5 of the best hairstyles in the A-League

-

Whether footballers get their haircut every week, every month, or haven’t paid a visit to their barbers for a while, there are plenty of great styles going around. Here are the top five cuts from the 2020/21 campaign.

5: Ben Folami

Some traditionalists may perceive Folami’s hairstyle as a little bit different but it is one of the most common and stylish modern-day cuts.

The Melbourne Victory and Olyroos striker is on loan from English League One club, Ipswich Town and had his first taste of A-League football, when he started against Brisbane Roar in their opening fixture.

The young attacker is an exciting prospect up front and certainly stands out with his orange curls on top.

4: Lachlan Rose

The hairstyle I have always wanted but could never have. Long bleach blonde hair swept back with a black sweat band, Lachlan Rose is already attracting attention in both his and Macarthur FC’s first season in the top flight.

Lachie’s elegant hair matches his playing style, with the 21-year-old Australian schoolboy showing his class at the top level in his first three A-League matches for the Bulls.

The youngster thought he had a debut goal in Macarthur’s inaugural match against Western Sydney Wanderers, instead being ruled offside. Luckily for Rose and the Bulls, they still recorded a 1-0 win and sit in third position on the table after a loss and a draw in their next two outings.

3: Jamie Maclaren

Socceroo and Melbourne City sharpshooter Jamie Maclaren is entering his seventh A-League season and is always the man opposition coaches worry about.

Not that he would ever go missing on the pitch, but if he did you could spot his new blonde tips from a mile away.

The dangerous striker is rocking the new style in 2021 and pulls it off, compared to others who have tried it in the past and failed miserably. It does help that he is Jamie Maclaren.

2: Alex Rufer

Another elegant hairstyle which gives Zlatan a run for his money, Alex Rufer has a proper man bun that is classy and sleek.

The New Zealand born midfielder was controversially red carded by referee Stephen Lucas for his challenge on Macarthur FC attacking midfielder Denis Genreau in their 1-1 draw with the Bulls.

Despite A-League referees’ adviser Strebre Delovski revealing Lucas made the wrong decision, Rufer remained as calm as he could and lucky he did. We would hate him to get into a fight and give someone a reason to pull out any of his hair.

1: Nicolai Müller

While some may argue this hairstyle is the worst, it is the one we love to see and really is what we need. It’s interesting, it stands out, and is sure to attract plenty of attention.

Müller will be hoping his hair isn’t the only talking point this year and he can help the Wanderers play finals football for the first time since the 2015/16 A-League season.

The former German international, who spent 18 years playing in Germany, is an experienced campaigner. You cannot miss him with his bleach blonde ‘birds’ nest’.
