1. How Do You Do Neymar Hairstyle?

This Brazilian footballer often has different hairdos and hairstyles. The truth is that he has natural curls and it can be a bit tricky for his barber to do his hair. However, if you want to try a new hairdo and find a different look that suits you, why not copy him and do the following?!

  • Stick to your natural color, no reason to color it or experiment with some wild highlights as Neymar tends to do
  • Go for a long top hair and opt for shaved sides while applying your favorite wax or hair gel on the sides
  • Watch out for your hair length (aim for cuts every 3-4 weeks to maintain it)
  • Add a bit of texture with pomade, and don’t forget to wash & condition your hair with high-quality products

2. What Is Neymar’s Hair Type?

Since he is always playing football and is always active during World Cup, his hair tends to go through a lot of changes. The truth is that many big names and players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi tend to go through different kinds of hair changes. Due to constant sweating, running around, and spending hours out in the sun, their hair tends to look greasy and oily. This is why Neymar’s hair is oily and prone to breakage. This is also one of the reasons why most guys (players) tend to opt for shaved or buzzcut looks. Every soccer player can have a different cut/style of hair. It all comes down to following a trend that works for you and your hair type (as Neymar has done).

3. What Can Football Players Go For When It Comes To Their Hair?

The choice can be and feel overwhelming. The truth is that you can go for anything that you fancy and that you find attractive. Most football players tend to go for clean & shaved cuts, while others opt for practical yet voluminous messy buns or ponytails. Always go for something that you feel and look good in. Don’t just follow trends because others are doing it or because Instagram is telling you to. Most guys tend to go for:

  • A short faux hawk
  • Buzzcut
  • Ponytail & bun looks
  • Soft & short pompadour

Having Said All of That,

Neymar has been an inspiration for many people when it comes to their haircuts, as well as their everyday style. He has changed his haircut many times over the years, therefore there is an entire menu of hairstyles to choose from. He rocked long hair, short hair, curly hair, mohawks, and many other haircuts. Hopefully, you liked today’s article and will be trying one of these Neymar haircuts in the future!
