Worst Haircuts in Sport


These days, most sport stars have money – loads and loads of money. As Cristiano Ronaldo has proved since he shot to fame as a teenager, having enough money will eventually help you become stylish and handsome. It is no surprise then that most of the biggest sport stars are also the biggest fashion and style symbols… the same, however, can not be said for these guys.

I have scoured the internet for the worst hairstyles in sport and found some real gems…

Abel Xavier



Highlighted cornrows with a dash of sheeps wool. Abel Xavier is a Portuguese Footballer – he’s played all over the world but clearly he did not pick up any fashion sense along the way.

Alen Biley



The former Football League striker went for the ‘Highlighted with Lemon Juice Mullet’ look.

Andre Agassi

Andre Agassi


Andre needs no introduction. He’s been around since the start of Tennis. These days he sports a classic bald look – much better than this Skunk-tail he had way back when.

Bacary Sagna



Playing for Arsenal FC in London, you’d think Bacary would be a lot more fashionable than his blond dreadlock-curtains make him look.

Carlos Valderrama

Carlos is another former Football player and all I really want to ask him is: “Is it real gold?”

Dennis Rodman

Dennis Rodman


Dennis is a retired pro basketball player who played for most of the big American teams. Most of his hairstyles have been as colourful as this, slightly resembling a piece of candy.

Giovanni Simeone



This River Plate striker went for the half-Hare-Krishna, half-balding-old-man look. Can’t say it works for him.

Rene Higuita


He  might be known for the Scorpion Save but Rene is also infamous for his bear-like mane.




One of the biggest names in the game, Ronaldo rocked up at the World Cup with the Bermuda Triangle on his head. Strangely, kids all over the world loved this style and forced petrified parents to take them to the barber to replicate his style.

Simon Whitlock



Simon is a professional Darts player – born in Australia, need I say more?

Taribo West

Taribo West


This Nigerian born Footballer loved his country so much, he died his hair green. Well, I say hair, it could also be some Nigerian worms that invaded his head.

Tim Tebow



‘MERICA!! Land of the free. Can we really blame him for living the American Dream? Also, they play ‘Football’ with an oval ball, using their hands…

Djibril Cisse

This Frenchman takes the proverbial cake when it comes to bad hair days. Back in his Liverpool days, he basically had a hairstyle for every game. Here are some of the worst ones…







Did I miss any other bad hairstyles? Let me know in the comments below!
