better hold and prevents loose strands of hair from distracting you.
Regenerating care: Brush hair before washing to loosen strands knotted by sports and remove residues of styling products. A conditioner revitalises your hair and gives it new strength. Stressed hair needs to be cut regularly so it falls well and maintains a healthy gloss.
