Neymar aka Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior is widely considered one of the best soccer players in the world. But aside from his athletic prowess, he is known for his fashionable and sometimes out-of-the-world hairstyles.

Neymar is one of the best-looking athletes in the sports world. It must be why, no matter how eccentric his hairstyle is, he looks fabulous in his every new look.

Over the years, we have seen Neymar with so many hairstyles that he set the trend among young soccer fans. His fashionable and colorful hairstyles are inspirational to hairstylists as well.

Take a look at the 7 Neymar’s hottest and most handsome hairstyles and haircuts for you to try in the summer.

Neymar ‘Spends More than £1,400 A Month On His Hair’

In an interview with the soccer ace’s barber on Spanish website, the man in charge of the player’s hair is reported as saying: “He sends a driver to pick me up and take me home. It is difficult to calculate the price (of the business relationship), because the service is not available to all, but I do not do it for less than 2,000 euros a month.”

Whilst the Brazil captain’s hair is currently looking pitch perfect, he is known for his experimental looks which have included bleaching his naturally jet black hair to a pale blond, wearing tight braids and various part-shaved mohawk styles.

The Sport article further quotes the barber as saying that when Neymar first arrived at Barcelona his hair was in poor condition. “He had made too many changes, both hairstyles and colours, that left his hair in poor condition”.

The hairdresser’s first job, he claims, was to cut the player’s hair, and get it back in good shape. “Today,” he says, “it is silky.”

Neymar is lucky to be able to have a professional on hand as some of the extreme styles he has tried out, and the frequency at which he changes them, can lead to hair breakage.

Extreme – or is he worth it?

If Neymar’s hair care routine sounds extreme, a few calculations quickly reveal that compared to his income, it is but a trifling amount. Two thousand euros per month ads up to 24,000 euros per year – while the forward’s salary is said to be just under 30 million euros.

The amount the 30 year old spends on his hair, then, is less than 1,000th of his earnings – which would be like someone on the UK average salary of £26,500 spending less than £26.50 per year on their hair.

How To Style Neymar's Hottet Hairstyles?

For a sportsperson who's under constant scrutiny, having a set of pearly whites is more of a necessity. Even if your job doesn't require you to have a sparkling smile, you should still keep your teeth nice, clean and bright to maintain a confident and healthy appearance. So, apart from the regular brushing, washing and flossing of the teeth, you should also go for professional appointments to maintain your dental hygiene.

Men in their 20s don't really have to worry about fine lines or wrinkles. Or do they? Many scientific researches have shown that owing to our hazardous, fast-paced lifestyle, men start aging as fast as in their 20s. The key is to use a daily moisturizer with SPF properties that deflect sun's harmful UV rays that bring on panda eyes, wrinkles and leathery skin. You should look for products with double UVB and UVA protection to guard against both sunburn and wrinkles.

Patchy facial hair would have cut it if you had been in school, now it's time to get rid of that barely-there facial buzz. Facial hair looks nice if fully grown, uneven buzz makes you look like a douchebag. Neymar's hair starts disappearing right around his jaw line. Your best bet is to keep the sideburns on and trim the rest of the facial hair. Groom the longer sideburns by keeping a clean line and trimming the facial hair regularly.

His undercut hairstyle is both trendy and weather appropriate - the hair on sides are clipped which keep him cool on the field. What's tricky; however, are those bleached tips, which are going to look rather shabby when the colour starts washing away.

The best is to get a professional to dye your hair to get the basic colour of your hair back. Invest in a regenerative hair mask that you should apply once in two weeks to get a healthy and shiny mane.

What are Best Neymar’s Hairstyles?

1. Fauxhawk

In December 2011, Neymar appeared in the Club World Cup sporting a hairstyle that was more like a fauxhawk, his bleached into blond hair growing in all directions. The spikes were gelled to stand upright at the center and were more flamboyant and still stylish.

A faux hawk (or fauxhawk) is a men’s haircut that features short sides and a strip of longer hair that runs from the front to the back of the head. It’s a mohawk minus the shaved sides but still as stylish as the punk hairstyle!

Showing off this excellent cut are celebrity leading men Taylor Lautner, Elijah Wood, Josh Duhamel, and Jeremy Renner, who even made it their go-to style! And, who can forget David Beckham? By keeping your top hair long and your sides short like these men, you’ll find it easy to recreate the look anytime you desire.

Play it down during business hours and style it up in the evening – faux hawk haircuts allow you to switch between professional and punk whenever the need arises. Simply use your fingers to style your strands up into a crest using your product of choice.

Bea Petty, a California-based barber and owner of Shear Addiction Barber Shop does men’s fohawks and complements them with all sorts of fade, resulting in an intense contrast that makes the faux hawk even sexier. Consider your face shape and your hair length and density, plus if you want to add a matching beard, fade, or an undercut to complete the look.

How to cut a fauxhawk


Create a high horseshoe section above the recessions to the crown. Use the clipper over comb technique on the sides and back. Work from very short at the hairline to longer at the crown. Blend with scissors over comb technique.


Work with vertical section around the hat line and blunt cut to reduce weight. Blend with scissors over comb technique.


Move to the top and create a central section from the crown to the fringe area. Create your guide line at the desired length.


Work with horizontal sections from the back to the front and point cut using your guide line. Connect top and sides with vertical section at the hat line.


Blow-dry the hair with a brush to enhance the focal point and the texture created by the color.

2. Short Platinum Hair with Mohawk

Neymar loves colors, and he also loves going full platinum blonde. Time and again, he has rocked the platinum looks.

The hairstyle made quite a statement. It is also one of Neymar’s most fashionable looks. Short but bold style, Neymar owned the look.

The mohawk (also referred to as a Mohican) is a hairstyle in which, in the most common variety, both sides of the head are shaven, leaving a strip of noticeably longer hair in the center. It is today worn as an emblem of non-conformity.

The mohawk is also sometimes referred to as an iro in reference to the Iroquois (who include the Mohawk people), from whom the hairstyle is supposedly derived – though historically the hair was plucked out rather than shaved. Additionally, hairstyles bearing these names more closely resemble those worn by the Pawnee, rather than the Mohawk, Mohicans, Mohegan, or other groups whose names are phonetically similar.

While the mohawk hairstyle takes its name from the people of the Mohawk nation, an indigenous people of North America who originally inhabited the Mohawk Valley in upstate New York, the association comes from Hollywood and more specifically from the popular 1939 film Drums Along the Mohawk starring Henry Fonda.

The Mohawk and the rest of the Iroquois confederacy (Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Tuscarora, and Oneida) in fact wore a square of hair on the back of the crown of the head. The Mohawk did not shave their heads when creating this square of hair but rather pulled the hair out, small tufts at a time. The following is a first-hand account of James Smith, who was captured during the French and Indian war and adopted into the Mohawk tribe:

[A] number of Indians collected about me and one of them began to pull hair out of my head. He had some ashes on a piece of bark in which he frequently dipped his fingers in order to take a firmer hold, and so he went on as if he had been plucking a turkey until he had all the hair clean out of my head, except a small spot about three or four inches square on my crown the remaining hair was cut and three braids formed which were decorated

Therefore, a true hairstyle of the Mohawks was one of plucked-out hair, leaving a three-inch square of hair on the back crown of the head with three short braids of hair decorated. The three braids of a True Mohawk hairstyle are represented today on traditional headdresses of the Mohawk known as a Gustoweh. Mohawk Gustowehs have three upright eagle feathers that represent the three braids of long ago. When not decorated, the very short braids were allowed to hang loose as seen in Good Peter's image in the referenced article.

To cut a mohawk, you need somewhat longer hair (it should preferably be more than 1 inch length). Before cutting, decide on how you plan to stylise it – are you going to gel it or let it lay (lazyhawk)? In this case you might prefer doing an undercut instead.

You might find it handy to keep a comb near by to help you disentangle and separate the hair, and a pair of scissors for the final trimming and touch up’s. Obviously, you’ll need hair clippers, but that’s about it.

3. Afro Hairstyle with Undercut

It is a simple haircut that Neymar effortlessly pulls off.

He came up with afro hair on the top with a faded undercut. It showed off his natural curls and his natural color.

He gave his afro hairstyle a little twist and made it look modern. Who could better pull off this retro look with a modern twist than Neymar? Simple yet stylish, those with curly hair can follow a similar hairstyle to look as fashionable as Neymar.

An Afro is a hairstyle produced by a natural growth of kinky hair, or specifically styled with chemical curling products by individuals with naturally curly or straight hair. The hairstyle can be created by combing the hair away from the scalp, dispersing a distinctive curl pattern, and forming the hair into a rounded shape, much like a cloud or puff ball.

For people with wavy or straight hair, the hair style is created with the help of permanent hair structure-changing creams or gels and/or other solidifying liquids to temporarily hold the hair in place. Particularly popular in the African American community of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the hairstyle is often shaped and maintained with the assistance of a wide-toothed comb colloquially known as an Afro pick.

What’s interesting about the Afro is its cultural trajectory. In the early 1970s, the’fro was perceived as a major political statement that would’ve never appeared in the pages of a mainstream publication, especially as a hair tutorial. It didn’t take long for the hairstyle to become associated with Black ass-kicking thanks to the rise of Blaxploitation films, including Shaft, Foxy Brown and Coffy. It was seen as less militant as The Jackson 5, Sly & the Family Stone, Billy Preston and other acts appeared on television shows, such as Soul Train to promote their music, while showing off their bountiful Afros as they worked the stage.

With braided styles such as cornrows starting to take center stage the Afro’s appeal waned in the mid-1970s. Throughout the 1980s and for much of the 1990s, the Afro was pretty much non-existent. That is until the late 1990s when the Natural Hair movement as we know it today was getting underway. Black women started trading in their relaxers and weaves for their God-given kinks, coils, curls and waves.

So, what’s the phenomenon behind the Afro? Well, it’s our hair in its most natural form, but that’s only part of the phenomenon. It’s a way to fight the status quo without saying a word. And while some argue there’s nothing African about the Afro, many Black Americans view the hairstyle as a symbol of their Black heritage, and it makes us feel good whether it’s African or not.

Another part of the Afro’s appeal? It’s complexity. One minute it’s seen as radical and “sticking it to the man,” then the next, it takes us back to a time when everybody was rocking gold medallion necklaces and platform shoes.

4. Black Hair with Blonde Highlights and Fade

One of Neymar‘s best hairstyles is his black hair with blonde highlights and fade. It is one of his fashionable looks and one of his fans’ most loved looks.

While he was seen sporting a mohawk of spiky hairstyle, this look was totally different from what the fans were used to seeing.

Neymar’s temp faded, and blonde highlighted part of his hair that is naturally black hair. By dying his curly ends blonde, he had taken the style further up a notch.

Originally worn in the 40s and 50s in the US military, and continued in black and hispanic barbershops, the fade really got elevated into "popular culture" in the 90s with people like Will Smith in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

The fade haircut would have previously been seen as an edgier hairstyle that may not have been accepted in the workplace, but with the resurgence of the fade in the last few years has come a great acceptance for rocking these sort of styles.

And with that it wasn't until the last few years the fade haircut has taken a huge leap into all hair types with more and more gents looking to rock it combined with almost any hairstyle imaginable.

Tapers, skin fades, low, medium & high fades are all types of fade haircut and it's easy to get confused by what they are and how to ask for them.

The fade just defines the style of the back and sides, it's not a style on its own. Figure out which style you want on top too.

A fade again just defines the style. It's not a length on it's own. You'll want to know how short you want to go with the fade just like any other haircut - skin fade (completely bald), 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3?

If you're not sure start with a say a number 2 to be safe and ask your barber to work down if you want it shorter. It's better to start longer than go too short and not like it. Tell your barber beforehand though that you're not sure how short you want to go, then they can do a test area on your head so you can see. The last thing you want is to waste your barbers time, they finish the fade and you say "can we go shorter actually".

5. Faux Hawk with Shaved Sides


We know that Neymar loves Mohawks. On top of that, he rocks every mohawk style he has ever come up with.

In August 2013, Neymar gelled his hair down to tame his hair for one of the richest football clubs, Barcelona. He also shaved the sides, though he ditched the dyes again.

Neymar is indeed one of the finest players now. Undoubtedly, he has the capability to grab the attention of the fans while he is on the field. He also has the look and style to fascinate people, on and off the field. Let's hope to see some more fun hairstyles in the coming days!

Neymar combined his favorite style and favorite color, blonde, to create a new look for this hairstyle. One can say this look is his signature hairstyle.

The blonde highlight gives the hair a more striking element, while the mohawk adds a cool and stylish feature. This look is definitely one of Neymar‘s best looks.

Haircuts with shaved sides are cool, clean cut and easy to wear. Whether it’s an undercut or fade, shaved sides emphasize hair on top and make hair seem thicker.

Fade haircuts taper down from short to shorter or down to the skin. These shaved sides haircuts have mid to high fades. Undercuts are similar to high fades because they shave hair from the top of the temples down but it is all one length.

On top, hair can be short or long, styled or loose, curly or straight. Really, anything goes. For longer styles or more challenging hair types, shaved sides make hair easier to wear.

6. Long mohawk

In a friendly match against the United States in August 2010, Neymar appeared as a part of Brazil with a Mohawk, which now was carefully stylized to look more ostentatious. This time, his hair strands were longer – or higher, to be more accurate – and very distinctly formed into a Mohawk.

The mohawk haircut, which came after the daring Iroquois haircut, used to leave a punk haircut impression for those who saw it. And once a modern, grown-up man has a look at its classic variation, he probably won’t go for such a high-maintenance, rebellious cut.

Thanks to the nowadays’ trendsetters, mohawk has gained the needed variability. And now, this cut can provide you with lots of contemporary approaches that you can wear for any occasion possible.

The history of the mohawk is not over! First, it was popular with native people of North America. Then some punk rock stars from MTV made it a thing. Today, this cut can suit anyone: from careless teens to presentable businessmen.

Initially, mohawks were famous among restless guys with disobedient attitudes, which is why this cut is always referred to as punk hair. Their dramatic appearance is the main reason why the cuts are still in the spotlight: they feature the contrast of the shaved sides and an outstanding, long strip of hair that runs from the hairline to the back of the head. Though the top is usually spiked for a more eye-catching look, the styling can be more diverse, modern, and practical.

The types of mohawks, as well as their styling ways, are countless. Whether you want it to be short and curly or long and straight, it can offer you a lot of ideas to choose from. It doesn’t matter what cuts and styles you like the most. Today you’ll find a mohawk that will suit your preferences, that’s for sure.

Keeping up with your daily mohawk hairstyle can be a great deal; it’s a high-maintenance cut, after all. That means that you should fade, shave or buzz the sides of your men’s medium hairstyle regularly. As for the top, for spiky mohawk styles, you’ll need a strong-hold pomade or gel and use some heat to secure the look. And if you want to discover how many mohawk hairstyles you can create, welcome to the inspo-part!

Long hair mohawk haircut has a lot in common with its classic version: the sides are shaved, and the top is super long. But it also can be different; as different as you want. You can preserve the bold tradition of rock stars and sport a long hair mohawk, but keeping the sides tapered and the top sleek.

7. Spaghetti Blonde Haircut


The number 1 Neymar’s best look goes to his spaghetti blonde haircut. We know that he loves a blonde; this look was one of the best-loved hairstyles by his fans worldwide.

The hairstyle might look messy, but it is done so intentionally. Neymar colored his curls blonde, while his roots have a natural black color.

The hairstyle is both modern and looks contemporary. When dyed blonde, Neymar’s naturally curly hair gives it an artistic look, while the shaved side makes the hairstyle look very stylish.

The overall look is held in place with a light gel application. Hands down, it is one of his best looks. This was Neymar‘s World Cup hairstyle and was the most searched hairstyle on the internet.

Who Is Neymar?

Neymar is a Brazilian footballer who plays for Brazil national team and the French club ‘Paris Saint-Germain.’ He is known as one of the world’s leading footballers. Neymar, like many other football players in Brazil, started off as a street footballer. But his father, who had played professional football, helped him in taking the game seriously so that he could become a professional.

Neymar joined the youth ranks at ‘FC Santos’ when he was only 11 years old. In fact he was accepted into the youth program of the popular Spanish club ‘Real Madrid’ but he decided to stay back in Brazil after he was offered a higher pay. Throughout his time at ‘Santos,’ Neymar scored one spectacular goal after another, and his skills became the talk of the town. As a result, the biggest clubs in the world vied with each other to sign him.

In 2013, he signed with ‘Barcelona’ and immediately made an impact before finally winning the treble for the Catalan club in 2015. During the course of his career, Neymar went on to become a prominent player for the Brazilian national team and helped his team reach the semi-final of the 2014 ‘World Cup’ which was held in Brazil. Neymar is without a doubt one of the leading footballers in the world and is all set to become one of the greatest footballers of his generation.

In 2011, Neymar won the ‘World Soccer Young Player of the Year’ award. In the same year, he also won the ‘FIFA Puskas Award’ for scoring the best goal of the year.

He won the ‘Golden Ball’ for his performance at the ‘FIFA Federations Cup’ in 2013. He was named ‘La Liga Best World Player’ after the 2014-15 season.

Neymar has always been a prodigious talent since he made his debut as a teenager for ‘Santos’ in Brazil. But his greatest achievement as a footballer is his haul of 39 goals during the 2014-15 season, at the end of which his club ‘Barcelona’ won the treble. He scored 10 goals in the ‘Champions League’ as well, and ended up as the joint top scorer.
