Jack the Snipper got together with Richard Hughes from Man Scape at the Sydney Morning Herald to talk Best and Worst haircuts of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Keeping a close eye on the action for Man Scape has been Paul Macnamara, owner and head barber at Jack the snipper in Byron Bay.
Here are our experts’ picks of the World Cup’s best haircuts: Olivier Giroud (France) The Arsenal striker is a firm favourite with our experts. Macnamara says: “A French twist on a ’50s rockabilly staple, Giroud is kicking goals with this pompadour. I’m only a fan of the ‘disconnect’ when it is done well, and the French striker’s stylist has done a cracking job.”
Ross Barkley – pictured above (England) Macnamara says: “Barkley has a good strong hairline and his stylist has chosen to make a feature out of it with the definitive line across the front, with short back and sides. Mix that in with the perfect fade and you have a super sweet and short cut, much like England’s campaign.”
Gerard Piqué (Spain) Macnamara says: “The Spanish centre back has managed what most men want, the effortlessly stylish haircut. Piqué’s hairstyle looks great messy and textured but remains super flexible.”
Matthieu Debuchy (France) Macnamara says: “The French playmaker is right on trend with this high and tight slick back.” Robin Van Persie (the Netherlands) Macnamara says: “A salt and pepper fox at the ripe old age of 30, Van Persie keeps the sides short and tidy. Having a natural curl in his hair, the top is perfect for some texture and height to keep him looking stylish on and off the field.”
