Whether known by his full name or simply by the nickname CR7, Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably the best soccer player in history. Few can come even close to his natural skills on the field, seeing as he is so gifted.
However, there is one more area in which he has few contenders – his looks. And a big part of that is his hair. Here are 60 Cristiano Ronaldo haircut ideas that will inspire you to look just as good as CR7 does.
1. The Stylized Mohawk Cristiano Ronaldo Haircut
Cristiano Ronaldo is very fond of a good, old Mohawk. Therefore, we will be seeing a lot of those on this list, in various forms, shapes, and lengths. The first one is this stylized Mohawk, complete with two deep set razor lines.
2. The Elegant Cristiano Ronaldo Haircut
Even though he typically sports spikes and Mohawks, Cristiano can also turn it up a notch when the occasion calls for it. Here he is with a haircut that has shaved sides and long bangs, swept very sleek over his head.
3. Goldie Locks
Taking a cue from fellow soccer player David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo has dyed his hair blonde too. Well, not necessarily blonde as much as golden, before the Ballon d’Or Awards ceremony where he hoped he would win yet again.
4. The Flat Top Cristiano Ronaldo Haircut
Here is one truly adorable look for the soccer player. The sides are cleanly cut, showing no signs of being shaved or faded, while the top is flat and swept to one side, reminding us a bit of the Caesar.
5. Short Spikes and Lots of Gel
If there is one thing Cristiano Ronaldo loves, that is his hair gel. We can only imagine he goes through cases of the stuff every month and it’s a good thing that he does because he looks gorgeous.
6. Golden Hair and Spikes
Here is a variation on his golden hair which we’ve mentioned above. He shaped all his golden tresses into very long and chunky spikes on top of his head. His primary tool? A can of hair gel, of course, which you should stock up on as well.
7. The Mini Quiff
As far as Cristiano Ronaldo haircuts go, this quiff is one of our favorites. It’s so simple, and yet so charming, giving him boyish good looks. He is also sporting here what we believe to be a color close to his natural shade, which is dark brown.
8. The Waxy High Top
Here is an absolutely gorgeous look. His bangs are curled up in an oversized high top. The stylist has made very good use of his natural curly hair and brought it to heel using a lot of hair wax.
High tops are super cool, we’ve got some high tops fades here.
9. The Uber Flat Top Cristiano Ronaldo Haircut
As much as he loves his spikes, Ronaldo also loves his flat top. Here he is at an event, where he donned fake glasses and an uber flat top. To copy this look, make sure to use as much hair gel as needed, especially if you have curly hair, just like CR7s.
10. The Curly Cristiano Ronaldo Haircut
Back in the day, when he wasn’t as famous and as into fashion and styling as he is today, Cristiano used to sport much more natural-looking hairstyles. Here you can see that he has naturally curly hair, which he used to wear in medium length.
11. Line Patterns
Ronaldo is also very fond of line patterns on his scalp. In other words, he loves to cut his hair very short and then have his hairstylist create different patterns in his hair. Here he has one big line going all across his head and four smaller ones on the side.
12. The College Boy
If there were any photos of this beloved soccer player going to classes, this is what they would have looked like. The clean shaved sides and slick side-swept top make him look like he’s heading for the library.
13. Practice Hair
One of the reasons why Cristiano Ronaldo is such a huge inspiration for all of us is that his hair looks absolutely amazing at all times. Yes, even when he is training with his team. This is a flat top Mohawk with a short, deep shaved line on one side.
14. High Bangs
Even though it seems like he has sported 1000 different haircuts over the years, what Cris actually does is hold on to the same one and style it differently. His sides are always shaved or properly trimmed, while his bangs are always long and perfect.
15. The Faux Mohawk Cristiano Ronaldo Haircut
Here he is putting his naturally curly hair to good use by sporting a very hip faux Mohawk. If you want to recreate this look, you will need some hair gel. As you can see from this shot, Ronaldo’s hair is positively shining with the hair care product.

When he runs out of hair gel, we presume, the famous Cristiano Ronaldo goes for a more natural look. Here it is, in superbly simple finger waves, which he obtained and kept in place with a touch of hair wax.
18. The Young Cristiano Ronaldo Haircut
This is a variation of the look he used to wear when he was young. That look had two main components – curls and blonde hair dye. Gradually, he began to let go of both of them and turn to his much beloved hair gel. Here he is in the process.
If he weren’t a soccer player, Cristiano Ronaldo could have easily been a model. He has the figure and good looks for it. Moreover, thanks to his amazing stylists, he also has the hair for it.
20. The Half Up Half Down Cristiano Ronaldo Haircut
He received more awards for his outstanding talent than we care to mention. However, we are here to take a look at his gorgeous haircuts. This is a rather special one, with a side parting. Three quarters of the hair in the front is puffed up, while the rest is gelled down into perfection.
21. Variations on a Note
