Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi might be the most well-known La Liga players across the world… But if you take a look at the top lists there’s certainly one player, who’s outshining at the moment: Antoine Griezmann from Atlético de Madrid!
Atlético Madrid is currently topping LaLiga Santander and so is Griezmann as the top scorer. The French forward is only 25 years old and yet he became the top scorer of this summer’s UEFA Euro 2016 scoring double the amount of CR7 (6 goals against 3). There’s no doubt about who takes the title as being king striker in the world of soccer 2016!
The Hairstyle Behind All Those Header Goals
Griezmann has had a couple of different hairstyles throughout his career as a professional footballer, for example, a bleached hairdo‘ and a side-parted do’. The two previous, we already did on Slikhaar TV, so now it’s time for the third Griezmann hairstyle!
Step 1: Prep Your Hair Before The Cut
Get your hair nice and ready for the haircut with a quick wash using By Vilain Skyline Shampoo. It removes any old products and makes it easier to manage throughout the remaining steps.
Step 2: Comb, Part & Blow
Straighten out the hair by running a comb through it, and then part it into sections. This is done by forming a line from both sides of the temple of the head which connects together at the back. The hair is then combed away to both sides of the parting (either up or down) using a By Vilain Comb.
Lock the hair into place with a quick blowdry.
Step 3: Lose Weight
Clip the hair on the sides (3-6mm) and in the back (3mm-1cm) in a gradient that goes from thin at the bottom, to thick at the top. Finish this step by trimming the hair beneath the side-parting into its final form using a pair of scissors.
Step 4: Length Of Time
Now it’s time to get the top part of the hair kicked into shape! With comb and scissors in hand, cut a gradient from the top center (2cm) towards the fringe (4-5 cm). The extra length at the fringe will later be locked into Griezmann’s signature side-swept style.
Step 5: Trim Edges & Thin Out
Using a small shaver or mini clipper, create a clear outline around the edges near the side, back and ears, in order to separate the skin and hair.
Thin out the top section of the hair with a pair of thinning scissors to make
the hair light and add volume.
Step 6: Moister & Dry
Next up comes the 3 in 1 combo! First, spray your hair with By Vilain Freestyler – this makes your hair more susceptible to hair products and also helps distribute the product better.
Then apply Powermade into the moist hair and groom from left to right. This shapes the hair into a side-swept style.
Lastly, blow-dry the hair from the front to the back. This melts the Powermade into the hair, strengthening the hold and locks the hair into position.
Blow-drying from the front to the back pushes the hair back, giving it the “slicked back” shape.
Step 7: Get The Details Right
It’s time to use a pair of scissors one more time! Now that the hairstyle is nearly done, you’ve to make sure everything looks nice. Make sure to trim any areas you may have missed.
Step 8: Wax Up!
Rub a small scoop of Silver Fox in the hair to pull off the do’. Silver Fox is perfect for an extreme hold and a shiny finish.
Gently groom the wax into the side-swept style as you did in step 6. Combining the Powermade and Silver Fox creates an extra strong hold, guaranteeing that your new style stays firmly in place throughout the entire day.
Step 9: Razor Sharp Finish
Gently shave off the small hairs around the nape of the neck to create the final touch – and PRESTO! Your hairstyle is ALL done.
Now you’re all set to go out and score in style, just like Griezmann.
