Chelsea target man, Olivier Giroud, may be vying for a starting place in Didier Deschamp’s French national team but there is another arena where he is the stand out player.
In a global survey of football fans across eight nations facilitated by Head & Shoulders, it has been revealed that Giroud’s Polished Pompadour hairstyle is highly sought after in France.
When asked what hairstyle in the French national team football fans would most like to replicate, a whopping 44% replied with the Chelsea man.
PSG midfielder, Adrian Rabiot was condemned with the reverse title as 27% voted the Frenchman’s curls as the least desirable hairstyle in the national team.
Giroud has helped the classical football look known as the Polished Pompadour return to the forefront of hairstyle choices.
Somewhat conventional when compared with Neymar Jr’s bleached blonde locks, the reason behind the popularity of the Pompadour could be that 33% of pollsters highlighted their workplace dress code as the deciding factor preventing them from adopting a braver hair-do in support of their footballing heroes.
“Treating their scalps as blank canvases, footballers have long given their hairstylists full creative license in crafting artistic masterpieces that make statements, set trends and that grab the headlines when gracing football’s biggest stages,” commented Landry Agres, a celebrity football stylist.
As part of the Head & Shoulders #JUSTWATCHME campaign and in promotion of the Men Ultra range, football hairstylist Landry Agres is giving fans exclusive football hairstyle tutorials so they can have their own famous football hairstyle from the past or present.
