Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

There are many fascinating aspects to Europe’s greatest football tournament.  24 countries coming together and competing for the title of ‘best in all of Europe’.  There are age old rivalries, hundreds of thousands of fans pouring into French stadiums, and many of the greatest footballers on earth competing for their countries.  So of course we at decided to talk about haircuts.  Because you can read about all that other shit on espn.

We are not sure if Dennis Rodman was the first athlete to make ridiculous hair part of his image, but here are some of his European equivalents.

This is the mohawk you wanna wear if you’re selling energy drinks to 13 year old boys at the Warp Tour, but probably should be avoided in like…every other situation.

Slovakia: Marek Hamsik
Hairstyle: “The Can Opener”



To quote Rodney Dangerfield, “Last time I saw a mouth like that it had a hook in it”.  Holy good God, keep your hands and pets away from that yapper at all times.  Oh! and the square mohawk is also a problem.

France: Paul Pogba
Hairstyle: “Funky Billboard”

Pogba gets points for creativity, as he changes his hairdo seemingly every game.

Austria:  Marko Arnautovic
Hairstyle: “The Vienna Sausage”

We’re not sure what you were thinking either.  Wearing a ponytail on the top of your head makes you look like a sausage link.

Wales: Aaron Ramsey & Gareth Bale
Hairstyle: Manbun & Q-Tip



I once bleached my hair when I was 14 years old…I’m glad I got that mistake out of the way early.  But the manbun?  There’s just no excuse for it.

Belgium: Marouane Fellaini
Hairstyle: “The Eagle’s Nest”
