Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior or simply Neymar – the bad boy of the football world. We’re looking at the thing that we love most about the Brazilian player – other than his mad skills on the field, of course: his trademark Neymar Haircut.
Neymar’s life came to everyone’s attention after the footballer stood out for his impressive abilities from an early age. He was a star for Santos FC as a teenager, winning four consecutive Player of the Year awards and becoming one of the most popular public figures in Brazil.
Neymar leapt to Europe to join FC Barcelona for the start of the 2013-2014 season, becoming an important member of a club that has claimed numerous domestic and international titles. After leading the Brazilian footballers to their first Olympic gold medal in 2016, the striker moved to Paris Saint-Germain, France, the following year.
Neymar’s life and the Mohawk style years
Neymar is the first Brazilian player to choose the Mohawk haircut style. Nowadays, almost every youth football fan in Brazil gets a haircut like this in an attempt to copy their hero. He is also the first and only Brazilian footballer to appear on the cover of Time Magazine.
Changing from year to year, or even several times a year, Neymar Jr.’s hair has his league of fans by now, not to mention all the men out there who want to copy it. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of amazing Neymar haircut ideas that will surely serve you as inspiration.
1. High and Gelled Neymar Haircut
If there’s one thing we can give Neymar credit for, hair-wise, is the fact that he took a lot of haircuts which we now consider outdated and completely made them his own. Here he is sporting a gelled high top with shaved sides.
2. Combed Forward Long Bangs
As you might have already noticed if you are a fan, Neymar loves his fringe. He does everything he can to highlight it and cover his forehead. Here he is doing just that, with a very simple, yet effective haircut.
3. The Bleached Blonde Neymar Hairstyle
This style is all about the faux bleached Mohawk, which Neymar Jr. adores. He proudly pairs it with long bangs, which he pulls over his forehead, in a signature hairstyle that has made headlines.
4. The Elegant Neymar Haircut
Even though he is all about playing sports and being comfortable, the soccer player can also kick it up a notch and take the elegant road. This hairstyle has trimmed (but not shaved) sides, and a wavy top.
5. Messy and Relaxed Neymar Hairstyle
This is what Neymar’s hair looks like when he is not wearing copious amounts of hair gel or wax in it. It’s long and relaxed, giving him a roguish look and boyish charm.
6. Short and Curly Hairstyles
When he was younger and hadn’t discovered the wonders of the hair gel yet, Neymar used to wear his hair as natural as possible and cut it very short. As you can well see, he has his natural curls as well as his natural dark hair color showing here.
7. The Platinum Blonde Neymar Haircut
When the hunger for blonde strikes, it seems to hit everyone in the Barcelona soccer team. Apart from Neymar himself, who is sporting a short and very blonde hairstyle, you can also see Lionel Messi in the foreground, wearing the same shade.
8. The Brush Top
Here is Neymar wearing a more natural look. His hair has been cut down to a minimum leaving only the top, which resembles a brush. In other words, it’s spiky, messy, and very rugged.
9. The Quiff and Mohawk Neymar Hairstyle
The mohawk is one of Neymar’s favorite hairstyles. Therefore, he has done everything in his power to keep things interesting in that department. For example, Neymar’s mohawk is styled with a quiff too, in this photo.

11. Mohawk with Highlights
We don’t know if the space movie was his inspiration for this haircut or not, but this is surely what it looks like from behind. The hairstyle is a spiky Mohawk, flecked with blonde highlights. It also leaves his neck tattoo exposed, which is a plus.
12. Long Spikes Neymar Hairstyle
Taking a cue from Cristiano Ronaldo, here is Neymar showing his love for spikes. You will need a hefty amount of hair gel or wax for this one. Also, if need be, you can use a straightening iron.

For this formal suit and bow tie occasion, the soccer player has opted to dye his hair a dark honey shade. He is also sporting a very simple and elegant hairstyle, which you can easily copy.
14. Two Shades of Mohawk with Shaved Sides

15. Neymar Haircut with Messy Spikes
As you can well see, not all spiked hairstyles have to be formal and well-groomed. You can also take a walk down memory lane back to the nineties and spike up your gelled hair into a messy tangle of spikes.
