The Best Men's Hair Of Rio Olympics 2017
The Rio Olympics are a great celebration of athletic achievement, but they are also fab place to spot fashion trends and styles that are easy for the average guy to get at their stylist. Here are some of the best men's haircuts and styles at the Rio Olympics.
Micheal Phelps and Ryan Lochte
Phelps likes to keep his hair short and with good reason as much time as he spends in the pool. Phelps goes for the conservative 1960s Mad Men look with a close-cropped side sweep that has incredible texture. Phelps wears his natural color, but we could see him adding some highlights one day.
Ryan Lochte has a spiky platinum cut that draws the eye and is just a bit shaggy. This is a look that clearly is for the minimalist that still cares about style. A bit of gel after a swim and we bet he looks great each and every time.
With his high top pompadour and close undercut, Sam chooses a style that he can work with both in the gym and out. This look drew some attention at the games and is simple enough that any guy can get the look at a regular barber.
International Soccer Style
Soccer players are often known for their great hairstyles. Fades and flat tops were seen among side sweeps and other styles.
The Man Bun With Undercut
Of course, the man bun was seen at the Rio Olympics. Keeping hair out of the way when competing is essential as you can see from this gymnast. Not a hard style by a long shot. If you got enough hair and a hair tie, then you can get this look too. This undercut fade only takes a quick trip to the barber.
Carlin has a fabulous rounded but longer on top cut. This fade with the volume on top is a clean and sophisticated look that is easy for the Rugby player to keep up with. We could see this look being taken up a notch with a stenciled design or letting the top grow out even more.
Alas the US Rio Olympic Swim team is on here a lot, but that is because they have so many great hairstyles. Ryan has a classic crew cut that no doubt takes a bit of time with the Clippers to keep short. This is a very basic cut that is suitable for the minimalist that wants to look put together all the time and doesn't enjoy having to spend time with a brush or comb.
The Key To The Olympic Look
Athletes need simple hair styles that they can maintain no matter how hard a day they have to put in. Keeping haircuts short to mid length and simple and experimenting with colors are all popular ways to get more out of hair while not having to spend too much time styling each day.
