We love hearing what fans think and Head & Shoulders have done just that in promotion of the Men Ultra range as part of their #JUSTWATCHME campaign, with a survey conducted around some of football’s most iconic hairstyles this summer and a famous hairstylist giving fans exclusive football hairstyle tutorials.
According to Landry Agres, “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.”
To celebrate, we thought we’d look at some of the hair styles that have grabbed headlines over the years and there are a fair few to choose from.
After Head & Shoulders put the question to pollsters, the results are in. David Beckham’s braids from 2003 has been voted the best hairstyle in the history of the English national team.
The Madrid and United winger also got the nod for having the most iconic hairstyle of the national team.
Becks’ skinhead hairstyle was voted to be the most iconic. Understandable perhaps as the winger was donning the skinhead look as he scored arguably the most memorable England goal of the 21st century, the last minute free-kick against Greece that secured England’s place at the 2002 World Cup finals.
On the flip side of the coin, Bobby Charlton’s dodgy comb over is considered to be the worst hairstyle in the history of the England national team.
Charlton comes from a different generation of no nonsense footballers. Despite their dodgy barnets they did manage to win the World Cup in 1966 – England’s sole success in the tournament.
The survey, from shampoo brand Head & Shoulders, took votes from 2,000 football fans in eight countries.
To celebrate football’s biggest competition and mark the arrival of the new Men Ultra range, Head & Shoulders has launched their new campaign – #JUSTWATCHME – empowering the world to be bold, brave and to celebrate their hairstyles through the confidence of having a 100% flake-free scalp.
